Some of our consultation and plan clients do the installations themselves; others shop our plans with multiple contractors so they can compare apples to apples, so to speak.
We can offer another option also. Once your consultation or plan is done, we can also offer project management and installation services. We routinely manage a wide variety of projects from a simple planting to a multi-phase, multi-year master plan implementation. All of the photos on our Portfolio page are managed projects.
Laura and I take great pride and joy in implementing the designs we have created. We have a network of insured, reliable contractors who work with us constantly as labor providers.
Some of the things we do as project managers:
Visit multiple nurseries and hand pick the plants for your project.
Help you pick out all of the design elements for your project – pavers and wall block, pergolas, outdoor kitchens and lighting. We’ll visit suppliers together and pick out what works best.
Interview and obtain quotes from multiple contractors on large projects if necessary.
We’ll be on site at critical times during the installation process; tweaking things and answering any of your or our sub-contractors questions to ensure we are on schedule and budget.
For smaller projects John will act as a job site foreman, bringing in a labor crew and working along side them.
Obviously all of this time and effort does add cost to a project but gives you a single point of contact for questions or concerns. Looking at our portfolio you can see the results.
We do get inundated with requests for this service ; in order to ensure that we have enough time to service all of our clients we only accept a few projects per season for management. Please contact us as early in your process as possible to allow for design and installation scheduling with our contractors.
