The Design Process – Explained

October 9, 2016

Design services start with a one-on-one consultation at your residence with Kevin or Susan Mulkern. From there, we’ll put the ideas to paper and provide a proposal based on your landscaping needs.

Some things to consider when brainstorming landscaping design are:

Lifestyle: What do you imagine using the backyard for? Evening events, lunch, games for children?
Soil: What plants will grow best in the part of the island you live in?
Space: How much space do you have? Will it allow ample room for water features?

At the end of the design process customers will have detailed drawings of the property’s existing conditions, the proposed landscape plantings, an automatic irrigation system and low voltage outdoor lighting (if desired) complete with specifications and material keys. The design will include a proposal for our company to install the landscape. These plans are drawn up with ease of use in mind. This process usually takes approximately 30 hours of drafting and meeting time.

Refer to the included graphic for details of what to expect with the design process.
