It begins with inspiration. The initial glimpse of an idea – your property as a beautiful sanctuary where memories are created season after season. Our team of talented Landscape Architects leads you through this process to discover the possibilities of your land. We craft your desires into a plan, where splendor and function blend to create a place that reflects your style and allows you to live in your outdoors.
Preparation for the Initial Consultation
After scheduling an initial consultation with your Architect we will request that you fill out the Design Questionnaire and provide us with a copy of your plat. This form helps provide a framework of your goals, preferences, and investment range for the project. Collect visual ideas from magazines and websites like Houzz and Pinterest to provide us with more insight into your taste and style.
The goal of this initial meeting is to get to know you and your family to ensure we develop a shared vision for your project. We also want to see and discuss, potential opportunities or possible challenges your site may present. Our team will use this opportunity to provide you with information regarding the design / build process and the time / costs involved in creating a well-thought-out and thoroughly detailed plan.
With an understanding and a vision of your goals for the project, we will present you with conceptual designs and 3D renderings showing the different possibilities, along with a summary of the expected budget ranges. Conversations to help determine which landscape features are a must and a discussion on a more definitive budget are normally completed at this time to allow the design process to move forward.
Master and Final Plans
Taking the best ideas that you fell in love with from the conceptual plans, as well as any new thoughts that were triggered by imagining your project from a new angle, then combining them with your desired budget will allow us to create your Master Plan. This detailed plan, along with a few revisions if needed, will allow us to produce a detailed work description, and finalized material selection list. We will discuss your construction and installation timelines, and help move you toward creating the landscape of your dreams.
