Residential Landscaping

Whether you have a vision for how your home nestles into the landscape or you have something more dramatic in mind, whether you want to add to your existing home or you’re building a new home, or you just need some inspiration, Context By Design is here to help you make it a reality.

We’ve helped many home owners by offering advice on how to improve the look of their property. Our suggestions have included revitalizing mature or ‘less that optimum’ landscaping, adding outdoor landscape features such as a deck, patio or wall, and/or designing pedestrian and vehicular circulation areas.

From a brief initial discussion Context By Design can provide you with an idea of how the landscape design process would proceed and what, if any issues you might face along the way. At that time we can also provide you with an estimate of how long the project could take and possibly, if the thought is developed sufficiently, an idea of the project budget. For certain projects involving specialized services (pools, additional buildings or building additions, significant retaining walls, etc.), Context By Design can assemble and facilitate a team of the proper professionals who will get your project done on time and on budget.

Should the project require local, state or federal permits, Context By Design knows the process and the regulators. We can act as your agent and facilitate the necessary applications to get regulatory approval for your project quickly.

Landscape Planning Tip:

Residential Landscaping

Any time is a good time to begin planning your landscape improvements, but the best time is in the fall and early winter. Many people begin to enjoy the warmth and blooms of late spring and summer and get motivated to improve their landscapes. While this is certainly good, what many find is that landscape contractors have work scheduled for the following several weeks or more and those good intentions get put off, often indefinitely.

By developing your landscape plan in the fall and/or early winter you get a triple bottom line benefit from: your thoughts of likes and wants being still relatively fresh in mind, you can schedule the work to begin in the spring and take advantage of the full growing season, and possibly most important, you can typically benefit from favorable pricing because the contractor is assured of a project to begin his season.
