Major Design or Re-Design Project

Preliminary Meeting:

This is my opportunity to meet you and get to know the space we are working with and your wish list. We will discuss the scope of work, ideas for improvement, and decide how to move forward. It is extremely important for all decision-makers to be a part of this initial meeting. If hired for a design, initial site measurements, and photos will be done at this time. Designs are priced on a lump-sum basis and can vary depending on the scope of work. Because I bill this way, you the homeowner, don’t have to worry about what price I bring you with your completed design, and I get to design freely without the constraints of an hourly rate worrying me, therefore; all of my creative juices are put into the design.

Conceptual Meeting:

If appropriate and depending on the scope of work, it may be necessary to meet and show you my conceptual plan for the landscape space through the design process. We will discuss the proposed landscape design for approval, clarifying any outstanding questions or thoughts, and if agreed, I proceed on to the softscaping (plant choices) and perfecting the design further.

Final Meeting:

services During this final meeting, I will present the final plan with planting plans. plant description list, design notes, pictures, lists of contractors for bidding, and anything else pertinent to the implementation of the design. At this point you will have a complete design to plan your installation or hand-off to contractors for bidding apples-to-apples.
