Simplifying Your Experience With a Proven Step-by-Step Process
With years of experience behind us, we've streamlined our process to make every landscaping project simple and enjoyable for you. Here's what you can expect when you work with us on a design-build project:
Lay the Groundwork
Book your consultation through our online scheduling system directly with our designers at a time that works for you. The designer will determine whether you need a design (and can proceed to the next steps) or if we can skip that phase and put your project on the schedule right away.
Fill out the questionnaire at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled site visit. This gives the designer more information about what you're looking for and will help you and the team make the most of the on-site visit.
Create Your Plan
Your designer will arrive on time and will take a few photos and measurements, and discuss your vision for the space (Design packages are $85 per hour/$2,000 project minimum). Within 48 hours of the visit, your designer will be in touch with the design cost and to schedule a date for the project presentation where they will present a high-level plan for your project. You'll also receive a rough estimate for both the cost and the timeline of the project. When you're ready to move forward, you'll sign the agreement, pay your deposit, and be added to our schedule.
You’ll receive all the details of your design concept along with a complete project budget and timeline.
You'll enjoy one point of contact with a dedicated project manager and crew throughout your project. They will work safely and efficiently from 8:00-5:00 on business days, keeping you up-to-date on their progress, and any time that you have questions or concerns.
When your project is complete, your project manager will do a final walk-through with you and make sure all items in the punch list are documented and that we follow-through on completion of the items. At this point we will invoice you for the remaining balance and if you’re willing, request that you submit a review through our website.
