New Friend (Client) Pre-Design Questionnaire
We’re so glad you’re thinking about a landscape project!
Starting off in the direction and on the same page can make the process easier and more streamlined.
The following questions will help us envision the outdoor experience you’ve always dreamed of. Feel free to give as much or as little detail as you would like. Skip over anything you’re unsure of or don’t know. If you have specific ideas there is plenty of space at the end where you can articulate your vision.
This may seem like a lot of questions, but that’s because we want to know as much as possible about your project so we can be sure to deliver you a great design and help make you’re home awesome.
