What Is Your Design Process?
Our experienced designers meet with the client and establish the details of what their vision really is. Next, our team will filter this vision through our specialized knowledge of the ins and outs of how similar projects have happened, suggest amendments, and solve budgetary and design concerns. We then produce a final design by working with both the client and the contractors who will be finishing the job.
What Is Your Landscaping Process?
We have a network of contractors and other specialists who will do an in-person assessment to give an accurate estimate and run any tests that need to be run before we start. A timeframe will be given to the client, so they can plan around having people working on their residential or commercial property. Then the job gets done, staying in close communication with the client the whole time!
Why Should I Work with a Landscape Designer?
Our clients constantly amaze us with the beautiful and functional projects they propose to our designers and contractors. The benefit of working with a landscape designer is that the full scope of a project can be better understood by both the client and the contractors working on the project. This usually leads to a project that goes off more smoothly, and also stays carefully within budget.
Do You Offer Aftercare Maintenance?
Allen's Landscaping provides comprehensive aftercare instructions to all our clients and can schedule short-term or long-term aftercare and other maintenance projects.
What Are Softscapes and Hardscapes?
Softscapes are things like lawns, soft pathways, and any other area that isn’t taken up by tall plant growth or isn’t paved. A hardscape is a brick, slate, concrete, or other hard surface that has an aesthetic or functional purpose.
