Visibility & Site Analysis
What's your property's sun exposure? Does the wind blow in a predominant direction? What's the topography and soil condition? Do you have paths, walkways, streets, or parking lots on or around it? Are there pleasant or unpleasant views? What types of structures sit on the property? What issues does the property have?
The Elegant Outdoor Designs team will study your property and produce a drawing of your property's current condition. This information provides the knowledge required to start the design process to create a master plan.
Plant, Shrub & Tree Inventory
Knowing the species, size, quantity, health, and location of plants, shrubs, and trees you have on your property is a good start for any project. It helps determine your property's safety level, gives you the ability to make data-driven decisions, aids in establishing short- and long-term landscape investments, and provides guidance on new plantings.
Our landscape experts will conduct a 360-degree, ground-based visual inspection of your property, take measurements and photos, and develop a graphical or tabular report detailing your property's current condition.
Site & Amenity Space Design Plans
Property lines. Elements. Structures. Placement. Proportion.
Whether you're developing a new property and need a long-term master plan, designing a segment of your property, or enhancing an existing landscape to fit your lifestyle better, these are the components of an innovative Elegant Outdoor Designs' 3D site and amenity plan.
Our landscape architect and designers collaboratively work with you to provide a visual road map that minimizes environmental impact and maximizes usage, enjoyment, and value. It includes the elements and structures you have and want impeccably placed within your property lines in the appropriate proportion.
Need help designing your landscape?
No matter if it's live, work, or play, Americans want to be closer to nature and green space because it promotes physical and emotional well-being. For communities incorporating a green infrastructure as a structural building block reduces flooding by managing stormwater runoff, promotes water conservation, mitigates heat islands and pollution, boosts the economy, and saves money.
Whether you're creating a new urban or suburban community or reimaging one, Elegant Outdoor Designs can develop a green space ecosystem that connects people with nature, complements building architecture, is adaptive and human-scaled, and contextually fits its location.
Turning a blank tract of land into an estate, corporate center/industrial park, or subdivision alters the landscape and the natural habitat for animals, birds, and insects. Federal, state, and local governmental entities regulate many of these alterations.
Elegant Outdoor Designs can conduct analyses of the land and landscape and feasibility studies, develop master plans that minimize the impact on the natural habitat while maximizing your return-on-investment, and provide guidance throughout the approval process.
Ecological & Environmental Planning
Nature isn't just grasses, plants, shrubs, and trees. It includes animals, birds, and insects. The environment's ecosystem is finely balanced when disturbed during the construction of buildings, homes, driveways, and roadways; it's forever altered.
When developing your property, Elegant Outdoor Designs' design team can help you plan your project and the final product so that it preserves and maintains the natural environment while being practical, healthy, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing.
Heritage Conservation & Preservation
Communities deem some buildings and structures to have cultural or historical value requiring preservation. They can also designate landscapes, landforms, and views to be artifacts for conservation when adding or modifying a home, building, walkway, driveway, or road on the property.
By engaging Elegant Outdoor Designs during the project's planning stages, we can help you identify, assess, document, and mitigate impacts to heritage resources leading to a faster approval process.
