Main Line landscaping design and installation customers often contact Aardweg Landscaping of Newtown Square, with the following question: “What is the process for having a landscape design completed?” Here’s our answer!
Our Philadelphia landscaping design services process begins with a meeting between our principal, Stephen T. Aardweg, and the client. As an Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) certified landscape designer, with over 35 years experience in the business of landscape design and installation, Steve is fully qualified to evaluate the particular challenges of your property to assist you in formulating a discriminating and unique design for your landscape.
Steve will then explain the presentation format options, which include:
Photographic Image Design Our most popular imaging option, realistic photographic digital images are taken and imported into a CAD program. We use the images to design and consult with you about the new “look” in the garden. The final image is emailed to the customer. Photographic image designs typically cost $100 per image, and two or three are required for a complete front yard or backyard design.
Landscape Master Plans These are traditional master landscape plan views of the property including the existing structure, plants, and new garden design. Landscape master plans vary from $550 to $1250, depending upon the size of the property, and the total new landscaped area.
3D Image Renderings We measure the property, draw it in the 3D modeling computer landscape design software, and 3D virtual images of your landscaped garden. 3D virtual image renderings vary from $750 to $1500, depending upon the size of the property, and the total area to be landscaped.
Once a format has been determined, the design process begins. Upon completion, the client is presented with preliminary figures for installation cost estimates for high, medium and low cost options, enabling you to adjust your installation costs to meet your budget.
Our Main Line landscaping design and installation process is carefully designed to provide you with a finished landscape installation that surpasses your highest expectations. Our Philadelphia landscaping design services include fall maintenance such as seasonal pruning, trimming and cleaning services; including bed weeding, and overgrown ivy and invasive plant control.
