Creativity is intelligence having fun. ~Albert Einstein


Once you’ve returned your design contract, we’re ready to begin. A typical sequence would be:

We collaborate with a Houzz Ideabook or Pinterest Board to share images we like. These might include plants, hardscape, furniture, lighting, containers, and anything else inspiring.

I prepare a first design draft that shows a layout(s) and general elements. This level of plan might include higher level information like patio placement, major plant components, a walkway shape, etc. We meet to review the first concepts and decide which direction to go.

I revise the plan, incorporating our design meeting notes, and add detailed information like specific plants and hardscape materials. This level of detail allows us to estimate approximate budgets.

We meet again to create a near-final plan. This can be used for formal bids from your potential landscape installer. At this point, a little fine-tuning and we’ll be ready to build.
