We’ll begin your project with a personal in-home consultation, performed by one of our expert landscape designers. The objective of our initial consultation is to understand what you are envisioning and your unique goals for your project. At this meeting, we’ll determine whether your landscape project will require a formal design, and we’ll discuss your scope of work, project budget, and beyond. We’ll also happily answer any questions you may have about our company, our capabilities, and our plan for meeting your goals.
If we’ve determined that design work is required, the design phase will be initiated by a formal design agreement and a deposit. We’ll present you with a description of all of the landscape and hardscape elements we’re planning to include in your project. Once you’ve accepted and signed your design agreement, we will begin the design phase.
Once we initiate your project’s design phase, we’ll perform the following:
Detailed Site Analysis, Preparation of Base Maps, Development of Conceptual Plans, Engineering Plans, Details, 3D Models, & Elevations.
Once we have completed all of your project’s design work and planning, the Rivers team will provide you with a comprehensive written proposal detailing all of your project’s included scope of work and specified materials. As you review your proposal, we’ll be pleased to answer any of your questions and make any adjustments needed to ensure your vision will be realized and all of your goals will be met. The installation phase of your project will be scheduled right after you’ve approved your proposal and submitted a deposit to us.
Once we have received your signed proposal and deposit, our production team will schedule your project, obtain any necessary permits, and order all of the materials we’ll need.
Before we begin work, our team will conduct a detailed preconstruction meeting on your site, as required, including the designer and all production managers who will be involved in your project. This preconstruction meeting will help ensure the entire construction process runs smoothly and efficiently from start to completion.
We then commence work on your project, as we’ve laid out in our scheduling. While we’re installing your new landscape project, our friendly, uniformed installation professionals will show the utmost respect for your home, your property, and your neighbors. We always arrive to perform the day’s work as efficiently and quietly as possible and leave your property looking clean and organized for the next day’s work.
