Our 5-Step Landscape Design Program

At Pacific Outdoor Living we take a different approach to design.
We get the budget worked out BEFORE we spend your valuable time and resources committing to a design.

We make it EASY with our exclusive 5-Step Process:

Step 1:

The Analysis – First, we come out to your house to do a complete measurement of all the existing features. We map out utility locations, spot elevations, so we can evaluate where levels need to change and look for potential drainage issues. In this first step, you end up with a complete map of your property that you can use for any projects down the road. The cost for this is typically $350* for most homes Quite a value!!

Step 2:

Initial Consultation – Now that the site plan is ready, we set a consultation in our office, with our Design Team Lead. We’ll discuss your needs and priorities, review design ideas and by the end of the meeting you’ll have a rough sketch of your project along with a very good idea what the project may cost. If the proposed direction and budget works for you, we then engage in a Landscape Design Agreement and we’ll assign one of our Designers that’s right for your project. The typical fee is $1350 for plans but can range from $300 and up to $3000, depending on scope of work

Step 3:

Conceptual Meeting – Within a week or two, the first conceptual meeting is held at the office. Your Designer will present the plans based off the initial concepts from the first meeting. At this point you get to review the design, pick out materials, review a more accurate ballpark of your project and discuss any revisions revisions, the Designer embarks on getting everything worked out for the final plan.


Step 4:

Final Plan Meeting – Now, we meet one last time in the office and go over the final 3D plans. At this point, the design should have been modified to your preferences and the estimate finalized. Of course, if additional revisions are needed, we’ll keep working to make it right. It’s important that you love the plan at a budget that works for you.

Step 5:

The Construction – At this point, plans are approved, contracts are completed, and we start the fun part: The Work! The Designer will have completed working drawings, that the crew can use to efficiently install your dream landscape. You’ll be assigned to a Job Coordinator as your single point of contact who will facilitate any construction concerns moving forward. With our friendly, dedicated crews, we’ll make sure your project is a success!
