Every beautiful landscape design project starts with a vision, but transforming that vision into a reality is typically a lot easier said than done. The heart of Ohio Valley Group’s passion is helping our clients make their landscaping dreams come true. That’s why we created the Vision Planner. The Vision Planner is an online questionnaire that’s easy to access and asks a variety of straightforward questions about your location, lifestyle, preferences, past projects, time constraints and more. Your answers will tell us about your needs, what you like, and perhaps more importantly what you don’t. The Vision Planner opens our lines of communication and helps us see the project from your perspective. Filling out the Vision Planner is the first step in creating the yard you’ve always wanted. Being able to clearly articulate your vision is a critical step in attaining your desired end result, but there are a number of other necessary steps to be completed along the way. We pride ourselves on a thorough design process that enables us to learn about you and your property and to discover your unique needs and wishes. The best way for us to do that is by working collaboratively with you from start to finish. Consider our Vision Planner the starting line, providing us with the key details we need to kickstart your landscape design project. The Vision Planner will ask questions ranging from your ideal timeframe to the hobbies your family enjoys so that we can really understand exactly what you’re looking for. The questions will tell us more about your general design preferences, what foliage you want to incorporate, the lighting and irrigation requirements you have and more. Your answers will inform us not only about your technical needs but also about the atmosphere you’re hoping to attain. You’ll start with...

How Can I Use the Vision Planner to Start My Landscaping Project?

3/12/2018

Most homeowners know that their property could use a little sprucing up, but the job can seem so complex that you don’t know where to begin. Don’t worry, The Ohio Valley Group can help! We are a landscaping company that specializes in designing and executing landscaping for residential and commercial properties. What is the Vision Planner? We know how hard it can be to put landscaping ideas into words, so we came up with the convenient Vision Planner that provides us with the information we need to help you. The Vision Planner is essentially an online form with questions that help you think about what you want to do with your space. Most of the questions are open-ended, enabling you to type in exactly what you want. There are also a few multiple-choice questions when the range of possible answers is finite, such as whether or not you currently have an irrigation system.  The Vision Planner also asks for your contact information, so we can discuss anything the questions didn’t address. How Will You Use Your Landscape? Next up is a series of questions that basically amount to “How will you use it?” If you regularly entertain a large number of people at once, we need to take that into consideration when making design choices. Likewise, any special events you have coming up may dictate what you want to be done and when you need it completed. What are the Important Features for Your Landscape? After that, the Vision Planner asks questions intended to help us determine important features. For example, what areas would you like us to focus on? Does your property have any special maintenance needs we should know about? These questions help us visualize your property and see what would work best for it from a design perspective. Then, we ask questions pertaining to your likes and dislikes. We need to know if you love a particular color or material so that we can include it in your final design. We also need to know if you dislike any specific colors and materials so that we know to avoid them. The Vision Planner also inquires about your tastes in plants, including whether or not you are interested in the gardening on your own to maintain certain species....
