CUSTOM LANDSCAPE DESIGN, THE PROCESS
Acquiring a landscape design from an experienced and creative landscape designer is the first and most important step in beginning your landscape design project. Whether you want a custom swimming pool or a complete backyard renovation; a landscape design in Newport beach from Jesse Escalera will bring to you the most creative, beautiful, functional and technically sound ways of accomplishing your landscaping goals. Here are the basic steps involved in a landscape design process:
- Design Consultation of Design Services
- Rendering Designs Review
- Presentations of Final Design and Proposal
- Project Completion
Step #1 Landscape Design Consultation of Design Services
If you are interested in hiring JE Proscapes for your landscape design and custom project, the first step is to reach out to schedule a landscape design consultation via phone call or online quote request.
At this initial meeting, Jesse will talk with you about the landscape design you are dreaming about and discuss some creative options and ideas. It’s important for him to understand your wants and needs to help design features that exceed your taste. Jesse will often times provide a verbal ballpark costs for the type of projects you are describing. A precise bid for your landscape project cannot be provided until the Final Design has been completed, which is typically the last step in the design process.
Landscape Design Price
During the initial landscape design consultation, you will be provided with a fixed price for the landscape design services needed for your project. This price covers all of the design work, revisions, and meetings needed to provide you with a design you’ll absolutely love. If you are worried about paying for a design and then receiving a plan that you don’t even like or is too expensive, don’t be! Jesse will make as many revisions as needed until you have a plan you like enough to have installed.
Goals of the Landscape Design Consultation
- Learn about the customers wants/needs to determine if Jesse is a great fit for the project
- Discuss general options and ideas for the project and inform the customer of the rough ballpark costs for the type of improvements they are interested in
- Provide the customer with a price for the landscape design services required and get the site measurements and pictures needed to get started on the design.
Step #2 Conceptual Design Review
The goal of the conceptual design review step is to involve the customer in the design process early on. It’s possible to spend a lot of time on a single design that may not be exactly what a customer is looking for. Instead, Jesse will most often put together a few conceptual design layouts. This gives you a chance to look at many different ways of doing something, like the shape and layout of a outdoor kitchen for instance. Other design companies just show them one take it or leave it design. Once he receives feedback from the customer on which design layout appeals to them the most, he uses that conceptual drawing as a template for future revisions.
After presenting these design renderings to you and talking over the pros and cons of each, you decide the final look.
Step # 3 Presentations of Final Design and Proposal
Using the conceptual design that appealed most to you, Jesse will begin working on a final design and proposal. Sometimes there are elements from more than one rendering that will be combined during this phase to create the final plan. The final landscape design will include all of the fine details of the project including: materials to be used, construction methods, details about grading or outdoor drainage work needed, location of landscape lighting, and all of the other small details that will be important for installation work and pricing.
Once he has all of the design and installation details determined, he can provide a fixed proposal price for the installation of the project shown in the design. A detailed proposal will be provided that breaks the project into sections/line items making it easy to understand the cost.
Step # 4 Installation
Now that the plan is set and the project has been booked, it’s time to start construction! JE Proscapes currently has skilled landscape construction crews that work on one project at a time until completion. This means the same crews comes to your house M-F until the project is done! In order to ensure high quality work, Jesse uses only the landscape installation crews that it employs full time. This means no waiting around for subcontractors!
