Design Process

The design process is collaborative, with client and designer working together to achieve a landscape that meets functional, aesthetic and ecological goals.

1.  Initial Consultation

You bring your dreams, ideas and wish list.
I listen, take notes and measure the property.

2. Site Analysis

The details of the site are transferred to a base plan and studied with regard to sunlight hours, grading, drainage, soil structure, wind speed, existing plantings, utilities and site lines.

3. Preliminary Design

Based on the initial meeting, I prepare a preliminary sketch drawn to scale and present it for approval at the second meeting along with a 3D rendering. Ideas are re-worked and materials discussed, then back to the studio to finalize the drawings.

4. Master Plan

You will receive the Master Plan at the final meeting. This scaled drawing and accompanying construction drawings contain everything that is needed for a contractor to quote and build the project.
