Design & Consultation
When you’re thinking of a landscape transformation add to your enjoyment of your home and the value of your property, you want to be sure the result is an improvement fitting the investment. The design and planning phase is critical to a successful project and a company with both construction and design expertise will ensure you have a smooth process and a beautiful end product.
The key to exceeding our customers’ expectations begins with listening closely to them. We start each project with a meeting to understand your goals, what you love to do in your leisure time, who you envision using your space, and your style preferences.
We’ll look at your property and its buildings to know what we’re working with. We’ll assess any physical issues that a design plan will have to incorporate, or site problems that may need to be solved.
We may be able to give a ballpark idea of cost during our consultations, but it’s not until we have a detailed picture of what your landscape will include that we can quote the actual cost of the project. We enjoy working with our clients to make the best decisions on components and materials in order to have a space they’re thrilled with and that is within their budget.
With the project components, site measurements and any initial brainstorming sketches from our consultation, we’ll create a set of project drawings. Depending on the complexity of the project, these may include watercolour sketches, computer-generated renderings and technical construction drawings.
Our years of landscape construction experience mean we know exactly what to expect when moving through even the most involved landscape job. We know what to plan for, so that the unexpected events and cost overruns are prevented. We manage an efficiently run, organized project and that includes:
- Placing a top priority on your comments and requests
- Keeping you up to date and aware of the schedule and our progress
- Making sure every member of our team is properly trained to work safely
- Scheduling specialty trades and materials so that timelines are never delayed
- Giving ample notice when your daily operation might be disrupted (like the arrival of heavy equipment, for example)
