After designing over 300 yards the last few years we have boiled down all of that experience into what we saw as the hardest, yet most crucial part of the design process: “explaining the final design and vision to the client”. Now this is not a knock against our clients (you are an A+ bunch), however, taking all of the images that the designer sees in his/her head and then reducing those images to a 2D drawing leaves many concepts lost in translation…no matter how thorough the design notations are. That is why we have shifted away from offering the option of getting either a 2D or a 3D computer rendering and instead are offering only the full package now. That is, 2D take off plans (hardscape, planting, and lighting) and the fully rendered 3D model of the design. Client understanding, and project success have been continually achieved and exceeded once the full 2D and 3D package was given to a client and/or contractor. To improve the customer experience even more we have added onto our software capabilities and now deliver the 3D design in photo real renderings with both a daytime setting and nighttime setting so the client can see what their landscape lighting will do when the sun goes down. This capability is the next generation of landscape design.
