The 6 main stages of landscaping
1. Layout design
Designing a landscaping plan involves analyzing the characteristics of the land, taking into account environmental constraints and defining functional and aesthetic spaces adapted to your needs and desires.
A well-designed landscape plan must take into account sun exposure, soil type, topography and climate to ensure the longevity of plants and installations.
It is also essential to consider practical aspects such as accessibility, maintenance, stormwater management and any local regulations. Finally, a successful landscaping plan must reflect your style and personality, while respecting the harmony between the various garden elements and the architecture of your home.
2. Start of work, site excavation
Site excavation is a technical and essential step in preparing the ground for landscaping work such as building low walls, creating water basins, laying terraces or installing drainage systems.
This operation involves removing the top layer of earth, digging and moving volumes of soil to shape the terrain to the needs of the project.
Excavation must be carried out with care and precision to avoid damaging existing infrastructure, tree roots or underground networks. The use of professionals and appropriate equipment, such as backhoes or mini-excavators, is often necessary to guarantee safe, high-quality work.
3. Pool and/or spa installation
Pool and spa installation is a popular landscaping service. Installation requires careful planning and compliance with current safety standards.
It’s essential to choose the right location, taking into account sun exposure in the yard, proximity to trees, underground networks and accessibility constraints.
Harmonious integration of the pool or spa into your landscaping is also essential. Calling on pool and spa professionals is highly recommended to ensure the quality and durability of your installations. We’ll also ensure compliance with local and national regulations.
4. Paving and cobblestones
Laying pavers is the first step in creating aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting walkways, terraces, borders or parking areas.
Whether in concrete, natural stone or terracotta, pavers offer a wide variety of shapes, colors and textures. They allow you to personalize your outdoor space and adapt the style to the architecture of your home.
Laying pavers requires meticulous preparation of the ground, including levelling, laying a bed and an adequate drainage system to avoid problems of settling or water stagnation.
Installation must be carried out with precision, respecting installation rules and joints between pavers to guarantee the stability and longevity of the structure.
5. Layout of flowerbeds and plants
Laying out flowerbeds and planting plants are steps that bring life, color and texture to your garden.
It’s crucial to select plants suited to the climate, soil and light exposure of your outdoor space. We always remember to vary species, mixing trees, shrubs, flowers and grasses to create a harmonious and attractive landscape.
When planting, we respect the distances and specific needs of each plant to encourage their growth and blossoming.
6. Decoration and finishing
Decorating and finishing a landscaping project is the final touch that transforms an outdoor space into a welcoming, personalized place.
Decorative elements, such as sculptures, fountains, planters, lighting and outdoor furniture, help create a unique ambience and reflect your style.
Finishes such as edging, mulching and flooring ensure cleanliness and durability.
