It's often true that "getting started is the hardest part" of any task. Landscaping Projects are no different! There are so many new ideas, materials, and products to consider and it can be hard to know where to start. In addition, its hard to commit hard earned money without a good idea of how things will turn out.
LA Studio has built a business on re-imagining spaces in new and creative ways. We can help you to weigh alternatives, offer fresh design ideas, and look at your landscaping project from every angle. Then, we can help you to settle on a concept and can then create all the detailed drawings needed to turn that concept into reality!
Here's the process we like to follow:
Every landscape design starts with an open discussion. What are your project goals, needs, and wants? Do you have a budget in mind? How will the project area be used? We like to start the process with questions like these as a means to serving you better!
After an initial meeting, a visit to your project site follows. We photograph, measure and shoot elevations at key points. We take this information to create a computer base of existing site conditions for reference during the concept development stage and for use in creating construction drawings.
During this landscape design phase, our design team works through different concept ideas. We work behind the scenes to zero in on and refine concepts that we can take to you for your input. 3D concept work is often used as well, so that different ideas can be better pictured.
After going through these first concepts with you, we work to make any needed revisions, identify and source project materials, and move towards finalizing the conceptual landscape plan.
In this landscape design phase, we create all the detailed plans needed to bid, build, and, if applicable, gain city-permitting for construction.
With building plans in hand, the project is bid out and construction begins. LA Studio provides oversight to insure that work is done properly, issues resolved, and timelines followed.
