Planning a landscaping project is a key element of a project. Embarking on landscape design begins during the initial stages of project planning, our team was able to integrate the design, the functionality and the feel into a cohesive whole. The landscape design process is a series of steps taken to ensure all crucial environmental, sociological and client-requested design features are included in a landscape. This is important with large-scale projects involving multidisciplinary teams that include the client, landscape architect, surveyor, civil engineer and others, depending on the overall project scope.
The initial meeting with a client usually entails discussing the client's needs. The client goes over what needs to be done, and decisions are made as to who provides which service and obtains information. A scope of work and contract is prepared to summarize the meeting, with some form of fee schedule in place.
Miami Outdoor Solutions wil gather as much information in order to analyze a site,determine constraints, potential problems and significant features. Our research includes a a site visit; obtaining maps and reports on the property; researching jurisdictional records for zoning and permitting activities; a topographical survey of the site if nessesary; vegetation and endangered species analysis; and utility locations. A visual analysis of what is seen on and off the site and how that influences or impacts the use of the site is important.
After Miami Outdoor Solutions and Landscsaping has collected all information, a site analysis plan is generated to determine what impacts development has on the site, and how they are addressed. In some cases, the site may be determined to be unfit for the proposed use, and a replanning is taken into consideration. Once a project moves forward, a conceptual plan is prepared for the project site, taking into account all of the variables and site constraints.
Once the concept plan is approved by the client, the plan is converted into a development plan. This plan is very detailed, and is used to generate the final contract and a work schedule is assigned with a targeted completion date.
