In the landscaping industry, the term “Design/Build” refers to the idea
that the same people that design your landscape also install it. You work
with one company form start to finish.
At Brady Landscaping design/build is the process of listening to your
wants, needs, and desires, and turning your dream into reality. We work
with you to create a unique design that satisfies your wishes and
maintains the health and integrity of the environment. Then our
construction crews install your new landscape in a manner that
surpasses your expectations. Our start to finish commitment to
outstanding service and quality ensures your experience is positive from
the initial meeting to final walkthrough.
The design build process begins at the initial meeting as you meet with
our landscape designer to discuss the details of your landscape project.
We start by listening to your goals and visions for your landscape This is
the time for us to get to know each other as well as to discuss any and
all items you would like addressed and included in your future
landscape. What’s your favorite color? How do you like to entertain?
What hobbies do you enjoy? We want to know everything about you so
that your landscape will truly reflect your lifestyle.
Gathering Site Information
The process continues as we gather crucial site information such as site
measurements, photos, grades, status of existing irrigation, views from
within the house, etc. This allows us to put together an accurate base
map. This is a crucial part of the process as everything else is built upon
this initial base map.
After the base map is completed we can begin to sketch out some rough
ideas and develop possible conceptual designs that are functional and
incorporate your needs and wants. These initial designs are rough and
general in nature and are meant to provide a good idea of how the
landscape could be laid out and are then presented to you for your
review. This is the time to discuses any changes or additions you would
like to see and is also a key point in beginning to make some decisions
about how you will invest your budget.
Final Landscape Design
Once we have gone through the revision process and agreed upon a
conceptual design we get into the details of such things as material
textures and colors, plant selections, patterns, etc. It is common to make
one or two revisions before arriving at the final landscape design. The
final landscape design will include all the information needed for our
crews to efficiency and accurately implement your landscape from the
ground up. We typically complete the final landscape design using a CAD
program and even design imaging in some situations. By this point we
will have worked out all the details and will provide you with a final
proposal to install your landscape.
Having invested adequate time at the beginning of the project to develop
a detailed and accurate landscape design, we are ready to begin the
installation phase. We can now engage in an installation contract and
set a start date and a project time line. Upon project commencement you
will be introduced to the project manager as well as the foreman and
crew. Our landscape designer will visit the site regularly and continue
relations with you and with the project manager to assure that all is
going according to plan.
Once the design and installation phase of the project are completed our
project manager will take you on a guided tour of your new landscape
and provide information about how you should care for your new
hardscape and plant material. Your new landscape is timeless and the
development has just begun. As plants mature and vision approaches
reality our maintenance staff will meet the continuing changing needs of
your dynamic outdoor living space as it grows with you and your family
for years to come.
