Schendel Lawn And Landscape Design And Build Services In Topeka

When Henry Ford invented the assembly line, there was a plan or layout in place on paper before the first car rolled off the line.  Likewise, when a builder builds a house, they have an order of operations (a design) to abide by in order to properly complete the job.  Every great invention or creation starts with a design process.  The same holds true with designing a hardscape or landscape--a great landscape starts with a great design.  At Schendel Lawn And Landscape, our designers have the tools and knowledge to create outstanding, unique, and creative designs for your commercial or residential property.  Whether you want to revamp an existing landscape or you are in the process of building a new home to be landscaped, the Schendel Lawn and Landscape design process is where you want to start.  Our goal in the design process is to create an aesthetically pleasing environment that is also functional.  One of our specialties is creating outdoor rooms that may consist of elements such as:

  • Fireplaces

  • Pergolas

  • Kitchens

  • Patios

  • Sitting Walls

No job is too big or too small for our design team.  Below is an example of the design & build process from start to finish:

  1. Initial meeting with designer and clients.

         a.  Building of priorities list with client

              i.  With this particular project the client wanted more entertainment space to accommodate larger
              ii. The client also desired an easy way to get from the back door to the lower part of the back yard
                  as the grade was steep between two.
