Our Design Philosophy
NOAR is dedicated to designing beautiful, sustainable landscapes in the Capital Region of New York and Hampton Roads in VA . Our team's focus is to supplement your ideas, needs, and desires to produce budget-friendly & high-quality landscape plans.
Our Design Process
NOAR's design process infuses your feedback every step of the way. This collaborative approach helps our team generate as many creative options as possible, while we work towards a completed Landscape Plan Set.
Typically, our design process will take approximately 2-4 weeks to complete. However, the process may vary, based on project scope, timeline, and location.
Note: If your project requires permitting, this process may take an additional time, depending on your local government's permitting process.
Designer will visit site with you (and contractor if applicable) to discuss:
• Project Overall Vision (Style, Future Use, New Features, Plant Material)
• Problem Areas & Desired Maintenance Level
• Design and Construction Timeline
Designer will then send a design estimate, outlining scope of work, deliverables, and cost of services. At this time, we will require a 50% design deposit, and if you have one, your property's official site survey (sometimes in your homebuyer's package).
Designer will visit site to:
• Sketch Project Area
• Take Site Measurements
• Inventory Existing Features
• Take Site Photos
Using site visit information, designer will create concepts with your preferred landscape styles. At this time, if you have any inspiration photos, pinterest boards, etc, send them over and we'll incorporate any ideas you may have!
After completing concepts, Designer will send you a digital design package to review and provide feedback.
Using your feedback, Designer will combine the conceptual design into a detailed Landscape Plan. This plan will call out proposed site features, plant material, and rough dimensions. Material & Plant Palettes (with images, quantities, sizes, attractions, & potential vendors/nurseries) will be included to better visualize the project.
Designer will send you a digital copy of the Landscape Plan and any supporting documents to review and provide feedback.
After receiving your feedback, Designer will revise and refine accordingly. This phase will include final layout, dimensions, notes, and supporting documents to completely visualize the project.
After receiving your thumbs up, Designer will make any necessary adjustments and finalize your Landscape Plan.
Project will then move into the bidding and construction phase. If you don't have a contractor, we may help facilitate the process of finding one in your area if you need assistance.
Note: We don't provide any construction services.
