Initial Meeting for Design
A landscape design begins with meeting you and accessing your needs and desires. I will quote you a fee for a full landscape plan. If you need
more information we can turn our meeting into a landscape consultation and my hourly fee will apply. We might discuss garden style, the scope of
work, trees and plants, maintenance, materials and perhaps do some problem solving. Should you decide on a full landscape plan your consultation
fee will be rolled into the cost of a plan.
Preliminary Landscape Planning
If your design requires structures and hardscape changes I will create a Preliminary Conceptual Landscape Plan.
I will refer you to contractors
that I feel will meet your needs in terms of skill and cost.
I advise most clients to get 3 bids.
Landscape Planting Plan
Upon approval, I will create a Planting Plan. A plant list will be included with the botanical name, common name,
suggested size and care.
Design facilitation during the installation phase will assure that the finished product fulfills the design
intent and that you are happy with the results. It is part of the fine-tuning that happens between the landscape designer,
the landscape contractor and you. At planting time I can place plants for your landscape contractor or the do-it-yourselfer.
By placing plants we are letting the design evolve to its full potential. Pots can also be addressed
at this time.
