Landscape Design exclusively for residences

Tropical landscape design

Whatever style of landscape you seek, your design will be crafted to achieve a balance of form and function, and will always be made with the sustainability of the landscape and working with the local environment in mind. With water conservation a top priority nowadays, we are more conscious than ever about designing with xeriscape principals at all times. Xeriscape means creating water-wise landscapes, by using plants which are appropriate for the local environment. By designing with nature, instead of fighting it: we can create lasting gardens which demand less water, fertilizer, and pesticide use. This saves time, money, and helps the environment, all while creating a beautiful place to unwind, relax and enjoy.

The Landscape Design Process

The landscape design process begins with an initial meeting where we discuss the site and what you are looking to achieve with it. We will discuss how the various areas will be used, address any existing problems that need to be corrected, and work out a rough idea of the overall scope and budget of the project. It is best to have some general ideas and a budget in mind before this initial meeting. The more ideas and examples you can provide at this meeting the better. Take photos of landscapes, plants, structures, or decorative items you like. Bring pictures from magazines or websites, and make notes of things which you do NOT like as well. It is also helpful to have a copy of your property survey on hand for this meeting as it will save time on measuring and make estimating the project easier.

Based on the details discussed in the initial meeting you will be provided with a preliminary design proposal and cost estimate which we will discuss in a second meeting, either in person or via phone or internet conference. In this meeting we will refine the design ideas, specify plant species and materials, and discuss any needed adjustments and changes. Subsequent meetings and design revisions may take place until we have created a final design which meets all of your desires and expectations. This final design and proposal may be delivered to you in paper copy and/or digital  .pdf format if you desire.
