Taking this list of design items we have developed, we carefully analyze your exterior space and how it relates to your home and neighborhood. After researching applicable local building codes, we take these observations and information back to our studio and develop one or more hand drawn conceptual design options.
We use drawing techniques such as sketches and sections/elevations, and reference photos to further illustrate the design intent. We offer 3D computer modeling (SketchUp) as an option to assist you in visualizing your design and materials. After you have selected a conceptual design option that best suits you and your property, we will develop a Draft Hardscape Plan in AutoCAD.
If you would like to have the aid of 3D computer visualization, we would prepare the SketchUp model at this time to help in fine-tuning the design layout, proportions and materials.
