Our process begins with a free on site consultation with one of our distinguished Project Directors, who are landscape design or architecturally degreed, and have spent years coordinating, designing and overseeing residential and commercial design-build projects. Our Project Directors become your point person from conception to reality and walk you through every step of the science, artistry and craftsmanship that goes along with it.

During this initial consultation, we walk your property with you and discuss your needs, desires and goals. We share photos of our work to help give you some ideas and show you our limitless capabilities. Next, we take you through our design questionnaire to ask questions about you and your project from your favorite colors, season and plants, to how you entertain and to whom. We’ll discuss the different elements that you would like to see in your design.

We view our interactions with our clients as an exchange of ideas that lead to a partnership, but when it comes to this critical sit down with you, it’s all about listening. We want to know you and your family, and understand how you use the yard now, and peer into the future with you as to how you will use it years later. We want to know the things you like and don’t like, so we are creating a design and plan that fits your needs and your lifestyle.

Finally, we spend time discussing your budget for the project: we don’t take this topic lightly like some firms which return with a plan that exceeds the means, desires and pocketbook. Over-budget isn’t productive for anyone and delays you from achieving your goals, so we discuss it early on. In doing so, we show you how we can control the costs of a project and discuss important options like phasing a project over time. At the conclusion of this meeting, we provide a proposal for the design and hope to welcome you as our newest client!
