The Design Process

Turning your landscape dreams into a space your family and friends will enjoy for years to come is an exciting process, but it can be difficult to know where to begin. Our landscape designers have the knowledge and experience to analyze your site and design a space that is beautiful and functional. 



Real Designers

Receive a professional, relational experience from beginning to end with your dedicated designer. Your project will also be discussed in a collaborative team environment as they come up with new, creative, and innovative solutions. 

Experienced Professionals

In addition to landscape designers, our team is also comprised of a professional architect and a licensed builder. Our team also has strong relationships with other civil engineering firms, municipalities, jurisdictions, and the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE).

Custom Designs

Receive a custom design plan addressing your needs for your unique property. Depending upon the needs of your project and which design package you purchase, you'll receive a 2D, 3D, and/or animated design, plant list, irrigation, and lighting plans.

Sustainable Practices

Our plans take into consideration your local environmental conditions, including water use, native plantings, ecosystem support, and more.

Initial Conversation

You'll begin by speaking with Isaac, our Design/Build lead. He will get to know you a little bit, your project, timeline, and anticipated budget, as well as schedule a site visit to get started.

Site Visit

When we come for a site visit, we will take on-the-ground photos of your property as well as aerial drone photos where applicable. Your designer will scope out the site for assessing space, and take notes of anything they need to consider during the design and build phases of your project.

Design Reviews

Your designer begins working on your landscape design, collaborating with you throughout the process. Design review meetings can take place in person here at our design center or over video. Keep in mind that depending on the complexity of your project and the type of design package you purchased, A completed design can take between one week and three months from start to finish.

Payment and Construction Scheduling

Once your design is approved by you, a project deposit will secure your spot in the schedule and allow our team to order materials in advance to save time and cost. Once construction is complete, your designer will schedule a final walkthrough with you of your project.

"We are so pleased with the outcome of the design. All of the plants and trees are so beautiful. We have much more privacy already and a little oasis of our own in our side yard now."
