Meet & Greet takes about 15 to 30 mins of your time, going over your ideas and desires to make sure we are a good fit. If you feel we are a good fit, we execute an agreement for design services whether it is a full design or a simple sketch. Either we conduct a consultation that day or schedule a consultation at a later time. Before our consultation, visit houzz.com and create an idea book. Based on the idea book and the shape your yard, we will create a garden design suitable for your outdoor lifestyle.
We start by creating a base plan. We will visit your home, take measurements and draw a base plan. We then formulate ideas by drawing quick sketches and lay out your garden over the base plan. During the brainstorming process you will see a few of the sketches and you can provide us with your feedback. From there we put it all together by creating the first iteration of the garden design. We will schedule a face to face meeting to review the design. If you have changes, a 2nd and/or 3rd iteration may be required. After all the changes are incorporated we will present a final plan. This plan is used to calculate the cost to install the project.
Once the design phase is completed, we submit your design for bid. We want to make sure we provide the absolute best price to install your project. Therefore we require at least 3 bids from expert contractors. This is especially important in case our crew is installing other projects. We want to prevent any delays in getting the work done. The proposal is a fully executable agreement to install your project from start to finish. The proposal phase usually takes up to 3 weeks depending upon how busy we are.
Once the installation phase is completed, we submit a proposal to maintain your garden. You can choose between a month-to-month, 6 months or a 12 month agreement. We have a few packages to choose from. Gold, Platinum and Diamond packages. Often times, homeowners do not know have to care for their garden once it is installed. What plants to choose, when to fertilize and/or augment the soil. We remove the uncertainty. Our garden maintenance crew has been our garden caretakers for over 7 years.
