1. Tell us about your property

Beaver Valley Landscape

Whether you’d like to transform your entire property or spruce up a particular area, the first step is for us to discover how you’d like to use your space.

We’ll schedule an in-person consultation to discover your needs and wish list for your property. Together, we’ll walk the area to take measurements and examine the unique features of your property, so we can make custom recommendations based on your project and our years of landscape design and horticulture experience.

During the consultation phase, it will also be important for us to define your budget. Knowing your budget allows us to create the right drawing and planting plan for your project.

 

2. Landscape Design

Based on the information shared during your consultation, we will begin to create a detailed drawing of your project. We’ll be working simultaneously on getting your project into our schedule so that we never leave you waiting longer than necessary.

Once we’ve presented your design, we’ll work together to make sure your vision has been captured. Once you’re happy and the design is approved, we’ll provide you with a detailed quote and payment plan.

3. Construction Begins

We know a major renovation can be stressful as well as exciting! For us, it’s a priority to keep on schedule and on budget. We’ll install your project with clear communication throughout the process, and look after applying for permits and ordering all materials related to the job.

4. Care for Your Investment

Landscape Terminology

Hardscape

Hardscape refers to features in the landscape that are built out of hard materials such as concrete pavers, limestone, granite, concrete, and wood. This includes patios and walkways, walls, steps, decks, pergolas and screens.

When building any hardscape feature it is always important that it is built properly. This means that there is a proper base or footings, as well as appropriate drainage. It is also important to make sure that any municipal codes are followed.

We would be happy to enhance your outdoor living space with a new hardscape feature. Please let us know how we can help.

  • Patios
  • Walkways
  • Driveways
  • Small retaining walls
  • Armourstone
  • Granite boulders
  • Steps
  • Decks
  • Wooden screens
  • Pergolas and Arbors
  • Raised garden beds

Softscape

Softscape refers to the features in the landscape that are made up of living, horticultural components. This includes perennial and shrub borders, tree plantings, flowers, vegetable gardens as well as lawns.

Softscapes are a great way to finish off the hardscaping elements of your landscape. Low ground covers soften the edges of a stone patio, for example. They can also be a complete landscape all on their own; a few beautiful perennial border gardens connected with paths of lawn or mulch.

One more important thing to remember when installing softscapes is the soil. Without a healthy soil, nothing you plant will thrive. It is always a good idea to add a good compost to the existing soil to provide nutrients and micro-organisms. Mulching after planting will also help by keeping weeds out and water in.

  • Tree planting
  • Shrub and perennial planting
  • Annual planting
  • Soil grading
  • Sodding or seeding

Renovation

In landscaping, Renovation typically refers to changes made to existing features in the landscape. It usually involves the softscapes of the landscape but can sometimes include the hardscapes.

Renovating the softscapes might refer to making gardens or lawns bigger or smaller. This might include splitting perennials to accommodate the new space, or moving existing plants around in the garden. Sometimes the wrong plant has been planted and is not performing well, or is performing too well and is taking over the garden. Renovations could include removing these poor performers and replacing them with the right plant.

A garden renovation might be as simple as weeding out an overgrown garden and adding compost to amend the soil and mulch to help regulate water and keep weeds at bay.

  • Splitting perennials
  • Transplanting
  • Garden edging
  • Weeding
  • Compost and Mulch
  • Planting
  • Sodding
  • Extending a patio or pathway
  • Re leveling a patio or walkway
