DESIGN TO GARDEN:
To develop a landscape design we first start out with a consultation to develop ideas and solve any problems. Most of this time is spent learning about your ideas and desires.
Discussions might include drainage, topography, plant likes and dislikes, future garden plans or possibilities, entertaining needs, maintenance and budget and any other desires
Often simple sketches are all that is needed and these can be worked up during the consultation.
Payment for the consultation is due when the consultation is finished.
Many people want a more in depth design where the property is measured and a design is drawn to scale.
This eliminates the need for improvising and gives specific guidelines on installation. If this is desired I
will then quote a price for the design work.
Designing your plan usually takes two to three weeks. I will then meet with you to present the design,
make any necessary changes, and answer any questions. After your approval, payment for the design is required.
What you receive is two copies of a scaled landscape design representing what you desire for your home.
The next step is for me to work-up a quote on the work needed to implement the plan.
The plans are often installed in a stages and assistance is provided to assure that the stages are installed
in the correct manor based on budget and growth needs of the plants. Such as trees are often added during
the first stage because they require more time to grow. The landscape design is a guide and concept that during
installation can require some alterations.
