At Charles Hugo Landscape Design we go beyond transforming the outdoors within the traditional boundaries of the landscape designer and extend into additions, porches and other structures to create perfect spaces. Using native materials that add grace, color and texture we create natural settings that are in balance with the existing environment. We manage all aspects of the process from design conception to implementation to post plant care and bed maintenance.
Whether creating new outdoor living areas or enhancing an existing one, let us transform the way you live out doors…naturally.
Charles (Chuck) Hugo has been designing and building beautiful landscapes on the seacoast for almost two decades. Chuck has a background in the aesthetics of design and the principals of engineering and construction. Trained early in his career as an artisan stonemason, he brings the full spectrum of his art and craft to the resolution of his projects, that in addition to their beauty reflects a sensitivity to his clients concerns.
Throughout my design process the primary goal is to understand and articulate my clients’ ideas and aspirations for their landscape.
We do this together as client and designer by starting with an initial meeting at the client’s home where we engage in a series of conversations so I can assess the clients’ primary objectives and concerns; we walk the property to evaluate existing conditions and do a thorough review of my portfolio so the client may get a feel for my design style.
After the initial meeting, if we decide to proceed, I will prepare a design budget and contract uniquely tailored to the individual client’s project and scope of work. The contract will clearly spell out all cost and payment schedules.
The focus of my design process is to understand the clients’ needs and wishes, to translate these into a comprehensive design that successfully addresses these issues thus creating a beautiful and functional landscape.
