Landscape & Construction Process


 

GETTING STARTED

Creativity, hands-on experience and an eye for detail are just a few of the factors that make our landscape design and installation services stand above the rest in Oklahoma. Regardless of the type and size of your property, we’ll create an impressive outdoor environment you will cherish.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION MEETING

Your project will start with a Red Valley Landscape & Construction Consultant and Project Manager meeting with you at your home or business. We will review the layout and initial set of construction plans, and answer all of your questions. All notes from the meeting will be documented by the Consultant for inclusion in the master plan. The pre-construction phase will be complete upon the procurement of permits and HOA approval, if necessary.

CONSTRUCTION

For the upcoming weeks, your home or business will be overrun with Red Valley staff and construction equipment. The most skilled workforce in the industry will treat your job as if it were their own. The following information will describe the build process. We want you to be thrilled and educated throughout the process, so feel free to ask questions at any time. Your Red Valley Team is here for you.

 


 

01

HARDSCAPE & CONSTRUCTION 

By now, your plans have been approved, permits have been secured, and the Red Valley Team is ready to make your dream come true. The excavating process begins for your construction project. First, we spray paint the outline of your patio and structures. Next, using transits, engineering equipment and excavation equipment, we will begin the excavation for your patio, piers and outdoor living structure. Once we have the patio grades shot, we will reroute all drainage and run any underground utilities needed for your project. Finally, we are ready to pour your patio and begin the next phase of your project.

 


 

02

STONEWORK & MASONRY SERVICES

This is the point where your project really starts to take shape. Our stonemasons will begin building your fireplace, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, seat walls, columns and any other stonework that pertains to your project. This phase could take several weeks depending on the scope of work. The masonry work performed by Red Valley staff is second to none, and the masonry phase is where many projects truly begin to come to life. At this point we may be able to enhance the overall project by making changes according to how the stone masonry is taking shape. Such changes often require no additional costs, so please feel free to talk to our staff and ask questions if you have any ideas or would like to inquire about making changes to the project.

 


 

03

GRADING & CLEAN UP

At this point we are ready to start cleaning things up and determining the final grades for your landscape. Once we have removed all trash and construction debris, we will bring in topsoil as needed in order to backfill, level out your property where needed, and create the final grades for your landscape.

 


 

04

IRRIGATION & DRAINAGE

With your Red Valley project starting to take shape, the irrigation and drainage phase of the project is often one that is not valued as much as it should be. However, this phase is actually very important to the long-term health and success of your landscape. Our irrigation crews will come in and start modifying your sprinkler system to fit your new landscape. We may be installing drip irrigation to pots, adding bubblers to your new trees or adding pop up heads to your beds and lawn – whatever your unique landscape needs. We take into consideration the best possible way to minimize the waste of water, and are also putting the final touches on your drainage system at this time. At this point of the project we will also have our lighting crews come in and start running the wire for your landscape lighting.

 


 

05

LANDSCAPE INSTALLATION & LIGHTING

This part of the project is what most people truly enjoy watching. Our landscape crews will excavate some of the existing soil and add rich landscape mix to your beds. At this point we begin installing your large and ornamental trees. The next step is where we plant your shrubs, perennials and groundcovers. Once everything is planted, we will start mulching the beds.

 


 

06

FINAL DETAILS

Now that the project is about 90% completed, the final details will be added. This part of the project is where many other landscape companies fail to finish the job properly – and thus fail to meet their customer’s expectations. At Red Valley we are focused on the final details of your landscape project – planting the seasonal color, installing the light fixtures for your landscape lighting, checking the sprinkler system one last time and thoroughly cleaning up your property to leave it looking even better than when we started.

 


 

07

FINAL WALK THROUGH

By now you are starting to plan the arrangement of your patio furniture and dreaming of summer nights outside with your outdoor living area and landscape. Your Red Valley Landscape Consultant will walk you through the entire project. At this point we can also provide you with a proposal to maintain and protect your investment. We offer many different services that you can ask your Landscape Consultant about – and we are always here to help you with all of your landscape needs.
