The process to develop landscaping with distinction at your home is very simple! Once you call us, we will begin the process that consists of two simple steps: the design consultation and the design development.
First of all, we will meet with you at your home to discuss your landscape dreams and needs. We will show you photographs of what has been developed at other homes throughout metro Atlanta. Then, we carefully listen to what is important to you! As you share with us, we will provide the inspiration of many years of landscape experience to begin to develop a custom landscape with distinction for your home.
Landscaping is such an important element to the enjoyment and value of one of your major investments, your home! Therefore, we will work closely with you to develop a custom landscape that will compliment the beauty and style of your home.
After the Design Consultation meeting, we will develop a plan for the landscape development. Several years of landscape experience is incorporated into every design developed by Sketch-A-Scape. Considerable thought is given to every landscape design to ensure creativity, distinction and function!
One of the unique elements offered by Sketch-A-Scape during the Design Devellopment is a visit to a local nursery. This introduces our customers to plants that they possibly have never seen before as well as let's them be very much a part of the landscape development of their home.
Once the design has been prepared, we will arrange to meet with you to review the plan. During this meeting, we will help you to visualize the distinctive landscaping to fulfill your landscape dreams and needs!
A STATEMENT ON LANDSCAPE DESIGN
The success of every landscape initially
rests entirely on its design!
A thorough, well-thought-out evaluation of the home and its setting as it relates to the desires of the homeowner is extremely important to creating a distinctive landscape that can be enjoyed for years to come. Some of the many factors to be considered are…
What unique elements can be added to the landscape of the home to promote distinction? We are not interested in providing you with what others have. We want to help you to set the standard with unique distinction!
Where are the viewing focal points from inside the house so that the landscaping can be enjoyed year round from inside the house as well as outside?
What about privacy from the view of others and screening out unwanted views?
Would a waterfeature fit into the landscape development of the house?
Which plants will best suit the site?
Plant selection is critical to the long-term success of every landscape! Shade loving plants installed in full sun will ultimately decline and look unattractive and will possibly even die in that environment. Fast growing plants installed in small areas will require constant pruning to maintain scale with the area where they are planted. This creates a high maintenance situation that could have been avoided with proper planning.
Plants are living organisms that require
thoughtful consideration concerning where they live
to provide the homeowner with optimum performance from each plant!
It breaks the heart of every conscientious landscaper to see plants planted in the wrong place. And homeowners are disappointed at the loss of their time and investment when they see their plants decline or die many times not realizing that the plant decline could have been avoided with proper planning.
Many years of tested landscape experience and research is incorporated into every landscape plan developed by Sketch-A-Scape. Ongoing research of understanding the appropriate environment for each plant and how that benefits each customer in their specific landscape need is a never-ending process of development at Sketch-A-Scape. This provides incalculable value to each customer's particular need.
