- Special considerations such as existing structures
- Other essential aspects of the landscape design process
Our landscape design packages are discussed at this first meeting, and will reflect on the scope of the project.
The designer will develop a concept or plan for the landscape, taking into account the ideas generated in the first step and the information gathered in the second step. Particular attention is given to sourcing materials and products that adhere with the design and character of the home. This concept will be presented to you, where your questions are addressed for feedback and revisions.
Based on the approved concept design, the designer develops a more detailed landscape design plan that includes specific plant selections, drainage, grading and material specifications for hardscaping elements. Using the latest digital software, designs can include 3D modeling, to help visualize the entire proposed layout.
Your bespoke landscape design will be presented to you in detail, by our designers, either in person, or remotely, as preferred.
