Our Process

To say that we get close to our projects would be an understatement. That’s because our designs are not only inspired by your goals and objectives, they are also inspired by you. Our goal is simple. Create exterior spaces that our clients don’t simply see with their eyes, but their hearts as well. That’s why from start to finish, the design team at Scots is all about the details. It’s why communication with our clients every step of the way is not simply part of the process, it is the process. And it’s why we still know your name and phone number, and you still know ours, long after the project is complete.

Beginning with a personal site survey and consultation to outline objectives and goals, to the finished project review, the Scots design team makes creating wonderful exterior spaces that are a natural extension of your home or business quite easy.

Consultation

To begin the process, a member of the Scots Design Team will meet with you at your location to survey the area, and to help discuss your needs and goals for your new exterior space.

Development

After consultation and the survey of the area, a scaled design plan will be created for the space.

Review

At this time you can discuss any modifications to the initial design plan with your Scots Design Team. The design plan will be reviewed with you to ensure it meets your goals, including finish samples (pavers, decking, stone, tile, plant varieties, and more). If desired, finish samples can also be reviewed at a later time.

Installation

On your approval, the Scots Installation Team will implement the design under supervision of the Scots Architectural Designer. Your design team will ensure your exterior space exceeds your expectations through constant contact and on-site visits.

You Talk.

We Listen.

We Make It Happen.

You Fall In Love.

Installation

No matter how great a design idea is on paper, the true test of creativity is a well planned execution. That’s why an experienced team of professional installation contractors is part of every Scots architectural landscape design plan. Working closely with the Scots design team, the Scots installation team turn projects that are purely conceptual, into living, breathing reality. Their knowledge, skill and commitment to detailed craftsmanship and maintaining project schedules result in extraordinary spaces that are the hallmarks of the Scots reputation.
