Site Surveys & Permits in Atlanta

Surveys are very useful when it comes to designing your landscaping plan. Flowering Field Designs uses the survey during the design process of your landscaping projects. It's part of the design process that makes it easier for you to visualize the project prior to it being completed.

With our 3D Design and Drafting technology, we bring your planned landscaping project to life right before your eyes. Your landscape is captured digitally to allow you to visually see a rendering of your current landscape and will include survey information in order to properly align and design your new landscape.

Structure Permits

Many projects to improve your property with landscaping structures will require a permit for the work to be done. In general, the permitting authorities will require a drawing or digital rendering of the proposed plan. Inspections are a part of the permitting process where the workmanship and materials have to be of sufficient quality to pass the minimum standards set forth by the local building codes. These codes, or rules, are created to protect the homeowner from substandard workmanship and low quality building materials.

Our Atlanta Landscapers can provide you with a permit drawing taken from your project plan. It's important for you to have a set of design and construction documents to submit with your permit application. This document illustrates the projects design intent, compliance with building codes, and conveys the scope of the work to be done.

Landscaping projects that are likely to require permitting are:

  • Exterior Structures
  • Foundations
  • Retaining Walls
  • Removing Trees
  • Tree Replacement

As one example, the Atlanta's Tree Protection Ordinance states that “A permit is required to remove, destroy or injure any tree...of 6 inch or greater diameter at breast height (dbh) on private property. There are no exceptions, either by species or present condition.” [Sec. 158-29; Sec. 158-101(a)] *
