Our Landscape Services – Residential landscape designs

Our creations begin with the aspirations of our clients. We value the collaborative relationships that develop through the evolution of the project and enjoy using our expertise to make our clients’ dreams become a reality.
Design Works is proud of our ability to deliver the unique combination of design and landscape construction services. From consultation and design, plant and patio installation, to project administration we are there every step of the way, eliminating guesswork and creating successful projects.
At the convenience of our clients we will conduct a meeting on site, free of charge, to gain a thorough understanding of the project intent. With your vision and our expertise, an organized and inspiring plan will begin to take shape.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and a client questionnaire will be emailed to you to help evoke ideas prior to our initial consultation.
Assessment will involve collecting detailed data about the physical characteristics of your garden landscape, and/or landscape space. We will gather available site plans of your property and/or complete a site survey to understand site opportunities and constraints. A site assessment assists in making informed decisions and eliminates the need for unnecessary change and costs in the built landscape.
Our designers will take your visions and develop a thoughtful and creative conceptual plan for the specific area of your property. With your feedback, a landscape master plan will be completed. A master plan is an invaluable tool that not only helps clarify your landscape goals but also acts as a guide to efficiently construct outdoor spaces, patios, walkways, walls and plantings in your landscape space.

- A landscape lighting plan will contain the location and type of lights

Our landscape plans are digitally rendered with the use of AutoCAD and Photoshop to aid in communicating a realistic representation of your landscape. Photographs of plant material will be included on the plan. Additionally, professional artist hand sketches or digital perspectives, created by the use of SketchUp, may be performed in order to visualize the design in an enhanced medium.
Each component of the landscape plan will be included in a specification sheet that itemizes the material needed along with the square and linear footages of each. A project budget will be available prior to construction.
Your vision begins to take shape as Design Works carefully constructs the components of the landscape plan. With 10+ years of construction experience, we understand that a constructed project goes beyond aesthetics. Whether its a garden patio, retaining wall or walkway, we build projects to last throughout the years.
Attention to detail is never overlooked. Your project will be carefully managed by owner, Jim DiNovo, to assure that your project is upheld to the original design intent.
At Design Works, we are confident that you will be very satisfied with the result and we look forward to working with you to help enhance the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces for many years to come.
