Are you considering a landscape design in Santa Fe? EcoScapes of Santa Fe staffs a landscape architect and designers to develop ecologically-sound landscape plans based on your needs and personal aesthetics. EcoScapes designs landscapes for a wide range of client needs - from a simple planting scheme to full-scale AutoCad drawings, which may include hardscapes, plants and flowers, irrigation, and stormwater 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, the 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, we give thought to the context of the property, such as the 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 for a two-week turnaround on all estimates after the design is approved. As your design and installation near completion, we provide guidance and recommendations for a maintenance company to assume responsibility after the warranty period passes.
Had a wonderful experience with EcoScapes! Began last fall with the landscape designer drawing up a master plan for our yard. The landscape designer 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!
