Our Landscape Process
Landscape Design and Installation Process – What to Expect
Every client’s landscape project follows our exclusive “Executive Process” that consists of four phases: Research, Design, Installation and Support. Our landscape process guides our multi-disciplined team of experts as they transform your outdoor dreams into a reality.
The first step of the Executive Process begins with a free consultation with our Program Research Coordinator at your home. During this initial meeting we’ll gather all your ideas and goals as well as any constraints such as expected timeline, priorities and budget.
This information, combined with measurements and site observations recorded by our team, gives us the insight we need to determine your style and author a formal Project Design Study.
- Gather Ideas & Requirements
- Establish a Budget & Constraints
- Create & Deliver a Project Design Study
We will require a design deliverable deposit in order to begin the next phase of the process, design.
It’s important to create your budget and a list of priorities before we are on-site. The budget will determine what we can do within those limits. The list of priorities lets us know which parts of the projects need to be finished first. When making this list, consider the most important are of the outdoor space, the number of people who could occupy the patio if you are aiming to have one built, and the time of year you would use the patio.
Our highly-trained expert landscape designers will use your compiled research to create a custom design that will visually communicate your perfect outdoor environment.
Using our powerful 3D design program, we’ll generate accurate data that allows us to create beautiful photo-realistic renderings for your review and detailed engineering specifications and installation documents for our team.
