Our Process

What is the Design-Build Process?

Design-build is a process of project delivery in which the designer, builder (Bradley Landscape) and owner work as a collaborative team throughout the life of a project. Some of the benefits of design-build include:

Faster Delivery

Collaborative project management means work is completed faster with fewer problems.

Cost Savings

An integrated team is geared toward efficiency and innovation.

Better Quality

Design-build approach meets performance and design expectations, not minimum design requirements, often developing innovations to deliver a better project than initially imagined.


One collaborative team is held accountable for providing solutions.

Decreased Administrative Burden

Owners can focus on the project rather than managing multiple contracts.


The design-build team assumes additional risk (not the client).

General Overview

We approach projects using a design-build process.

We design, build and maintain projects as a unified team; the builder (Bradley Landscape), designer and owner work collaboratively. With a single source of responsibility, we provide clients higher quality installations, improved schedule of completion and early identification of potential cost overages.

Every property (and client) is unique; thus selecting a custom landscape construction company is a crucial step in the process of transforming your property to meet your desired expectations.

We believe the design-build project delivery process melds dreams and ideas into a living reality. Our team embraces overcoming challenges as a collaborative team pertaining to your specific project. Let us turn your dreams into a beautiful landscape – one that you will enjoy and admire for years to come.

Design-Build Process Stages


Conceptual Design and Team Intro

Client meets designer who assist developing a conceptual design. Bradley Landscape is ideally involved with designer during this stage of design to provide input regarding material selection, cost alternatives, schedule and design layout.


Design Development

Our involvement at this stage prevents unnecessary time consuming communication (design clarification) between builder and designer at later stages of construction, which can result in schedule delays and increased cost. Our goal is to meet client’s budget and design expectations during conceptual design stages. We prefer to meet the client’s dream in relation to cost early on; assisting designer within those parameters.


Construction Document Plans

During this stage the designer finalizes design and provides construction plans. Plans typically have some level of ambiguity (e.g. path widths, countertop heights, layout etc.). The design-build team consults with client and works through construction details during construction instead of requesting RFI’s (Request for Information) from designer for plan revisions whenever a field construction clarification is required. Limiting RFI’s can greatly increase schedule of completion and minimize cost.


Construction Occurs

Construction occurs during this stage based on the agreed upon construction documents.

Once a project is complete and your garden comes to life, it’s important to consider how to maintain your investment.
