OUR PROCESS

LANDSCAPE DESIGN

  • 1) CONSULTATION

    First we consult with you on the design, style and goals of your project. We brainstorm ideas for design, and purpose. Collaboration is very important during this step and we pride ourselves on our ability to communicate. Finally we develop an inspirational board.

  • 2) VISION

    After collaborating with our clients we begin to explore texture, form, and overall functionality of your space. Then we develop 2-3 base concepts. From there we discuss materials, plant sizes, timeline and costs.

  • 3) DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

    Once a design is chosen we start the process of developing the final plan. Here we create detailed construction drawings and finalize the design details.

LANDSCAPE INSTALLATION & CONSTRUCTION

  • 4) SITE PREP

    Once the final plan is ready, we begin prepping the site for construction. We review your site again and take into consideration many factors such as utilities, drainage, and grading. This step is extremely important to ensure a smooth process.

  • 5) CONSTRUCTION

    This is when we will begin to lay out the foundation of your project. Begin to rough in elements of grading and start planting. This stage is the hardest to visualize as many components are beginning to come together.

  • 6) FINAL DETAILS

    By now things are starting to come together, however there are many important activities in process. Keep in mind plants may take several seasons to reach maturity. This is also the point when cleanup begins, mulching, seeding, and other final touches.
