Landscape Site Planning

A major element of any landscaping project is site planning. Site planning refers to organizing and configuring the design process of the landscape by the architect. The first step in landscape site planning is to analyze and assess the potential of a site for development. The entire landscape area is looked at to identify and locate the areas that are not suited for development such as steep slopes or floodplain and the areas that are suited for development. The feasibility of landscape features such as decks, terraces, steps, walls, fountains, pools and planting areas are carefully studied and mapped. In order to achieve the above, your Landscape Architect will consider among many factors such as usability, enjoyment, safety, solar exposure, privacy and aesthetics.

Garden Design

A lush green yard is dependent on its location inside your Seattle yard. In the planning and architect mapping stage, it is crucial to select the area with the best landscape soil quality, as well as the area that remains in the sun the longest. Sun exposure is a key factor for your landscape, as plants require uninterrupted sunlight to nurture and bloom.  While most plants bloom in sunlight, there are plants which bloom in the shade, so take that into consideration before selecting plants for your landscape.  Obviously, water supply is vital for a garden therefore, proper planning is essential. Your Landscape Architect has a vast experience along unparalleled knowledge of the entire garden design process to ensure your garden is a stunning masterpiece.

Illustrative Drawings

At the beginning of every project, you will be presented with detailed hand drawings in order for you to clearly see and envision what your landscape will look like once the new proposed design is completed. These drawings will be the map upon which to add changes and design your dream landscape. The landscape drawings will take into consideration and account not only your specific requirements based on the very features you wish to have added to your landscape but also the particular physical features and potential limitations of the land to work with.
