Our Services

Landscape Inspection

People hire inspectors to check the condition and health of a building's structure and mechanical systems before purchasing it. Doing this ascertains if there are any significant issues they will be taking on. Since the landscape has a considerable impact on a property's value, a prospective buyer should have it inspected as well.

Elegant Outdoor Designs can conduct a detailed and in-depth inspection of a property's landscape. Our inspections determine if there are hardscape, lighting, or irrigation issues. They also check the health and well-being of the grass, plants, shrubs, and trees.

Design & Budget Evaluation

No matter your property type, your landscape design needs to embrace nature predictably while minimizing its impact on the environment and maximizing its ROI. However, you may not know how to determine if a proposed design fits the aesthetic and functional qualities best suited for the property and the project.

Elegant Outdoor Designs' landscape architects and designers can help you select the appropriate design by reviewing submitted proposals and providing an unbiased appraisal of the program's benefits. Additionally, we can analyze the proposed budget to determine if it is adequate and realistic.

Construction Management - Design and Budget Evaluation


Landscape projects come in a variety of sizes and complexities. The larger the project, the more complexities and moving pieces are involved. Envisioning all of the steps involved and ensuring everyone is on the same page and in sync can be difficult and highly stressful for the property owner.

Elegant Outdoor Designs' construction management team eliminates the stress and worry. We do this by mapping out all of the project's phases and developing highly-detailed plans, timelines, and budgets. Then, when weather interrupts, make modifications to keep the project moving forward.

Warranty Inspection

Most builders and landscapers provide a limited-time warranty that covers defects with workmanship and materials, including plants, shrubs, and trees.
