Site planning refers to the organizational stage of the landscape design process. It involves the organization of program elements such as access, circulation, privacy, security, shelter, drainage, erosion control and other factors.
Westmore Design can help you with your site planning through careful site analysis and expert knowledge of our mountain environments. A typical site plan would show site features such as existing trees, existing and proposed buildings, property boundaries, setbacks, proposed grades, erosion controls, walls, utility locations, and any special features. The plan will be suitable for construction, bidding and submittal for municipal or community review.
Elements of garden or landscape design include the layout of hard landscape, paths, walls, water features, sitting areas and decking, as well as planting beds, specimen trees and shrubs, and lawns. Plants and trees are considered for their horticultural requirements, their season-to-season appearance, lifespan, growth habit, size, speed of growth, and combinations with other plants and landscape features. Consideration is also given to the maintenance needs of the garden.
