You’ve been thinking about it for a while, and now you’re ready to begin your landscape design project. We begin every project with an initial design meeting which is free of charge. This is the very first stage of your new construction project. Once we select a time and date to meet, we determine the best way to get together. Given the circumstances of today’s world we offer the option of conducting this initial meeting remotely via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype. This meeting is most beneficial to both the client and the designer(s) if it is conducted in person at the project site.

We truly enjoy this part of the process. We get to learn about YOU. Getting your project started on the right foot is of the utmost importance to us. We love meeting our new clients and we love taking on all sorts of projects, big or small. This first meeting is how we get to know you, your project, your goals for the project, and your space. And you also get to know us— who we are, what we do, and why we would be the best fit for your needs. We listen to your ideas and understand what your goals are; whether it is an entertainment space for larger gatherings or something more intimate for just you and your family. We convey our thoughts and ideas to you, some of which you may have not considered before, and all of our creative engines begin to fire on all cylinders.

Full disclosure and complete honesty are the norm from our designers here at Redbud. While walking the site and chatting about your upcoming project you will hear our honest opinion about certain design aspects and whether or not we will be able to reach your goals. If we think there is a potential hurdle, or two, or six, we will let you know. If we can’t make something happen we will also let you know that too. We will propose potential alternative solutions to achieve a similar outcome. We will not promise you something that we don’t think is feasible. That only creates headaches for everyone.

In today’s world, the client-contractor relationship is regarded with some skepticism. We love eliminating this skepticism from the equation right from the get-go. At Redbud, we do everything in our power to ensure that you are exhilarated with the finished product. We love to make our clients happy and create unique, beautiful, practical, and functional landscapes in the process. This initial meeting is where the happiness and excitement begins on both sides. We look forward to producing the design and then managing the installation of your project.

Stay tuned for our next post explaining the design rounds…
