Design services to meet your needs

What do you see when you look out your window — what do you envision? Lawn Lad brings those ideas to life in your outdoor space. Every landscape has potential, and no project is too big or small for our crews. Whether you want to expand a patio space, build a fire pit, install a pond or reconfigure your landscape beds, our designers and landscape architect will collaborate with you to develop a workable plan. Sometimes, that plan is a cocktail napkin sketch of where to place new plant material. We turn around projects like this on a dime. Other times, a carefully rendered blueprint with phase projects may take several years to complete. We want to take projects at your speed—and develop designs on your terms.

We take a design/build approach to transforming your landscape. That allows us to begin planning installation and site development work while finishing touches to the final plan are put in place, taking you from concept to completed installation sooner.

Any design and installation project begins with a free, no obligation pre-project consultation to determine the scope, feasibility and action steps for your landscape project.

We make it easy to get started by offering several formats for starting your design. We balance your decision-making style with the budget, scope and complexity of the project to determine what format is best.

Design Services

Design Approach

Primary design services are completed in one or two meetings. We’ll paint bed lines and place flags to help you visualize where plants and features will go. Some off-site research may be required.

Time

Accelerated and simplified process to take you from concept to installation as quickly as possible.This may require several days or up to two weeks.

Results

We explore solutions to your challenges, then outline broad concepts, and define space, materials andplant lists. We submit a contract/bid for the proposed project and suggest low-cost alternative to test ideas.

Is This for Me?

Ideal for smaller projects that require minimal design work.

Limitations

Does not include property survey, scaled plans or drawings, permits, grade/site evaluations, in-depth study of functionality.

Design Approach

Initial meeting and site visits to investigate your priorities and needs. We’ll test several options prior to presenting a concept and preliminary plan.

Time

Several weeks to a month or two depending on scope, city involvement in zoning and planning, level of detail, and number of revisions to initial concept.

Results

We sketch out a single concept or measured drawing (preliminary, working plan), including a material and plant list and a contract/bid for proposed project. Depending on the scope of the project, we can offer a moderate-cost design or a full-feature plan that outlines all details so you can be confident moving forward that there is a solid plan in place.

Is This for Me?

Mid-sized projects with multiple elements that have detail that requires sketches or drawings to clearly define scope of project. Drawings assist owner with decision making process to visualize concept.

Limitations

Provides limited concept options, one or two drawings, e concepts, master plans.

Design Approach

We investigate, collect, study and assess information regarding your lifestyle, priorities, and needs. Several initial meetings will test ideas and concepts developed from measured drawings. After selection of concept, preliminary plans with detail are reviewed. Customer feedback and involvement are encouraged at every step of plan development.

Time

One month minimum and continuing depending on scope, level of detail, number of revisions to concepts/plans, and city involvement for zoning and planning.

Results

Multiple concepts, cost estimates, measured drawings (preliminary, final, working, irrigation/lighting plan, and rendered master plans), plant list, renderings, contract/bid for proposed project. Cost depends on scope and scale of project, number of revisions to concepts and plans. Detailed final plans that have been scrutinized resulting in confidence that the final project will meet expectations for this significant landscape investment.

Is This for Me?

Best for significant projects with detail, larger scope, and longer installation requirements. Customer involvement and feedback provides best results.

Limitations

Time to develop ideas and concepts that provide unique solutions to the challenges at hand.
