 Initial Site Visit

First things first, let’s meet in person. It sounds old-fashioned, but we need to establish a good working relationship.
Next what is the scope of work?  We should walk around your property and make a complete list of what is important.

Verify Final Grading

If this is a new Project, we will make sure the grading is complete and meets drainage standards.
If we need to assist in grading, we will inform you of what is needed and send an estimate for your approval.

Irrigation Phase 1  

If your planning a new system, we will perform a design analysis to ensure cost effectiveness as well as feasibility.
If we are working on your existing system, we will take some time to ensure its functionality, this initial irrigation exam is $150.00.

Irrigation is simple at times, and very complicated when it chooses to be. Southeastern strives as professionals to install and repair systems correctly.

Receive Plant Material

Once the site irrigation is set up; the plants will be ordered.
Normally we coordinate the delivery schedule for the plants to be delivered onsite.
If the project will take longer to install than 1 day, we will do the plant install in phases.

Install Plants 2  

The big day is here. Finally we set out the plant material and we begin to dig holes, allot of holes.
Most of the time for plant material greater than 7gal, we will be bringing in some extra equipment to make the install go faster.
Once the holes are dug, we place the plants in the ground and backfill them with good fill dirt.

Now that all of the plants are installed, we will be able to adjust all the irrigation heads and make sure the drip emitters are fully functioning.
In the beginning of a plants new life cycle, it will require a lot of water.
Please make sure your familiar with your irrigation time clock, in just a few days, it will be necessary to change your run times.
Please ask for help if you need it.

Design

First we need to establish the scope, this is a great opportunity to design a custom piece based on feedback from you.
Then we take your ideas and we draw them. Depending on the scope, the final construction drawings may require review from an engineer.

Schedule

Once we agree on the scope and finalize contracts, a production schedule will be established.
We follow close to it as possible, unfortunately mother nature has her own ideas sometimes.

Construct

We have some skilled mason’s. They are skilled craftsman who know how to make the bricks look good!
The attention to detail is amazing. Some projects take longer than others, but obviously depends on the job scope.

Finalize

Once we finish the project a final walkthrough is necessary. We double check the little things just to make it look great.
If something happens and there’s a discrepancy, we will use this time to make sure it is right.
