Landscape Design

A landscape design should be both visually pleasing and functional. In addition, it should offer pleasure to the homeowner, enhance curb appeal and add to the property’s resale value. Let Oasis Landscapes & Irrigation show you how we can have your site live up to its complete potential. From meandering paths through formal and informal niches in your little slice of nature, to the sounds of water gently cascading over stacked stone. Our professional team of landscape designers and architects will provide you with a plan that fits your budget as well as your lifestyle. Our plant material choices are the best quality in the southeastern region. We choose colorful foliage as well as blooming flowers that will bring visual interest to every season.

Create a Design that Fits Your Needs & Your Budget

When you begin planning the landscape around your home, think about the entire space and the overall effect you want to achieve. Don’t limit your ideas to trees, shrubs, and grass. Consider a patio, deck, water feature, screening wall, outdoor lighting, or a new walkway as possible landscape features. It is important to consider a realistic budget for your landscaping project. We can help create a plan that not only meets your needs and wants but also fits within your budget. Oasis has a highly-skilled team of landscape designers and horticulturalists that can meet with you to discuss your vision. On-site consultation visits start at $60 per hour with the first hour free of charge. These detailed drawings are created to scale with plant choices, arrangements, and features based on your lot dimension, house placement, and project scope. Plans range in cost from $350-$1250 depending on the size of your project and its complexity.

Give Your Yard the “Wow Factor” with a new Landscape Design from Oasis
Whether you’ve just moved into a new home and want to add some pizzazz to the existing landscaping, or you want to renovate and refresh old, tired landscaping in the home you’ve lived in for years, there are many good reasons to spruce up your yard with a new landscape design from Oasis Landscapes & Irrigation. A well-designed home landscape is aesthetically appealing, serves as an inviting setting for relaxing and entertaining guests, reduces water usage, protects the environment, and lowers the energy costs of heating and cooling your house. It also maximizes your home’s resale value, should you be in the market for selling your property. The professional designers at Oasis Landscapes & Irrigation would be happy to design a customized landscape plan for your house. From meandering paths through formal and informal niches in your little slice of nature, to the sounds of water gently cascading over stacked stone, our team of landscape designers and architects will provide you with a plan that fits your budget as well as your lifestyle. Arranging a design consultation is the first step. Your project begins with an on-site design consultation. Oasis has a highly-skilled team of landscape designers and horticulturalists who are ready to meet with you to discuss your goals and preferences, and find out exactly what you hope to achieve with your yard. For instance, are there particular views you want to block or retain in your backyard? Are there specific problems you would like addressed, such as a steep slope you’d like minimized or an overgrown area on your property that needs some thinning out? Would you like to create an area for a vegetable garden, dog run, children’s playground area or picnic area? Do you want relatively maintenance-free foliage or do you enjoy doing landscape maintenance? Do you prefer certain types or colors of flowers and shrubs? Our landscape designers will address these types of concerns and desires with you. During the consultation, we will also go over your budget and desired time frame for completion of the project, do a thorough walk-through of your property, and conduct a complete site analysis, which includes soil testing, taking photos of the property, and measuring existing structures and landscaping. An on-site consultation starts at $60 per hour, with the first hour free of charge.
Think about what you want—before your consultation.
To produce the results you envision, you will need to think carefully about what you’d like to accomplish in your new landscape design and which types of plants you’d like to place where—before you meet with our designers. We recommend you create a diagram showing where you’d like to place certain design elements within your allotted space. It is important to not put in more items than your yard can reasonably hold, and a diagram can help you determine what you can and can’t fit into your available space. Having a diagram ready to show our designers also helps you communicate to us exactly what you do and don’t want in your design. Always try to keep the overall architecture of your yard in mind. This includes key landscaping elements such as large trees, fountains, patios, hedges and fences. These are the “bones” of your yard, and will define what types of outdoor activities particular areas in your yard can be used for. They also serve as structural borders and boundaries for your garden, while protecting your plants from wild animals and adding privacy to your space.
We will turn your desires into a customized landscape plan.
After the initial on-site consultation, our designers will leave you with some ideas and suggestions for your yard and a cost estimate for implementation of the project. Once we have your approval to go further, our designers will then develop a comprehensive landscape plan for your property. Depending the complexity and size of the project, the landscape plan may take several days or weeks to complete. Plans range in cost from $350 to $1,250. When designing your landscape plan, we will take into account such factors as your family’s lifestyle, sun and wind exposure on your property, existing trees and shrubs, soil conditions, space limitations, water drainage, slope of the land, agricultural pests and diseases in your area, the level of maintenance desired, and any community or subdivision restrictions. We will strive to create a landscape plan that fits within your budget, both in terms of initial installation costs and long-term maintenance. Our landscape plan will include a detailed, drawn-to-scale map of your house and land with the proposed landscaping features (plants, trees, shrubs, etc.) and “hardscaping” (man-made) elements (such as walkways, sitting areas, pergolas and arbors, patios, decks, terraces, retaining walls, berms and water features), along with overlays for irrigation and lighting. We will also provide perspective drawings showing what your yard will look like when completed, a list of suggested plants and materials to be installed, and a planting plan. We select the only the very best quality plants found in the southeastern United States. Aesthetics is important, which is why we try to choose colorful shrubs, trees and grasses, as well as blooming flowers that will bring visual interest to every season. In general, we recommend Zone 7 shrubs and trees, which offer the highest level of hardiness for the North Georgia climate. After you’ve reviewed and approved the plans, we will coordinate all aspects of the landscaping project including selection and delivery of plants and materials, project layout, and supervision of all those involved in implementation of the project. Our crews install all of our landscapes to the highest construction standards, and we offer warranties on all work we perform.
