Drake’s 7 Dees Canby outdoor lighting design and installation team ensures that this detail is exactly what is needed to highlight a space. Much of the opportunity you have to enjoy your landscape will come after the sun has set – make the most of it by having proper lighting for your outdoor space that highlights your design features and lets people enjoy outdoor living at all hours.

Site Analysis Meeting

A Design Associate from Drake’s 7 Dees will meet with you at your home to discuss your landscape goals. Based upon the extent of your landscape desires, the Design Associate will present a ‘Design Proposal’ that represents the number of ‘design hours’ required to produce a set of detailed Landscape Plans specific to your property.


Conceptual Landscape Plan & Preliminary Budget Review

During a ‘working meeting’ at Drake’s 7 Dees office (or phone conference) the Designer will present a Conceptual Landscape Plan based on your input from the Site Analysis meeting. An illustrated ‘plan view’ of your property will be presented which incorporates your stated landscape goals. You will be able to see in concrete ways what your landscape is going to look like when we’re done. Construction material selections will also be discussed and chosen at this time. A ‘Statement of Values’ will provide preliminary construction costs for the various elements of the Landscape Plan. As a working meeting, this will be the time for your input to help us craft a plan for your home’s landscaping that meets both your aesthetic and budget objectives.


Landscape Plan Presentation & Construction Proposal

A final Design Meeting will be scheduled with the Senior Designer to present the revised Landscape Plan and an itemized Construction Proposal for the installation of your new landscape. Modifications to the ‘scope of services’ presented in the Construction Proposal can be accomplished at this time. Your approval of the Landscape Plan and your Signature on the Construction Proposal will give Drake’s 7 Dees the ‘thumbs up’ to schedule the transformation of your landscape.


The Landscape Build

Our team of experienced landscape construction professionals brings your plan to life. We take great pride in making sure our work is completed quickly, expertly, and with minimal disruption for our clients. We want you to have a good experience before, during, and after your landscape renovation.
