Land Design and Planning
Together with you, we will develop a dynamic master plan for your landscape.
What is a Landscape Design or Landscape Plan?
A landscape design is like a floor plan for an outdoor area. Like a floor plan, a landscape design creates a visual representation of a site using scaled dimensions. Landscape plans include natural elements like flowers, trees, and grass as well as man-made elements such as lawn furniture, fountains, and sheds. Landscape designs may also include overlays for irrigation and lighting.
Our Design Philosophy
Our philosophy is to meet the needs of the client who frequent and enjoy the outdoor spaces. We strive to respect and unveil the qualities of the natural landscape. With that in mind, we provide unique opportunities to engage with and appreciate the outdoor world. Our process encompasses science, aesthetic design, function and ultimately a flawless transition to implementation in the field.
Your vision is our ultimate starting point. We meet with you to discuss your problems, needs and aesthetic preferences with your budget and timeframe in mind. We will prompt you to fill out a questionnaire. Some questions will include: What are the planned uses for your outdoor space? Special design requests? Rough budget? and timeline? Your response will assist us in accommodating your vision.
We’ll leave no stone unturned. Our designer will come out to thoroughly analyze the project area, taking measurements and photographs. We evaluate the influence of climate, topography, soil profile, existing plants, views, adjacent structures and use patterns. This information impacts the choice and implementation of plants and conceptual hardscape structures.
The design encapsulates everything from vision, site analysis, site factors, build limitations, material availability, function, and budget factors. Our designers will create a custom design tailored to your specific situation. Generally, our designs include a conceptual and master plan format. To further convey our vision we create rendered perspectives and section elevations. We adjust design elements in accordance with local municipalities along with long term maintenance procedures.
We gather information from you so that we graphically present the design in a manner that is fully conveyed to you. Our designs combine hand-drawn and computer-generated images to display our vision along with a comprehensive itemized proposal that correlates to the design itself. We ultimately meet with you to present the project in full detail. Any revisions to design elements and proposals will be gathered preceding this meeting.
Once all permits, finances, and a site walkthrough are completed, we start work! Once we start the job, continuous work will evolve until full completion is achieved. Our high-quality landscape install crews bring your vision to life. We provide full management of the site to mitigate any routine interruption and a flawless installation process.
Our landscape designer works closely with you, our foremen, and our operations to ensure we address and meet all aspects of the contract and design. Once your project is unveiled to you and you are beyond satisfied, we will provide you with the tools and information so you can maintain and enjoy your landscape investment for years to come. We fully back all phases of the landscape install if any problems arise.
