At Retreat Landscape Design, we work with you to define, design and deliver your dream landscape.
We take into consideration your lifestyle, the intended use of your new outdoor space, your style and material preferences, as well as your maintenance needs. With a long list of exceedingly satisfied clients, we are confident in our well-established process and high degree of skills and experience that enable us to deliver stunning results and enviable landscape designs to your very own front or backyard.
We leave nothing to chance; we start by learning your vision and preferences, then create a stunning design and a plan that considers all details, and when we get your go-ahead, our construction team works hand in hand with our experienced design staff throughout the installation to get us to project completion on schedule and on budget.
If you are considering your first ever landscaping project, we have a quick overview of the process you can expect when we work with you.
Here are the 6 main process stages we follow:
You tell us what you have in mind and we expand on your dreams, fill in all the blanks and make your ideas come to life! Are you looking for a relaxing retreat or an outdoor entertainment space? Need an expansive seating area or your own putting green, a lush, planted garden or maybe all of the above? We will ask you the right questions to discover what would fill your heart with joy.
We meet on your property to view and measure the grounds, assess slopes, drainage, soil and sun conditions, and existing structure, installations and pipes or electrical cables we need to take into consideration. At that time, we discuss in more detail what is possible.
We draft a scaled 3D design drawing to give you a visual of what your dream landscape will look like. We make any changes based on your feedback to agree on a final design rendering.
Based on your budget , choice of materials, and the scope of your project we provide you with an itemized quote, project scope and construction schedule. Once you have approved all the paperwork, we obtain any necessary permits and get to work.
Our crew arrives to prepare you site for stage one of construction and lays the 'foundation' for our design plan. We keep you informed on each stage and leave the job site as tidy as possible at the end of each day.
Once construction and planting are completed, we take care of any finishing touches and a full clean-up. Then we hold a follow-up meeting with you to ensure you're happy with the end-product and provide you with maintenance recommendations to keep your new landscape looking fabulous.
