Landscape Design Process
At Outdoor Lifestyles, we specialize in custom landscape design and construction for homes and businesses in the Denver metro and foothills area. You dream it; we envision and create it – often exceeding the bounds of your imagination!
We strive to make the landscape design and construction experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. Below are the necessary steps for a residential or commercial project.
You Give Us A Call
If you’re looking for a professional landscape designer and professional craftsman capable of constructing very technical designs, give us a call, (303) 425-8963. We’ll talk about your landscape design project in general terms, but due to the complex nature of our projects, we won’t be able to give you an estimate without defining the scope of the work. To define the scope, one of our professional designers will need to construct a landscape design for you. You and the landscape designer will review the blueprint with budgetary numbers associated with the proposed plan.
We Meet For A Free Consultation
If it seems like we’re a good fit, we’d be happy to meet with you – onsite – for a free landscape design consultation. In this first landscape design meeting, we’ll want to learn more about your hobbies and interests, as well as your ideas and desires. The more we know about what makes you happy, the easier it is for us to deliver a beautiful landscape design that is tailored to your interests and lifestyle. We’ll have you fill out a Wish List and Design fee agreement, and from there, we can talk about the landscaping project, explain the landscape design and build process in more detail, and discuss the budget.
You Hire Us
If you’re ready to move forward, we’ll collect the landscape design fee and have you sign a landscape design agreement. At this point, we’ll give you an estimated date of completion for the landscape design.
We Meet To Discuss The Preliminary Landscape Design Plan
At the next meeting, we’ll present the preliminary design plan that our team of professional landscape designers has created, based on your needs and wants. We’ll explain everything on the landscape drawings and answer any questions you might have. We can talk about the features and budget, and make changes to the landscape plans.
We Meet To Firm Up The Final Landscape Design
The final landscape design is an exciting phase, because now, everything starts to come to life. From Outdoor Landscape Lighting to tranquil water features we can handle all of your landscape design and construction needs. We’ll step you through the landscape design and show you pictures of trees, shrubs, and plants. We’ll also look over detailed drawings of water features and fireplaces, if those are part of the project. We’ll go over the final budget numbers, addressing each line item listed. If you have any additional design modifications at this stage, we’ll be happy to include them, at an additional cost. Otherwise, if everything checks out, we’ll confirm payment scheduling and schedule your landscape design project for our next available slot.
We’re Ready To Build
Once we start building your landscape project, we have a professional crew on the project continuously – delivery of materials and weather permitting. Most landscape design projects take from 1 week to several months, depending on the size and complexity of the project. And then comes the best part…enjoying the beauty and functionality of your outdoor living space.
