Thanks for the video. If you don't mind me asking – how do you draw something complex like the existing pool in Sketchup? Do you import measurements or draw it in the program by hand? Thanks.

Went to university for landscape architecture. Been designing/ installing residential landscapes for 8 years.
Was great information to refresh on and some fantastic key points.
1. Houzz
2. Having 3 main hubs connected
3. Balancing the site with architectural features
4. Using models to scale areas
5. Keeping site lines open

Great video!

Hi Jeff, Im looking to design with boulders/river rock into a slope and wanted to see if you had any tips for that? The slope doesn't have great soil so tough to grow anything on it so was also planning on putting planters in between the rocks and then cover with mulch so that it appears the grasses and other greenery are growing around the rocks naturally.
Great channel btw!

A Duncan says:

When you measure a slope do you use the actual ground measurement or the overhead measurement on your plan?  It could be 40' (long/tall) using a ground wheel up a 30 degree slope but the actual measurement if it wasn't sloped would be say 20'.  If I use 40' then it doesn't correlate to the actual lot size.  But if I use 20' and want a plant every 5' up the slope that doesn't work either.  How should it be done?  THank you.

The question about how much does a Landscape Architect make per year. I can only answer for what I am familiar with in northern California. The low range for starting with a bachelors degree in our area is $45-50K/ year. How high it goes has a lot to do with how senior your position is and what type of work you focus on. My knowledge of the high end is $150K+/year. I have seen public jobs working for cities and so forth offering 70-100k and benefits in our area.

Thanks so much for sharing your expertise. I would be interested in seeing creative ways to hide utilities such as poles, wires and meters that are in the yard.
