Every landscape design project begins with site analysis.
Detailed information is required such as the house on the property and how it relates, existing outbuildings, unique features, site grading, drainage, privacy concerns, noise issues, poor views, amazing views, special elements that must remain, site utilities, neighbouring properties and how they relate, fencing, hardscape, softscape, sun and wind, and everything else. It is a technical service that gathers all the info required to properly design a new landscape or renovation.
Rhino Designs in most cases does the analysis which includes site measurements, photo inventory and surveying. In more complicated sites or large scale properties Rhino Designs will coordinate land surveyors to carry out this work.
It all begins with Existing Conditions.
An exitsting conditions plan is always provided with the design for use in the construction and to better inform the client on what has to be done to achieve the final landscape project. It is also the base on which all designing and drawing preparations are done.
