Design Process

We will meet with you at your home to discuss your vision, property limitations, budget and any current issues you may be having. Stephen Costalos, the co-owner, in collaboration with Kara Muscarella, our landscape architect, will conduct a thorough site analysis of your property to review the existing plants, trees, structures, topography, soil conditions, sight lines and measurements.

We will work with you to create a scaled drawing that reflects our collective ideas.

Once your vision is in place on the landscape plan, we often include inspirational photos, material samples, and plant samples. We’ll also take opportunities to bring ecologically sensitive solutions to the plan. Once the plan and its possible revisions are complete, we will prepare a specific proposal for its skillful installation.

Build Process

Our skilled in-house installation team and allied tradesmen work with our designers to transform your landscape plan into reality. We will work to ensure that your plan is executed on time and on budget. Regardless of the size of your project, our attention to detail and our commitment to quality remain constant.
