Design

Our detailed design process and landscape design professionals ensure a quality landscape that will enhance the enjoyment of your property.

Here's what you can expect

1

Initial Consultation

To ensure that we best understand the opportunities and constraints of your landscape, we offer a complimentary initial consultation. The initial consultation is a concise conversation that will help determine the best avenue for us to assist with your landscape objectives.

In your initial consultation, you can expect a FREE 30-45 minute meeting with one of our experienced landscape designers where we will:

  • Review your landscape objectives and provide basic recommendations on plants, culture & care.
  • Additional landscape elements including hardscape, lighting, and water features may be discussed.

The ideas and discussion from this initial consultation are evaluated and allows us to determine the best route for landscape implementation.

2

Site Visit

This initial site visit is an opportunity for our designers to gather site inventory and to take photos.

A site survey and any relevant architectural plans or elevations should be provided by the homeowner. Drawn plans are not prepared during the site visit except in cases where a simple hand-drawn sketch is adequate and can be accomplished within the hour consultation.

The site visit will be used to provide:

Plant Identification

Right Plant for the Right Place

Suggestions on plant arrangement and design

Plant care, pruning & watering

Ideas for "problem areas" in the landscape.

Options to pursue additional design or planning

Landscape Plan

Based on the scope of your landscape project, plan deliverables can include a conceptual design, detailed landscape plan, color plan rendering, AutoCAD drawings and details, and Photoshop realistic images. Once compiled, clients will receive a colorful presentation books that directly relate to each landscape plan, identifying specific landscape plants and design concepts.

Designs and landscape plans are copyrighted and prepared by an experienced landscape designer. They become your property when they are completed and full payment is received.

In addition to the detailed use of plant material, plans can include (but not limited to):

  • Grading & Drainage
  • Retaining or free-standing walls
  • Patios
  • Decks & arbors
  • Lighting
  • Irrigation
  • Berms
  • Siting of home or building on lot
  • Storm water remediation
  • Shoreline/Dune restoration
  • Children’s environments

Our designs and landscape plans are based off the site plan provided by you or survey provided by a registered survey company to ensure accuracy.

The design or landscape plan can be purchased for your personal use or the cost of your design or landscape plan can be reduced or eliminated in the form of a discount on subsequent work performed by R.S. Walsh Landscaping.

It is important to discuss and identify a realistic financial commitment, so we can design appropriate to your budget and meet your landscape expectations.
