building on your investment

We design landscapes based upon your needs and input, we create and manage your project from start to finish.

We work with you/for you, the relationship and open communication is key for your projects success. We offer steady communication, we stay on schedule and inform you about the process so that you feel comfortable during the job process. We find our clients prefer this and believe that if we efficiently flow the information to you then we can respond to the projects needs promptly. Here is a quick step by step overview of “How we work”.



STEP 1 – Onsite Analysis & Consultation with Duane Feltz – Owner of DLF Landscaping. We are not a big company, but we’re effective, we take pride in our work and prefer to work with you one or one, or with someone that you have assigned to the job. No job is too big or too small. We’ll gain a clear picture of your objectives, wish list, and the demands of the site. We’ll make a pre-arranged visit to take measurements, photos and review the relevant issues of your property.

STEP 2 – Design Proposal We present our proposal for design work and review the Design Contract. We’ll go over the process in detail including project timelines. With your approval of the Contract we can move forward with the design development. …Deposit fee for design development (50%).

STEP 3 – Concept Plans Before we start, we make another appointment with you to review of the base plan and proposed design concepts. This is a great opportunity to give your input and discuss any necessary revisions. We’ll also provide an estimated cost for the proposed project, plus we let you know all of what you will need to do prior to our starting the job. ie: locates, permits etc…

STEP 4 – Project Coordination Unless we have pre-established our working relationship. We take care of the ordering your materials, securing locates and permits where needed, coordinating any specialty trades and reviewing your site for construction details. Everyone involved is well informed on the plan details to ensure a smooth flow during installation.

STEP 5 – Project Installation Our crews, equipment and foreman are on site and making it happen. We’ll make every effort to keep disruptions and mess to a minimum. We’ll provide weekly project reports so you’re always fully informed on the progress, and we can make sure you’re pleased with our work. Feel free to speak with your foreman at any time, or contact our office with any questions or comments if preferred.

STEP 6 – Project Assessment With the close of the construction phase, we’ll do a walk-through together to identify any issues, questions or unfinished items. Any incomplete items will be resolved promptly and before the project is considered complete.

STEP 7 – Project Completion We’ll meet again for a closure meeting once every detail is complete. This is always such a pleasure for us because it’s the point where our clients are newly aware of the wonderful enhancement to their home and their lives. …Presentation of final invoices.
