During your free initial site visit, one of our landscape consultants will walk through your property with you to better understand your vision, budget, timeline, and scope of your project. We will go over our design process, provide a design contract, and discuss any questions you may have about our qualifications or experience. You can expect this site visit to take between 30-90 minutes.
Base map Creation
After you sign a design agreement we will schedule your project on our designers schedule. They will begin by first creating a base map which is a to scale CAD map of your project and the existing structures. The designer may return to your property for accurate measurements and site photos.
Depending on your project, we will provide preliminary options for your layout, selection of plants, and types of materials to bring your design ideas to life. We will review these concepts together, usually over the phone, to hone in on your dream landscape. During this phase we can discuss the prices of particular components of your design.
You may review the final landscape and make any final edits. We work with clients throughout the design process to capture refinements and ideas as they change throughout this process. We include in this process to ensure you get the yard of your dreams.
Final Landscape Plan Copy
We will provide a hard copy and digital version of your landscape plans for your records.
Depending on the scale and complexity of your project your final landscape design package may include: an illustrative plan, design description, layout plans, construction details, 3-d renderings, or sections (side views) to best represent your project.
At this point you can pay for your design or continue onto the following steps.
Once we have a final design we can provide an accurate estimate of the cost to build your project, provide an estimated timeline, and provide our construction contract for your to review. After you sign a agreement and provide a deposit your project is put on our calendar. During peak season (Months of April, May and September, October), it can take up to two-four weeks for construction to begin. If your project changes after you have signed the agreement, the agreement and payments will be adjusted as necessary and new “change orders” will be issued for approval.
One Week Before Construction we will call and confirm the dates on our schedule. If there is a delay due to weather, vendor inventory, or other factors, we’ll be sure to discuss and reset expectations. Our construction crews will never abandon someone else’s project to start yours and will never disappear from your project to go work on another. While our average landscaping projects can be built in just a couple weeks, complex projects can take a few months or more (depending on the size/complexity, weather, etc.)
The day your project is complete, we will schedule a guided tour of your new landscape and teach you about how you should care for it. If you have questions after your installation is complete, just call and we’ll happily answer them. Our projects are backed by our 5 year warranty. Visit our warranty page for more information here.
