1. Initial Consultation
Local clients: we begin by scheduling an initial consultation with you on-site, at the project's location. During this meeting we will discuss the scope of the project and your individual wants and needs. On site, we will do a walk-through of your property to gain a better understanding of the space. We will identify opportunities and challenges and discuss options for the next step in the design process.
3. Measurements, Survey, & Site plan
After the contract has been signed and approved, we will arrange a visit to the project site to take detailed measurements and photographs for reference purposes. This may have already been completed at the initial design meeting.
5. Construction Documents & Plans
After the design concept is finalized and approved, you can chose to purchase the technical schematics of the project. We can create swimming pool build plans, hardscape plans, landscape and lighting plans.
If you are in the Florida area and ready to build skip to the next step.
2. Our Contract
Using the information gathered at our meeting, we will create a conceptual design agreement for you. This will cover the scope of the design and estimated design fee for you to review and approve.
4. Design Conceptualization
During this stage we go to work to create visual aids that will help you visual your project. We will create and present full-color, realistic renderings and virtual walk-through videos of your space. This step is helpful to see your project before construction even begins and really let's you experience the possibilities of design. We put together the concept, plants & material lists, and details which are all revised and finalized.

With your approval, your project may be added to our professional portfolio. We are happy to give you a copy of the photographs to enjoy!
Enjoy your new space!!
Sonja received five stars from me because she has an incredible ability to combine colors, textures and design to effect a beautiful outcome. She is professional, friendly, personable and just fun to work with. For our project, after talking with her, she understood exactly what I was interested in having. She is not afraid to suggest other options if she believes the same outcome could be achieved in a more efficient and economical way. I highly recommend her. - Paula & Vern
Sonja designed our outdoor living space, very large pool, sitting areas, BBQ area, fire pit and water feature. She had a plan, computerized drawings and budget. There is excellent execution and her attention to detail is superb. We plan to work with her on a phase 2. Don't miss the opportunity to get your design right the first time, she listened and then made it even better. - Laura & Jeff
