LANDSCAPE DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION

Grey Rock is dedicated to creating functional, sustainable and stunning landscapes in Northern Colorado. Our team is here to provide you with the ultimate design build experience from conception to completion. Learn more about our process below.

Living in Colorado is all about outdoor living. Nothing quite compares to a trip to the high country to take in the cool mountain air. Why can't your landscape be a similar type of retreat, designed to fit your lifestyle?

Choosing to invest in your property is a big decision. Let our team guide you through every step of the landscape construction process. We're here as a resource to help you make informed decisions to create a space you'll love. 

THE FIRST STEP IS YOUR VISION

LANDSCAPE DESIGN

This is the first step in turning your vision into a reality. We work with you to design a custom landscape, outdoor living space, or property feature that reflects who your are and your vision for your space.

1.

CONSULT

When you give us a call, our first step is getting to know you and understanding your project needs. During our design consultation, one of our team members will come walk your property with you. We'll listen to your ideas, budget and provide input from a design perspective. We'll do a comprehensive site analysis and take photos to aid in the design process.

CONSULT PACKET

After our initial consultation, we'll review the details and create a custom design report for your property. Our report will include a breakout of each unique area of your property and provide you with some potential ideas and themes for each space.

3.

CUSTOM LANDSCAPE DESIGN

Upon review of the Consult Packet, if you'd like to proceed, we will begin the formal design process. Our team will take your concepts to create a full set of plans for your landscape. Our design package will include layout documents, landscape materials and assembly details on the elements of your project. Learn more about our landscape design capabilities.

DESIGN & COST PROPOSAL REVIEW

Once we complete the first version of the design, we will send over the design package with your detailed cost proposal for review. We'll set up a meeting to review the details with you. This step typically includes a couple iterations as we collaberate to get all the details perfect for your project. We indicate the changes in your cost proposal so you're able to effectively track adjustments.

LANDSCAPE AGREEMENT

Once we're aligned on the scope, budget and landscape design details of your custom landscape, we'll send over the Landscape Agreement. This gives you time to review each line item once again and ask any additional questions. Once the agreement is signed, we'll get you on our schedule to complete your luxury outdoor living space.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION

This is where the behind-the-scenes logistics of a project comes together. During this part of the process, we'll take care of ordering materials, scheduling, logistics and ensuring your site is ready for our crews to create your outdoor living space. 

1.

MATERIAL PROCUREMENT

Think logistics. During this phase our team is hard at work securing the materials necessary to turn your design into a beautiful space you'll love. We strive to work with locally-owned vendors to keep our community strong and sustainable. 

2.

UTILITY LOCATES

Before work begins, we'll request for utilities on your property to be located. You'll see utility locators come out to install flags and markings, indicating where all public utility lines are located. Depending on your property, we may also perform private utility locates - These typically are needed if you have out-buildings, or electric or gas service to areas other than your house.

3.

PROJECT MEETING

Our team is dedicated to ensuring your custom landscape installation is seamless as possible. During the project meeting, our team will meet internally to discuss logistics, scheduling, deliveries and sequencing of work.
