Once your design is in place, it’s time to get our hands dirty! Heaps of rich, black earth will replace overgrown shrubbery, and vibrant sod will take the place of a bleak, empty canvas. Landscape construction can be intensive, but rest assured, we consider ourselves artists. We keep disruptive noise and clutter to a minimum so the process is as seamless as possible.
There are two key components to construction of your new space, each offering a very personal opportunity for creativity:
Softscapes are the natural pieces such as shrubbery, trees, perennials, grass, and mulch. They set the tone for your space and infuse it with natural beauty. When we talk about the timeline for your landscape design, we take the long term approach with softscapes, giving trees and shrubs time to mature, flowers time to bloom, and you the pleasure of being able to see it all come to life through the varied stages of growth.
Examples of Softscapes:
As you can guess, hardscapes include stonework and pathways, fencing, decks, fireplaces, outdoor rooms, lighting, and water features. If softscapes are the beauty, hardscapes are the brawn. They’re the pieces that bring function to your backyard and are easier to swap out as time, trends and budgets evolve.
Our natural philosophy and long-term outlook influence every landscape construction decision, from effective drainage to green waste management.
