PHILIP J. MAGGI
Philip has been interested in gardening since growing up in Kent, Connecticut, where he spent most weekends with his father planting and tending to perennials beds, repairing century-old stone walls and caring for a half-acre vegetable garden.
He approaches landscape design by combining the uniqueness of each site and the surrounding architecture with the people who will be experiencing the space. He listens closely and works with clients to design solutions that reflect their personal style. Through the use of clean lines and a broad palette of plants, Philip creates distinctive spaces that enhance the way people live and enjoy their homes.
Philip received his formal education in landscape design at the George Washington Universit College of Professional Studies in Washington, D.C. He is an active member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) and the Ecological Landscape Alliance (ELA).
Designing an outdoor space is a process with three distinct phases. As you begin to consider such a project, here's a snapshot of what you can expect:
Initial Consultation: We will meet at your property for an initial consultation that generally lasts about an hour. During this meeting, we'll tour the property, review existing site conditions, take photos, and discuss your needs and preferences.
Concept & Design: This is the creative part. Once we fully understand your must-haves, we'll conduct a site analysis including measurements, take detailed photographs, and provide a proposed layout for your garden including - outdoor living areas, lawn and open space, planting beds and hardscapes. Before starting this phase, we'll estimate the time and cost of getting us to a conceptual design and final plan.
Installation: Once we've finalized the design, we will provide a preliminary plan and budget for transforming our design into reality. We will be on-site throughout the entire process to answer questions and ensure work is performed to specification and your satisfaction. Any modifications will be discussed with you in advance to ensure there are no surprises.
