Every beautiful landscape is born from a conceptual design. Our experts at Red Valley Landscape & Construction understand that beautiful and balanced aesthetics begin with the fundamental and sound principles of design. With a design team that specializes in bringing forth a commercial client’s needs and projecting it onto visual media, the Red Valley design team can solidify a client’s desire into a visual reality so that it can be further molded, refined and streamlined into a finalized draft. From 3-D modeling to two-dimensional aerial views or even free-hand sketching, our artists and designers can tap into a client’s imagination to create their building’s exterior oasis.
Design is our first step in the sophisticated process behind every detailed plan conceived for each and every commercial client. We tailor every project to each client, taking into account their needs and budget while trying to maximize their investment.
In addition, we take a horticultural approach to our commercial landscape design and are dedicated to conserving natural resources as well as managing costs and giving you the most value for your money. We are also experts at anticipating and resolving problems before they arise, which helps to keep costs down and keep your property functioning at its best. While it’s true that most places will support some type of plant life, it isn’t necessarily true that every plant will grow in your particular landscape.
Plants are like humans, they have particular environmental requirements and might not be happy just anywhere. Temperature is one of the most important aspects of that environment, so it’s the logical starting point in choosing your plants. Because temperature is an element we can’t control, we consider plants that can survive what nature provides us at your site.
It’s important as well to take into account that conditions can vary widely even within the same landscape. Plants in sheltered locations may survive extreme freezes, while plants exposed to the too-rapid warming of early morning sunlight in cold weather may not. In short, your commercial landscape is likely to present extremes within the same swath of land. We can recognize those issues up front and select the best-suited plants for your distinctive areas.
Upon handling the installation of your commercial design, we will also take into consideration the soil content and your particular plant’s possible reaction. Soil is literally the foundation for your landscape design and installation, the beginning for all that follows. Our designers at Red Valley Landscape & Construction understand area soils, their properties, as well as your plant’s potential reception to it. Different area soils will often include particles with different nutrient and water retention capacities to consider such as clays, silts and sands. We know how to acclimatize your plants gradually so that they progressively harden to adverse conditions and soils, taking time to expose them to cold, heat, bright light or wind a little at a time.
How well your commercial landscape grows and thrives will depend largely on the fertility of the soil that is provided for them. Generally the darker the soil, the more fertile it is. Even this can be variable, however, and only testing can truly determine your soil’s fertility. Red Valley understands how to interpret the makeup of your soil accurately and adapt your design to plants that will flourish and prosper for years to come.
