The Process

Our decades of professional landscaping experience has allowed us to cultivate a seamless process that ensures picture perfect results no matter the project. Each project we take on is executed with the goal of creating a unique outdoor space that makes our customers excited to spend time outdoors and brings joy to their living space.

Step 1: Consultation

Our team comes to your home ready to discuss your vision and hopes for the project in full detail. This includes discussions about your preferred style, your needs, and what you envision for the end result. Together, we will create a design that exceeds your expectations. Once we evaluate your space and discuss your project, including budget, we can move on to the fun part: design and 3D rendering.

Step 2: Landscape Design and 3D Rendering

We love making your vision come to life before we even break ground. Once you decide to move forward with Western Lehigh, our team will design your project, which includes hand-drawn design elements and a 3D rendering that provides lifelike detail to your project. This stage also includes a contracted price and breakdown of materials costs necessary to bring your project to fruition.

Through the use of our 3D design technology, you will be able to envision the design in greater detail and experience firsthand how your project will look when completed. We also welcome you to check out our plant material and display landscaping at our office and nursery location.

Step 3: Construction

Prior to construction, we research all local codes and permits and you will be informed of scheduling. We aim to make the installation process as smooth as possible, and we welcome your involvement every step of the way. Your questions are always welcome!

Step 4: Completion

After your project is completed, we always leave instructions and insight on how to best care for your landscaping. Our work is backed up by a one year peace-of-mind guarantee. We also offer future maintenance service to preserve your investment.
