Design / Build Questions

Starting a landscape project can be overwhelming and we know you have a lot of questions. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions that may help.

Do I need a design? Yes, most projects start with a landscape design and construction drawings in order to determine the scope of work and give a detailed plan for executing the work. A construction estimate will be provided from these plans. If you already have a professional landscape plan we are happy to provide an estimate.

Depending on the scope of work and design elements involved, we will provide you with a Design Agreement detailing the hours and scope of work needed and help you determine the overall budget for your project.

Depending on the scope of work, your project may need a permit. At the initial consultation we will determine which aspects of your project might require a permit and let you know the costs involved.

Once the size and scope of the project is determined we can offer guidelines as to the time it may take. Many things can effect the project timeline including design decisions, material choices, permit requirements, site conditions, weather and seasonality. The most important part is doing things the right way and the most efficient way to maximize your budget and create ideal outdoor living space you’ve been dreaming of.

In the Northwest, our lead times are longer in our peak season. Spring and summer are the busiest time and you should expect longer lead times. Once the design and planning phase is completed we can give you an estimated construction schedule and determine the start date. Winter can be a great time to do the designing and planning portion, as well as any hardscaping and construction parts.

The term “hardscaping” refers to the hard elements of the landscape such as, concrete, pavers, stone, and masonry.

Even though it rains a lot in the Seattle area we do recommend installing an irrigation system. The summer months are generally dry and without additional water plants and grass may stress and die. Protecting your landscape investment is important but making sure your irrigation system provides efficient and effective water is also critical.

Our designers and horticulture experts will recommend the best plants for your project based on size, shape, texture, growth habit and exposure.

Yes! We work with many of the top pool builders in the Northwest by designing the best location, layout and elements including pool equipment, cabanas, and outdoor kitchens to create the perfect outdoor entertainment space. We can act as the General Contractor to ensure all aspects of the project are managed efficiently and cost effectively while ensuring a beautiful outcome.

We stand behind our work and are always available to you after the construction is complete. We offer industry standard warranty of 1 year for our workmanship and hard materials and manufacturer warranties on all appliances and fixtures.

Give us a call, fill out our contact form or Design questionnaire and tell us about your project. We will take it from there and help you all along the way.
