LANDSCAPE CONSTRUCTION PLANS & ADDITIONAL SKETCHES

This document is necessary for more complex projects, and may be required by a structural engineer and/or city permit expeditor. Before we can start the landscape construction plan, we will need a fairly accurate map of the property, which would typically be provided by a surveyor. This map will serve as a base sheet for plan view overlays. I will create a three-dimensional “airplane view” sketch of the garden, to scale. This will enable us to see how the proposed landscape design fits on your site.

WHAT DO WE DO DURING THE PLANNING PHASE?

During this phase, we will make decisions regarding construction materials, elevations, lighting, irrigation, overhangs, grading, drainage, and decks, as required. Finally, we’ll generate a planting plan. We may tour some established local gardens and/or visit nurseries to familiarize you with plants and trees that will do well where you live. We will select the plants and trees you love and that suit your maintenance requirements.
