Landscape Design Process
I. Initial Design Consult
Our designer meets with you at your residence to first evaluate your property and existing landscape, gaining a full understanding of the key challenges and constraints, as well as your priorities and wish lists. The designer will collaborate with you to establishing innovative design concepts which fit your financial needs.
Whether you have a small garden to fill or an entire property to landscape, our goal is to match up your requirements and fit that with our most effective process for you.
For smaller garden designs or partial plantings, your designer can provide you with planting recommendations which best fit your needs and or even provide you with a rough concept sketch.
Pictures and measurements are taken and used to assist next step in developing a ballpark rough estimate that will include specific plant characteristics and groupings, and costing for materials and labour.
For larger gardens , yards or full properties a more formalized approach is suggested where a Master Plan will be developed to scale which will help you better visualize the details of the new design. By the end of the consult, you will be provided with a verbal quotation on the design fee which best fits the scope of your design needs (followed up by a written proposal).
This Initial Design Consult cost ranges from $90 for first hour , then $40 for each additional half hour (plus tax). This consultation fee becomes a credit on your implementation project.

II. SITE INVENTORY
If you given us the go-ahead, your designer will either schedule another visit to take more detail measurements and site assessments . The designer conducts a detailed Site Analysis on the existing site and surrounding site features which may have an impact on the design of your garden. An inventory of the property is documented, including; measurements, site features, important trees and shrubs, environmental features (eg. Grades, sun exposure, moisture, wind, etc.), then photos are taken as a reference. Our goal is to create the perfect garden which works in harmony with the surrounding natural environment and architecture features
III. Concept and Detailed Design:
Your designer produces an artistic graphical rendering of a Concept Plan and Detail Design (including specific plant and hardscape material lists and costs). A Detail Estimate includes these details along with corresponding labour costs.
A meeting is scheduled where the designer reviews these plans with you, facilitating a full understanding and perhaps even making final adjustments to the plan with you.
Once you approve the final plan, an additional 25% deposit is required to move forward to the construction phase.
