Brilliant Design - Elegant Solutions

…classically based… inspired… a refined elegance that is unmistakable.

Our Design Process

Designing your landscape is a personal journey. Marotte Landscape Design can show you how to make it easy & enjoyable! Here's an abbreviated look at what you can expect:

Initial Consultation

Each project begins with a complimentary (Free!) meeting that allows us to discuss your design objectives and concerns. We take the time during this meeting to get to know you so we produce the results you desire.

Letter of Agreement

Before moving forward with the process, our clients receive a written confirmation signed by both parties that outlines the overall project scope and associated fees.

Concept Sketches & Landscape Plan

Using the information gathered from the initial interview, we develop a design solution that meets your needs and showcases your personal style, including a preliminary cost estimate.


We further develop the design solution as needed with more detailed floor plans, lighting plans, elevations and sketches. We also recommend a selection of finishes, materials, furnishings, amenities and lighting that fit into the overall design plan and are priced within your budget.

Resources / Scheduling

Our clients have access to a team of the best and most reliable tradesmen, artisans and professionals in the industry. This ensures that the work is completed to the highest standards with the utmost attention to detail and quality. We keep each project on schedule and coordinate with the entire team to ensure that all ordering, delivery and installation is seamless and worry-free.

Continuing our Relationship

We want our clients to love their new design, down to the smallest detail, because your satisfaction is our success. We value the trust you put in us and the relationship that develops. We are committed to assist you as your design needs change and evolve.
