Consultation

Your new beautiful landscape starts off with a free consultation service. LDS will meet with you in person to get a better understanding of your needs and desires for your outdoor living space. LDS will provide their expertise on what will work and be the best fit.

Site Planning/Analysis

A detailed site analysis will be conducted by LDS at this stage. We will look at various elements within your landscape such as the sun exposure, predominant wind patterns, topography, drainage, soil type, circulation, as well as existing vegetation and structures. All of these factors inform the location and types of plants that will be best suited for your micro climate. LDS will also obtain measurements at this time.

Design

Design

Based on the information gathered in the consultation and the site analysis, LDS will begin to draw up a to-scale conceptual design with a suggested plant palette. LDS will be working closely with the client at this time to ensure that the client is satisfied with what LDS has come up with.

Installation

Once the client and LDS have both agreed on the design, LDS will proceed with the installation phase of the project. During this phase, LDS will pay careful attention to plant needs and will apply soil amendments and fertilizer’s where needed to ensure plants are given the TLC they need in order to get established successfully.

Permaculture Design

Lupine Design Studio can transform your landscape into an aesthetically pleasing cornucopia of delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs. Permaculture, which stands for ‘permanent agriculture’ mimics the natural, symbiotic relationships that happen in nature while maintaining the delicate balance and viability of an ecosystem. As a result, permaculture gardens require less water, less maintenance, and are more productive than a traditional landscape. Permaculture gardens or rather ‘Food Forests’ are made up of a hierarchy of plants including ground covers, nitrogen fixers, pollinating flowers, shrubs, and trees that work symbiotically to create a sustainable microcosm in your own backyard providing food, shelter and long term benefits to the health and vitality of this planet.
