RESIDENTIAL DESIGN Proper design development, regardless of the scale or nature of the site, begins with client involvement and a well-planned design. Before plant material is even considered, an analysis of existing conditions is conducted, including analysis of soils, moisture, drainage, light availability, present plant material, and architectural style of the residence. The functionality and aesthetic qualities a client is seeking are also noted as the design becomes more fluid, enveloping all aspects of the site and its intended uses. Finally, the incorporation of plant material with the arrangement of all of these amenities provides maximum efficiency and aesthetics of the space.
A representative from our design team will be happy to meet with you to discuss your landscape needs and goals. We can provide a variety of landscape services tailored to the specific circumstances of your property. Please contact us to set up an appointment for an initial consultation at no cost or obligation to you.
COMMERCIAL & MUNICIPAL DESIGN Landscape Architecture, as a licensed profession, goes beyond the realm of simple plant design. It can be as grand as a master planned community of several thousand acres, a large public park, or a college campus, and it also can be as small as a quiet backyard retreat or a gathering space for a memorial remembrance. By blending land planning, site engineering, building architecture and plant material into a functional and pleasing environment, good design is achieved. Special needs and requirements are often directed by the governing municipal agency or the client. As a member of the development team, working with the client, the project consultants and the municipal agency, our firm can take a project from conception, through City/Village review, to final drawings. All drawings are prepared in AutoCAD format. Additional services include hand and computer renderings, elevations and perspectives, expert testimony, site inspections, irrigation and landscape lighting plans, and tree inventories and analysis.
