If you’ve got a luxury home in Bozeman, MT, the last thing that you want is for the landscape to disappoint. You’re looking for high-end landscaping that matches your home’s caliber and wow factor.

A luxury home simply won’t look right with an average landscape that looks like everyone else’s.

That’s why we’re talking about some ideas for luxury landscaping. At the end of the day, the design should be entirely your own…but these ideas will at least get you started.

#1. A Luxury Landscaping Design Hinges on High-Quality Materials

One thing that homeowners don’t always think about is how important the materials are to the quality of your landscape design. Just like everything in life, there are different levels of quality for the landscaping materials used in your design…and if you go with cheap materials, you’re ultimately going to get subpar results.

One prime example is the use of natural stone.

Sure, they make pavers that look like natural stone, but there’s nothing truly like the real deal. There is a big aesthetic difference between pavers and natural stone when attempting to blend a landscape design with nature.

There is also a higher-end, classic look to natural stone that simply can’t be replicated.

When it comes to luxury landscaping, you want the highest quality materials. Natural stone will be your go-to choice for any hardscaping.

#2. A Luxury Landscaping Design Should Take a Fully Custom Approach

The word “custom” gets thrown around a lot and that can diminish its meaning. A lot of landscapers claim to do “custom work” but when you actually flip through their gallery of images, you might find that everything looks quite similar. In reality, many landscapers just create the same design over and over again on different properties.

The last thing that you want is a property that looks exactly like everyone else’s. If you had a custom home built, you want a custom landscape.

We’re not just talking about a quick sketch on a piece of paper. Unfortunately, some companies do that and call it “design.”

We are talking about high-quality design in which a trained and experienced professional has spent numerous hours (spanning multiple days) to formulate a plan which will serve as a guide for creating your space.

It’s important to recognize that not all landscaping companies offer such a comprehensive design process (even those that might claim to be a luxury landscaping company). But we feel that choosing a landscaper that does take the time to go through all of these steps will ensure that you get the project that you truly desire.

Each step of this design process is focused on honing the design to perfection. The biggest value in high-quality design comes down to a thorough and well-thought-out plan that ensures our clients end up with exactly what they want.

#3. Luxury Landscaping Must Be Maintained Over Time

Another aspect that screams “luxury landscaping,” is a property that is well-manicured. That is a landscape in which the property always looks perfectly neat and tidy as though it was just installed.

The fact is, a landscape design is going to look great when it’s first installed, but if it’s not maintained over time, that high-end look is quickly going to go away.

The truth is, landscape maintenance doesn’t always get the credit it deserves. It may not be exciting in the way that a brand-new design/build project can be. But a beautiful outdoor space doesn’t just remain beautiful—unless it is dutifully tended to and maintained.

There must be ongoing care happening regularly to protect your investment in your landscape and to maintain that exclusive landscaping look.

By letting a landscape professional take over the ongoing maintenance of your property, you can ensure that it will continue to exude that high-end elegance that you desire. With neatly pruned shrubs and a well-manicured lawn, your landscape will have that high-end appeal 24/7.
