Design Process

Residential Garden Design

Elegant, customized design is a collaboration of you, the client with us. The process begins with careful listening and observation on our part.  The process for a full design/build works like this:

  • Initial meeting - we begin by walking your property with you to identify problems to be solved and desires to fulfill. We provide you with a questionnaire to fill out beforehand to make the most of our meeting time and invite you to gather photos of garden features that you like that express your tastes.
  •  I will measure the yard to create a scaled base map and will explore a variety of design solutions. 
  • Second meeting - we will present design concept options and photo images for you to compare and make choices for a final design.   
  • Third meeting, you will be presented with a refined landscape plan that can use to hire a contractor. We can refer you to contractors.
  • Installation oversight – We are involved with the project through the installation to ensure that the integrity of the design is maintained.  We will oversee the installation at key points and direct field adjustments as needed.
