Whether it's a simple brainstorming session, shopping trip or a plant selection, our consulting services provide you flexibility for as much or as little help as you need. Not sure if you need a design or just a simple consultation? Please contact us to help determine the level of assistance you need. Below are consulting fees:
Hourly consulting: $75/hr for first hour. $65 for second hour. Includes on-site meeting to review your property, discuss your goals, and general brainstorming. If you decide to move forward with our design service we will credit this charge toward your design fee. Drawings and plans can not be done on site and requires additional time. We can also meet you at a nursery or landscape supply site, consult with an existing contractor, or personalize the time to meet your needs.
Full Site evaluation of property: $150+: Includes:
On-site meeting to review your property, discuss your goals, and general brainstorming.
Site evaluation form documenting goals, areas for improvement, and broad conceptual solutions. A copy will be emailed or mailed for your records.
Written summary of recommended solutions and advice for your site specific issues. This includes pictures of suggested plants.
Seasonal Site Evaluation: $125+ per visit Includes on site meeting to review your property, discuss your goals, and general brainstorming. This proactive service provides quarterly site evaluations to help promote awareness and monitor the effects of seasonal change on your landscape, along with a completed site evaluation form for each visit. The output is a summary of recommended solutions and advice for your site-specific issues.
Landscape design packages feature a scaled landscape plan, which includes all the existing and new features and materials labeled with clear identification. The starting prices listed below are based on the general size of the area and typical amount of detail needed. For example, a basic bed and shrub layout would require much less detail than a mixed perennial garden. Hardscape design and material selection (patios, walls, decks, walks) require additional fees. If construction drawings are desired we will collaborate with an architect for an additional cost.
Small Front or Back Yard: $350+
Medium Front or Back Yard: $400+
Small Property (front, back and side): $600+
Large Property (front, back and side): $800+
The first visit is $75. At this time we review all of your needs, the client questionnaire, ideas, and review the design process and dates. A proposal summarizing our first meeting and a contract is sent to you. If you choose to continue with the design process the $75 is applied to the landscape design deposit of 1/3 the total amount. The second 1/3 is due after the concept plan and the final 1/3 is due at the completion of the project.
A $2 / per mile (round trip) charge is required for meetings outside of our service area.
Fee's are listed above, but are discounted by 10%. If we work directly together and we do not meet or present plans, fees are discounted by 25%. Our hourly rate for on site or nursery meetings are $40/hr.
