About What We Do
Whether it’s a small-scale need, like redoing a walkway or a perennial bed, or a full-scale project, such as a master plan to be implemented over several seasons, LGD can help you realize your new landscape.
During the initial consultation, Darcy will walk the property with you, taking photos and notes of the conditions, and will listen to your ideas, dreams, and needs for your property.
After that meeting, she will prepare a proposal for the development of your landscape. Once accepted, she will return to the site to take measurements, make sketches retrieve all the information needed for a sound design. Back in the studio, it’s time to draw up a base plan and develop ideas for hardscaping (such as patios, walls, and walkways), plantings and any other desired elements.
Next, you will review the preliminary plan and budget for your proposed garden. After that second meeting, any necessary revisions will be made to the design, on a final plan and plant list. After carefully selecting the plants at the nurseries, Darcy is available to oversee the installation, either by her crew, or with a contractor (this depends on the scale of the project), to make sure that the final garden is installed as it was designed. Just add water! - or we can install a low drip irrigation system for thirsty baby plants.
