| The Process
How new exterior environments become
Gathering – Interviews are conducted with
customers to understand their lifestyles, their desires for
their homes, and their visions for their new outdoor environments.
To help customers visualize their ideas, they are shown varieties
of plants at nurseries and different kinds of stones and other
materials at suppliers’ locations.
Planning – Richard
Burns develops overall concepts and specific forms for the
new outdoor environment.
After he shares his ideas with customers and makes any necessary
adjustments, work can begin.
Implementation – Master craftsmen utilize the finest
natural materials and plants to build the new environment with
the greatest structural integrity. Richard supervises and retains
responsibility for every element and every phase of planting
Completion – Richard carefully makes final adjustments,
adds finishing touches, and tests all systems. Then, he carefully
walks customers through and demonstrates every portion of the
project. He only approves completion when the entire project
exceeds the customers’ expectations.
