A Landscape Design Master Plan is a full-property design plan represented as an industry-standard AutoCAD drawing, and often accompanied by plant photos, reference photos, color renderings, and/or section drawings to fully convey the design concept.

We often recommend Landscape Design Master Plans to clients who come to us initially with smaller projects, because a design is more cohesive when looked at and conceptualized broadly instead of piecemealed together without an overarching vision.  Plus, for projects that require permits and sitting before the Architectural Review Board, the board members will certainly want to know if there are any other plans for the rest of the property, even if, for example, the client only intends to install the backyard this year.

Plan view of the Cold Spring property reveals the extensive circulation to be thought through, from guest house to main house to garage to backyard.

A full-property plan helps both the client and the designer manage phases, expectations and resources, all while staying within a clear design vision.
