The Design Process

Verde Gardens specializes in landscape design for residences and small commercial sites.

Our design process begins with an on site client meeting to review the site and begin to define the client's needs. After that initial meeting, we will ask the client to fill out a questionnaire designed to better refine desired goals and preferences. Next, we prepare a proposal, including estimated costs and timeline.

Once the proposal is accepted, a site analysis is performed, including measurements and photographs of all features pertaining to the designated design areas. We then prepare 2-3 to-scale, plan views, rough sketches laying out potential garden design options.

After deciding on a design direction, a final landscape sketch in plan view is created showing specific plants in their location and hardscape materials defined. Concurrently, a computer plant photo library is presented to allow the client to view the plant choices.

Once the client has made the final approval on all design features, the final detailed black-line diagram is created along with a final plant list, and site preparation and maintenance recommendations.
