LANDSCAPE DESIGN

from concept design to project management

My approach to design, first and foremost, is to listen carefully to what you want, whether it be a low maintenance, low water use backyard or a formal entry to your home – how you hope to use and feel in your space is my priority.

THE PROCESS:

After an initial conversation to learn more about your project and to see if we’re the right fit, I’ll send you a questionnaire that allows you to share more details about your space and your desires for how you’d like to use it. I’ll then schedule an on-site consultation to learn more about your garden, your style and any special considerations such as drainage or screening issues.  From this meeting, you will receive a proposal outlining the scope of the design and deliverables. Once I receive your signed agreement and a 50% deposit, I’ll put you on the design schedule and return for site analysis and measurements. From here, I will begin the design process and create two concepts that we will review in- person. At this meeting I’ll share the plan view concepts, material choices and discuss plant palettes. The next phase is a final design that includes a detailed planting plan, list of plants that includes sizes and quantities as well as a maintenance plan.

My goal is to create a space within your budget that will be enjoyable from both the outside and inside of your home –  whether it be a colorful oasis, a place for family and friends to gather, a haven for wildlife, or simply a private refuge for rest and relaxation.

Design fees start at $2,000 and vary depending on the complexity and size of the project.

Project (total install) costs generally range from $20,000 to $150,000+
