At Ecogardens, our approach to design is holistic, fulfilling
a client's wishes while remaining sensitive to the preservation
of each site's environmental integrity. We have established a
detailed design program that analyzes the existing site conditions,
and respects the client's desired result and budget. Our Design
Package includes the following:
Initial meeting: Our designer visits your space and introduces
you to the Ecogardens approach to landscaping.
Design Proposal: We submit a design proposal and estimated budget
for your project based upon the initial interview. Here, we welcome
client feedback to ensure our work satisfies all expectations.
Concept Preparation and Review: Once a design proposal is approved,
we prepare concept options for each space. These concepts are
detailed, color renderings for the client's review and consideration.
Final Review: Once review of the concepts is complete, we take
feedback and translate the concept into a final design plan.
This 'Installation Proposal' outlines the construction process
and provides a comprehensive horticultural list.
Installation: Upon final approval of the ‘Installation Proposal’,
we schedule your project for production.
Any project, from complete green roofs down to the smallest rain
garden, is only as good as the materials sourced to build it.
This is why our construction process begins long before installation,
when we hand select the right materials for each unique job.
Our years of expertise with sustainable materials, along with
ongoing research into new technologies, guarantee that our
landscapes are healthy and safe for clients, their families
and friends, and the environment around them.
We work closely with each client to devise a concise installation
schedule. As our team of skilled workers advance through the
job, we keep communication lines open to update clients on our
progress and address any questions that might arise.
Our final step is to tour the landscape with each client to
address questions and potential concerns. This walkthrough provides
an opportunity for us to offer maintenance recommendations and
explain usage guidelines for any features that require clarification.
Only once a client is comfortable with their new landscape do
we consider a job complete.
Every maintenance schedule is custom-tailored to fit a client's
specific needs. With maintenance visits ranging from bi-weekly
to annually, we provide clients with a comprehensive schedule
and pricing to fit their best interests. And, as an incentive
to clients who contract our design and installation services,
Ecogardens is happy to extend our standard one-year warranty
covering plant life.
