Our Process

Dear Valued Client,

We appreciate you considering colaborating with us on transforming your outdoor spaces. At Brandywine Designs LLC, our commitment to creating exceptional landscapes and outdoor living environments is at the core of everything we do. To ensure clarity and transparency in our partnership, we would like to share our approach to our customer’s projects and how it sets us apart in the industry.

Our Approach: Design-Build with a Fixed Cost Model

We operate on a design-build fixed cost model. This means we are entrusted not only with designing your project but also with bringing that design to life, all within a pre-agreed budget. This model is based on a comprehensive construction agreement that is finalized after the design phase. It ensures that you have a clear understanding of the cost from the outset, allowing for a seamless and predictable project journey.

Quality Over Quantity

In a marketplace often dominated by price wars and volume-driven strategies, we have chosen to step away from the traditional competitive bidding process. Our experience has shown us that focusing on quality over quantity not only allows us to dedicate the necessary attention to each project but also ensures that we deliver an unparalleled level of craftsmanship and customer service.

We believe that each project is unique and deserves a tailored approach. This philosophy has guided us away from competitive bidding, as we feel it does not always allow for the nuances of individual projects or the high standards of execution that we set for ourselves. Instead, we strive for a process that values precision, bespoke design solutions, and the highest execution standards—qualities we find are not always achievable in a bid-focused environment.

Why Choose Brandywine Designs LLC?

Choosing Brandywine Designs LLC means partnering with a company that prioritizes:

  • Bespoke Designs: Tailored specifically to your needs and aspirations.

  • Fixed Costing: Predictability in pricing from the very beginning.

  • Quality and Precision: A commitment to exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail.

  • Personalized Service: Direct communication and collaboration throughout the project.


We understand that embarking on a landscape design and outdoor living project is a significant decision. Our goal is to make this process as predictable, enjoyable, and rewarding as possible. At Brandywine Designs LLC, we are not just building outdoor spaces; we are creating environments that enhance lifestyles and bring joy to those who experience them.


Thank you for considering Brandywine Designs LLC for your project. We are excited about the opportunity to bring your vision to life and to exceed your expectations in every aspect of our work.


Warm regards,

Mark Wagner, Owner, Brandywine Designs LLC
