Landscape Design Packages

Knecht’s Nurseries & Landscaping’s design team will work with you to create a landscape design package that is within your budget and time schedule.  We will work with you to turn your landscape into the beautiful, functional and comfortable outdoor living space you’ve always dreamed of enjoying.   The following are our most popular design packages. We can customize any of our design packages to fit your needs.

Landscape Site Visit Consultation

A $75 fee is charged for most initial site visits and/or consultations.  During this Site Visit, you will spend up to an hour with an experienced and certified professional who will evaluate your wants and needs, and give you ideas on how to implement them in your landscape.  You will be given an Information Packet about plant material and how to care for your landscape.   For visits under ½ hour, a charge of $40 is applicable.


Landscape Design Consultation including Landscape Concept Sketch – Basic Level

Includes the on-site assessment (see above) with solutions for areas of concern, as well as a concept sketch for a selected area of your landscape (not to scale) to use as a general guideline.  The drawing will include recommendations for Minnesota hardy plants, landscape construction information and hardscape ideas.  In addition, you will also receive our Information Packet.  The fee for this package is $99.  You will receive a $20 coupon which you can apply to a cash and carry purchase of $200 or more.

Landscape Design Consultation – Master Landscape Plan

On-site landscape or garden assessment and a fully detailed master landscape plan!   At your initial site visit, a Design Agreement will be discussed based on the scope of work you desire, including a cost estimate.  Landscape Designs are billed at $70 an hour and range from $210-$980.  We offer rebates of this fee of 50% to 100%, depending on how you choose to implement the installation of the design. (see below)   Upon acceptance of the Design Agreement, detailed drawings will be developed and presented in an appropriate scale for your project.  Included will be a specific plant list, construction details, landscape specifications and a maintenance print-out detailing what to do and when to do it for your newly created landscape.   If requested, an estimate and proposal to have your project professionally installed by Knecht’s Nurseries & Landscaping will be prepared along with the landscape design plan.  If you choose to do your own installation, your designer can assist you with obtaining the necessary plants and supplies, and getting them to your site.

 Rebate of the fees for a landscape plan design:

  • For landscape installation customers:

Rebate of 50% of the plan fee for installations under $10,000 – minimum installation of $2,000

             Rebate of 100% of the plan fee for installations over $10,000

  • For cash and carry customers:

$35 discount coupons will be given out that equal 50% of plan fee.  Minimum purchases apply.

 Project Coordination            

  • Installation of your landscape project will be scheduled once you have accepted the Installation Proposal, executed the contract, and the down payment for the project has been received.  The Designer will remain involved in your project throughout the entire planning and installation process.

Landscape Design Consultation with Specialty Areas in Mind

Do you have just a small specific area that needs to be designed or re-done?  An outdoor room makeover?  The initial $75 fee will be charged and the designer will then discuss your ideas with you and suggest to you the next step in the design process.  Price range for designs in this category would range between $140-$280.
