Landscape Design & Consultation
One of the most important steps in understanding our clients' needs occurs at the initial site visit. This is a no cost one to two hour consultation where we encourage them to engage us with all of their thoughts, ideas and concerns with regards to their outdoor space and how it relates to their home and lifestyle. We encourage you to convey what your long term goals are so that we can get a true understanding of how your home and landscape will ultimately be used. After careful listening and analysis we then recommend a course of action that will address how to achieve those goals in a way that will create the most value in the long term.
Certain clients know what they are looking for or have already been through the landscape design process. In these instances, we can progress directly to creating a detailed budget which breaks down each element of the project. Our clients can then easily understand where their dollars are being spent and are able to make intelligent, informed decisions about how to proceed.
For those projects that are more complex, we will recommend engaging one of our experienced independent landscape designers or architects to create plans that are appropriate to the nature of the work. The planning process involves a detailed site analysis, creation of a base plan and up to three concepts which are then reviewed by the client and our team. Once a design theme has been chosen, we will advise the client as to whether the project can be built using the concept or if detailed construction and planting plans are needed. Our staff is also equipped to deal with any permitting necessary with local government regulations including complying with Wetlands Regulations.
