If you live in Northern Virginia, Washington DC or Maryland, then you know summers coming. There is no better time than now to start your landscaping project. A pool makes any Gainesville, Virginia home a sanctuary from the hot sun. To get started, begin by gathering your ideas by putting together photos of the items on your “wish list”. Do you like a Contemporary or Eclectic or Asian or Traditional style? Would you like more patio space or a deck to accommodate at least 20 guests? Would you like a swimming pool, or a pavilion, an outdoor kitchen, or a fire pit for friends and family gatherings? This is the first step in the landscape design process.
In the second step, contact a landscape designer to meet with them at your home to discuss your project. Each project begins with a dialog between designer and client. One important factor is having an open dialog with the designer and share your ideas and vision. Good communication will help to transform them into a functional and cohesive design. If you chose Land & Water Design, we are abiding and keeping the social distancing during our visit.
Next step, we will visit your property to gather the measurements and begin the design. A landscape architect can enter all the measurements and grades into a CAD program. From here the design process begins. Taking all the items on your wish-list, the initial landscape design is a layout of the flow of space. We use architecture elements to complement the surrounding architecture. Every great landscape design often comes with challenges; we have the problem-solving experience. Let’s transform your landscape into a reflection of your lifestyle. Bringing your vision to reality. We are engaging our clients through video meetings to discuss and share the designs.
Now together we discuss the range of costs to build your project. You set the budget for your outdoor living project. Many clients may do the project in phases, others choose to do the complete project in one phase. If you chose to build in phases you start prioritizing what is most important to you. We can help you plan the elements to include in each phase from our construction knowledge.
Get your designs started now so you will be able to start enjoying your outdoor living space. With many families spending most of their time at home this is a great time to build a fun place to spend time outdoors. We are creating designs now to beginning construction this summer. We work with you throughout the design and installation process. Again the crews will be wearing masks and abiding by the CDC & State regulations to keep everyone safe.
