Designing your Escape

It's all about you.

Whatever your preferred destination style – contemporary luxury, relaxed beach house, traditional elegance – or your property type – small, urban, mixed terrain – Cedar Springs has the expertise to transform it into a space at home that delivers the experience you're seeking.

Things to consider:

  1. What is your design style?
  2. What do you like to do outdoors?
  3. What do you like to do on vacation?
  4. What are the pros & cons of your property?
  5. What is your budget?

Here’s what you can expect:

A Cedar Springs rep will come and meet with you at your home for an initial consultation. We’ll discuss your general objectives, lifestyle, design ideas and budget expectations.
If you'd like us to move forward with a landscape design plan, we’ll put it in writing so that we don't miss any details and collect the design fee. (See note below.)
The design team will then make an onsite visit for measurements, grades and photos.
We then present you with a concept. Any needed revisions can be discussed and made. The final detailed renderings can be created.
Now that we know exactly what's involved in the building of your design, we can determine a quote for the landscape construction work and deliver it with your completed design drawings.

A note about our design service

At the completion of the design phase you will have fully customized prints of your new landscape plan, a colour master plan or 3-D rendering. Extensive detail is put into these plans so that during the construction phase there are as few unexpected issues as possible.

For this reason, we charge a fee for the design phase. Fees for designs range, based on the project size/complexity, from $1,000 for basic projects to $5000+ for more comprehensive projects. This pertains to landscape design in Oakville, Burlington and the surrounding areas. For more info, please contact our office.
