To ensure consistent quality for all our projects, we have developed a tried and true 10-step design process. Whether you’re looking for a large backyard restoration or a small and welcoming front walkway, our design process steps will ensure your satisfaction.
1. Initial Consultation
Following your email or call we respond by phone usually within 2-3 business days. Our conversation will uncover whether or not we are a good fit for your request. Due to high demand we may have to decline, due to the scope of the project, location, or budget. If we are not a good fit we will do our best to refer you to a company that can help you.
2. Agree on Design
If we are a good fit, a rough budget for a design will be discussed. We can also work from a plan you may have already from a landscape professional.
3. Site Concept
We start with a concept that is emailed in combination with a phone conversation to make sure that we are on the same page.
Based on our conversation and your feed back, we then, make modifications or changes to the plan to meet your satisfaction.
Once we have a concept you are happy with, we give a rough budget.
6. Final Planning
If the construction budget and design are in line, then we proceed with a final plan and exact price.
7. On-Site Review
Presentation: If possible we meet in person to go over the final plan and quote. At this point, we review our construction practices to ensure your project will stand the test of time.
Upon signing the contract and payment terms that have been agreed on, a timeline for installation will be given.
We build and manage the installation of your new landscape, to your satisfaction ready for you to enjoy for years to come.
10. Future Care
Following the installation of your dream landscape, Gardens By Ash is here to keep your gardens looking fresh year after year.
“Greg Hogan listened to my vision and prepared 2 similar designs in 2 different price ranges. The construction started within 2 weeks, as promised and was finished in 2 weeks, as promised. His crew were punctual, knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and were at all times professional. Each crew member was a craftsman within his own specialty. They tidied up the yard at the end of every day leaving as little mess as possible, given the magnitude of the project. The attention to detail was marvelous. The capping stones and edge stones were meticulously coped to fit into every nook and cranny of the decorative rocks that were positioned at the corners and at the edges of the flower beds.
I am so happy that Greg and his crew were recommended to me and I would confidently pass along the recommendation to whoever is looking. I was asking for a sidewalk, a retaining wall and a driveway but I finished up with a spectacular work of art right at my front door. If it were possible I would give this outstanding company a 12 out of 10.” – Kathie G., Aurora
