to a FINAL DESIGN...
The M.J. Design team listens to your vision,
establishes a plan, and then works to design your dream.
Whether developing a full master plan or a small, intimate perennial garden, proper design is the first step to a successful, aesthetically appealing landscape that will be enjoyed for years. Our best attribute is our ability to create a quality design that focuses on the client’s needs and choosing the proper plant for the proper location. The design process evolves over the course of various meetings and on many different levels. Below is a rough breakdown of the various design phases and vices that are provided by M.J. Design Associates, Inc.
A STEP by STEP
PROCESS of QUALITY
We meet with you to get a feel for the location and review your needs, requirements, timeframe, and scope of work.
Design Service Proposal
Provide a detailed proposal and outline for design services and create an overall budget for services offered.
Site Inventory & Analysis
Upon approval of design proposal, this visit is used to gather information about the site. Record existing utilities, plant material and any other information needed to complete an accurate base plan.
After the base plan is set, rough sketches of design concepts will be presented for review to make sure we are moving in the direction envisioned.
Once the conceptual designs are agreed upon, more detailed drawings will be created with specific plant names and any hardscaping details will be laid out. This phase could include a series of meetings to discuss and finalize the design. The drawing will be completed, color rendered if necessary, and presented to the client for their keeping. This plan will also be detailed for use in final landscape installation.
If required, detailed working drawings can be prepared for construction and installation. These would include specifications for building hardscape features as well as plant materials and quantities.
