Turpin Landscape Design Build Creating Natural & Custom Spaces
You have a choice of landscape and pool companies. Over the last two decades we've worked to set ourselves apart as your go-to choice for water features and backyard transformations. This is how we do it:
We want you to know what to expect, so we're upfront about what's possible for your landscape. We respond to your messages within one business day, and make it easy to connect with us digitally, as well—login to contact us, see schedule updates, progress videos, and more.
We're not trying to keep all the secrets to ourselves. Instead, we'll happily educate you on your plant and material options and how they'll impact your environment and maintenance needs for years to come. From there, we'll teach you how to best care for your new landscaping features.
We've been doing this for a long time, and we have close relationships with local suppliers and contractors. Our team is highly trained and skilled, we maintain numerous industry certifications, and we’ll manage any specialized elements of your project by bringing in the right professionals. That way, you can complete your entire landscape with just one point of contact: the Turpin team.
Our work extends into the community we love. Every year, the Water Garden Tour helps raise funds for the local food bank, and we’re proud to say that in 15 years we’ve raised more than $175,000, which goes toward feeding children who might not otherwise have food available when they’re not in school.
Our Craftsmanship Promise
At Turpin Landscape Design Build, we take a proactive approach to your landscaping, identifying any potential problems and addressing drainage and other concerns, to ensure an inviting, enduring outdoor space. We believe in our craftsmanship, and we back it up with warranties: one year on trees and shrubs, five years on most hardscapes, manufacturer warranties on pools, and three years parts, service and craftsmanship warranty on water features. If we perform the annual maintenance on your water feature it is backed by a five year craftsmanship warranty.

A Proven Process for Awesome Backyard Spaces
Creating a great customer experience is as important to us as building beautiful landscapes. Over the years, we've streamlined our process to ensure a simple, hassle-free experience for you. View each step in our process below to learn more.
1. Get In Touch
This is where it all begins! Fill out the contact form on our website and give us some information about your project. You'll hear from us within one business day requesting any additional information that may be needed or to move forward with the next step in our process.
2. Initial Consultation
This is an opportunity for both of us to get to know each other better either on the phone or virtually. You'll go into detail about your needs and wants, to ensure we've got a good understanding of what you're looking for in your space so that we can present you with a ballpark price for your project.
3. Onsite Consultation
The Project Manager or Landscape Designer will be there, and we ask that all decision-makers be present. We’ll collect your consultation fee, which will be credited toward the design and/or construction. During this consultation we’ll take measurements, photos, and share material samples with you to help you get a better sense of what's possible. Throughout it all, we're here to guide you with expert advice and recommendations.
From there, we'll draw up your agreement and collect your deposit or design fee to secure your place on our schedule. For some projects, we'll start our design process right there on the spot!
4. Design & Materials
For larger projects and pools there is a more extensive design phase. There's a $1,500-5,000 design charge, depending upon the scope of the project and whether you'd like a 2D or 3D design. We'll have a virtual meeting to present your design plan which includes material samples. Design and material adjustments are made according to your feedback. We offer revisions, because we want to make sure the design is exactly what you're envisioning for your space. We’ll finalize your plans and draft your construction agreement. When you sign off on it and pay your construction deposit, we’ll secure your place on our calendar.
5. Project Kick-Off Meeting
You'll meet in person with the Project Manager and your crew leader, where we'll revisit the scope of your work and the fine details of your project. We'll mark everything out on the ground so you can get a sense of the layout in your space, and you'll have the opportunity to ask questions. This meeting usually occurs 2-4 weeks before construction.
Your Project Manager remains your point of contact throughout the construction phase. Our crew works hard to stick to the agreed upon schedule and budget, pending any change requests or weather conditions and other circumstances out of our control. We'll provide weekly updates on the status of the project and communicate proactively whenever something needs your attention.
7. Final Walkthrough
You'll take a final look at your new landscape with your Project Manager, and we'll show you how to properly care for and maintain your outdoor features. This is also when we'll collect your final payment.
