Designing For The Long Term

Posted on October 4, 2021

Landscape design entails bringing together all the aspects of your home and lifestyle while working within the restraints of the location. The success of any landscaping project relies on the extent of planning done in the beginning. All large-scale construction projects experience changes throughout the building process, having a professional detailed design can help mitigate the unpredictable nature that comes with landscaping and ensure a timely installation.  Sometimes for large projects that include multiple spaces or features, a phased approach is best suited. Phased projects break the scope of work, timeline, and cost structures into “bite-sized” segments. This can help minimize the feeling of risk when going all in on a large multi-faceted landscape design project and make the overall goal seem more manageable. In addition, phased projects can help you better understand how certain components of the design fit together. 

To paint a picture, your dream yard may have a pool with a patio surround, fire feature off to one side, a play area off to the other, and luscious plant life all around, but you want to do this spread out into 3 phases. To achieve this, you would need a master design plan that incorporates all these elements you desire so that it’s clear how to break the project apart when it comes to installation. We take in all of the nuances when we design the plan, for example how the plant material will grow in overtime and how your landscape beds will look throughout each season.

Each project starts with a phone call to discuss your needs. Based on the scope determined in that conversation, you are assigned to one of our designers who will then come out to conduct an onsite meeting and be able to discuss an overall budget for your project and design. From there things move into the design phase, where your vision comes to life!
