Designing a Residential Landscape: Consultations, Concepts & Plans [VIDEO] How does the landscape design process start? For Green Jay Landscape Design, we have two initial options: a free 15-minute discovery call or a paid, 2-hour, on-site landscape design consultation with designer Jay Archer himself. This video explores all the factors that go into an ecological landscape design consultation and ultimately culminate in the landscape design concept, proposal, master plan and work estimates. Jay evaluates the soil, lighting and moisture conditions, as well as the clients’ lifestyle, architectural style and goals for outdoor living. Each project has its own unique set of design goals and sources of inspiration. Depending on the scope and scale of the project, it may require permitting, design plan renderings, Architectural Review Board meetings, construction details and more. Start your ecological landscape design project now with a landscape design consultation. Call Green Jay Landscape Design to schedule (914-560-6570) or submit a contact form.
