Urban Oasis Landscape Design
Project Management
When a client accepts the design proposal, it is assumed that the designer will be retained throughout the installation process to oversee the construction and installation of hardscape or other garden structures, and to manage the installation of plants. This will entail daily visits to the construction site to assure that the project is implemented as intended and ensure the integrity of the garden plan. The designer will be available to contractors for consultation and clarification of construction details. Photographic documentation of the project will be provided upon request.

Behind the Scenes of a Residential Project

Crumbling steps are too narrow and steep

New steps with long treads hug hillside and take a gentle journey to the upper level

Concrete and brick echo materials in other architectural features

New plantings and railing compel the visitor to meander up the steps

Steep back steps hug the house uncomfortably and lead to a window well

Old steps removed

New ample, curving steps laid out

New steps lead to new dining patio and provide a nook for the barbecue

Crumbling terra cotta pavers are misplaced and unsightly

Round dining patio is laid out

The shape of the patio echoes the voluptuous curves of the house

New steps spill into the new dining patio and provide a nook for the barbecue grill
