Online Exterior Design Service that’s Fast, Easy, and AffordablePublished: 12/10/2022 | Updated: 29/03/2023
For far too long, access to great exterior design services was plagued with inconveniences and limited to a very specific demographic. First and foremost, you had to open your doors to a complete stranger, not to mention the indefinite hours of daily availability you needed to have to be able to plan for a decent-looking design.
Crafting the most functional and aesthetically pleasing outdoor space possible, used to be a task that took much time and effort on the part of the client and designer alike. From the hours of the daily commute, a designer had to go through to be able to get from one site to another, to clients themselves having to clear out consecutive hours off their schedule to allow for a satisfactory appointment.
Not to mention, turnaround times ranged between six to eight weeks, leaving homeowners little to no time to actually work on their exterior renovation.
And last but definitely not least, the most dreaded gatekeeper of all: money. For years, the idea of an average person being able to afford a professional designer to help them with their yard renovation was considered absurd by many.
Landscaping design services were beyond the realm of possibility for the great majority of the population. And worst of all? This inappropriate divide was accepted, normalized, and encouraged by most industry professionals, who enjoyed being regarded as a luxury only very few people could afford.
Prices were skyrocketing, but the quality of the end product wasn’t improving; all over the country, homeowners were being charged for unimpressive, overpriced designs that were more in line with the designer’s own styling opinions, rather than the customer’s aesthetic preferences and particular needs.
As industry insiders, the creators of ShrubHub knew it had to be possible to craft creative, professional-grade designs, deliver them to clients in a fraction of the average turnaround time traditional landscape designers were offering, and provide them at an affordable price range that could finally open the door to welcome everyone who needed a garden design moving forward.
And where there’s a will, there’s a way.
An all-online service came as the perfect solution to all the traditional landscape design industry’s issues, and as a means to improve upon the aspects where design companies were falling short.
A Dreamland in Your Backyard, Only a Few Clicks Away
For those blessed with a backyard, this space can be a holy grail. It can be the perfect place for family gatherings, for quality time with a significant other, and even for some much-needed alone time of rest and relaxation.
The delight we can feel with something as simple as stepping out of our home for fresh air after a long day can be described as that of a micro-vacation, where you can clear your mind from everyday stresses, if only for a few hours or minutes a day.
Most of the activities you do inside can happen outside in your backyard; all you need is an outdoor space to serve as a clean slate and a carefully-crafted design plan. Even in the smallest gardens, a clever designer can make the most of the available space, improving upon its looks and functionality without dismissing the homeowners' creativity.

What can you achieve with an online exterior design service?
A beautiful, functional landscape
A clever and style-conscious landscape design will help your outdoor space reach its full potential. If you’re not sure where to start, one of our skilled professionals will help you figure out the style that best compliments your home’s existing architectural aesthetic; after all, your yard should work as an extension of your home. One that naturally blends with the rest of your property, adding more livable space.
More often than not, homeowners don’t want to have to spend hours on end maintaining their yards, which is why our designers focus on crafting sustainable landscapes with plants and shrubs that are native to our clients’ areas of residence. This is the best way to ensure the landscape will practically maintain itself, saving homeowners time, money, and resources.
For those who want to hop on the grow-it-yourself trend of growing veggies and herbs in their garden, but find it a challenge to make them look pretty or make sense with the rest of their landscape, we have experts in edible landscaping (also known as foodscaping).
This is a wonderful sustainable practice to encourage in any home, and you don’t need to tear your lawn apart or have ten acres of land to do it. Vegetable gardens can look appealing and be the focal point of any garden, all you need is the right planning!
Time and time again it has been proven that first impressions do matter, especially when it comes to buying a new house. How good a property looks when viewed from the street can be a deciding factor for any potential buyers, this is called “curb appeal”.
Curb appeal goes beyond your guests’ and neighbors’ opinions about your choice of paint color for the front porch: potential buyers might not feel inclined to check out an entire property if the outside looks messy or worse, uninviting. Even if the interior is gorgeous, a property with little to no curb appeal is less likely to attract potential buyers.
As industry professionals, we know curb appeal when we see it, but it might be hard for a homeowner to pinpoint exactly what elements or areas desperately call for a makeover.
Most times, only a few quick and inexpensive improvements are needed to enhance a property’s curb appeal; whether your front yard needs a complete revamp or just a few tweaks here and there, our design experts will help you make your property the most welcoming of the neighborhood!
More outdoor living space
No matter the size of your property, there is always something that can be done to add more outdoor living space to your home.
Water features can work wonders on any outdoor space, and they can be as simple to incorporate as building your DIY fountain or as complex as a professionally crafted artificial waterfall.
Either way, there’s nothing more relaxing you could add to your design, and almost anything can be done in terms of aesthetics, shape, size, and location. Incorporating a water feature in your design can be done easily and tastefully.
Decks can also be a great new addition to any backyard. They can be made of a wide variety of materials and can be as expensive or as simple as you’d like, resulting in a luxurious space to host outdoor dinners or a homely spot where you can simply sit back and relax with a warm cup of tea. It’s all up to the homeowner’s lifestyle and preferences!
Another way to swiftly transform any yard is the perfect outdoor lighting, which is not only essential for providing safety and security but also for decorating and achieving the desired nighttime mood. Lighting makes a yard functional after the sun goes down, and highlights the beauty of its unique features.
Outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and sheds are also top on the list of ways to enhance a yard’s look and create an outdoor space that’s perfect for relaxation and social gatherings alike. These delightful, functional features can also be designed to match any style, space, needs, and budget.
