Before for the Consultation Meeting
Whether you call our office or fill out the simple form on our contact page, the first step for our design and estimation team is to gather information. This is information is essential because it can quickly tell us if your project is a good match for the services we offer.
Providing More Information
If you haven’t already, our team will direct you to fill out the Landscape Design-Build Information portion of our contact form. This can be easily accessed by selecting ‘Yes’ to the final question on the simple form, “For Landscape Design-Build Inquiries-Would you like to provide more information to help us understand your project vision?”
An additional set of questions will then open up for you to fill out. These questions discuss your budget and deadline, information about your existing landscape, and a brief overview of the landscape you hope to have installed. Once this questionnaire is completed and the consultation fee is paid, your consultation is scheduled and meeting preparation begins.
If you would like some design inspiration before meeting with our team of experts, feel free to visit our learning center and portfolio. Both include examples of our work and product selection inspirations. Our blog also offers tons of helpful tools whether you are trying to select the best design-build landscape firm or trying to decide how large your patio should be.
Preliminary Consultation Meeting Preparation
With the basic information gathered and the meeting scheduled, our design team now gets to work. A folder is created for your project including the questionnaire answers, photos of the property you included, notes from a previous phone or e-mail conversations, a site assessment form, and a Google Earth overview map.
Our design and estimation team then meets weekly in person to discuss new potential projects in detail and gather ideas and solutions for your property. They begin to research any potential permits that may be needed to complete landscape work at your property to discuss with you.
According your responses on your questionnaire, our team begins brainstorming product and plant selections and inspiration to present as an option if you are unsure of what you may want your project to look like.
