The Design + Build Process
We would like to suggest you begin the process by perusing our website, reading our reviews on Yelp and Diamond Certified, and looking through our Houzz page. These will give you an inclination if Samscaping is the right design-build company for your project.
The next step is a phone call or email to our office. One of our designers will ask you a few questions about your project and will let you know how we can help. If we are a good fit for you, we will schedule an initial site visit to meet with you and see your property in person.
Introduction → Design Phase → Estimate Presentation
INTRODUCTION First contact and conversation to determine moving forward and to schedule initial meeting with designer.
- Initial Meeting Clients and designers will meet for brief, 35-40 min, meeting to determine scope and overall budget of project.
- Design Proposal After initial meeting, the designer will send you a design proposal outlining the cost of the design, timeline, and what is included in your design.
DESIGN PHASE Once you have signed the design proposal and sent in the deposit, our design team will work with you to establish a project budget and to create a landscape conceptual plan that is creative, functional, site-specific, and complementary to your style and your home’s architecture and surroundings.
ESTIMATE PRESENTATION As a design-build firm, we do not offer design only. Your landscape design is considered part of your installation package and is not intended to be a stand-alone design for bidding to other companies. Once the design is accepted, we will present the final plan with an installation cost estimate and a timeline for your project. We are then ready to begin installing your new garden. The design team will work in conjunction with our Field Manager Frank and our fabulous crew to build your dream garden.
Installation → Warranty → Maintenance
During the Build phase the Samscaping Team will further develop your vision. Collaborating with our skilled craftsmen your project will begin to take shape.
We build our gardens to last, and therefore do not cut corners when it comes to creating the infrastructure that supports the beautiful new garden that is to take shape. We understand that a new landscape is an investment in the future, and we make sure everything we do is of the highest quality to create landscapes that just get better with age.
Samscaping boasts a skilled installation crew to build your dream garden. Your project will be led by Frank, our field manager, with help and direction from one of our crew leads. In addition, we have some of the best crew members in the business. Most of our crew members have been with Samscaping for many years; Antonio our head maintenance person has been with us for twenty years and counting! Our crew is polite, professional, and eager to do their best work on every job. You can relax, knowing that your project is in good hands. We care about your garden as much as you do.
INSTALLATION We believe that the success of your garden and landscape depends heavily on three things: adequate drainage, proper soil preparation, and correct irrigation.
During the installation, we will keep you informed and updated on the progression of your project. The design team will also be on hand to assist with changes and modifications and to make sure that every detail is attended to.
WARRANTY All materials and plants are warrantied for 1 year. Your project is not complete until you are satisfied with our work and the end result of a beautiful and functional garden.
MAINTENANCE After our team is finished building your dream landscape, you can opt to have our maintenance team take over in the care of your investment. We are available for quarterly, monthly, or weekly visits--it’s entirely up to you. Our maintenance team will keep your landscape weed-free, properly pruned, and will catch any potential issues before they become big problems.
