Planning & Design
The perfect design begins with an in-depth consultation at your home. We do this so we can work with you to create the perfect plan for your outdoor space.
“In order to build a house, you need blueprints, so why would your landscape be any different?”
– Ana Lockett
Our Designs are customized to each and every client. When helping you create a Landscape Design Plan, there are three main variables that we look at:
Aesthetics, Style & Functionality
Does the design add beauty or value to the home? Does it compliment the style of the property? Does it match the taste of our client? Is it usable for our client and future buyers (if that applies)?
Does the design work with the client’s short-term and long-term budgets? Are the suggested materials the best value? Are there ways to save in one area in order to spend more in another?
Can the implementation of the design be phased? How do we avoid redundant work? What measures can we take to prepare for future phases?
Take a look at our completed designs and see the difference a good plan can make.
