Landfour Landscape Architecture designs landscapes for every type of client, site, use and budget. From a 300-square foot, urban garden for a family of four to a ten-acre botanic garden and everything in between we take a unique approach to designing your landscape.
Landfour’s philosophy isn’t wordy and our attitude isn’t exclusive. We just think that every client and every site deserves excellent design. Our approach is simple. Our goal is to create a landscape design that connects the client’s needs and the structure’s character to the site’s unique features. And get this… every project that we design is designed to meet a construction budget.
Creating the perfect landscape starts with a good conversation. After taking the time to get to know our clients, their lifestyle, wants, wishes, needs, personality, and budget the project goals and budget are developed. To connect the projects goals and budget with the site, the unique characteristics of the land, existing elements and the surrounding area are carefully considered. After the project has been studied the client is presented with three key pieces of information: a basic sketch of the project site and key elements, a construction budget and a design proposal. With these three elements, the client is empowered to make a sound decision in moving forward with their landscape project. Once the goals and budget are set, design begins.
