STEP BY STEP PLANNING
I can help you achieve your new landscape in a series of short consultations in person. My design process begins with an initial consultation where I gather information by listening, taking notes, assessing your design style, person tastes, lifestyle and budget. And because there is a hundred different ways and ideas that would work for your yard my goal is finding out what fits you. So really...
My imagination is inspired by your wish list.
From concept to completion and with your final design in hand you may choose to implement your project in phases working from a master plan or maybe a plan that is within a specific budget and hiring a professional contractor. Either way I can help pull it all together and provide a scaled plan where you can compare apples to apples with contractors.
The Landscape Design Process:
1. Preliminary meeting. I meet with you at the site, discuss the scope of the project, interview you about ideas and preferences, take notes, and walk the site.
2. Base Plan. The first step in the design process is to take measurements and digital pictures. This information will be used to prepare a base drawing of the project area where I will be able to work from.
3. Preliminary Design. This is an initial hand drawn colored rendering or CAD generated drawing of a rough layout to see if we are heading in the right direction. We can make several changes to the preliminary design. Our end product is a CAD drawing, I use 3D drawings and/or hand colored drawings as a visual aid to get us there.
4. Final Delivery. Once we have completed the design process, I will deliver the final design.
Design fees are $75 per hour (2 hour minimum). Designs start at $1400.00. I ask for a $700 retainer to secure your place on my schedule.
For clients that need help with plant lists and smaller areas Morganne is available for short consultations $350.00
