A concept design defines all the features of your landscape at a high level. It shows the relationships between areas, pathways to them, and major features, such as a hedgerow or firepit.
Detailed design work is left for later and can be done on a patch-by-patch basis, filling in specifics such as plant species, exact path locations and dimensions of spaces.
Understand the potential of your landscape with a thorough inventory and analysis.
Explore several configurations for the placement of features.
Gain more clarity into the priority of areas, how they are used, and when they might be implemented.
Confidently move forward with the establishment of portions of the landscape.
We will visit your landscape twice: once to gather information and a second time to review and refine 2-4 initial concept designs.
We will walk your landscape listening carefully to your goals, ideas, and budget.
An inventory of the landscape will be created that identifies major features, travel patterns, water flows, and sunlight exposure.
Desired areas, uses, and major features will be noted.
Up to 4 initial concept designs will be created defining the desired areas and pathways between them.
Each layout will likely emphasize a different feature or travel pattern.
Follow Up Visit
The initial concept designs will be reviewed by moving through the landscape and "walking the design."
Preferred elements from the concepts will be noted and an additional concept will likely be sketched showing preferences.
The sketch will then be refined 1-2 times until it meets your expectations.
