From plantings, to construction of patios, rock gardens and retaining walls -ultimately your imagination is the limit.¬†We will work with you from idea conception through to follow up client care.
A standard Design and Installation Process:
1) A Free Consultation: our experts will visit your property to assess your space and discuss your vision.
2) Site Analysis: an in depth process to document specifications and further evaluate existing and long term factors.
3) Concept Design: sketches, visits to nurseries and sample items. Often a collaborative process stage to ensure ¬†clients vision.
4) Design Refinement: a clear vision of garden design and installation has been achieved. Design layout, selection of plant species and building materials has been determined.
5) Hardscaping: a rudimentary and invasive process whereby markings are made and land is prepared for installation.
6) Installation: this stage brings your vision to life. Execution of planting, building and stone work layout occurs. Proper fertilization and seasonal treatments are applied followed by a pristine restoration by cleaned work areas. Welcome to your new garden oasis!
