You’ve long dreamed of what your ideal landscape would look like. Gazing out onto your property, you’ve imagined how a rustic-yet-refined outdoor patio would work over here, or how a small pond, featuring a waterfall and surrounded by reeds, might look over there. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally have spaces for entertaining family and friends, or for enjoying nature in peaceful contemplation? By working with Alfresco by Paul Burd, any landscape design ideas you’ve had over the years can now become a reality. Paul works with each client on an individual basis to develop landscape designs that are perfect for each person’s preferences and their singular environments. By calling on knowledge acquired throughout his years of experience in the field, Paul Burd works to create plans that integrate design elements that also enhance the natural beauty of the area. Paul’s signature designs have helped him cultivate a well-earned reputation for excellence throughout West Michigan; his unparalleled mastery of design and his commitment to only the best craftsmanship will be fully evident in the landscape design he creates for you.
The first step toward achieving the landscape of your dreams is sitting down with Paul to explain the goals you have for your property. During this initial phase, clients speak to Paul about their landscaping desires, a process that helps him determine the best course of action for executing and implementing those requests. Paul also visits every space that he and his team intend to work on. Doing so provides him with both a better idea of how a client’s wishes can best be realized within the landscape, while also making him aware of any features of the property which could require special consideration in relation to the intended results of the design plan.
Pen to Paper
After establishing a firm design plan with the homeowners, Paul can begin to put pen to paper, creating the designs that will ultimately result in a breathtaking landscape that is utterly unique. The design process is where Paul’s 20-plus years of experience in the industry truly shines. His illustrations detail every aspect of any job he and the Alfresco team plan to undertake, and serve not only as perfect blueprints that account for every element large and small, but also as beautiful art pieces suitable for framing. The level of craft he employs in any landscape design project he embarks on is apparent in every illustration he produces.
Once Paul has completely drafted his design for your landscape, it’s time for him to share it with you for a final review. At this stage, both you and Paul go through every aspect of the proposed design with a fine-toothed comb to ensure that every element on the page matches up with the intended final result in the landscape. Any revisions or changes to the design are made during this stage. Once both parties are satisfied and you have signed off on the final design choices, the landscape of your dreams is that much closer to becoming a reality.
