Gale Nurseries has been designing and building gardens in the Philadelphia region for over seventy year. Our strength is in our designs and abilities to get project approved by the township so that our construction crews can meticulously go about installing the project.
Our process begins with a consultation and site visit with the client. During this initial meeting we get to know about the client's lifestyle. We talk about subjects such as how many children they have, do they entertain and are they away during August. How the client lives is more important to us than the terrain. It is the nucleus of how we build our garden. The layout and architecture of any existing or proposed structures on the property is also a driving factor. The views and the aesthetic from the inside of a home are almost more important than the views from the outside as more time is spent from the inside. It is in our first meeting with a new client and first few site visits that these guidelines start to form conceptual designs.
From there we pick the concepts that we like and refine them. Gale Nurseries works closely with the client to revise the plans in order to come up with a set of working drawings that will be used to bid construction and eventually will turn into final construction drawings. Included in these sets of drawing are planting plans, irrigation plans, lighting plans and construction details. Throughout the entire process the designer works very closely with the client, sometimes spending time walking through other gardens and garden ornament exhibits to understand their personal stylistic likes and dislikes.
Upon completion of design many times we are required to go through township zoning which includes minor grading permits and storm water management studies. When the township gives us the ok construction begins. We believe it is crucial to have the designing landscape architect, project manage the entire construction experience. Our construction crews come from many diverse backgrounds including horticulture, masonry and landscape construction. Our subcontractors include an eclectic mix of professions including pool builders, tennis court builders, electricians, excavators, arborists, carpenters and irrigation specialists. The building process is flexible in that many times small changes can be made to the plan throughout construction.
