Designing landscapes and pools in Arizona presents several challenges that designers and installation crews must overcome due to various hidden variables. Many communities are situated over old citrus groves or farms, while others are located on steep, rocky hillsides, each posing unique challenges for the design process. The designers must possess an in-depth knowledge of horticulture to comprehend how soil conditions, drainage, and terrain can affect plant material and dictate specific plant locations. Additionally, such features affect the excavation and installation process for hardscapes and patios, requiring extra base fill or footers.

The pool and landscape designers must also be well-versed in the plethora of materials available for use in Phoenix. With nearly a dozen materials to construct a patio, the colors, sizes, and shapes can differ, not to mention the costs. For clients, this implies that designers must be highly knowledgeable about materials and the geographic area of the project to create a well-crafted design that is within budgetary constraints.

One of the significant benefits of choosing the Unique design team is that they have an excellent grasp of the cost of landscape materials and installation, as well as the cost of materials and installation for swimming pools. Homeowners often encounter difficulties when selecting between two contractors – one for the landscape and one for the pool – to create their dream yard. While they have a set budget, allocating it between the pool and landscape can be challenging. Typically, neither contractor will lower their bid to accommodate a larger landscape budget or a bigger pool budget. The solution is to hire a contractor who offers a free professional design and cost estimate for both landscaping and pool installation. This ensures that there are no issues with the budget, project responsibilities, scheduling, or blame games.

The Unique design team offers a wealth of knowledge and experience about landscapes, pools, and outdoor living spaces in general. They are eager to get to know each potential client to create a personalized design that exceeds expectations. During the initial meeting, the designers showcase their previous projects and ask several questions to understand the client’s expectations and preferences. Unlike other designers who prioritize meeting multiple clients daily, the Unique team focuses on quality over quantity. Their understanding of clients’ visualizations of the perfect yard is critical to crafting a custom landscape and pool design of unparalleled quality.

In conclusion, the challenges associated with designing landscapes and pools in Arizona are numerous. From soil conditions, drainage, and terrain to the availability of materials and budgetary constraints, designers and installation crews face multiple hurdles. However, the Unique design team offers a personalized approach that exceeds expectations and ensures a seamless design and installation process for both landscape and pool installation.
