The Process

Our proven process from concept to completion

Our mission is to seamlessly transform your outdoor space according to your vision, priorities, and budget wrapped with an amazing experience.

Step 1

Design Initiation

Before every build begins, we require a custom design crafted by our team. This allows you to visualize your options before committing to the build. Begin by completing the Design Inquiry form and you can expect an outreach from a team member shortly after. To facilitate the design process, please prepare your wish list, budgetary limitations, and priorities in advance.

Step 2

Discovery Consultation

Our initial meeting will take place over a virtual ZOOM call. This interaction allows us to understand your project better, answer any questions, and set design pricing expectations. If you would like to proceed, we will arrange a site visit for us to begin your design measurements.

Step 3

Evaluation  & Measurement

Our expert team will visit your site to collect the design payment and begin measurements for the design. This meeting is an ideal opportunity to discuss budget expectations. Based on the information shared, we will offer a rough estimate of the project. During the on-site, our team can provide alternative options if the ballpark estimate exceeds your budget, such as phased implementation, prioritizing elements, flexible material choices, or financing options.

Step 4

Design Presentation

Within 2-3 weeks, we will prepare and share the initial design draft and estimate pricing to match, allowing time for your review. These design review calls are all hosted over virtually ZOOM calls. Please note that this first design version may exceed your budget, in order to show you what is possible. Subsequent revisions will allow you to adjust the design towards your budget.

Step 5

Design Proposal

Upon finalizing your design, we will present an official proposal detailing the pricing, terms and conditions, and warranty provisions.

Step 6

Construction & Transformation

Upon agreement sign-off, we will collect the deposit and secure your project in our schedule. Should the project necessitate permits or engineering tasks, we will guide you through the next steps.

How to prepare

Preparing for your outdoor living build

Identify Your All-In Budget

It's common the complete wish list goes above the budget. Whether it's financing or a phased approach, we're flexible and here to give recommendations along the way

Your Vision, Vibe and Style

Gather and share inspiration photos when we reach the design stage together. Whether it's web images or a shareable Pinterest board, having a consensus on what you envision your dream space to be really allows the design phase to flow quite smoothly

Prioritize Your Wish List

The most important facet when approaching a design is to identify your wish list of features by priority. This will greatly impact the design direction when given budget parameters
