The design process cannot be underestimated. each project begins with establishing a sturdy foundation, upon which all preceding steps rely. over several stages, the design transforms from rough conceptual sketches and ideas to rich color renderings, and finally detailed cad drawings and full landscape construction documents. during each step of this process, client and designer meet to review, discuss and revise before moving forward. Specializing in custom urban landscapes including roof decks, terraces, courtyards and entry gardens blondie’s transforms concept and vision into realized functional design.
Blondie’s designers draw from numerous sources to develop creative landscape designs for challenging urban spaces. New York’s concrete jungle has no shortage of unique and specialized spaces to mold and shape into truly special outdoor planted spaces.
Our designs express the client’s vision and are delivered ready to be built- without requiring costly changes or elaborate translation. We adhere to established industry best practices, and our plans can be carried out smoothly by the professional landscape contractor of the client’s choice.
Embracing an open, collaborative approach to landscape design can be an effective way to avoid problems later in the project. Landscape projects frequently involve multiple parties responsible for different elements of the project. A Landscape Architect may design the project, a General Contractor is in charge of other construction trades, a Roofer may be involved, as well as subcontractors and specialty trades. All of these players have their own voice and own way of doing things, and a project can risk getting off track if the planning phase doesn’t involve all key players. It’s essential for everyone to know their role and responsibility, as well as what’s expected of them and what their responsibilities entail. Coordination is key for everyone- Designers, contractors and owners.
Finding the right landscaping company is integral to the overall success of your landscaping construction project. It’s important to find a landscape contractor with the skills, experience and ability to complete your project. Blondie’s partners each of our projects with a dedicated team and project manager, so no matter what phase of the project, you know who’s in charge, and have a consistent point of contact who knows your job inside and out.
