Beautiful landscape design for Rockland County & Northern Bergen utilizing the best elements of hardscaping and landscaping

Alex Frezza is a third generation landscape designer who services Rockland County and Northern Bergen.  He has had the good fortune of having a grandfather who apprenticed and mastered the trade in Europe and passed the old world skills down to his father who immigrated to South America.  While in Argentina, Alex’s dad learned the Latin styles of hardscaping and landscaping & landscape design and passed both the European and Latin techniques and designs to his son.  In 1991, Alex moved to the US where he studied the American techniques and design styles.  He has completed over 40 seminars on landscape designs and techniques as well as design software.  Every year he participates in 2-3 training seminars to keep his knowledge base current and his design skills sharp.

Quality Landscape Design can pay for itself in Rockland County and Northern Bergen

A review of research by Alex X. Niemiera, a horticulturist at Virginia Tech, found that a well-landscaped home had a significant price advantage over a home with no landscaping. That advantage ranged from 5.5 percent (in the Deep South) to 12.7 percent (in the North).     That is $27,500 – $63,500 on a $500,000 home and $55,000 – $127,000 on a $1,000,000 home!

Bob Vila, in his article, “Landscaping: A Good Investment,” states that If you are considering selling, good landscape design can add up to 20% of value to your home. Make sure to follow these basic rules in order to get the best return on your investment.

Of course a well-landscaped yard with curb appeal is key to selling a home quickly.  Whether you are hiring a landscape designer to help sell your home or if you just want your yard to be beautiful, it is a fact that it will significantly increase the value of your home.  If done properly, it can actually give you a very nice return on your investment.

How to pick a Landscape Designer in Rockland County & Northern Bergen

Here are ten tips for finding the best landscape designer for your needs:

  1. Taste is subjective and everyone’s is unique.  It is very important that you choose a landscape designer who will listen to your dreams and then help you articulate them until he has captured them and designed your project to make them come true.
  2. Pick a designer who you like and can communicate with.
  3. Find someone who can implement your unique dream and does not provide “cookie-cutter design,” with your yard looking the same as all of their projects… make sure that they have an eye for design.
  4. There is no replacement for creativity and skill. Review their website for their online portfolio and samples of their landscape designs.
  5. Make sure that they can design your landscaping in a manner that amplifies the architecture of your home and does not detract from or fight with it.
  6. It is important to work with someone who can bring the dream to life on time and within your budget.
  7. It is important to incorporate the right amounts of landscaping and hardscaping features to give you pleasure and joy for years to come.
  8. A true pro will be able to design large projects in stages and implement them over time if budget is a concern.  The consummate designer will be able to accomplish this with each stage looking beautiful in its own right and then being further enhanced with each ensuing stage.
  9. Your designer should have years of experience, and have all the proper insurances and licenses.
  10.  Make sure your designer lays out the project clearly in the contract and specifies under what conditions there will be extra charges.  You should never get to the end of a project and find hidden costs and “surprises.”
