Here's how it works: Our objective is to provide you with a professional, clean and concise plan-view drawing of the vision you have for your client's new landscape for the best communication in presenting your ideas. Our cost to provide this service is intended to allow you to also make some profit from the design phase (based on industry standard cost for design work only). It has the potential to free you up for managing your installation business without spending your time drafting up a sketch to sell your ideas. No employee costs for you; we are happy to work on a job by job basis as needed. We would love to work regulary with you but are happy to do "as needed" overflow work as well.Over time, as we get more familiar with each other's preferences and procedures, work will become more efficient in time and effort to execute.
Drafting Only Service
Provide us with a sketched representation of the client's site, including all pertinent dimensions and existing components of the site
An array of photos showing the site from all angles, giving us a good visual representation of the site to help tell the site story
Fill out our Job Detail form and provide any and all information that relays to us what the new design will include and the preferred materials used for labeling.
From this information, we will expertly draft a preliminary design showing the design you envision for presenting to your client to sell your installation project. Communication will be key between us to make sure we have all of the details needed. We will email the file to you prior to your presentation for your stamp of approval, and we can make adjustments as needed. It will be scaled appropriately complete with symbols for plant materials and hardscape components, labeled to your specifications. It will have your company information listed in the Title Block to represent your company. You can create a quote from this drawing and include it in the presentation. Once your client has approved the design and is ready to proceed, your preliminary design will become a working drawing used to communicate with your staff, crew and subcontractors. We can provide a separate drawing with dimensions only that can assist you with your quote procedure.
