Online Landscape Design Services:


CAD Landscape Plans, Virtual 3D Landscape Rendering, Digital Landscape Photo Imaging

Drafted scale drawings of hardscape features (patios, paths, walls, pergolas, etc), water features, plants and lighting, using professional CAD software, result in precise, easy to read plans. During the *design process, photo imaging or 3D rendering software is used as a design tool to aid in visualizing the proposed finished product. Unique plant palettes are created for each client based on location, personal taste and unique site conditions.
*Web conferencing is used to conduct online meetings during the design development process. Clients are invited to view my computer desktop where I am able to display plant palette photos, site photos, the CAD plan, imaging photos or 3D renderings. In addition, we are able to visit websites pertinent to the plants or materials used in the design.
