We have an open and flexible landscape design process.  It begins with a clear definition of the client’s goals and objectives.  These are fitted to the unique opportunities that are found in the client’s site. The design develops by honoring both the opportunities and the constraints.Together with the client, we explore design alternatives before synthesizing a final plan.

Realistic financial goals are as important to us as they are to you. Wish lists and project expectations are quickly paired with budget realities. Materials and subcontractors are selected based on value and quality. The client is always included in this process. Design fees are fair and reasonable.  Construction supervision, material, and subcontractor selection are inclusive, and covered by a twelve percent construction management fee. A one-year warranty applies to all materials and construction — the entire project.
