Horticultural Experts to Guide Plant Choices
Botanicon uses years of horticulture and landscape management experience to choose planting palettes that are appropriate for our clients sites and are less maintenance intensive. Plants selected in this phase determine the sustainability of the landscape for decades to come. Using the right plant in the right place the first time is the cornerstone of a thriving site.
Maintenance Impact Statement
Generate Landscape Maintenance Cost Estimate
Long term site maintenance costs are directly correlated to the design. Botanicon develops maintenance impact statements from landscape plans and specifications for maintenance prior to design completion and site construction. Knowing how much annual landscape maintenance services will impact our clients budget before the site is installed is a powerful planning tool.
LEED and SITES Projects
Horticultural Consulting for Sustainable Landscapes
Botanicon works with project teams seeking LEED and SITES certification, or those who just want to implement sustainable landscape strategies. Sustainable landscapes provide ecosystem benefits and economic advantages over the long run because they use less resources for long term management. Our consultation services as a LEED Green Associate are rendered on behalf of owners and project team members.
Landscape Installation Monitoring
On-Site Owners Representative
Botanicon is a licensed C-27 landscape contractor who provides third party oversight on behalf of our clients. We inspect and report back to project owners and landscape architects to ensure their sites are being installed according to approved plans, construction specifications and accepted industry standards during every step of the process.
Phasing from Landscape Installation & Warranty to Maintenance
Botanicon represents owners and landscape architects on newly installed landscapes through the maintenance and warranty phase. Prior to warranty expiration, we conduct a detailed inspection and address measures for correction prior to site turnover for maintenance. We ensure our clients get what they have paid for and the site is acceptable for ongoing maintenance.
