Drones are an excellent tool to capture the landscape at an entirely different vantage point, with stunning results. While we create our landscape plans on paper they are a simplistic view from above, and it’s a visual perspective we don’t normally see (unless we are flying in a plane!). But with drones we now have the opportunity to revisit the site and see the complete landscape in all its glory. This is very exciting for our Van Zelst team. While following the Federal Aviation Administration rules and getting permission from our clients, we are getting fantastic footage this year.
Drones are becoming increasing more popular and more user friendly so if you are looking for a new hobby – this might be it! Just remember to fly a drone, even as a hobby, it needs to only be registered. Do your research as there are FAA rules that need to be followed when flying your drone.
