About grounded

Our purpose is to create environments that enrich lives

And we are "grounded" in three things that help us realize this purpose:

 

Firstly, we are "grounded" in world-class design and construction. Our designers bring qualifications including PhDs, Masters and Bachelors Degrees in landscape architecture, design and horticulture. Our construction crews are passionate artisans that take pride in their work. Our processes and systems foster collaboration, knowledge sharing and continuous improvement so that we consistently deliver innovative landscapes that exceed our customers' expectations and set us apart in the marketplace. 

Secondly, we are "grounded" in ecology. Our expertise is centered on a deep awareness of the many factors that have to be considered when altering the ground. Whilst our landscape solutions bring people together and optimize the use of outdoor space we also are designing for enhancing soil health, restoring native ecosystems and supporting bio-diversity. 

 

Thirdly, we are "grounded" in our community. We are proud of living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and actively contribute to the health and beauty of our local communities. We take pride in supporting local non-profits such as the Beacon Food Forest and taking on pro-bono projects across the East Side.

Our Process

Our process consists of four key stages; initial consultation, design, contracting / scheduling, and construction. Throughout the process our strong customer orientation is evident in how we listen, respond and generally engage with our clients. This approach creates a shared sense of alignment and ownership for the project.

Consultation

1. Initial Consultation

A designer travels to the customer's home and assesses the land and listens to the vision and aspirations of the customer. The designer marries the customer's desires with the needs of the land to form a preliminary perspective of the project.

2. Draft Design

The designer maps the property and creates a comprehensive landscape design with the detailed plant and material break-down.  

3. Confirm Design
& Schedule Build

The designer and the customer meet to review the design and build break-down. If the customer decides to move forward with the project the contract is signed, a deposit is paid and then the work is scheduled.

4. Construction

Our professional construction crews complete the project and the designer remains the customer's sole point of contact throughout the work.
