Formal Landscape Design Service

This service is best suited for customers who wish to do substantial landscaping to one or more areas or their entire property. The process begins when you schedule an at home consultation with one of our landscape designers. Our designer will listen to your ideas, discuss your objectives, evaluate the site conditions and provide suggestions on how to meet your vision. The designer will take measurements and photos for the purpose of preparing a design. Once the design and proposal are complete and suit your wishes and budget, we will schedule the installation. Typically, our designer will oversee the landscape, walkway, driveway, patio and/or driveway installation and be your point of contact for any future needs. Design fees range from $150 to $500 depending on the scope of your project. $150 for small scale front or back plan. $500 for a full site master plan(s). Minimum of $2500 project budget required.
