OUR PROCESS

CREATIVE DESIGN, CUSTOM INSTALLATION, PERSONAL SERVICE

 

INITIAL MEETING AND CONSULTATION

Our professional landscape design staff will meet with you at your project location to discuss your project. We take the time to listen to your ideas, wants, needs and budget, then we make suggestions on how to best move forward and complete your project. We will let you know what material and services are available to meet your needs. This is also the time we can answer any questions you may have about our landscaping company and our process.

 

DESIGN, BUDGET AND ESTIMATE

During this phase of the process we will clearly define the overall scope and direction of the project. For some projects we will need to complete a design, and for that we do charge a small fee. Our landscape designer will discuss fees with you during the initial consultation and will go through a detailed estimate, including the materials, services and general construction information about your project. For other projects, we may be able to complete your estimate without a design and fee.

 

CONTRACT, PLANNING AND SCHEDULING

Once we have agreed on a design and estimate, we will discuss the contract and payment terms for your project. Upon receiving the signed contract and deposit we will schedule your work, which can vary from two to eight weeks out depending on the time of the season and the size of your project. We will also take care of planning the installation, including product samples and selections.

 

CONSTRUCTION AND INSTALLATION

Our installation crew will begin the construction phase of your project. Depending on the size and scope of your project, landscape installation services may take one to two days or several weeks to complete. While working on your project, our designer and crew leader will stay in contact with you, keeping you informed of how the project is going and ensuring it is going as planned.

 

Our team will always maintain a clean and safe worksite to ensure minimal impact to you and your neighbors throughout the installation.

 

FINAL WALKTHROUGH

Once your project is complete we will walk you through the project and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We will also discuss any maintenance that may be required to keep your new landscape looking good for years to come.This is also the time we will discuss your final invoice and collect payment.
