Trying to work on new house and yard plans (building in 2-4yrs) and would like to seek some preliminary advice from a landscape architect. Please share with me how you offer your services?

    Here is a pretty good description of the design services a great landscape contracting company should offer you: The design process starts with a detailed site visit and analysis to establish the existing conditions and to create a base plan that reflects a realistic view of your site and all its variables. Then we begin creating a custom landscape design that addresses all your needs and takes into account all of your site's unique conditions. We present the concepts and, upon your feedback on design and budget, we work toward a finalized plan and proposal for construction. The final plan is a detailed construction document that conveys the design intent and specifies all construction elements and materials. Along with the master plan, a detailed proposal is provided, summarizing all the project's elements and specifics.
