Our initial visit to your home or office, usually one hour, is a no obligation brain storming session. During this first meeting, we make every attempt to understand what you want and need. Show us pictures, tell stories of things you have seen, show us an artifact all these contribute to the creative process of building a connection between what you envision and what is affordable, functional and aesthetic. All the way through this first meeting, impressions are formed, sometimes vague, sometimes clear, but rarely complete. At the end of our initial visit, we can provide you with an initial estimate based on rough calculations. At this point, you decide if you would like us to proceed with the design phase. A design presentation including a scaled drawing, materials list and price quote is the next step. Our fee for this service depends on the size and scope of the project. Upon approval of the design, payment schedule, and start date, a deposit is required. Then, just sit back and watch it happen. If you decide not to proceed with the design phase, there is no cost to you for the time spent discussing your project. Shibui Landscaping is a responsible, reliable and professional company.
