Our team strives to create a stunning landscape design that embodies everything our clients envision in a perfect landscape. That's why we take our time and follow a thorough 3-step design process: consultation, design, and installation.

We begin the landscape process with the consultation phase, a completely free service to our clients, in which clients get a chance to voice their lawn goals and desired future landscape style. Next, we enter the design phase where clients will work with a well-versed landscape designer and exchange ideas, collaboratively plan, and develop a 2D or 3D design rendering. After client approval of the design proposal, the installation phase begins in which we start construction and transform your current property into a new personalized landscape design.

The Consultation Phase: Property Improvement and Landscaping Goals

We know that the landscape design process can sometimes be overwhelming which can sometimes cause clients to feel apprehensive about starting the transformation journey. The consultation phase serves as an overview of what you can expect to happen during the design and installation phases and allows contractors to suggest what improvements should be made to improve the health of your current lawn.

In the consultation phase, our experienced landscape designer conducts a site visit with the client and addresses current lawn issues such as drainage, irrigation correction, or landscape bed preparation.

During this phase, clients get a chance to state features they would like to see in their new landscape design such as softscaping and plantings, hardscaping, walkways, and water features. This is also an opportune time for clients to discuss future maintenance plans with our team.


The Design Phase: Softscaping, Hardscaping, & Design Rendering

Once we enter the design phase, clients are able to go in-depth about the softscaping and hardscaping features they desire in their new landscape design.

Here are some lively plants, trees, and shrubs we commonly use in our landscape designs:

  • Philidondren (Monstera)
  • Iris Regina
  • Dazzle Sheflera
  • Copper Leaf
  • Liriope
  • Green Island Ficus
  • Bouganvillea
  • Hibiscus
  • Alexander Palms
  • Coconut Palms
  • Foxtail Palms
  • Canary Island Date Palms
  • Royal Palms
  • Pygmy Dates
  • Bottle Palms

Here are some sophisticated hardscaping features you can also include in your landscape design:

  • Fire Pits & Outdoor Fireplaces
  • Outdoor Kitchens
  • Outdoor Lighting
  • Patios, Walkways, and Driveways
  • Water Features
  • Seating & Retaining Walls

Our landscape designer then takes those ideas and develops a design proposal plan that focuses on balance, proportion, focal points, and depth. As the designer is constructing the design plan, they will move and relocate certain softscapes and hardscapes to ensure your outdoor living space is balanced and proportional.

Once our landscape designer is confident in the landscape design, they generate a 2D blueprint or a cutting-edge 3D video that depicts what the future property will look like that includes proposed materials, plant lists, and location of softscaping and hardscaping features. During the design proposal, clients are able to ask questions and express concerns, ask for input or advice, and request revisions and receive an updated design.

Design renderings can be presented in either 2D or 3D form:

  • 2D design renderings are more cost-effective and include an aerial view of the renovated property and pictures of plants and textures.
  • 3D design renderings are more costly and include an animated virtual walkthrough, day/night property viewing, property flyover feature, and display of plants at different stages using 3D design software.

The Installation Phase: The Landscape Construction Process

The final phase of the landscaping process is the installation phase in which we start the construction process and transform your current property into a landscape masterpiece. Contractors will begin installing softscapes and hardscapes such as planting beds, outdoor fire pits, and water features, We make sure our clients are involved throughout this phase by having our team stay in routine contact with clients.

We always make sure we receive client approval before we move into the installation phase.

Once we've completed the process, our landscape experts conduct a thorough walkthrough of the property to ensure complete satisfaction.
