A customized landscape design from Island Ground Designs includes an in-depth, on-site consultation of your landscape needs, goals, materials, budget and dreams.
The complete design includes a customized Colour Concept, 2 copies of Working Drawings, i.e. Planting Plan, Plant List and Specifications.

Tree and Plant Care
IGD practices Plant Health Care, a concept of preventive maintenance to keep plants in good health, which helps defend against insects, disease and site problems (ISA). This concept takes into consideration site exposure, soil conditions, water and nutrient availability and plant resistance/susceptibility to insects and diseases.
Island Ground Designs provides Arboriculture Services, i.e. tree and shrub pruning (to 20' heights) and Plant Health Care: plant health assessments (woody ornamentals), recommendations for pruning and fertilizing.
Island Ground Designs will take your custom designed plan and install any portion of the design you choose. If you choose to do your own installation, Island Ground Designs can provide you with detailed diagrams and materials lists to make your installation as straightforward as possible.
The Consultation is the first step of the Landscape Design process - an in-depth, on-site discussion of your landscape needs, goals, materials, budget and dreams. The second Consultation takes place upon completion of the Colour Concept, a visualization of your completed garden design - a communication tool for exchanging ideas. The third Consultation includes a detailed list of materials for both softscape (plants) and hardscape.
IGD also provides Consultations to the homeowner looking for ideas to design his or her own landscape.
Consultations are also available to those who require plant health assessments, recommendations on pruning, fertilizing and disease control.
