Landscape Design and Installation
Almost all beautiful landscapes begin with a detailed plan. However, not all plans produce beautiful landscapes. So the question becomes: What makes one plan better than another? All good plans follow the basic principles of art and landscape design. They also adhere to a step-by-step design process that capitalizes on a lot of input from the homeowners. This helps ensure that the finished design meets their expectations and fulfills their needs of the family.
The Empire Landscape Design Process
We start with an interview and analysis of your site. Empire’s designer will walk through your property with you to identify and document your preferences and get a general idea of the end result you are seeking. Next, they present several options to determine what style of landscape design suits your preference. During this meeting, you also will be asked for any additional information that we should consider. This information gives us more input about your goals regarding the landscape of your home. The designer will take accurate measurements and multiple photographs of the site, record any critical information about the layout of the home’s property, changes in the terrain or elevation, drainage conditions, etc. Using this information, a conceptual plan will be drafted for your review.
Conceptual and Master Plans
The designer will then meet with you to review the conceptual plan. This landscape design plan will provide an overview of your project. It will highlight details about such things as the location and general content of planting beds, any placement and nature of any hardscape or other features. During this session, we will check the plan with you to ensure that all of your needs and desires are being addressed.
Depending on the size and scope of your project, the designer may then prepare a scaled master plan which also show the precise layout of planting beds and give a comprehensive listing of plants in the design.
