Designing a beautiful garden is a rewarding process. During this process, I’ll consider numerous essential components in order to craft a design well suited to your particular taste, lifestyle and budget. I’ll take into account the style of architecture, use of space, sightlines to and from the house, focal points and flow of foot traffic, as well as physical properties such as existing features to remain, microclimates, types of soil, drainage and the amount of light the space receives.
There are several stages along the way to a final design.
- Consultation: We meet to discuss your property and provide a quote for design. At this meeting I’ll will gather input from you regarding your needs, budget and tastes.
- Base Plan: I’ll take measurements, photos and locate existing features to create a map of your property.
- Concept Plan: I’ll research options in layout, hard materials and plants, in order to create an initial design of your garden and provide a selection of choices.
- Final Plan: Is a working document to get your yard from where it is to where you want it to be. It includes a plan drawing, materials list, and notes as necessary. Whether you plan to go ahead and build it yourself, or hire contractors for all or part of it, the plan defines where you want to end up.
