Vande Hey Company Process

Vande Hey Company Process in Appleton, WI

Timing is everything, and that old adage stands true even in the case of landscape design.

When you’re thinking about starting the landscape design process with Vande Hey Company, make sure to consider the time of year you’d like your project to be installed. If you want a fall installation, start the process in spring; if you want a spring installation, contact us in fall. The winter months are also a great time to start thinking and designing.

After contacting us, a Vande Hey representative will meet with you at the property to discuss your needs.  There is no charge for this initial information-gathering phase, for you to learn more about us, and for us to learn more about your landscaping needs.

During this time it is crucial to discuss do’s and don’ts, as well as any other ideas that will help us best create a design to meet your needs, from preferred plant material to dream outdoor living features. We will develop a plan to fit your budget, and if you aren’t able to complete the entire project right away, we can plan it in stages.

At the beginning of the design process, a member of Vande Hey Company’s measuring team will come to your house to measure the site. This includes measuring property lines, taking elevations, and documenting plant inventory. You do not need to be home for this step, and we will only use tape measures and surveying tools in your yard. 

Our designers typically take two to three weeks to design a project that meets your needs and fits your budget. Once the design is complete, we set a time to present and discuss the design, the materials used, and the costs. We can make any revisions or changes if needed. Our team will help you visualize the final look by presenting plant pictures and pictures of hardscape options. Because all of our designs are custom to your location, and drawn by some of the industry’s best designers and architects, a down payment is necessary before we can put your project on our schedule. We can also work with you on DIY designs.

Once the design phase is finished, our dedicated production team will install your project. Seeing the project from design to completion is an amazing transformation, and our specialists are always excited to watch your dreams come to life.

When your process is complete, we will keep your plan on file. If you decide to add features at a later date, we can look up your plan and expand or complete additional phases of the design.
