Planting Plan

The Process

The design process includes meeting with the client, an articulation of functional and aesthetic design objectives, a site analysis, an assessment of the existing plant inventory and an informal conceptual plan. Clients are kept informed of progress and involved at every step of the design process.

The Plans

Master Plans organize the space as determined by the individualized program for the property. Master Plans are appropriate when the overall landscape is undeveloped or in need of complete redirection.

Planting Plans provide further detail by pinpointing the exact location of every plant and specifying the name of each plant to be installed. Planting Plans typically include a notebook of detailed care and cultural information.

Garden Maintenance Plans translate the cultural information into a customized property maintenance regime.

The Installation

Once the Planting Plans are complete, the design is reviewed with installers and contractors. Hardscapes can be delineated and samples can be provided prior to construction. The plant material is selected at the nursery and the installation is scheduled and supervised. Clients are involved commensurate with their interest.
