Process

Landscaping for how you live your life outdoors.
Design-Build landscaping requires a unique blend of talents on our part, a balance of left-brain and right-brain skills, allowing us to deliver a host of benefits to our clients. It allows us to give you tremendous value for your budget – and peace of mind.

Contact us to learn more about Landscape Design/Build.

Complimentary Consultation.
Let the brainstorming begin. Soon after our phone interview, we’ll send a Senior Designer to meet with you at your home. During this free consultation, you’ll receive a landscape design proposal to outline the project’s goals, timeline, and estimate of the design cost. A planning questionnaire will help you better identify specific goals and desires.

Meet our designers.

Site Analysis.
We examine the nuts and bolts. At this time, we will review and discuss the planning questionnaire, discuss possible materials and consider other pertinent input from you, the homeowner. We’ll take detailed measurements of the property and reference photographs to be used during the development of the landscape plan.

Conceptual Design Presentation.
Voila! Oh, the possibilities. . . Approximately two weeks later, we will present conceptual plans specifically designed for you. This is when the fun truly begins, especially for you. With your comments and feedback, we begin the process of refining, and turning the ideas into detailed landscape plans. You’ll see several important iterations on the way. The Existing Conditions Plan (what’s there now) and the Conceptual Design Presentation (what soon will be) will be integrated and will become the Conceptual Design Plan. This is the proposed concept for the design.

Final Landscape Plan.
Here we go! The Final Landscape Plan is determined based on input from you, the homeowner, after reviewing the Conceptual Design Plan, the Existing Conditions Plan, and the Statement of Values (comprehensive budget).

Before we begin, you will be presented with your final Landscape Plan and Construction Proposal about a week after the Conceptual Plan is approved. At this meeting, we’ll carefully review the following:

  • Conceptual Design
  • Hardscape plan
  • Planting plan
  • Demolition plan (and details therein)
  • Construction proposal
    (detailed estimate of time and cost)

After these elements are reviewed and approved, construction is scheduled. We will then be on our way to creating the landscape of your dreams – and the backdrop by which you’ll remember the moments of your lives. Our goal is to earn the privilege of making your vision a reality, and exceeding your greatest expectations, while earning your confident referral to friends and neighbors.
