How Are Designs Developed?

The design of your property may be approached in several ways. Services are tailored to match your needs and budget whether you require consulting, master plans or complete construction drawings. The level of services you will need should be proportional to the investment you will be making. Site designs are developed using the following approaches:

Half-Day Consultation:
The half-day consultation is essentially a brainstorming session and a very efficient use of our time. We will walk the property and discuss your needs and fill out a questionnaire. Next, I will spend some time surveying the property and developing my thoughts. I will develop a master plan "to scale" on overlay paper. Once we have a workable plan I will "walk you through the property" and mark the plan with a paint gun and flags.
Conceptual Master Plan:
Some properties may be too complex for a half-day consultation or the owner may want a more elaborate plan. Master plans can be prepared on any sheet size at any scale but the most cost effective is an 11"X 17" format. This drawing is rendered and laminated.
Planting Plans & Construction Drawings:
Master plans are general in nature whereas construction drawings are very specific. Construction drawings and planting plans spell out every detail of the project so that a contractor can provide an accurate bid.
