African American Landscape Architect Gives 3 Tips to Working With An Expert to Upgrade Your Yard

African American Landscape Architect Gives 3 Tips to Working With An Expert to Upgrade Your Yard

Spring is here and that means it is time to get your garden’s in order. If you are like me and don’t have time to take care of your garden but still love a beautiful landscaping, getting help from an expert should be at the top of your list. With help from Kam Williams, an African American landscape architect and HBCU grad, we have tips to working with an expert to upgrade your yard. Check out Kam’s tips on improving your home and getting it Yard of the Month ready.

African American Landscape Architect Gives 3 Tips to Working With An Expert to Upgrade Your Yard


1. Have a budget in mind that you would like to spend. I tell my clients all the time to always have a price range in mind on what they would like to spend on their landscape project(s). This way you can be realistic with yourself and won’t be surprised at the estimate you receive from the designer or contractor. Also remember that things can be done in phases. If you have to do a little bit at a time because it fits your budget then do what’s best for you.


2. Be open to suggestions. When people see HGTV they forget that it’s TV. Projects take time and you definitely need to be open to design ideas. You may see something that you want, but it may not fit your budget and / or property. 


3. Be patient. Remember designs and creativity takes time. There is a process to make sure that designers and contractors try to give you as close to what you envision. Designers and contractors are taking your vision and bringing it to life. 


Kam Williams is California native who moved to Atlanta to study Civil Engineering at Clark Atlanta University. After graduating from CAU, she started her career working on projects as a Civil Engineer for Hartsfield Jackson Airport. Engineering was great, but she wanted to do something more creative. In 2003, Kam Williams attended Cornell University where she studied Landscape Architecture. After graduating with a Masters of Landscape Architecture in 2006 she moved back to Atlanta to work with an Engineering firm, where she maintained Landscape Architecture projects for McDonalds in the Southern Region. In 2014, Kam Williams became a licensed Realtor in Georgia and has been growing her real estate and landscape design business ever since. As of 2018, Kam Williams is now a licensed Realtor in Florida. 


Kam Williams experience, knowledge and work ethic set her apart from other Realtors. Kam Williams Real Estate offers more than just real estate services.
