Design & Build Process

Initial Meeting

The process starts by contacting our friendly office staff. During your initial meeting with our landscape designer you will discuss and determine your unique needs, goals and intended uses of your future landscape project and intended budget. We use our expertise and experience to guide your project to fit these needs in a thoughtful and value saving manner. A detailed and precise plan is the key to a successful project estimating, scheduling and completion.

"If you don’t know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else." -Yogi Bera

Design & Planning

After discussing your needs during the initial meeting we will then create an conceptual digital design for your review. Based on your review and feedback our designer will begin to customize and revise the design as needed. Our designer will use your project budget to incorporate the appropriate products and materials to ensure that the final project aligns with your expectations.

Our 2D and 3D computer designs allow you to test drive your landscape and make changes before construction starts.

Revisions & Estimating

With your feedback and proposed adjustments we make the necessary revisions to the design for your final approval. At this point we are also able to generate a precise estimate of materials, labor and project costs. Our design software allows us to accurately estimate required materials for your project. A proposal with detailed line items outlines the exact quantity and costs of all intended materials and items. We have found that our customers are very comfortable with our process and the transparency of our material quantity, labor and rates. An investment in your landscape and home is often a large expense. We want to make sure that you are completely satisfied with the design, proposal and schedule before a shovel ever hits the ground.

Approval & Scheduling

When you are completely satisfied with your design and proposal we will finalize our contract agreements and schedule the start of your project. An initial deposit is taken your project is assigned a dedicated project manager and moves to our production team for construction.

Our scheduling department keeps a very accurate calendar that our crews rely on to schedule the logistical items of your project which includes DigSafe, Material & Equipment Delivery and Installation Crew.


Project Start

Your project manager has contacted Dig-Safe, identified site conditions, assigned your project team and coordinated materials and equipment for delivery to your property. Your project is completed by specialized teams of expert hardscape masons, landscapers, and irrigation technicians. A dedicated project manager is your primary contact until final completion and approval.

At this point you will see how a properly planned project leads to an efficient and well orchestrated execution. Having the plan and details identified early in the planning process will serve to save time and money as construction unfolds.
