Natural Path Landscaping: Creating a Natural Work of Art Right Outside Your Door
The design is critical since even a perfect implementation will not overcome shortcomings in the overall plan. The design must take into account drainage, budget, functionality, beauty, and the surroundings. This is the time to flush out many of the details of construction, to ensure the results match expectations.
Our professional approach to your project
We start each project with an initial meeting to discuss your needs and any special requirements or concerns. At this first meeting, we take measurements, take pictures, and discuss various options. All of this information is then turned into a concept with pricing to establish a rough budget. We then move to a detailed design phase with  a scaled drawing,  any choices to be made (such as choice of materials and paving pattern), or  design details to be finalized (such as measurements for curves and slopes), and  the finalized pricing.
The end result is that all this information is put into a written contract so there is no misunderstanding and materials can be easily ordered. This process gives a real sense that the pricing is precise and unlikely to change. It also ensures that the customer ends up with the functionality and design they were expecting.
We pride ourselves on developing designs that are beautiful, unique and functional.
The test of time
While we certainly take great pride in how each landscape construction project looks at completion, we are more interested in seeing how it looks five or six years down the road. That's when our expertise and care prove themselves. Was the base adequately prepared? Were the proper materials chosen? Was careful attention given to grades and drainage? The passage of time is the ultimate test. It is also a test of our "low maintenance" design and, finally, how well we have engaged you emotionally in your landscaping project.
One of our project designs included curved granite steps, a deck, patio, and walkway to a backyard pool. We created conceptual drawings to show the project design, and detailed drawings with angles and dimensions - down to each stone - to serve as construction blueprints.
