    Site Planning

    As its name suggests, this term refers to designing the entire site or property, as opposed to concentrating on a specific area or single item. It includes thinking ahead, so as to allow future development of the entire site without re-working larger elements. If a septic system or some sort of easement exists, or if setback lines create a tight envelope, position the retaining wall or driveway to allow for future placement of a swimming pool.
