Site Design - Planning and Preparation

What you should know about doing a project with us!

During our initial meeting we will look at your site and discuss your ideas and budget. I will share my ideas and vision with you.
Depending on your site, we will discuss many practical issues such as:

  • Grading
  • Drainage
  • Traffic flow (cars and people)
  • Parking
  • Winter use
  • Hardscapes (walks, steps, retaining walls, patios, fire pits)
  • Location and size of plant beds, lighting, irrigation , maintenance, etc.

Design is extremely important

I like to focus on practicality and aesthetics.

  • With a strong knowledge of plants and trees, I will plan and plant in the proper conditions and space accordingly. We want your landscape to mature nicely over the coming years and decades.
  • We will discuss your level of involvement with your landscape and design so that you know what maintenance needs to be done in the future.
  • Watering needs of plants and turf are addressed. (I prefer to use native and low water plants when practical.)
  • We then formulate a design or plan and agree on what work needs to be done.
  • We will schedule your project and keep in touch.
  • Once we start your project we generally stay on your site until it is completed.
