Landscape Design Process

Beautiful Yards
Are Built on a Firm Foundation.

Here’s How Our
Process Works.

At Patterson Yards, we work to make drafting professional landscape plans as simple as possible. Our goal is to save you time in the office, and the install crew countless field hours fumbling about due to plan misunderstandings. When our process comes together the way we draw it up, you and your clients will save time, money, and much needless stress.


Discovery & Package Selection

After verifying that we are a good fit for your team’s landscape design project, we will meet onsite virtually to collect any required site documents, measurements, and pictures.

Site Survey & Wish List Meeting

To better understand the desired project scale, the wants and needs of the homeowner, and any zoning/easement/HOA requirements, our design team will meet with you “onsite” via Zoom. During this meeting, we’ll go over the desired scale of your project while discussing anything and everything related to the vision that both you and your clients share for the new yard.

We’ll also ensure all plantings and styles match your local USDA zoning requirements.

Design Phase

Taking in all of the information we’ve learned up to this point, including existing site conditions, we’ll render a base model of the yard and begin drafting your first concept sketch. You’ll be presented with an artistic hand-drawn proof-of-concept before moving into 3D/CAD rendering.

Design Reveal

Our team will virtually walk you through a 2-dimensional concept of your design—along with estimated material/planting schedules. After revisions, we move to the final 3-dimensional and CAD renders.

If you chose the 3D rendering option, you and your team will be walked at eye level throughout the yard in a stunning 360 degree presentation. We find this drastically aids site foremen in the yards installation phase.

Design Finalization

Our team will apply your requested revisions to the design before creating the CAD-scaled concept documents needed for the install/build. We will then create full plant and material schedules so your crew knows exactly what they need.

We will integrate with your landscape management and estimation services to create winning proposals for you! Never worry you won’t bid profitably again.
