Process

Design

Vision before precision.

Your gardens are a reflection of you. Your values, your background, your interests, your home and retreat – these are the key elements we dig into before we start any design. Your design is well planned when we get into your pores and absorb your input, lifestyle, architecture, style, needs and surroundings. Then we help steer vision and budgets so we can prepare a Design Brief that sets a framework before art is put to canvas.

Our landscape design process is a relationship-building medium that relies on the formation of trust. We understand the nuances of creating real spaces and engaging you, the one who uses them - to reflect your story.

From start to art.

Landmark projects look different because of ingenuity, but also because of our design methodology. In our initial “Blue-Sky” phase, we round-table ideas and artistically hand-sketch a vision with an underlay of tangible metrics and a thorough site inventory.

We are passionate about concept development and don’t let some computer program dictate or present your initial ideas. It’s a winning proposition. After all, this is about creating artful and inspiring landscapes.

From art to cart.

Our design process includes collaborative meetings with you and our Design Manager, Landscape Architect and Construction experts. We like to work with your Architect and Builder to share ideas and forecast any adjustments inclœuding site design, grading & drainage, tree management, foundation lines and materials.

From perspective sketches through to our custom 3D renderings we help get you “into your landscape” in order to fully envision the design. When developing a Master plan, we go beyond. We also counsel in areas like materials, furniture, urns, garden enhancement and landscape lighting. Following any feedback from our construction team and horticulturists, we craft a precise set of Construction drawings followed by a tailored Planting Plan in order to prepare a detailed cost Estimate.

Construction

It’s a craft. Not a job.

The Landmark Group has passion for natural beauty and engineering with character. That passion finds expression in thoughtful outdoor spaces that reflect your values and ideas.

But passion and beauty can be eclipsed by cut corners, shoddy workmanship, delayed schedules and cost overruns. To eliminate uncertainty and risk, we proudly back our service with a 3-year, no questions asked, FULL warranty. Do you know of another industry promise like that?
