Site Measurements & Concept Drawing

Ottawa Landscape Planning- Site Measurements & Concept Drawing

Site measurements can be more accurate with a City approved site plan or Survey. We do know that providing this plan can sometimes be impossible so a full sight evaluation with measurements would have to be created. With any landscape design project that we undertake, we will analyze the existing grades, drainage, light, soil and site conditions. Every detail in the landscape design is considered important.

Our Design Consultants will take all the measurements required to create as accurate a new landscape plan as possible. Some of the measurements include:

  •           –  Measurements from the front of the house to the front of the property and from the back of the house to the back of the property.
  •           –  Measurements from the corners of the house to the side property lines
  •           –  Measurements of the exterior walls and all angles of the house
  •           –  Measurements of sidewalks, decks, driveways, and any other permanent elements on the property
  •           –  Heights of door sills and grade of property are part of the evaluation required.


After all the important measurements are taken, a concept drawing can be started where images and drawings will be used to walk you through the design ideas and layout. Our design consultants will begin with a concept or an inspiration and and explanation of the major ideas and layout, supported by more detailed drawings. Our Landscape Design Consultants will often present one overall scheme for the design as a concept plan and then show additional options such as material choices, types of plants and layout schemes for major site elements for specific areas.

  • It has been a lovely pleasure working with your team and we would like to thank in particular Peter who was so patient with us as we figured out what our "dream backyard" would look like. Valery N - Cumberland

  • I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the excellent work done by your firm. This fall I had a backyard deck installed at my home. Prior to selecting your company, I had met with representatives from several different companies. It was only when I met with Peter Albania did I realize that your company would do an excellent job. Peter is a true professional. His attention to detail, expertise and patience throughout the process were greatly appreciated. I cannot wait to enjoy the new space next summer. Thank you for your exceptional work and customer service. Kelly B. - Glebe

  • We would like to thank you and the good people on your team at Landscape Designers Ottawa for the recent work that you did at our home in the design and building of a beautiful cedar deck. It has made such a difference to our backyard living space, which we use a great deal. We had excellent testimonials from a neighbor and from the very beginning we liked working with you. You grasped what we wanted, created an outstanding design and gave us a clear estimate. Not only that you gave us advice on some other exterior matters which are in the  process of being addressed. In addition we cannot recommend too highly your professionalism and care. Deborah C.- Bridle Park

  • I would like to send my most Sincere thanks to Peter and his crew that recently completed the interlock project at the front of my house. I was totally impressed by Peter's design when he presented it to me. I put my faith in his experience and expertise and went with what he suggested, including the choice of the interlocking stone. I was not disappointed! In fact, when I saw the final outcome I was totally overwhelmed with its beauty to the point that I was at a total loss for words and felt it was too nice for my house. While I was not at home when most of the work was done, my neighbors tell me that the crew working on the project were diligent, courteous and very pleasant. My own contact with them totally supports this. I'd like to thanks you again for the most pleasant experience. I will absolutely recommend Landscape Designers Ottawa to anyone who asks.
