Getting Started

Our consultation and design packages begin with a site visit by an experienced and certified professional from our landscape design team. We’ll schedule a meeting with you at your property where we can answer your questions as we get to know you and your landscape.  We will discuss how you use your outdoor space(s), the challenges of your site, what your goals and priorities are, and how we can help you achieve them!  Site visits are up to an hour long, depending on the size and complexity of the property/area of focus, and cost $75*.  During the site visit we will discuss what level of service suits your needs and your budget.

*Site visits outside our local delivery area may have a modest travel fee.

Level 1 – Consultation

Sometimes referred to as garden, or landscape coaching, this is a site visit with a focus on answering your questions, identifying your existing plants, giving pruning tips, landscape suggestions, and plant/product recommendations.  This is a great service for people with established landscapes, gardens, and or problem areas.  We encourage you to take notes and ask questions. 

Level 2 – Consultation with a Written Site Visit Summary

A professionally written summary of your site visit can be a helpful tool.  It gives us time to focus our thoughts on the suggestions/recommendations we make for your site, and may include a simple sketch of areas of focus, project recommendations, a ballpark estimate, and/or plant palette.  This service is billed in addition to the site visit at our hourly rate of $75 per hour and generally costs $150-$225.

 Level 3 – Professional Landscape Design/Master Plan

A visual tool that provides you with a drawn-to-scale landscape plan of your property, or a specific area of focus. We will assess the scope of your project, and the goals and needs you have for your landscape and garden spaces.  During our visit we’ll discuss the Design Agreement which will include a checklist of areas of focus, specialized items, hardscapes, outdoor usage, budget, timeline, and will include a cost estimate for the partial or master plan.  The cost of a design/plan is based on the scope and complexity of your property/project.  Design hours are billed in addition to the cost of the site visit at $75 per hour and range from $225 to $1,000. Once a design has been presented, one round of revisions can be made at no additional cost to you.
