Garden Design Process

The garden design process begins with listening. As the dream for your garden unfolds, onsite conversations help to discover the unique constraints and assets of your property. DabneyCollins’ lead designer works with estimators, horticulturists, and finishing designers through several revisions to present your final design with a timeline to honor your budget and schedule.

As the construction process ensues, DabneyCollins’ project manager communicates with you to set expectations regarding the type and timing of work based on a project schedule. Working with the highest quality materials, the best horticultural practices, and the most experienced craftsmen, DabneyCollins’ gardens are built with meticulous detail. Upon completion, a detail crew white-gloves the garden, checking every system and removing all traces of construction activity. 

Now it is time for the finishing touches, including furniture and integral garden accessories such as planters, lanterns, and gates. Finishings correlate to the style and architectural references of the house. Timeless furniture, an unobtrusive sound system, and elegant lighting create a feeling of welcome, extending the safety and enjoyment of your outdoor spaces beyond the daytime and into the night.

If there ever was a company that exceeded our hopes and expectations, it is DabneyCollins. Never having worked with them before we didn't know what to expect. In all honestly, they blew us away! Having gone through construction and landscaping in our various moves, we had some idea how the project should go... well were we wrong! This company does it better, faster and more professional than any other we have EVER worked with. Every worker was kind, courteous and professional. We enjoyed the process! (Not something we have ever said before!) I can not recommend DabneyCollins enough. We are customers for life!!

My husband and I recently had DabneyCollins do a complete transformation to our landscape. We had serious drainage issues as well as hardscape repair in our back courtyard. In all our years of being homeowners, we can honestly say each and every person working on our project was an expert in the field, worked over and above our expectations, and have been professional at every turn. Our unique taste was incorporated into the beautiful garden design ideas - they attended to every detail - and continue to come by to check on the health of plants. I highly recommend this company. They are not only excellent at what they do but are good people. A winning combination to be sure!

DabneyCollins just completed an extensive landscape project for our entire yard. From the very start they were very easy to work with, came up with creative ideas, and spend a lot of time planning everything in advance. Once they arrived to actually do the work they worked 5 days a week from 8 until 6 pm Monday through Friday. They did not leave our project until everything was completed. When I would go home at lunch the supervisor would stop whatever he was doing and give me an update and ask any questions. Changes along the way were handled quickly and often if I added a detail that morning by the time I got home at lunch they were already working on it. Wonderful experience...I could not be happier!
