|Step 1 – Consultation
The first step in our design process is a client consultation. A trained Hunter Landscape Design professional will visit your home to examine and discuss all aspects of the site; from the interior and exterior of your home, existing colour schemes and structural components to the architectural site analysis. There is a consultation fee applicable for this portion for the design process; later this fee can be applied toward the final cost stated on the Design Contract.
Step 2 – Design
After reviewing the goals and objectives for your project a Design Contract is written up to verify both parties agreement on the applicable fee and design package components. The contract will include the following plans and information:
A preliminary landscape plan with a preliminary budget will be brought back to the client to discuss likes and dislikes. Any changes that need to be made are done at this time.
Detailed Landscape Plan:
A final landscape plan with all components labelled including hardscape dimensions and materials (patios, arbours, small building construction like gazebos and sheds, retaining walls, etc.) and softscape areas and materials (all plant material). Plants will be labelled with common and botanical names and listed with the quantities and nursery sizes. This portion also includes a final detailed estimate with a breakdown of each individual ‘work area’ of the design.
Plant Care Package:
A detailed package complete with plant photographs and descriptions including bloom time and colour, and plant care instructions such as pruning and fertilizing techniques is provided. We will also include planting instructions if the client decides not to use our company for the installation.

Step 3 – Installation
Upon plan approval we begin installation and are happy to divide the design into manageable portions in order to fit your timeline and budget.
