Elements of Sustainable Landscape Architecture
Sustainable landscape architecture involves creating a landscape that requires minimal use of water, energy, and fertilizer to maintain. From an ecological perspective, each landscape is crafted to create a harmonious environment that minimizes pollution while maximizing your enjoyment of the landscape.
From an economic perspective, the sustainable landscape designs we create at Greenwise are crafted to help minimize your long-term maintenance costs. As a core element of our design proposals, we provide a reliable accounting of the amount of water, fertilizer, and other maintenance expenses associated with the finished landscape.
Finally, we also consider the socio-cultural aspects of landscape design. We help you select elements and features that blend in with your interests, the natural environment, and the ambiance of your Chicago neighborhood. The result is a landscape that is a reflection of our community and the many facets that make Chicagoland unique in the country.
Our landscape design services are tailored to meet your individual needs. During our initial design consultation at your home, our team will take a thorough inventory of the site and your desired outcome. Using the information you provide regarding design style, foliage, materials, and budget, our team will create the perfect landscaping plan for your property.
Simple designs that don't require permits are easily handled through a descriptive proposal. These include designs that call for little more than sod, mulch, and basic drainage. Most design proposals are quick and easy to install, which means they will create minimal disruption to your daily life during the installation process.
Designs that require more intensive preparation of the site, construction of pathways, ponds, and other design features require a design retainer. Our design team will develop a concept and budget, as well as an installation proposal for you to review. The design retainer makes it possible to develop a comprehensive landscaping plan that is as beautiful and functional as it is efficient and effective.
More complex plans that require multi-stage installations require a design agreement. The team at Greenwise will develop the landscaping concept, budget, and options for phasing in each installation. The design agreement is crafted to create a cohesive, unified landscape for your home.
