Design can transform a new or existing landscape. Thoughtful choice of plant materials combined with quality composition, aesthetic & architecture are the essential elements in creating a beautiful and engaging environment. We aim to unite these elements with our clients' functional needs, vision, and style through the design process.
The first step is to talk to us.
We would love to discuss your project with you. We want to understand your vision for your landscape. We will share with you our process for guiding you through a successful landscape installation. Schedule an onsite visit with one of our project managers. If you like what you hear, we’ll move to the next step.
The next step is to sign the design agreement.
A deposit gets the design started. In this phase we work together to develop a design that meets your needs choosing hardscape elements and plants that reflect your style and maintenance requirements. Throughout this phase we work with your budget requirements designing your dream landscape. One of the most important advantages of the design build process is that it allows you to feel more confident about estimated costs and feel more secure about staying within your budget. Our designers and project managers work closely together, so they can specify the most cost-effective materials and methods for landscape installation.
The final step is to sign a landscape installation agreement.
At this point in the process, you’ve approved the design including the specified hardscape and plant palette and been given a detailed cost analysis estimate for your project. Once you sign the construction agreement, you are assigned a project manager, a general timeframe will be given for the project to begin and a schedule is developed for the project. Construction will begin dependent on the overall schedule, weather, and unforeseen delays. As a bonus, the design build process saves you valuable time. You won’t experience the delay of putting your project “out to bid” between design and construction because we manage the entire schedule, from our initial conversation to turning on the irrigation system. The entire staff at Wild Earth Gardens works hard to keep you informed and as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process – especially during the landscape installation. All that’s left now is for you to enjoy your new outdoor space!
