The professionals at Distinctive Exteriors believe that a great landscaping project begins with proper planning. We pride ourselves on creating aesthetic and functional landscapes that are customized to fit the specific needs and style of the client.
GETTING STARTED – “THE PROCESS”
Set Your Goals
Do you have goals for your project? Do you have a budget? These elements are vital, so that you create balance between time / financial investment and achieving your goals.
Any landscape or exterior project can seem like an overwhelmingly large task to undertake, simply because it’s a lot more involved than you might have time for. This is where Distinctive Exteriors can help. Allow us to walk you through the entire landscape process from start to finish. Call now at (702) 385-4555 to begin the process.
The best way to begin the process is a little homework of your own. We ask each client to write up a “wish list”, this includes both the things you would love to see in your design and also things you would not like to see. Write down everything that you can think of, it doesn’t matter how ambitious it seems, what you think it may cost, or even if ideas seem out of place. This doesn’t need to be all in written form, they can also be pictures and physical product samples.
Our designers will meet with you to discuss your wish list, a budget, inspect the site and photo document the existing conditions. We will also discuss the ideas on your wish list, some of our basic design ideas, and what ideas might give you the best value for your dollar. We try to create an understanding of your expectations in relation to your wish list and budgets, creating an optimum balance between the two. At this point we will move to the Design phase of your project.
Design, Estimating and Contracts
If you have provided us with an overall budget we will then begin a conceptual design based on the consultation. This process can take anywhere from a couple of days to weeks for more complex design projects. We always believe that great design is something that cannot be rushed or ignored, so we always ask for your patience. Once the final concept plan is developed we will produce a contract price based on the ideas presented in the design and scope of work
Contract Agreement and Final Planning
Once we develop and agree upon a final contract price our designer will produce a final construction plan for your approval. At this stage it is vital for us that our clients fully understand the plans and scope of work. Once we can agree and sign off on a final plan we will move to the construction phase.
We believe that communication is the key to any project, especially during the construction phase. Our team is constantly proactive with our communication to each client throughout the construction process. We take great care to ensure that each step in the construction phase is done with pride and done with the highest of standards.
Once your landscaping project is complete, an official walk through is arranged. Plant material care, lawn care, irrigation, hardscape care, water feature management, lighting care and all other items are thoroughly discussed to ensure your project is maintained and cared for with knowledge and confidence. We are also happy to address any questions or concerns that need discussion.
