Our Process


Garden Design Services

Landscape Design

We walk alongside you to bring out the details of your perfect landscape design. Tell us what you envision, or let us help you start from the ground up once we get to know your personality and priorities.  Starting from your initial free consultation, we'll begin to develop a personalized design as unique as you and your space.

We are designers rather than contractors

We provide you with all the tools you need to bring your personalized landscapes to life.  When it is time to get planting, we can direct you to contractors who can install those projects for you.  With your uniquely detailed design and materials in hand, you will save money by paying larger contractors directly just for instillation.  We will suggest contractors we trust, or you could use a contractor you already know and trust or install the design yourself.  We can be onsite to make sure every detail is planted according to your specifications.

Plant and Material Recommendations

We have links to the best national suppliers and local materials.  We can help you find the perfect stone, wood or planting containers to fit your space, ambiance and budget.  From plant varieties to irrigation and ease of maintenance, we'll work with you on ever detail to make sure we fit your lifestyle.  We know the landscape industry.  Let us simplify your life by finding the best price and quality products to bring your project to life.

Our Process


Uniquely Personal

Although each Detailed Floral Design service is custom-tailored to your needs, here is what you can expect from this personalized process:

Complementary Consultation

This is an on-site opportunity for you to get to know us and for us to learn more about your hopes and dreams for your garden.  As we walk through your garden and review your Garden Design Questionnaire, we will discuss your vision for your space.  Soon after, we will email you a Proposal for Design Services outlining the timeline, details and fee schedule for your garden design.  After we agree and sign the proposal, we will begin our in-depth steps of understanding your space and  bringing your project to life.

Site Analysis

During this step, we will collect soil samples and test pH and composition.  We will also measure your space and photograph your existing garden.  This invaluable information will ensure that our professional design naturally flows throughout your space.

Concept Development and Preliminary Plans

Next the expertise of our professional garden designer will create a uniquely personal, functional, and beautiful mixture of your preferences blended with the site's potentials.  We will choose plants and materials to match your needs and desires.  With the selected materials, we will create two sketched planting arrangements.  During our second consultation, you will have the opportunity to look over these plans and determine which elements to carry forward into the final plan.

Final Plan and Third Consultation

Your preliminary plan will be revised with grace and purpose in every detail to create a final plan which shows where each element should be placed on the site.  In addition, we will provide a quantified list of plants and materials, complete with photos, plant information and care instructions.  You will receive the final plans and resources during your third consultation.

Plant Purchase and Delivery

Once your plans are finalized, Detailed Floral Design is ready to begin shopping wholesale for your plants and materials, passing the savings on to you.  We will deliver the plants to your garden, ready for you to plant or for your contractor to install.  When we deliver your plants we will also share a list of your wholesale cost for each plant along side the current retail cost.  Although the time of year and variety of plants will factor in, our clients save an average of 25% off retail plant prices through our plant purchase and delivery services.
