Design

Our designers are passionate about achieving creative, functional, and beautiful solutions to landscape design problems. Often times, our clients call on our expertise to solve a difficult landscape problem that does not warrant a full design package. For this, we can complete an on-site consultation.

The on-site consultation begins with a walk-around, a review of existing conditions, and a budget discussion. Within three days of the site visit you will receive a document outlining solutions, materials, and suppliers. Typical landscape consultation subjects include: leaning/failing retaining walls, questions about the integrity of decks/patios, visual screening issues, and steering DIY’ers in the right direction. The flat rate for this one-hour consultation and follow-up document is $200.

If you are looking for a more complete design solution, a landscape concept plan is what you need. At the conceptual design stage we take your ideas and transform them into functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces. The emphasis is on form and function, to create a space that will meet your needs and incorporate your own unique style. The landscape concept plan is drawn to a convenient scale using digital and hand methods as required to communicate the design intent.  The concept plan includes:

  • Spatial layout
  • Hard landscape features
  • Plant selection and placement
  • Conceptual details of custom features
  • Material suggestions

Design services are charged on an hourly rate basis. We will provide a detailed design cost estimate after the initial client meeting and site visit.
If you decide to proceed with building your space, we may need to provide additional details and apply for building permits through the municipality to proceed with construction. A full design package is required to take the project to completion.  Our designers are experienced in developing comprehensive development and building permit application packages, and will manage the approval process quickly and efficiently. This package is also appropriate for tendering job bids. To help negotiate both time and budget, many of our clients will phase the construction of their spaces over a period of months, or even years.
