LANDSCAPE DESIGN PROCESS

1. INITIAL CONSULTATION WITH OUR DESIGN STAFF

  • Meet on site and get to know each other
  • Discuss the scope of the project and discuss some ideas
  • Create a “wish list” of your landscape needs and wants
  • Create a rough budget

2. DESIGN PROPOSAL

  • We will leave you with either a “Design Proposal Agreement” to review, or for smaller projects, an on-site estimate 

3. SITE ANALYSIS

  • Take site measurements and photos
  • Study the existing wind, sun, soil and water conditions
  • Determine existing site topography 

4. CONCEPTUAL DRAWINGS & REVISIONS

  • Prepare 3D visualizations to convey creative design options and illustrate shadow patterns
  • Revise until we get to the “final design concept”

5. FINAL DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION QUOTE

  • Create architectural plans for use during construction
    These drawings are needed for proper construction, accurate estimating and City permits.
  • Finalize budget: After an accurate design is created, we can present the detailed quote

6. INSTALLATION PREPARATION

  • Plan a construction schedule 
  • Select materials
  • Order utility locates
  • Coordinate subcontractors as required

7. INSTALLATION

  • Both the Construction Foreman and the Landscape Architect will be available daily to ensure a smooth installation process

8. PROJECT CLOSE OUT MEETING

  • Meet with your Project Manager to discuss any outstanding items
  • Once the project is determined to be 100% complete, we will start the final invoicing process
  • At this time, we will ask your permission to take photos for promotional use and award submissions.
