Conceptual Master Plan

A rendered drawing that illustrates how each element within your landscape will be laid out and how those elements will relate to each other. This drawing is where we put your dreams on paper. When this drawing is complete, the results are used to develop the rough budget numbers to see how the design correlates to the budget. The plan is then revised, if necessary, in order to stay within the budget. It is typically is a measured site plan that shows critical existing features and proposed features. This drawing, when approved, then becomes the blue print for the construction drawings.

Construction Drawings

Construction drawings can include several sheets, depending on the complexity of the master plan. These drawings are used by various trades such as a landscape contractor, carpenters, masons, etc. to complete concise bids for installing the work as designed. Typically includes:
