Conceptual Design provides landscape options for most outdoor spaces. Typically, these options involve the placement, size, and shape of important landscape features. Pathways, patios, garden beds, compost piles, shade trees, and privacy screening are just a few examples of some of the features that can have a profound impact on the success or failure of a landscape redesign. At PermaDesign, we know that the proper placement and sizing of water harvesting systems, windbreaks, and fruit-tree guilds can make or break the efficiency and productivity of a given landscape.

Master Planning typically includes a minimum of four hours of landscape consultation, which involves an extensive client-interview process. At the end of the planning process, you’ll get a detailed and comprehensive plan that includes drawings, materials lists, and a proposed schedule for the installation of the project. Master plans can also include installation specifications and budget analysis.

In order to save additional money and to improve the quality of the end product, clients will be given the opportunity to take measurements and provide other data, but sometimes local contractors, licensed surveyors, and other data-collection professionals are necessary for the successful completion of the plan.

Installation Specifications can be drawn up for various types of projects, from complex water harvesting systems that store thousands of gallons of water to simple sheet-mulching applications. On some projects, detailed specifications are critical for a successful project, but at other times paid-for specs can be “overkill” and unnecessary. In many cases, locally licensed engineers, architects, landscape architects, or experienced contractors will be called on to approve installation specifications.

Every project has a budget, we work with you to make your project efficient and affordable.Budget Analysis Wherever you live, whatever your lifestyle. No matter what you intend to spend to improve your particular piece of paradise, we offer ecological landscape design for nearly every budget. We can also help you determine your budgetary priorities and give you a sense of the costs involved when you invest in a water-storage system, an irrigation system, a patio that expands your outdoor-living space, a fountain, a planting plan, or various other options.
