JustLuxe: What would surprise people about landscape design?
Keith Williams: I think people would be surprised about the overall involvement and the scope of work that a landscape designer is responsible for. We are hands on from the beginning to the end of a project. We’re responsible for the entire project site from designing and detailing to coordinating. As soon as you step out of the front door we’re designing driveways, pools, planting, lighting, grading, drainage, irrigation and more. We even design buildings and structures, whether they're cabanas, pergolas, orchid house or pavilions.
JL: How does a meeting with a first-time client usually go?
KW: The first time you meet with a client is the most important time. Obviously you want to make an impression, but more importantly you want to create a bond and show a true understanding of the client’s desire and expectations. It’s very important that the client feels comfortable with you and you with them.
