All of our projects begin with a complimentary consultation to review your landscaping requirements. Once we have a clear understanding of the scope of work, we prepare an estimate. When working with new clients, some of the things we take into consideration include:
- How you use your yard–for people who love to entertain outdoors, we install outdoor living spaces and lighting.
- Whether nor not you have children and pets–we want to make sure that we are planting kid-friendly vegetation that will withstand the wear and tear of active children and pets.
- We have a strong environmental sensibility and practice sustainable design as much as possible. We make every effort to repair fences, decks and irrigation systems rather than just installing new ones. Durability is an important component of our green ethic.
- We know that water is a valuable resource and recommend drought-tolerant plants as much as possible.
Many of our clients like to garden, so a frequent spring project for us includes rototilling beds to prepare them for planting flowers and vegetables. For those who are looking for a low-maintenance approach, we often recommend planting groundcover that requires minimal effort.
New clients should know that we often take a phased approach. By having a long-term plan, we are able to save them money by creating the infrastructure that will support a larger scope of work.
