The Design Build Process

Brown Design Group has completed a variety of projects over the years from commercial bid installations, to residential construction designed and bid by others, to design only work. We found that our best work was done when we designed and built the projects ourselves. Therefore, this will be the foundation for our company and all future work. We will only design work that we intend to build and we only install work that was designed by us.

It is our belief that the design and the construction of your landscape should complement one another. The traditional construction process inadvertently separates owners, designers and builders in ways that distract from the original vision for the project. Focusing on a more holistic process, Brown Design Group offers you greater skill, knowledge, and experience. Our integrated approach provides you with a pleasant experience, a well-designed space, the fulfillment of your vision, and the ability to enjoy your lifestyle investment sooner.

Your experience is important to us. Brown Design Group believes a personal approach is essential to your project's success and your happiness. We offer one designer who will work directly with you through the entire design, build, and care of your project. Open communication allows a trusting relationship to develop between you and our company. You will be assured that the details of your project will be carefully integrated from one phase of the project to the next and that the design’s integrity will not be sacrificed. You will also have peace of mind knowing your designer is responsible for the whole project.

Our designers are all graduate landscape architects, who also have an in depth knowledge of field construction. Designing landscapes with a working knowledge of construction, provides you a professional level of design that surpasses traditional Landscape Architecture design only firms.

Your vision will be the focus of our initial meeting. Our designer will help you develop your ideas into a design by offering advice and expertise in regards to design elements, material selection, final layout, and project budget. Once the plan is complete your designer will work hand in hand with our skilled craftsmen to construct your design, keeping the original intent of the project in mind.

We can ensure that you will enjoy your new space sooner and with greater overall comfort. Utilizing our comprehensive approach to design, build and care benefits our clients in every way. We know how to build, the costs associated and how to turn a challenge into an opportunity. This fundamental knowledge of construction paired with our design skills allows us to craft designs that are professional and realistic. We are able to design your project closer to your budget the first time, as we know the cost to build it. During construction, we are able to avoid guesswork and costly mistakes because we know why a project was designed in a certain way. Our approach moves fluidly from design to build. There is no time waiting on construction bids, design revisions and change orders. Taking responsibility for the entire project allows us to serve you in a more efficient and expedient way. As a result, we save you time and money as well as provide you the opportunity to enjoy your new outdoor space sooner.
