“The details are not the details. They are the design.”

-Charles Eames

The Design Process

Our designs are organic and hand drawn. Well suited to smaller projects, like converting your front lawn into a drought tolerant, low maintenance garden for example. If you have a larger project requiring site engineering, grading or construction ready plans, we recommend you contact a landscape architect.
1. Get started
We always offer a free initial consultation! We schedule a visit or a phone call where we can discuss your project parameters, and our design process and fees.
2. Design Meeting
Next, we schedule a more in-depth, onsite consultation, where we ask you questions, take measurements and observations, identify any challenges and start to put together our vision.
3. Concept Plan
Combining all the elements discussed and observed at our site visit, we create a concept plan. We then meet again to discuss the plan and make any necessary changes.
4. Final Plan
The plan is further refined, adding details such as a full planting plan with locations and quantities. We meet again to discuss and note any changes you’d like and can make up to three revisions of this plan.
5. Final Plan Plus
Even more details are added, creating a construction ready plan. This can be tendered out to other professionals or an instruction guide for DIYers.
