PHASE 1 – INITIAL CONSULTATION (NO COST)One of our project managers or landscape designers meets with you (on-site) to discuss your project. Expect this meeting to take between 30-90 minutes. The initial consult will cover:
Your vision for the project
Use space analysis
The landscaping design and build process
Five Year Warranty
PHASE 2 – DESIGN DOCUMENT CREATED AND DELIVERED (DESIGNS START AT $1,495)Next, we’ll take your vision and translate it to paper. We’ll create a landscape design document that takes your vision, budget, and yard challenges and documents it to make sure that 1) we’ve thought through all the considerations AND 2) expectations are aligned. This process takes about 15 hours of work, thinking through plants and materials, drainage, design, use, and other factors. Additional work involves:
Measuring your property
Assessing the challenges of the landscape (testing the soil, analyzing existing plants/trees, analyzing grade, slope, and drainage, etc)
Designing the project on paper/electronically
Estimating cost of materials and plants
Getting bids from subcontractors
Estimating the time necessary to complete the project
Typically, refinements and ideas change throughout this process. We include as many refinements and changes as necessary to ensure you get the yard of your dreams.
PHASE 3 – AGREEMENT AND SCHEDULING
PHASE 3 – AGREEMENT AND SCHEDULING Once we’re aligned on the final project, agreements are signed, you deposit the down payment, and your project is calendered. During peak season (Months of April, May and September, October), it can take up to four weeks for construction to begin. If your project changes after you have signed the agreement, the agreement and payments will be adjusted as necessary and new “change orders” will be issued for approval.
PHASE 4 – CONSTRUCTION
PHASE 5 – FINAL WALK THROUGHThe day your project is complete, we will schedule a guided tour of your new landscape and teach you about how you should care for it. If you have questions after your installation is complete, just call and we’ll happily answer them.
