Our Process

The Flora Design & Landscape team is committed to providing our St. Louis area customers with the outdoor space of their dreams. We have taken the time to develop and strengthen our custom process to ensure that every customer we work with has an impeccable experience from start to finish. 


Initial Meeting

Share your vision with us so that we can explore the possibilities.
At Flora Design & Landscape in St. Louis, we make it a point to get to know our clients and develop a personal and professional relationship. We understand that each client possesses a unique set of needs and desires and that open communication is imperative when it comes to achieving desired results in landscaping.
This initial consultation gives us the perfect opportunity to launch this discussion and to begin exploring various options and design features. Expectations, budget, use of space, views from different locations inside and outside the home, storage, furniture, available seating—these are all important aspects that our experienced team will prompt you to consider.


Navigate Permit & Codes

We’ll handle the logistics so that you don’t have to.
Many St. Louis area municipalities now have codes and regulations pertaining to everything from types of plants allowed to color and style of retaining wall block. These protocols can be confusing for those who are unfamiliar with how they operate. Fortunately, we possess the knowledge and expertise to successfully navigate these parameters and create a design plan that is both aesthetically beautiful and meets all codes.
After meeting with the homeowner and obtaining a property survey, we contact the respective St. Louis municipality in question to confirm any necessary requirements and restrictions. These precautions may take some extra time and effort on our part, but can prevent a lot of unnecessary costs and headaches for you in the long-run.


Design & Installation

Bringing it all together to create an outdoor space that is both beautiful and unique.
Once we gain a good understanding of what our client desires and the regulations put forth by their St. Louis municipality, we are prepared to move on to the design stage of your landscaping project.
Our knowledgeable group of landscape designers and horticulturists will work with you to create an original concept, customized specifically for you and your property. We will guide you through the design process and help you to select everything from trees, shrubs and perennials to hardscape elements such as pathways, seating areas, retaining walls and lighting fixtures. Additionally, we will analyze the current watershed of the property and may install strategically located drains to prevent drainage issues for both you and your neighbors. Finally, we will coordinate irrigation, planning and installation to ensure a seamless execution of your project from concept to culmination.
Custom renderings of your design will allow you to envision all elements as a whole and give you a realistic idea of how your design will translate from vision to reality. Regardless of what design elements you desire, you can be confident that the Flora Design & Landscape team will help you to create a beautiful, unique outdoor space.
