Design Development

After refining the concept based on your feedback, we create detailed drawings and specifications that outline the precise placement of natural and built elements. This phase also includes selecting materials and plants and may involve collaborating with other professionals such as civil engineers, architects, and environmental scientists.

Our detailed designs are almost always subject to local jurisdictional review and may include state or federal review. We often lead the entitlement process and submit plans for compliance review, adjusting as needed in response to review comments.

Construction Documentation

After completion, we thoroughly review to ensure everything has been installed according to the plans, including assessing plant health, material integrity, and the functionality of structural features.

Maintenance Planning

Lastly, we develop a maintenance plan to ensure the longevity and aesthetic appeal of the landscape. This plan includes schedules for pruning, watering, fertilizing, and other necessary care practices to keep the site looking its best.
