As a design only landscape architecture firm, Bergfeld Studio is uniquely suited to provide you, the client the best design for your landscape design problem. Unlike a design/build contractor, Bergfeld Studio's design solutions are not based upon what design suggestions (i.e. a paver patio) generate the greatest profit margin nor are the design recommendations based upon the limitations of an in-house landscape construction crew. Do not be confused and think that Bergfeld Studio has an adversarial relationship with contractors. On the contrary, Bergfeld Studio understands that our designs are only as good as the craftsmen who install them. That is why we maintain a strong relationship with a stable of landscape contractors and we would be happy to recommend the best contractor(s) to implement your landscape project.

As a design firm, Bergfeld Studio adds real value to your project's landscape by creating the best design possible within the parameters given; client wants, site needs and constraints, maintenance requirements and expectations, the targeted market (if commercial in nature), budget, phasing and priorities. When you, the client, are comfortable with the site plan and subsequent landscape design, it and all of the details of that design are placed on a level playing field for all site related contractors; landscape, irrigation, concrete, etc., to competitively bid. When the bids are received, it is an 'apples to apples' comparison for the design that you have seen and approved. You are not confused trying to compare one design/build firm's design and price over another's. I assist you in pre-qualifying landscape contractors and inviting them to bid, comparing the bids, answering your questions as well as asking clarification questions of the contractors. During construction, I oversee that the design is implemented to my satisfaction as well as yours. My role is to be your advocate and not a duel advocate for both the client and the landscape company that employs the designer (as some design/build firm project managers and designers find themselves).
