DELA Inc. is a full-service firm that tailors each job to the needs of client and site. The initial interview usually includes a free consultation. After that the design process unfolds through the following steps, sometimes fewer if the landscape lends itself sensibly to a design-build approach.
- master plan
- conceptual design
- schematic design
- budget estimate development
- materials research and selection
- design development documentation
- construction documentation
- plant selection
- contractor selection
- field/construction observation

N E T W O R K

Depending on the size and needs of each project DELA draws on an extensive local network of nursery horticulturalists, irrigation consultants, civil and structural engineers, construction detailing experts, LEED professionals, builders and craftspeople. 
As possible, we bring in the considerable talents and enthusiasm of the UCBerkeley landscape architecture students whom Daphne teaches and mentors.
