Landscape Design & Installation
The purpose of landscaping is to design a functional yet aesthetic outdoor room for use by the client. The objective is to meet the needs of the client as well as the needs of the environment.
Landscaping should be viewed as an investment, not as an expense.
All plant material must be sustainable and appropriate for the area in regards to tolerance levels and maintenance.
To accommodate client budgets, the landscape installation process can be broken into phases.
Communication is the key to success. Budget, design principles, client preferences, and functionality must be incorporated to achieve a successful design.
Clients are offered a variety of materials that can be used to suit their needs.
My goal is to achieve client satisfaction while creating a garden that provides a variety of texture and color as well as a sense of purpose.
Blue Bison Outdoors, Inc. specializes in selecting plant materials that will provide a balance of year round color and use.
A garden theme is established for each individual site and then the entire site is tied together with one unifying theme with the aide of plant material or landscape design principles.
Gardens can be designed as:
Each garden has unique plantings that separate it from the norm.
- Memory garden
- Honor garden
- Functional garden
- Cut flower garden
- Perennial garden
- Vegetable garden
- Herb garden
- Seasonal garden
- Conifer/evergreen garden
- Native plant species
- Exotic plant species
- Children’s play area
Words we want to hear and have heard before:
Conifer gardens are our specialty.
- Looks like it has been here forever
We enjoy the challenge of turning a once unusable piece of property into an extension of your home.
We want our clients to look forward to exploring and experiencing their new outdoor rooms.
We try to create a series of vignettes that will stimulate the senses in a variety of ways.
Water conservation is the key. We apply water to only target areas. The goal is to achieve the best coverage of water using the fewest heads possible. We emphasize to clients to water deep and infrequent. Do not make the plant become dependent upon you for water.
Design is the key to success. We zone beds according to plant water demand, site conditions such as shade or sun, topography, and soil conditions. We design the system to operate below maximum capacity to reduce the wear on the system and accommodate for future additions.
We specialize in drip irrigation systems which operate at low pressures and low volumes. Evaporation, runoff, and weed populations are minimized using this technique.
We will annually audit the system to check its efficiency and make any corrections necessary to insure proper operation.
We stay up to date with any local and state water regulations or restrictions so the client is protected from any unnecessary fines.
Pumping systems can be installed for clients who have access to surface water or need a boost for current well service.
We service all our irrigation installations.
Technical assistance is a phone call away.
