On site consultation:
SITE FIRST: EACH project begin with an onsite consultation with the client.
In this meeting we try to get to know the client and the site & establish their wants, needs and wishes for the site. Working with the client, we analyze the site and develop a program and scope of work for the project. We follow this with a written proposal and design fees.
WE CREATE CONCEPTUAL MASTER PLANS BASED OFF OF ACCURATE BASE MAPS.
Accurate base maps are created by visiting the site, taking measurements, photographing the site, as well as using GOOGLE aerial photography and utilizing available civil surveys.
A typical masterplan includes a scaled design for all the Site Elements, Hardscapes, Patios, Pools, Decks, Driveways, etc. The masterplan is considered a long range plan and overall vision for the site. The masterplan can be implemented in phases over the course of several years.
Upon approval, review and revisions to the conceptual master plan, we will provide the construction drawings.
A typical set of construction drawings includes the following:
• Layout plan / Dimensioning plan
• Grading and Drainage plan
• Construction details
• Planting plan and Planting schedules
• And landscape lighting plan
At the request of the owner, we will provide on site coordination with the owner and contractor. We can also help in collecting bids from the contractors.
