The Design and Construction Process
Shoplick Landscape Architecture tailors its services to best respond to each project’s unique needs and budget. We always start our relationship with our clients by carefully listening to their thoughts, goals, and desires. Typically we visit your property and examine surveys to understand the site’s physical conditions and to identify potential opportunities as well as constraints. Armed with the client’s wish list and a knowledge of the site’s physical attributes, we then translate that information into a conceptual plan for your property. The conceptual plan depicts a general layout of proposed paved surfaces, walls, garden areas, and other desired site elements. With continued dialog, sketches, and feedback, conceptual ideas are refined, materials chosen, and landscape details developed. When a client is thoroughly satisfied with the design, construction plans are then drawn to give to a contractor to price and build the landscape. During construction Shoplick Landscape Architecture continues to work with the client and the contractor to ensure that the design vision is properly executed into built form.
Depending on the size and nature of your project, the design and construction
process may include collaborating with a team of people.... architects, civil engineers,
surveyors, environmental scientists, artists and/or contractors. It also may include
preparing submittals to town building departments, historic commissions, or wetland
