Step 1.

Planning your dream landscape begins with a conversation. One of our landscape designers will meet with you at your property to discuss your wish list, preferred landscape style, desired use of the space, and project budget.
A design proposal is then prepared and sent to you. This outlines the design goals and the quotation for the landscape design.

Step 2.

Once we receive your approval, the designer will return to your property to take measurements, grades and site photos allowing us to gather all the information we need to create a concept drawing for your project.

Step 3.

A proposed landscape concept is then sent to you and reviewed together.
This is where any revisions are made before finalizing the design.

Step 4.

The final 2D landscape design is then presented and we will discuss the details and materials needed to complete the project.
Once the design is finalized, a quote for the work will be provided.
