Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. The sprinkler work I did on October 8 was at a residential house whose sprinkler heads had poor coverage. Plugging several unneeded heads improved the pressure for each zone. coverage was further increased by movi ng a few heads,and changing a few spray heads to rotors.
A previous job was removing a certain area of lawn at a residential entrance way an d improving the entranceway with a variety of shrubs, perennials, ornamental grasses, river cobble, moss rock , and bark mulch.
Another job was a complete remodel in Littleton , including tree and stump removal, layers of rock and old plastic weed barrier removal, and recreating these areas with earth berms, a low profile decorative wall, and new plantings of shrubs, grasses, and perennials. existing materials on site were also reused such as cobble and moss rock. the sprinkler system was then updated by replacing old sprinkler heads with better coverage, adjusted to the right angle and height. The lawn was then soil prepped and reseeded.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. I would like to talk to the owner, or someone knowlegable.
References and pictures of past projects are important. Pricing must be competitive, along with any warranty provided. Professionalism during the whole process is also very important.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. As a landscape designer with a degree in landscape architecture and over 25 years experience, I am proud to have served the Denver front range area.
An initial meeting begins the design process. Opportinities and constraints of the site are discussed before developing an actual landscape plan. Pictures of past projects help show how landscape materials work together.
Depending on the clients needs, an estimate may be in order at this time. A landscape plan or drawing may be required, especially for new homes or properties.
Once the plan has been drawn, a second meeting is in order. If the drawing is acceptable after a brief presentation, pricing and scheduling are discussed before beginning of work.
