Seven well-planned and simple steps to a beautiful outdoor environment!

1

Consultation

Assessment
Client Vision
Define Project

A consultation is an on-site meeting where I listen and learn about your needs and vision for your space. Together we:
  • identify your preferences
  • define a budget and scope of work
  • make general recommendations

Design Proposal: Following the consultation, a tailor-made proposal is provided based upon the scope of work

If the proposal is accepted and the agreement signed, we will move to the next step.
*There is no obligation beyond consultation.
