Design isn't an event.  it's a process of refinement.  Every detail is decided by someone.  The basic steps are: Concept, preliminary, revisions, final, and documentation.  It can be substantially completed before construction or during construction.  I have worked with a few clients when the final design was very different than their original idea.

A sketch is the based on a semi scale plat.  it's the first step in the design process, but isn't accurate or detailed enough for construction without interpretation.

A scaled 2D plan is a conversion of the fat fuzzy lines of a sketch into something that can be dimensioned.  The effect of the 3rd dimension (height) can be calculated, but not adequately demonstrated nor verified with a 2D plan.  The plan can be no more accurate that the survey of existing conditions.  To that end, I recommend you hire a surveyor.

3D design model is an effective tool for working out construction details and making sure that everyone is imagining the same thing.  It serves to avoid misunderstandings and significant change orders during construction.  It's not just a picture of the design; it's the design.  Design changes and alternative scenarios are very easy and extremely cost effective compared to change orders during the construction process.  Choices are easier and less stressful when you can see the difference between alternatives, compare the relative costs, and confirm or adjust your priorities. www.signaturelandscapes.com/drawings/deck.pdf

"Thank you again for all your help. You are wonderful!"  Julie M. Broomfield, CO

You're something, David. I've never known anyone who enjoyed his job the way you do.  I consider that to be one of life's greatest blessings.  David Keith  Thanks for the complement, DK!   Have you ever felt like you were banging your head against the wall and wondering how good it will feel when you can finally stop?  That was me for a quarter century!   I used to spend most of my time and energy doing chores related to business, employees, government forms, taxes, etc.  Four years ago I retired from the labor business.  Now, I am free to go anywhere and do anything I want.  My mind is now free to create without the encumbrance of employee problems.  This has allowed my spirit to soar!   I have been training all my life for these opportunities, and I am uniquely qualified to use my gifts and tools to resolve complex issues with enlightened solutions.  I get my thrills by solving particularly elusive opportunities!

David:  Thanks so much for your input...You are a prince among men!  I will hang in there. If there is anything I can ever do for you please don't hesitate to ask. Your friend in Ocean City Maryland

Thank you very much. This is the most beautiful site I've ever seen. Thanks Sabah

Your site is one in a million!! I find it really helpful. I live in Greece. I am an undergraduate student at the department of agriculture of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece

Hey David: I have seen the website - it ROCKS!!!  I will scan the plat and send it to you ASAP. I am not in a great BIG hurry - but my yard looks sooooooooo bad - my neighbors may burn my house down in anger. Talk to you soon - Sis

David, I am incredibly impressed by your web page. I hope that it has brought you great success! ...Doug B"

Hi David, ...I took a look around your website and you have a really ingenious service that is compatible with the Internet, something that many people value...Noah N. Phoenix AZ

One of the most important aspects of a website is not only how it looks, but how it functions. David's website is extremely easy to navigate and very informative. " Lisa Atlanta, GA"

Hello David:  I recently came across your website and was extremely impressed with the user-friendly format. The information was logically organized and all the images were easily downloaded in a reasonable amount of time...." Amanda

David has created a great website. it's easy to use and responsive to a variety of needs. If you have a concern, David is quick to respond, and gives you the resources to answer your questions. Excellent job, David.  Bob Walker, Athens,

I am a landscape design student and have not seen a site as consumer friendly and comprehensive as David's site. I also had the opportunity to chat personally with David and found him to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and easy to talk to. The layout of his site is beautiful, educational and easy to navigate. I plan on going back for design help both with my coursework and also with my personal design needs.  Marcia in DC

Mr. Childers, I got a chance to look over your site and it's very professional and user-friendly. People who don't know much about plants, design, or even the internet could easily find their way around this site. Honestly, I'm just wondering how long you worked on it because it looks like you hired some web design firm to do it for you. Great work! I also enjoyed looking at the pictures of your design work, especially the one where it looks like the pool cover comes out from under the pool house. Talk to you later, Alex Gardener
