Every project is unique, so it's important that each Landscape Architect involved with the project visits the site to determine which opportunities and constraints the site will offer. As the Landscape Architect analyzes the site, he/she will consider the specific requirements and requests of the client.

Based on the information collected from the site and the client's requests and requirements, the Landscape Architect will begin the conceptual design process. Usually, multiple plans are created to illustrate different design solutions. The designs are usually loose, sketch-type drawings intended to define the spatial relationships within the design.

During this phase, the conceptual designs will be refined into a Master Plan. This detailed drawing will be used as the foundation for all construction drawings, and it is also during this phase that specific construction materials are determined.

These precise drawings and details will allow the contractor to accurately implement the design. They often detail specific information including spot elevations, precise dimensions, material and planting call outs, special notes, instructions, etc.

The involvement of the Landscape Architect is entirely dependant on the client. We are capable of collecting bids for the client or consulting with bidders already in a relationship with the client.

The designer plays a key role in ensuring the proper implementation of the design. We have a long history in site observation, and take great pride in ensuring that our designs are implemented properly and in a timely fashion. Overseeing our own designs gives us the ability to make sure that materials, construction methods, and workmanship are of the highest standards.
