Landscape design is the art of using plant materials and planting beds to create beautiful outdoor spaces that enhance and enrich the exterior of a home. Quality landscape design adds greatly to curb appeal, and makes the exterior as much apart of the home as the interior.
Landscape designs vary according to plants, maintenance, season, and much more. We first discuss with the owner their goals for their landscape, including their preferences for plant materials, colors, and textures. Then we start developing the shapes of the planting beds, which determine the affected spaces.
During the Design Development phase, we begin selecting plant materials. If the hardscape is affected (which includes patios, driveways, sidewalks, etc.), we make sure the landscape design is complementary.
During the Construction Documents phase we create the final landscape plan, much like a floor plan, which is a two-dimensional layout showing the exact locations of the plant materials to be used. The plant list, with all quantities and specifications, is incorporated into this plan. Finally, we produce the Care Package, which contains a picture of each plan selected as well as all of the information you need to take care of your new landscape.
