Landscaping is a significant factor in the beauty and value of a home. A well planned and professionally executed design will make living in a home and on a property more enjoyable and usable, but will also add actual value in the real estate market. While figures vary across the industry, you could expect upwards of a 20% return on investment for hardscape and softscape projects.
When you are considering a landscape enhancement project like a walkway, patio, fire feature or tree plantings, there are two main keys to success:
Our installation division has decades of experience bringing ideas to life. With our thorough experience of every phase in hardscape construction, we are there from the very start. This means fewer surprises for you along with efficient, quality craftsmanship. We will approach your property as a whole, identifying exciting opportunities, as well as potential issues that should be addressed such as poor drainage or sinking pavers.
We are here to listen to you, articulate your goals, and share our expertise.
This will be easy. Simply call us at
At the site visit we'll gather all the important information we need. During these times of COVID and social distancing, we can speak with you on the phone while you are in your home, or meet with you in person outside, keeping a six foot distance. You are encouraged to share your drawings, photos and web links that reference what you are envisioning.
Depending on the complexity of the project, we may suggest having the design done by our in-house team, or we may recommend a landscape architect in our close network. The design will consider your short term enjoyment of the property as well as the long term implications of durability, and environmental balance.
Once the design has been established, our estimating team will go to work and deliver you a firm quote for all phases of the project. This pricing will only change if you choose to add new aspects of scope, and formal documentation will be provided. Our quotes are generally good for three months as material and labor rates vary from season to season.
Project Management Plan
During the pricing phase, we will provide a realistic timeline for beginning and completing your project. The project management plan will break this into phases to show you what to expect along the way. The project will be assigned a dedicated manager to oversee all aspects of material quality, field worker management, safety, budget, schedule and accountability to the original design. As the work moves along, any necessary decisions will be presented to you in advance of progress so you have time to consider any possible new information, such as soil quality or discovery of ledge.
Final Inspection and Hand Off
Upon completion, the project manager will go over every aspect of the work with you for your review and to ensure satisfaction. You will also be given a manual of any routine maintenance that must be performed such as tree fertilization, or pressure washing. The new installation is now yours to enjoy for years to come.
