Our process is 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. We start with a master plan, a detailed and thorough map that includes layout, plantings, considerations for sun, water, maintenance, and more. Many of our customers treat their master plans as artwork and treasured memories, too.
Our Design Process
Start with a consultation. End with your dream space.
A Blueprint For Beauty
Whether you have a project you've been dreaming about, or you're not sure where to start, our design process will help you visualize the perfect outdoor space for your lifestyle. We plan and document everything from the layout and plantings, to the décor, focal points, recreational spaces and more. We’re dedicated to your project from start to finish, coordinating material deliveries, setting up inspections, and more. Your master plan is a living, breathing document that can grow and change with your needs and desires.
How It Works
When we meet for your first consultation, 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.Jerrilyn and Tom B.Matawan, New Jersey
