Once the final plan is ready, we can begin prepping the site for construction.
We will review your site again to take accurate measurements and to mark off the area for construction. Starting a project correctly makes a big difference. This preparation step is critical to a successful landscape project. From site staging to drainage and grading planning, this step is extremely important.
This is when we will begin to lay the foundation or skeleton of the project. It’s hardest at this stage with everything going on to visualize what will come from the construction because we are putting in place the needed foundational elements first.
- Clear Area for Construction
- Lay Foundations
- Start with Hardscape Elements
- Patios, Walls and other Structural Elements
During this phase, we begin to rough in elements like grading and will start planting some materials. If we’ve decided to install a system that runs through your property like irrigation or lighting, this is the step where we will install those systems.
- Plant Installation
- Rough Grading
By now, things will start to look and feel like the final design. The job is not over, as there are many very important activities at this stage, but your project should start looking and feeling more complete. Keep in mind, when a plant heavy project is completed it can take several seasons for your plants to mature and fill out to the desired aesthetic. Proper landscape maintenance for the first year after your project is critical.
- Clean Up
- Finish Grading
- Mulch / Compost
