Although every GTA Landscaping client and project is unique, each follow a pattern. Below is a breakdown of the general design and build process.
STEP I: CONSULTATION
An estimator/landscape designer will meet the client to review the client’s expectations and objectives for the outdoor space. A preliminary design and/or project proposal outline will be discussed.
STEP II: DESIGN PROPOSAL
* If you do not require a design proposal, please skip to STEP IV.
During this meeting, the landscape designer will meet the client at the project site to conduct an analysis of the site and further discuss the client’s objectives. A rough sketch of the design with projected project timeline will be provided. A 50% deposit for design will be collected, before moving forward to the next stage.
STEP III: FINAL DESIGN
It’s now time to review the final design and drawings. Working with the client, a landscape designer will answer questions and make adjustments to the design elements and suggested materials to ensure the client is satisfied with the creative concept.
STEP IV: PROJECT PROPOSAL
After providing the client with a detailed quote, the landscape designer will go over the contract, timeline and construction details. Pending the client’s approval, the process will begin after the client provides a 20% deposit.
STEP V: CONSTRUCTION PLANNING & INSTALLATION
During this stage, our team will gather all materials, as well as required permits and documentation necessary to begin the build process. Throughout this process and the building stage, our staff will maintain regular communication with the client in order to stay updated with scheduling details and work progress.
STEP VI: PROJECT ASSESSMENT & COMPLETION
Once the project is completed, a GTA Landscaping representative will meet with the client for a final walk-through of the project site. Our goal is to provide 100% satisfaction. During this meeting, we will review all the elements of the project, address remaining questions and ensure that the client’s expectations are adequately met.
