We have a distinct approach to landscape architecture. Our designs are composed with the purpose of synthesizing your project’s architectural qualities and personal aesthetic with the natural surroundings and with the life of the community in which you have chosen. Our experience and insight will turn your ideas into an integrated living environment because we believe that gardens are a special art form.
John Lindsay Mayer Landscape Architect will provide; schematic drawings, design development plans, construction documentation, consultation and construction administration, container garden installation and flower garden installations. We subcontract surveying, civil engineering, lighting design, landscape construction and landscape maintenance services.
Initially, we schedule a site visit with potential clients, discuss your needs and your budget. Establishing client needs involves discussion of specific ideas that define your landscape project. What is the scope of work? What are the functional, environmental and aesthetic considerations? Are the materials and details to be used complimentary to the architecture and site? Are we creating a landscaping for all the activities that you can imagine? An estimate or proposal of our services will be prepared and sent promptly. Once the estimate and scope of work is accepted we will begin the design.
The result will be a conceptual drawing of your project laid out in a clear and understandable way on CAD. Once this conceptual design is agreed upon, we will develop the design, draw renderings, prepare construction drawings, prepare detail drawings and create the bidding documents as necessary.
We believe a great final product will result when we manage the construction. Our administration of the bidding and building aspects of the project is recommended. We carefully supervise, consult and approve all subcontractors work from bid approval through the contractors warranty period.
