MASTER PLAN

Site Analysis

We always start by assessing the project parameters, site opportunities and challenges. We’ll discuss how you want to experience your outdoor space and live in it every day, and will help you determine a practical wish list for your garden.

MASTER PLAN

Project Coordination

Whether redesigning a garden or building a custom home, it pays to involve Fox Whyte early in the planning process. We liaise with all consultants to ensure design unity and the most efficient workflow. Our goal is to create the best functional plan, with particular attention to the environment.

MASTER PLAN

Site Plan and Design Concept

We’ll present a coloured plan for your site, drawn to scale, along with preliminary grading, sample inspiration images and hand-drawn concept and perspective sketches to give us a way to talk about possible ideas before design refinement. You’ll review possible materials along with an estimated project budget.

Design Refinement

With your feedback, Fox Whyte makes any adjustments to the plan, design and materials, and presents a final master plan and budget for your approval. Our goal is to make everything within your property boundaries, even hidden corners, beautifully reflect the life you lead, with innovative use of materials and bespoke details that make it special.

CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS


As good design involves more than aesthetics, Fox Whyte’s construction documents ensure the long-term integrity of all technical and structural aspects – from grading to paving, pools and water features, woodwork to planting plans. Their level of detail supports more accurate specification and quoting.

Project Construction

Fox Whyte’s management expertise ensures that your project is successfully executed. We will oversee bids and coordinate with contractors, at every phase, from demolition and site preparation, to installation of hardscaping, water features and fire pits, irrigation and lighting, planting and sodding, all the way to the selection of seasonal plantings.

FINISHED LANDSCAPE


How the built space looks is essential. But equally important is how it works – not only on the ground plane, but above and beneath the surface. Fox Whyte’s multi-dimensional approach includes the dimension of time, so that your garden offers lasting value and pleasure in all seasons. Our goal is always to create a valuable extension of your home, one that intersects with your life and vision.
