How our Consultation works
Our designers are Certified Landscape Professionals or Landscape Architects. They have the experience and knowledge to work with you from the initial consultation to the final installation of your project; all the while integrating thoughts, needs, wants and desires into a finished landscape that adequately meets your needs and reflects your individual personality.
Whether you need a detailed plan or a rough sketch, the design process will ultimately help you save time and money by ensuring continuity and flow, even if the work is implemented in phases. We will work with you to create a landscape design that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and in harmony with the natural environment. Using elements of color, form, line, scale and texture, we combine ideas, products and services, expertly crafted, into unique landscapes that enhance your lifestyle and property!
Our designs can include patios, retaining walls, perennial gardens, foundation plantings, water features, gazebos, pools, decks, fences, the list goes on and on… If you can imagine it, we can design it!
How does our Design Consultation Work? For Projects Over $3000
Our program works like this. We charge $100, and we have a professional landscape designer come out to your home to meet with you and evaluate your needs. This usually takes less than 1 hour of your time and, if possible, the designer will give you an estimate at that time.
We have a minimum job size of $3000
If you need a design plan, the designer will base the cost of the design on your individual needs and desires. Whatever the cost of the design, it is rebateable if you buy from us! The typical rough sketch/design fee starts at $300, which is also rebateable if you buy from us! When the designer calls to set up an appointment with you, they will go over all of the details and decide if a design is needed.
