Before your outdoor space can take shape, one of our landscape architects will meet with you to discuss your vision, budget and design requirements. This is when we ask the important questions and listen attentively to your answers – using every last detail to move forward with a precise and efficient design/build plan.
Based on the scope of the project, we prepare a written document outlining the specifics to be accomplished throughout the design process, as well as the design fees and small deposit required. Once signed, our landscape architect will revisit the site to get necessary details such as dimensions of existing structures, water meter locations, gas meter, etc.
With your vision, lifestyle and design needs driving our ideation, we will develop several conceptual preliminary designs – drawings will range from hand sketches to 3D computer models. Once we have reviewed the designs and selected which layout best suits your requirements, the landscape architect will begin to focus on the detailed elements of the design. We will present multiple options and suggestions for material selection, as well as lighting and drainage layout if included in the original proposal.
The landscape architect will finalize dimensions and material selection, as well as provide construction notes and a final planting layout within one completed design. For outdoor kitchen designs, construction plans are needed to detail the outdoor kitchen slab, electrical, plumbing and framing. These drawings are needed to obtain a building permit and determine final cost for the project.
As your partner, our team works with you every step of the way to transform your design vision into a vibrant and long-lasting reality – from conception to execution. Take an inspiring look at our past projects to discover the possibilities that await.
