Design Development

Initial Meeting

Before an onsite meeting, homeowners

complete our garden questionnaire, a starting point for design exploration. 

Once onsite, we walk your property together, and we offer initial ideas about the garden we can help you create. Following this meeting, Mardi will email a fee proposal for design and project management services.

Conceptual Planning

You will receive carefully selected design options for consideration as we conceptualize your garden space.  We consider foot and car traffic patterns, functionality,  the sun and microclimates, slope and plant material when developing your design.  Mardi will create inspiration boards, such as the one to the left, to help you envision the possibilities.

Final Design

Your final design will include all the details needed to create your garden: a master plan for the entire site, hardscaping specifications, a comprehensive plant list, elevation drawings and construction details.
