deliverables + what to expect
The scope of the project means the specific focus of the design. For example, most properties have a front, back + two sides, but the design scope may only involve front landscape. Your ecotopes designer will help you determine the design scope during the initial meeting, so that the focus of the investigation is clear + will suggest the appropriate design retainer.
The retainer is 1/2 of the design fee, paid up-front, which initiates the project. The outstanding design cost comes out in the project budget. The project budget will show the payment of the retainer as a credit.
