Step #1: Contact Us.
Then, we meet on site and discuss your likes, dislikes, and problem areas.
In our time handling client projects, this is the hardest step to take. Folks are worried about the price and time investment to make their project a reality, but with The Ground Crafter, we try to make this process stress-free and fun. Our site visit and consultation is absolutely free, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t reach out to see how The Ground Crafter can help you on your project.
Past Ground Crafter clients were just like you – looking for help on improving their home and yard. We are here to provide that assistance.
“I like this picture I saw on The Ground Crafter website and feel that it represents the kind of landscaping I want.”
“We just don’t have the time or desire to maintain a bunch of landscape beds. Please keep this in mind when you’re designing...”
“...when it rains, the back yard floods and we would like our downspouts to drain the water away from the house”
Step #2: Let’s Put A Plan Together.
The Ground Crafter is going to give you a few ideas and professional opinions that come to mind upon our first visit together. It is our pleasure to consult with you and we sincerely hope that you’ll gain some knowledge and insight about your landscape goals and problems you may be having. In most cases, our clients take the next step and request that we generate a landscape design for them. This is a more thorough and informative way to communicate our ideas to you while merging them with yours. Depending on the scope of the project, there may be a design fee associated with this service.
Step #3: Time For The Really Fun Stuff.
Now that you’ve decided to move forward with The Ground Crafter for installation services, all further consultation and professional services are included. Ready to break ground on your new outdoor lifestyle? Us too! But before that happens there are important things that need to happen including more in-depth detailing and drafting, final planning and site analysis, Construction Documentation and visits to stone yards and other vendors to pick your favorite materials. Pending the scope of your project, 3-Dimensional Studies will be prepared to bring our ideas to life. Step #3 is where we’ll hammer out the final proposal with installation costs. Once everything is a “go” then timing is discussed and a formal contract will be prepared for signatures.
Step #4: Time To Break Ground.
We feel that our installation crews are the best in the business. Being the best means we take every precaution to protect your property and sanity while we’re there. We understand what it’s like to to be a consumer having work done around the house and our goal in this regard is to prevent any unnecessary disruption of your daily routine. The Ground Crafters will be courteous and professional at every level and you’ll know where we are in the process at the end of each day. Whether we are on your property for one day or several months, the construction and project manangement phase will be focused and as seamless as possible.
Step #5: Ensuring Your Peace Of Mind.
Nearing the end of construction signals the ‘happening’ . This is the crux of why we are in the business of creating cool and comfortable outdoor environments. For all of us at The Ground Crafter, there is nothing quite like realizing clients’ dreams with them and experiencing the joy of their new ‘digs’. It is of utmost importance to us that the project is left completed, with no stones left unturned and resembling all that was expected and more. Your complete satisfaction is backed by our proven integrity and willingness to make sure you’re 100% satisfied. By popular demand, the final product always comes with The Ground Crafter Landscape User‘s Guide. This is a manual filled with all the information you need to take care of your investment. There will be sections on: How to water; How to Fertilize; How to Set Your Lighting Timer; How to Protect your Natural Stone or Paver Patio, etc., all of which is customized to your project! Have a question or concern about ‘something that just doesn’t look right’ a year down the road? We find that it’s our obligation and it is written in our contract to come out, take a look , and fix anything under warranty, for free, and in a timely manner.
