BEFORE & AFTER: Design Defined

We designed and installed this renovation project several years ago. Beautiful homes benefit from a new look. Are you ready for us to re-invent your garden?

Design Defined

When we begin to work with a new customer, we recommend starting with a landscape design, which may vary in scope from a master site plan to an intimate, special garden. A landscape design is a road map to define and communicate concepts, ideas, goals, solutions, and details between the designer and the customer.

For example, what is the scope of the project; what is your budget range; how do you envision using your landscape; do you want a lawn for kids or need something more dog proof; do you entertain outdoors or like to spend time outside in a quiet, shady corner surrounded by the sound of birds and water; does your neighborhood have specific covenants for landscapes? Then there are the inevitable drainage and erosion problems to solve. Do you need irrigation, want outdoor lighting, or dream of some water features? How can your yard be more private without building a fence? What style do you prefer, for example formal, naturalistic, or in-between? What colors, favorite garden plants, or type of plants would you prefer? Are you a gardener and plan to maintain the garden yourself or plan to hire someone with landscaping ideas to help? These questions all need answers before a professional landscaping designer ever sits down at a drawing table.

Our designers will evaluate all of these items as specific to your site. We will understand your site first and then based on this understanding we will provide appropriate solutions, appropriate plant selection, appropriate hardscapes, and appropriate complexity for you. Most importantly, we will listen to you and provide a landscape design that meet your priorities, needs, desires, and dreams.
