"In 2008, we hired Kapa to develop a garden plan for our new (1909) house on 11th Street. Kapa really knows our local plants--their needs for sun and soil and water, and their color, size, and shape. She is creative in arranging plants, easy to work with, and dependable. Our needs and suggestions were carefully addressed at all times. We gave her lists of plants that we liked, and she worked them into our personalized plans. Her blueprints were fabulous to both visualize how the plantings worked with our hose and lot, and to guide our purchase of plants. Each section of our garden has some plants of interest year-round and plants from one section are repeated in another to give the garden an integrated feel. Our small city lot exploded with color in interest! In fact, in the summer of 2009, our garden was given an award. We did the work but Kapa provided the inspiration!
Whether you want to install the landscape, yourself or hire a landscape contractor, Kapa Korobeinikov will develop easy to work from, computer-drafted plans that fit your needs.
PERSONALIZED MASTER PLAN
if you have a new home or want a complete renovation of your yard, you will want a master plan. Your master plan will include: a layout plan, a planting plan, and detail sketches or photographs. A master plan consists of a layout plan, a planting plan, planting specifications, and conceptual sketches.
LAYOUT PLANS THAT FLOW
A layout plan is the floor plan for your yard. Patios, decks, sitting areas, planting beds, and walkways all create this plan. The shapes of these elements, the materials that are used, and how they relate to each other, create the style and determine whether the spaces flow smoothly.
A planting design helps you select plants that will thrive in your yard, showcase your personal preferences and goals; and fit the style of your house. A plant list and planting guidelines are also included.
