We believe that the most important aspect of implementing a landscape project is the site preparation. It is during this phase in which the foundation of the landscape is set; if it is done poorly the landscape will struggle, but if done well it will flourish!
Our experienced crews will begin by implementing any applicable Storm Water Management Plans or Conditions required from the local Conservation Commission. We then lay out all of the proposed landscape elements to be built according to the design and make sure that they fit the intent of the client or designer. Components of any existing landscaping not meant to be saved are removed and processed by type, then taken to the proper facility for recycling. The topsoil is then removed from the work area and if there is adequate room on site we will stockpile it for screening and reuse. Otherwise the material will be hauled off site and stockpiled for later processing and recycling. Detailed grading of the site then commences and the proper cuts and fills are made to accommodate the new layout. Emphasis is put on preparing the base for driveway, walkway, patio and other structural components such as stone walls, pool, tennis court or accessory building. Trenching is done to accommodate proposed utility lines and finally the site is graded to assure the proper drainage of water away from any structures and allow for adequate soil depth in planting beds.
Our attention is then re focused on storm water management as the result of the changes which have taken place. We offer a sustainable approach to dealing with rainwater and run off generated from the site and can offer simple solutions to return this water into the ground as well as a more comprehensive approach which offers compensatory underground storage so that the water may be reused for an irrigation system or water feature.
At Jeffreys Creek, we have the equipment, knowledge, manpower, and artistic eye to carefully complete this important aspect of your project. Because we have control over what we're creating and are ultimately responsible for it, we can assure a higher quality outcome. It also means the project will be completed more quickly and efficiently because we schedule our own crews, eliminating delays and inconsistencies found when using multiple firms.
