The EcoScapes design team commits to generate ecologically sound landscapes, suited to clients’ needs and personal aesthetic. EcoScapes can accommodate a range of client needs, ranging from a simple planting scheme to full-scale AutoCad drawings, which may include Hardscape, Planting, Irrigation, and Storm water catchment plans.
THE LANDSCAPE DESIGN PROCESS
Interview & Initial Site Visit: The process starts with an in-depth interview and discussion with the client to understand desired use of the space, special planting considerations, client’s overall vision and budget.
Site Analysis: This includes the analysis of soil, local topography, predominant wind direction, solar orientation, observation of erosion patterns, roof runoff and architectural style of adjacent buildings. Additionally, context of the property, such as, site, cultural and natural history of the area.
Design Process: After initial analysis, a first draft is submitted and then alternatives are presented and discussed with the client. Once the final design has been accepted by the client, an estimate can be formulated.
Estimate: We aim to have a two-week turnaround on all estimates after the design is approved. As a design and installation nears completion, we provide guidance on maintenance and irrigation practices to secure the ultimate health of the landscape.
Had a wonderful experience with EcoScapes! Began last fall with the landscape designer, Peggy, drawing up a master plan for our yard. She is talented, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. We then worked with Michael and his team to construct a large paverstone patio, irrigation installation, and moss rock walls, planting beds, and steps. They were hardworking and reliable and the work looks great. They have come immediately out to fix a couple small aesthetic issues. We look forward to working with them this spring for all of our plantings!
