Landscape Master Plan
By definition, a Master Plan is an all encompassing design of your property. A Landscape Master Plan is the road map to your ideal outdoor space, created jointly between you and your designer.
This process begins with an on site meeting. During this meeting the designer will develop a site analysis to include all pertinent information that is necessary for the initiation of a design. Some of the necessary information includes property lines, acreage, geographic location of structures, elevation/grade change, soil type, current water movement/drainage, exposure directions, surrounding plant material, etc. This meeting also includes the development of the client wish list. Your designer will help you to ascertain all of the items that should be incorporated into the future design. At this point you and your designer will also discuss your budget, predetermined material choices and the desired time frame for total project completion.
Next comes the fun part. In between meetings your designer will conceptualize a plan for your outdoor living space. During the second meeting your designer will furnish the Master Plan with specialty 3D renderings (if needed), and approximate budget for you to review. Together at this time you will analyze the chosen circulation layouts, color schemes, plant and construction materials, irrigation possibilities, additional fixtures including lighting/cooking/heating, etc.
Prior to the third meeting, your designer will finalize all project drawings to incorporate all of the necessary details from the second meeting. Simultaneously developing the final price proposal to be signed for project initiation.
Upon signing of the contract for construction your project will be scheduled for commencement.
