LANDSCAPE DESIGN FOR THE HOMEOWNER

For people who want to run the project themselves or want us to bid out the project to three or more contractors. We prepare and a professional detailed plan of the project and offer professional direction. It will include everything from the amount of irrigation emitters being used, to the square footage of decking, to how many tons of granite rock needed for the property. We even specify the type of light bulb to use in the low voltage lighting. Building details of masonry structures may also be included in order to build according to the specifications you expect.

The process begins with a thorough inventory and analysis of the state of your property followed by an on site discussion focused on the scope of the potential project, layout options and material options.

At your home we have a discussion about what you want to see when you walk out the door. Do you want a desert look, more of a tropical feel; grass no grass, a BBQ, a fireplace, a pool … and so on.

We will be giving you input along the way together we will develop a unique plan that fits your lifestyle and is appropriate for your home.

The next step is physically measuring the property and taking digital pictures to create the site map. We may use some on line tools to help increase accuracy.

Finally we take all this information to the office and draw the landscape plan in AutoCAD. This is the same computer program the architects use to build homes. We then email the plan to you as a pdf file. The materials list or legend will call out the plants and sizes, how many valves and emitters for irrigation, how many tons of granite, the square footage of the decking material and so on. We actually tell you what type of light bulbs to use in the low voltage lighting.

If you want to have a contractor do the work, we will send the project out to 3 or more contractors to bid. Everyone will be bidding off the same plan. You will get a true apples to apples comparison on how much it will cost to build your project.

If you choose the Referral Service, we will be at the job site as your eyes and ears. We work for you not the contractor. We stand side by side with you watching our vision built by the contactor you choose. It’s all about you.

How do we make money you ask? Contractors work tighter on their pricing when we are involved and pay us for the opportunity to build your project. They look at us as a source of 100 plus jobs per year without advertising. This is why having us bid out the project will save you money. If there is a contractor you want us to add to the mix, just give us the name and telephone number and we will.

This project management is included in both the $300 designer on site price and the $184 designer on line price at no extra charge.

Great designs do not need to be expensive.
