Master Planning

For Your Dream Landscape

Our design process brings your outdoor dreams to life

Whether you want us to create a master plan to completely redo your landscaping or you want to install just one element like a wall, pond, patio or landscape lighting, call us for advice – not a sales pitch.

A Master Plan Is Your Blueprint For Beauty

Whether you have a project you've been dreaming about, or you're not sure where to start and want to explore the potential of your yard, our design process will help you visualize the perfect outdoor space for your lifestyle. From curb appeal to back yard getaways, we'll plan and document everything from the layout and plantings, to the décor, focal points, recreational spaces and more. Our master plans are living, breathing documents that can grow and change with your needs and desires, whether you want to completely redo your space or phase in one piece at a time.

Our Process Inspires And Visualizes

First, we will ask you questions and listen to ensure we understand your ideas and dreams. Next, we will take you on a tour of our showroom property where you can see, feel and smell all the landscape elements and feed your imagination. Then we will schedule a visit to your home. At that meeting we will be able to determine how our ideas and your desires will work with your property. Based on our review of your property, we will be able to paint a picture of the full potential of your landscape project and to offer options to meet the investment you wish to make.

We wish to express our thanks to you and the staff of Grounds Keeper for a job well done from the initial consultation to the completed vision. It seems somewhat serendipitous that we attended one of your store seminars and were introduced to the exceptional work of your company. We eagerly anticipated and received detailed plans of the project to develop our property. Craig developed two architectural plans that were combined into a final drawing that was exceptional. It was always clear that changes could be implemented as we went along. We greatly appreciated that Craig made additional weekend visits to review specifics. Every aspect of the proposal was beautiful.

Our process and master plans are not only designed to inspire, but to provide the foundation for your project, whether it’s a complete makeover or a phased-in approach over time. Our master plans are detailed and thorough, including the layout, plantings, considerations for sun, water, maintenance and more. Many of our customers treat their master plans as artwork and treasured memories, too. They can be framed and serve as a reminder of your journey.

But there’s more to our process than just planning. When we engage in a project with you, we’re dedicated from start to finish, coordinating material deliveries, setting up inspections, coordinating specialty trades and more. Our supervisors will meet with you daily if it suits your schedule, or as often as possible to update you on progress and answer any questions.

We pride ourselves on communication, education, and ensuring that your space is pristine and protected no matter the stage of the project.
