Our process

  1. Schedule Appointment: Either by telephone or email, we will schedule an appointment to meet with you at the location (whether it’s a business, home or vacant lot) where you require landscape design services.
  2. Have you complete a Landscaping Needs Questionnaire: The Landscaping Needs Questionnaire allows us to determine your preferences, desires and budget for your landscape design requirements.
  3. Provide on-site consulting. At this step, we will come to your site and consult with you one on one about your landscape, horticultural and Feng Shui needs. We will make design sketches and notes to ensure we capture all of the information we’ll need to prepare our plan.
  4. Provide Drawings / Plans: We will complete conceptual drawings and/or detailed landscape plans which provide diagrams and/or symbols and/or explanations explaining items such as plantings, landscape lighting or other desired features obtained during our one on one consulting.
  5. Provide estimates: A cost estimate and timeline will be provided in writing to you with terms of payment.
  6. Sign contracts: Once you’re satisfied with our plans and we’ve agreed on a cost, we will enter into a contract with you that outlines our guarantees for performing our exceptional level of service within a specified timeline that meets your needs.
  7. Construction and Installation: We will construct and install all exterior landscape features such as retaining walls, brick patios, decks, arbors, fences, water features, irrigation systems, planting beds, turf areas and plant material at this stage of the process.
  8. Site clean up: Our job isn’t complete until we’ve left your site clean and tidy and free of debris.
  9. Customer Review: To ensure your complete satisfaction, we will walk you through the site and look everything over with you. If you have any questions about construction, installation, plant materials or even maintenance, we can answer them for you.
  10. Invoice: Once you are completely satisfied with our work and service, we will accept your final payment.
  11. Follow Up: After the job is complete and the invoice is paid, we don’t forget about you. We will check in with you to see if you have any further questions about plant care, water-wise gardening, Feng-Shui or anything else concerning your new landscape. Our customers are customers for life.

I am so grateful for your garden design.  It was such a pleasure working with you because you designed a beautiful garden that really suits the house. You worked so well with the architect’s ideas and vision for the house.  You also incorporated all my requests and preferences.  The Garden is low maintenance and stunning in every way!  Thank you!

It’s best to have a winding pathway to your front door, not a straight one.

Visual diversions such as flowers, bird baths or gazing balls can be placed along a straight path in order to create more positive energy.
