The Site Analysis Program or SA for short, which gives you an in-depth plan of your property right from the start. We send one of our measurers to survey your outdoor space. We take complete measurements and gather all the necessary data, including elevations, site levels, potential drainage issues, how far from the property line we can build, pressure, gas lines, set backs and more. From there, the info is sent to our CAD department to make a base plan. A base plan includes a digital drawing as well as a large two-dimensional printout of the property and all its measurements.
Prices of a site analysis can very depending on your home size but will ultimately save you time.Money and the headache that is associated with untrustworthy quotes. We learn everything we need to know about your property, so there are no surprises during the design, or worse the construction phase of the project.And if for whatever reason you decide not to work with us you can take your site analysis to use at another design/build firm.
After the completion of the Site Analysis, the second phase of our three-step process starts with signing a design agreement. We take the information we’ve gathered so far, along with the budget you’ve given us, and begin with the development of a complete concept. We also create a preliminary 3D rendering of your house and incorporate all the new features that we have designed into your yard. During this meeting, we will also nail down all the material selections you’d like to make.
At this point, with the layout done, materials chosen, and planting picked out - all while keeping within your budget – we are ready to create the final design in a comprehensive, 3D rendering, which will give you a highly accurate representation of what the final product will look like.
This brings us to the final design meeting where we will review all the plans in detail, making sure that all requested items are on the contract. You will leave your final design meeting feeling confident you’ve made the right choice in entrusting us with your home improvement project.
Once we have the necessary permits for your job, or if no permits are needed, we schedule the pre-construction meeting with your designer. In this meeting, we review in detail everything that's on your plan. It's vital that the customer understands exactly what is being built and have all their questions answered.
From there, it's time to turn the project over to the construction division. This starts with a job walk with your designer and your job supervisor. In the job walk, we walk your outdoor space, marking out what's going be removed and where certain items are going be built to make absolutely sure that once it's laid out in your backyard you can visualize the final completed project.
Construction begins with grading, demolition and putting all the infrastructure in place - drain lines, power lines, gas lines, and if there's a pool, the excavation for the pool itself.
All the hardscape elements go in next, and then after that it's all the irrigation and planting.
We also get all the needed inspections completed as we go through the project.
At the end of the process, you have the outdoor project that you have envisioned.

“We wanted a backyard Oasis, and we got that and more. Terrific team, very responsive. They are arguably not the cheapest but they are easily the best. Spending a little more was worth it in this case."
“These guys are professionals– really. They were amazingly clean, precise and accurate. The crew showed up on time and got down to business. My neighbors were amazed and have stopped by to ask for their contact information. It is obvious they take a great deal of pride in what they do. I will use this company again for sure. Looking forward to working with them again."

I've been thinking about a patio for years. The backyard is long and narrow so getting the design right was a challenge. Craig helped me come up with a great design and was very good at listening. Onecimo and Jorge were very professional leading the project. They were neat, worked quickly and finished on time. At the the end of the project they walked me through the care and maintenance
