Design Process

Initial Consultation

By connecting with our clients in a lively discussion of discovery we endeavor to create designs which will encourage them to connect with their outdoor space in a more profound way. Our approach is to provide our clients with breathtakingly beautiful and sustainable landscape design that reflects their own unique style. We balance the individual personalities and interests of our clients with the analysis of the site and environmental, cultural, and historical influences. This process enables us to achieve distinctive outdoor living spaces that impart exceptional style and sense of place for our client in the arid desert. After a thorough discussion, a determination of design costs is given to the client based on hours expected to create a plan for the particular landscape.

 

Design Contract Details

Once a design estimate fee and time frame for design completion has been agreed upon with the client, a signed contract and deposit of half the design fees is expected. At this point the project commences.

 

Assessment and Design Phase

All landscape design work is customized for each client project. Landscape design concepts are created based upon the client values and interests. A landscape design is then created in CAD based upon site analysis and cultural, historical, and environmental influences. Design elements such as circulation, patios, fire features, pool and water features, outdoor kitchens, and plant material emerge from this amalgamation. One or more design layouts are created, and the next step is to move into the preliminary design presentations.
