A beautiful landscape starts with a discussion of comprehensive design ideas. We meet with you in order to gain insight into your specific landscape needs and to gain a greater understanding of the future uses for your space. We combine your personal tastes and preferences with horticultural requirements and design principles to create the perfect outdoor retreat in the style you desire.
At the initial meeting, we also explain our design process in more detail. We discuss the objectives of the design along with the design fees involved. Together we determine whether to create a design for only a portion of your landscape or develop a master plan for the entire property. . For smaller projects, a drawn design may not be needed. We still utilize our design expertise in formulating the hardscape or planting plan for your landscape. We proceed to the first design phase upon your acceptance of the Design Agreement. Hide

We analyze and photograph current site conditions as well as identify existing features or plantings that will remain. General design ideas previously discussed are incorporated.
