The Designer Landscape Process
In the first step of the process, one of our designers will meet you at the project site. They’ll listen carefully to you to truly understand your expectations and desires. Then they’ll survey the site to see what will work with the natural setting, and how they can best accomplish your goals within your specific space. They’ll also take note of the style and architecture of the house. A home extends beyond four walls, and it’s very important that a landscape design marries well with the house, and creates the same sense of comfort and familiarity.
Beyond staying true to the home, our designers will create a designer landscape that’s true to the natural environment. Forcing a space to be something it’s not will destroy the essence of what makes it special. So they will look at the landscape from multiple angles, such as soil, light conditions, grading, and terrain. They’ll then create a design that makes sense, feels right, and blends in seamlessly with the space as a whole.
Once our designers have finished assessing your property, your needs, and your budget concerns, they will conceptualize a plan for your space. Then they will put pencil to paper and hand-draw a map of where plants, boulders, retaining walls, structures and seating areas will go.
