Full Landscape Design Package

If you’d prefer a complete and detailed plain done by us, we will happily provide! A full landscape design program provides you with a detailed, scaled, and fully denoted plan, taking you from the initial outreach right to the first shovel breaking ground! 

We provide:

  • The meeting: An initial meeting gives you an opportunity to learn a bit about our design process and allows us to learn more about you and your outdoor wish list. We will also touch on some basic design and budgeting advice.
  •  The proposal: After the meeting, we’ll submit to you a written proposal describing the scope and fee for a full design.
  • The site visit: Once you’ve accepted our proposal, we’ll come for a visit, measure and photograph the entire site, document existing plants, draw a base map in CAD (using existing site plan if available), including drainage, diagram views, and usage.
  • The Design: An initial schematic design  will be presented  for clients’ input, followed by several drafts of developed plans, preliminary plant selection, and illustrative perspective renderings.
  • The Construction Drawings: Final CAD construction plans to scale (11”x 17”), hardscape & planting plan, plant list, including plant availability research.

Cost: Typical residential design fees range from $1,500-$5,000, depending on scope and complexity.
