M.E. Contracting’s success is in large part a result of us insisting on excellent communication and transparency with the client.
When we work on any pool design and construction project we employ a simple yet effective step by step process to ensure the client & M.E. Contracting team are on the same page.
Our process can be broken down to the following steps:
Each and every prospective client will first have a “discovery” conversation with the project manager to discuss the general aspects of the project.
Once we understand the project’s general outline we will schedule an on-premise consultation.
At the time of consultation the project manager will meet with the home owners, learn about the client’s “ideal project”, their “must-have”, their ideas, needs and the budget they have.
We will take notes, pictures and measurements. We will exchange ideas then use the information collected to create an estimate to match the family’s lifestyle, needs and budget.
M.E. Contracting’s project manager will use the notes, measurements and pictures he took at the initial consultation to create a perliminary design.
The design will take into consideration all aspects: structures, grading, existing trees, client’s needs, budget etc.
Once the initial design is complete, the client will be presented with the layout where they are encouraged to provide feedback so a final revision can be prepared for quoting.
Once the initial “rough” design has been agreed upon we will again meet with the client to discuss the various elements that go into the project such as materials, colour options etc.
We will develop the estimate accordingly and schedule a meeting to present and discuss the estimate with the client.
Once the final estimate is approved we will start working on the permit.
Each city or municipality has its own requirements, bylaws etc. therefore time to receive the permit can vary greatly.
Once ready to go, M.E. Contracting will schedule the construction of the project, prepare the crews, machinery, materials etc.
We will have a foreman, a project manager and the landscaping designer all working together to stay true to the design, timeline and budget
There are a multitude of options when it comes to designing your landscape. Considerations such as space, as mentioned above, and budget, come into mind. While there are Toronto landscaping contractors who will offer you the most expensive option first, M.E. Contracting will lay them all out for you and let you choose what you want and are able to afford.
Types of landscaping design & construction we offer:
Softscape – Softscape is a term that takes into mind using what you may already have on hand in your home and yard to design or re-design your yard. It’s an economical choice because it uses things that already exist inside or outside your home, such as flowers, plants, shrubs, trees, and flower beds.
Hardscape – Hardscape is a relatively new term. It is often used by disreputable contractors to promote custom, expensive landscaping solutions. The part that they don’t mention is that the term, like softscape, is simply referring to things already on your property. It encompasses any hard surface, such as driveways, walkways, or patios.
M.E. Contracting has landscape designers who are ready to bring your dream of a lush, vibrant front or backyard to life.
