Your new landscape starts with a free consultation with one of our talented designers. At this initial meeting, we will discuss your vision for your new home or re-designed landscape. We will take into consideration: existing site conditions, grading, drainage, style of your home and desired landscape, budget for the project and desired timeline. Typically, at this meeting a rough, estimated project cost is discussed and agreed upon in order for us to design a landscape that meets your needs and desires as well as budget. We will also discuss any design fees, the design process, as well as design and construction timing at this meeting. After the initial meeting, our designers will begin working on a creative plan that meets your needs and wants. This will be a detailed, rendered plan showing you our ideas which will include plant and material example photos. We will often have a 3D rendering for you, showcasing certain elements of your landscape like: pergolas, fire features, outdoor kitchens and other important features. This will help you to visualize exactly how your unique outdoor space will look and feel. We will then meet a second time to review the design as well as a detailed estimate and plant photos. Once the final details of the plans and project have been worked out and agreed upon, a project start date will be given and the project will then move into the construction phase.
The construction phase starts by working directly with your designer to review and select materials for your project. Your designer is your main source of contact throughout the entire process. The designer will manage your project by working very closely with the skilled crew of landscape craftsman to ensure that the shared vision for your home comes to life as intended. Each crew is skilled and setup to install many types of landscapes and landscape features such as:
