Life is full of changes and transitions...
Whether it’s buying a home, starting a new job, getting married or having a child, many of them are significant and can change the course of your life.
For many people, one of these changes is the design and construction of a new landscape. Reimagining your front or back yard — or both — is extremely exciting. But it can also be cause for worry and hesitation.
We understand that choosing a company to help you make your vision a reality can be difficult. That’s why we shaped our process to be as enjoyable and as intuitive as possible for our clients.
Know your “why?” Design within it.
At Vandenberg, we always start your landscape design by asking a simple but profound question: “why?” Asking this question is the most important first step we can take, and it’s why we call it our “purpose-driven design process.” Because when we ask "why?" we can create award-winning spaces and deliver a refreshing client experience. Together.
First, we meet with you and get to know you better. Then, we start working out your vision on paper — helping you prioritize features, choose appropriate materials and incorporate meaningful details. As the design takes shape under the guiding hands of our designers, you’ll be invited to review the progress and maybe even try it on for size with 3D digital models. With the design completed, you’re free to simply step back and watch the transformation take place.
A purpose-driven design process.
At Vandenberg, our designers guide you through a process that works. Our clients consistently tell us how pleased they are with the results.
The first meeting
First, we meet you at your home to discover what you’re looking for. This first conversation is crucial. In it, we ask you “why?” and explore your vision for the project — making our recommendations.
Presenting 3D concepts & budget
Once we’ve clarified your vision with you, our design team gets to work. They'll present their hard work to you in 3D concepts. You’ll also receive an outline of the budget for the project.
Revisions & detailed quote
After revisions, take another walk through an immersive 3D view of your new landscape. We then provide you with an itemized quote that goes into detail on our installation practices, the materials we’ll be using and your warranty information. We can also provide you with a 2D construction drawing or planting plan at an additional cost.
Once we've finalized the design and budget, our project coordinator meets with you. In the weeks leading up to the project, they confirm everything and make sure you know what to expect. They also communicate with your neighbours about the work that we'll be doing and the approximate time we'll be on-site. During this step, we look after all of the necessary permits and paperwork.
During the build, our project coordinator touches base with you daily, whether on-site or by email.
Project review & walkthrough
When we complete your project, we walk you through the finished product with one of our team members. During this walkthrough, you can voice any questions you might have.
My wife and I have worked with Vandenberg's Landscape Design several times over the past 15 years. Recently, they completed a large project at our home and we're extremely happy with the results. Matt and his team are very professional and a pleasure to work with. The final completed product speaks for itself! — Brad DeWit, Chilliwack
