How much does simple bed landscaping in Dallas cost?
We've got some simple shrubs along the front of our one-story brick ranch. Am thinking about having a professional come in and re-design these beds to add more character and color. Obviously the cost would range depending on the landscaper and the plants used...but I have no idea even what type of range re-doing these beds would cost. Also, any resources for planning your own beds (with actual plants and pics, otherwise I find it too overwhelming!) would be appreciated.
How much space are you talking about? And yes, you sort of answered your own question by saying you know the cost will depend on the particular landscaper, and what plant you'll use.
To give you some perspective, My mom had a few plans and estimates done for a house she had. The areas she wanted done were fairly big. She had estimates ranging from about $800 to $8000.
Thinks to think about when you call around, are:
1) Do you want easy, low maintenance? Are you willing to put in a littel time now and then for some really wonderful things? Or would you settle for some less interesting, "durable" plants & shrubs (like the ones you already have) that you can ignore.
2) Do you want flowers? Shrubs? Flowers you can cut and bring inside to enjoy?
3) How about trees? - Deciduous? Evergreen? Shade?
Possibly go to a nursery, and take a stroll, with a little note pad. Write down the names of plants that catch your eye. You can bring these up with the landscaper. You may also get ideas about the costs of different things.
Any good ideas of what to draw?
I like to draw but i never have any ideas of what to draw. I don't like drawing landscapes and i don't like to shade, I like more simple clean looking drawings. Any ideas?
Hmm.. I cant think of anything that doesnt have shading, unless you dont want it to be realistic. Try industrial things.. Skyscrapers, boats, cars, trains
or maybe try an abstract style.. Like outline something or even someone and experiment with using different strokes or cross hatching..
That would actually be a pretty good challenge, trying to create something without shading.. It would be fun and it would look pretty cool.
Try drawing a vase or glass and just outlining the reflection.. Lol i want to try it now.
Graphic Arts-Ideas please?
Im teaching myself graphic art on the computer to prep for a class I'm going to take next year.
Any good ideas of what to try?
think easy, please.
I did I simple mountain landscape already, so anything like that.
You could go to Google images and get a photo of someones face, open it up in illustrator and trace over it to make a portrait that's always good practice.

My girlfriend got me a watch it isn't waterproof but it shows the date and the time, and it also has a light. It is a men's Forester watch, sorry but I don't know where she got it. But a watch would be a good gift.
i am beginning a small landscaping service and would like to know how to take a picture of a yard and be able?
to change and try different types of greenery in the yard to be able to show customers several ideas before starting the job. would prefer something free or inexpensive.also need it to be relatively (simple). thanks so much!!!
They have computer programs that will help you do that. If you want to suceed, then learn how to use available technology to show the customer what they could have. It is professional way to go, and will be a great investment.
