If this information is not available, we will take the necessary measurements to ensure an accurate design can be prepared, while accounting for all of the existing conditions. This may include locating other accessory structures, existing trees, other existing plant materials, site drainage patterns, solar orientation, finish floor elevations and walk-out basement elevations when applicable to accommodate drainage and grade changes during the design phase. As designers, we are inherently influenced by the architectural style and details of your home, and they will be an influence on our design and may become an element that is woven within the landscape theme for your home.
With the acquired base information, we begin the design of the landscape concept. The plan is a reflection your desires, designed in harmony with the realities and existing conditions of the property. The plan may be relatively simple, such as a small courtyard area, or it could be a larger plan, such as a comprehensive master plan of a large estate. In conjunction with completing the design of the landscape concept, we also prepare a budget outline of the associated project costs.
