Q. I'd like to find a designer who can draw up a five-year plan for me to re-design my yard and flower beds to increase bloom and visual interest. I probably need to do most of the work myself to limit costs. How do I go about finding a designer who can meet my needs in my rural area?

A. You can find a list of local designers who work in your area using the Find a Professional page on our website.

  • Got to the Find a Professional page
  • Choose Designers from the pull-down menu
  • Click Search Using Your Location
  • You will then be asked to enter your postal code to get accurate results.
  • Click OK
Finding the right designer is important and using the above-noted information is the right way to proceed. Most people are worried about overall cost, but having a final plan or design enables you to build only those parts of the garden for which you have the money and time. Having a plan to work towards is the best way to ensure you get your dream garden.

Good luck!
