CREATIONS' DESIGN PHILOSOPHY & DESIGN FEE POLICY
Natural Creations specializes in the art of creative, artistic,
and naturalistic landscape design. This involves the designing
of new or renovated landscapes for both residential and commercial
projects. Natural Creations is also often requested to design decks,
swimming pools, sidewalks, patios, and low-voltage landscape lighting.
We work very closely with clients to develop a landscape theme
on each project. This theme is usually based upon a client's taste
and/or the architecture of the building or home to be landscaped.
Designs are always functional, low in maintenance, and aesthetically
pleasing. As clients have varying tastes, we make diligent efforts
to combine those tastes with our professional ideas.
Natural Creations acts primarily as a design/build contractor.
In other words, we design projects, select all the materials needed
to complete the project, and install the project to meet the expectations
of the client. Designing creative and well contrived landscapes
requires education, experience, research, skill, and time. Site
analysis, sketching, rendering and/or computer aided design of
final plans can be very time consuming. Designing and installing
our own projects allows us total control over the final product.This
includes spending a great deal of time hand-selecting the finest
quality plant material available. Unlike some of our competitors,
Natural Creations is not simply in the market to sell plants, instead
we sell ideas combined with quality labor and quality materials.
Upon request, Natural Creations makes one appointment to meet with
a client interested in our design and installation services. This
is a no-charge consultation. At this time, we visit with the client
to determine their needs and to discuss how we might be of service.
Following the initial interview, a landscape plan and/or proposal
will be prepared to meet the guidelines discussed with the client.
Following completion of the initial design (plan), a second meeting
will be scheduled. The design and its details, including a proposal
of required costs, will be described at this meeting. If the client
is pleased with the proposed design and ideas, they may elect to
pay for the design work or to accept our installation proposal.
All design work is billed at an hourly fee. No design work will
be given to a prospective client until a contract is signed or
until the client pays for the design. Upon acceptance of the proposal
to implement the design, the client will be asked to sign a contract
which outlines the work to be completed and the agreed cost.
