Design Process

 At Kramer Landscape we do not just provide the creativity, style, vision and attention to detail you would expect from a designer. We bring the hands-on, in field experience of actually constructing these plans in real life. This is how we do it:

Initial call or email

This first step is getting to know you. What do you need help with? Where are you located? What kind of time frame are we dealing with? Answering these questions and learning a little bit about the size and scope of work will help us determine if we are a good fit. Time is valuable and we don’t want to waste your time. If we are not a good fit, we will try to help point you in the right direction. If your needs match our focus, we will gladly move forward with an on-site evaluation.

On-site Evaluation

Your landscape plan is a lot more than a picture on a piece of paper. When we visit, our years of infield experience are what add true value to your plan. A few of the things we will be looking for:

  • How much light does the area get and what time of day?
  • What are the soil conditions?
  • Does the area have proper irrigation?
  • How is the grade?
  • Are there deer or other wildlife in the area?
  • Are the plants you want cold-tolerant? How could we protect them?
  • How will the area be used?
  • What are the primary viewing points?
  • Where are the underground utilities?
  • What other work has been done here?
  • What is the drainage situation? How will this project affect that? 
  • Who will be maintaining this?

After answering these and other important questions we will take any necessary pictures and measurements.


Standard estimates can usually be submitted through email within a few days. Landscape plans are a lot more involved. Although some simpler plans will be ready within a week, many plans can take as long as 2-3 weeks. (but it’s worth the wait) When your plan is ready we will set up a follow-up appointment. This will give us a chance to present the plan and answer any questions you may have. If you want to move forward with the installation we will put you in the schedule. If you need some time, take all the time you need. The plans are yours to keep.


Now it’s time to have some fun! We are bringing your dreams to life! Rest easy knowing that our highly skilled workers have been doing this for a long time. We will work tirelessly to locate the best plants available and we will make sure they love their new home. This is our passion. We want you to love outside as much as we do and we won’t stop until every little thing is perfect.
