Prairie Path Group is a full service design build company, which by definition means we will be with you through the entire project, from first contact to final walk through and beyond; All within one licensed company. Here is what you can expect from the start.
FIRST CONTACT---- Our receptionist will take some information from you to find the best match amongst our design team. Our initial estimates are free, however we do offer detailed renderings for a fee. Let's get your name, phone number, e-mail, address, scope of work, budget (if established), and schedule a date and time for the interview meeting.
INTERVIEW MEETING--- The next step is crucial. Let's meet at your home and discuss your wish list and scope of work. We'll talk about design build best practices and probably mention some design issues to take into account that you've never thought of. Please have a copy of the plat of survey for our designer, a digital copy is just fine. Our designer will discuss design styles and budget with you. We'll collect any information that will help us when we go back to the drawing board.
DESIGN PRESENTATION--- This is our favorite step. We get really passionate about our designs at Prairie Path Group and enjoy presenting them to you. Within your estimate we have built in one design iteration. This allows us to hear your feedback, review the design and make design alterations. We really want you to fall in love with the design process.
PROJECT SCHEDULING--- We will schedule your project, pull permits, review local codes, and order materials. Typically, lead times are 3-5 weeks with construction lasting 2 days to 3 weeks depending on the scope of work. Let's stay in touch. Transparency and communication are key for project clarity. Because our company does work which is affected by foul weather we ask for your patience and cooperation in altering the schedule because of this. Thanks!
FINAL PRODUCT--- We will do a final walk through to make sure everything is complete. Discuss material maintenance, and plant/tree water scheduling. We warranty our hardscape workmanship for 4 years after completion and our landscape plants are warrantied for 1 year.
"..The team at PPG did a wonderful job putting all my ideas down on paper and into one design. It was even better than I imagined it would be. We can hardly wait for phase two of installation!"
