We view it as an honour and privilege to be your design and build partner in the development of your unique project. Whether complex or straightforward, you can count on us to always put our hearts and minds into every aspect of the work we do.
Our approach to design is to develop each project from initial concept to final master plan. We take into account the site’s architectural elements and your wish list. We then implement the plan with our industry’s best practices to ensure your project fits your unique lifestyle. We research and review Your City bi-laws with you so – this way there are no surprises once construction begins.
Our Design Philosophy
Incorporating existing elements with classically balanced structural elements is where the magic happens.
We take our cues from surrounding architecture and landscapes and then creatively blend in the new projects elements. Natural stone terraces and walls combined with exciting wooden structures gives your backyard form. A diverse and unique plant selection brings it to life.
Our ultimate goal for each and every project is to create spaces that first and foremost feel natural to the owner and visitors alike. Design never feels forced but rather compliments the spirit of the space.
Our Design Process
Our design process always involves taking the time to become familiar with the space and the vibe you’re after.
Once we understand the space we begin to thoroughly measure the site. We establish the elevations of the site using the latest in digital surveying technology – a very critical aspect of each landscape project since slope and drainage are paramount to proper water management.
Upon our return to the office, we are then able to plot the property on our CAD-based design program. After that, the magic of the design process begins.
Our Design Team can manage any scale of project ranging from smaller courtyards and tight urban spaces to larger more complex Swimming Pool and Outdoor Living Space projects involving complex mechanical systems, permits, and specialized trades.
We Design and specify the project before it goes out to tender. Always ensuring that the desired effect and finishes are clearly defined in the project specifications. Together with you, we explain the options and pros + cons of various methods of construction including the financial aspects of all the elements of your project. Often less expensive items have long term costs that we outline with you – always honest and transparent.
