1.) Initial Landscape Consultation

Our process begins with an initial landscape consultation. We like to meet onsite to get to know each client personally to understand their needs and wants for their project. We then walk the property to identify and discuss potential opportunities and highlight potential issues. At the end of this initial meeting, we discuss a fee for putting together a design for your landscape.

2.) Preliminary Concept Plan

After our fee is received, our design team gets to work drawing and drafting a preliminary concept plan that addresses your specific wants and asks. We then meet once more to go over the concept plan along with some initial thoughts on material selections and a preliminary budget. We use this meeting as an open forum to solicit feedback from you on what is and isn’t working and we take those thoughts into consideration for the final phase.

3.) Final Concept Plan

We take your feedback on the preliminary concept plan and incorporate all of it into one final landscape plan, complete with material and planting selections as well as a cost estimate for construction of the plan as presented. If everything looks good, we sign an installation contract and get right to building your landscape.

4.) Implementation

During Construction, your designer will periodically check in on your project to ensure everything is built exactly to the vision laid out in the plans. Once construction is completed, we like to meet one last time to go over how to care for your new landscape and answer any final questions you may have.
