Design

Complete and thoughtful planning

GreenScapes specializes in residential landscape design. Through our comprehensive design-build process, a landscape architect will work directly with you to design a landscape and outdoor environment you will enjoy for many years to come.

The process

Initial consultation

Our landscape designer will meet with you at your property or home. During the initial consultation we will explore:

  • how you will use your green space (child's play, entertainment, privacy)
  • issues that you may be having or problems to be resolved
  • the types of plants and materials you like
  • your preference for design styles
  • other landscapes or gardens that you find appealing
  • your budget range and targeted completion date
Site analysis

A complete site analysis is conducted and a scaled drawing is created. The site analysis will include existing plants, beds or other features, drainage issues, elevation changes and the style of your home.

Design completion

The site analysis and the information collected during the first meeting will be combined with potential plants and landscaping materials to complete the design. Horticulturalists select plants to provide year-round color, texture and fragrance. Hardscape materials will be incorporated into the selection process as well.

The design will also take into account the level of maintenance desired and incorporate hardscapes, water featuresirrigation systems, and entertainment spaces into the natural surroundings.

Design and proposal review

The landscape designer will meet with you again to review the completed design plan to review the design and materials that have been incorporated. At that time a cost estimate will also be provided for the project.

Proposal acceptance

Once you have accepted the proposal your installation will be scheduled.

Have your own plan?

GreenScapes can review existing plans to determine if more effective materials and procedures can be utilized. That means you won't waste money for design elements that don't work within your plan.

Beyond design

Once your plan is complete, GreenScapes has an installation team to complete the design and a maintenance team to keep it looking fresh and new. Why not hire one company to handle all aspects of your landscape 12-months a year.
