Design steps

  1. Negotiation visit

The planning begins with a visit and listening to your wishes. I ask what you want (plantings, pergola, water theme, summer kitchen, beach renovation, swimming pond), examine the conditions of the yard (light, air direction, soil, vegetation, routes), how to use the yard (living, sports, plant breeding, animal welfare), what is in the neighborhood what colors, style, and materials are desired. Together we are looking for a way to change beautiful and functional. By discussing, the idea is implemented and a common vision is formed to concretize the plans.

During the consultation visit, a quote may be requested for a draft plan and schedule, or you may be left thinking about schedules and resources. For the sketch, pictures and measurements are taken for the sketch and the execution of the contract, the necessary permits, the budget, and communication are discussed.

  1. Draft plan

The sketch plan outlines the yard’s functions, costs, surfaces, sizes, materials, colors, design language, lighting, and relationships to each other. The sketch has been made on the computer. The sketch shows the colors, materials, colors, plants, and atmosphere of the plan. 3D images of the view lines can be attached to the sketch separately, especially to coordinate different modes.

  1. Masterplan

The approved draft plan is progressed to a masterplan. This step is the most accurate and demanding. Each area, including cobblestones, plants to be planted, etc., is identified in its own place. It pays to invest. Once the materials and their quantities are known, a contract offer can be requested and stay within the agreed budget whether the work was done by yourself or as a contract. The implementation plan is made with Vectorworks software. Separate structural and detail drawings are made of the necessary structures or functions, such as water subjects, pergolas, irrigation systems, or lighting.

  1. Maintenance schedule

If desired, a monthly maintenance scheduler is provided for the care of the site’s vegetation and structures. The care calendar makes it easy to take care of plant welfare. The parts of the care calendar are fertilizing, cutting, watering, dividing, moving, etc. The care calendar has a document to which you can also attach your own entries and pictures.
