The design process begins with an initial landscape design consultation at your home or building site. This introduction is a terrific way for us to become acquainted and for me to learn about your tastes and lifestyle. During this meeting, we’ll discuss your needs and hopes regarding the current landscape or the future one you wish to create. I’ll evaluate the site conditions and make suggestions to overcome challenges and or fulfill your wishes. There is a minimum $200 initial landscape design consultation fee.
This meeting is usually followed up with a landscape design. If a drawn plan is necessary then I’ll provide an estimate for the design and a date for completion. However, if we generate enough ideas during the initial consultation and the implementation is straight forward, then you may not need a drawn plan. In that case, I’ll provide an estimate for the installation based on our conversation.
This service is for those who wish to learn about their landscaping and discover it’s positive and negative attributes. The evaluation is a handy tool for new home purchases, renovations and the “do it yourselfer” looking for guidance. We’ll identify the kind of trees, shrubs and perennials you have and assess their health. We check the integrity of patios, stone walls and drainage. We’ll make suggestions on how to enhance the property and how to care for it. There is a minimum $200 fee for the evaluation.
