The design process is an important stage in any construction project. During the design stage, existing issues are resolved and potential problems are identified and eliminated, saving you time and money. The first step of the design process is to conduct a site inventory and analysis of soil, drainage, climate conditions, and existing vegetation.
The next step is to make a list of how you plan to use your landscape, and what you desire for your new design. During this step, there are five questions you should ask yourself:
- How do I currently use the yard?
- How do I want to use the yard?
- How do I want the yard to look?
- What is my maintenance style?
- What is my budget?
You will also want to think about what theme or style you want to guide your design. It might be helpful to look at gardening books and magazines for inspiration. Our landscape architects will then draw up a functional diagram to determine where certain activity spaces should be located and to develop a conceptual plan. Decide whether you want an open or closed space, or a little bit of both. Ask yourself if you would like a naturalistic, English-style garden, or a more formal French-style design, which emphasizes order and geometry. Make sure to keep in mind the style and topography of the neighborhood where your house is located.
The last step is to create a final design that includes all hardscaping and planting details. Don’t worry—all you have to do is sit back and relax as our professional landscape designers do this work for you. We encourage all of our clients to participate in the design process as much or as little as you would like. It’s your space, after all, and we want to make it exceed your expectations.
