Client Input

This initial meeting will focus on your personal style (and dreams!) which will help us on our way to creating a complete conceptual vision of the property.  Client provides as many pictures and magazine “cutouts” as possible in order to communicate to us more of your vision.  The goal of this meeting is to create a Photographic Outline of your style in gardens and garden elements.

Preliminary Design Presentation

Using a “rough” plan view design, we present our vision for your property.  The goal of this meeting is to communicate to your vision and the dynamics of your property as we see it.  We will seek candid feedback and reaction from you.  We will have and open discussion regarding project budgets and the effect of Elements, Detail, and Construction Method on the total cost of the project.
