Planning & Design

Landscape Planning & Design is the most important part of any project large or small. We start with an initial meeting to discuss your project, walk the site and get an idea of budget and tastes. We will ask for a property survey to get started as well as an upfront design fee so we can provide a hand drawn color rendering for your project. This comprehensive drawing is to scale and includes existing structures from the home, driveway, decks and steps to name a few. Grades and elevations, proposed new hardscape, size, shape and location of a pool, plantings, drainage, locations for play sets and sheds. If it’s a pool project we will locate fencing, gates & pool equipment.

Hand Drawn Color Renderings

It’s our belief that our hand drawn color renderings are far superior to 3D and CAD related drawings that in many cases cannot be submitted for permit purposes and are conceptual only. Hand drawings can be used for permit and actual build purposes and they also provide a very well thought out plan to be executed throughout your project or in phases to be completed over time.

Hand drawn color renderings are completed, stamped and sealed by a certified landscape architect not a “designer” whose plans cannot be used for permits as they need to be stamped by a licensed architect. Thoughtful placement of hardscapes, piers, low voltage lighting, cabanas, pool houses, proper plant materials to provide shade, color, privacy and be deer proof when needed go into these plans.
