Design a Master Plan For Your Landscape             

You will want to have a Master Plan developed for your property if you have a newly constructed home or are planning to completely renovate your yard. There are many benefits to a professionally landscaped home. It will create a personal oasis for you and your family while also adding to the value of your home.

Layout of Elements: The arrangement, such as planting beds, walkways, decks, ponds, patios, sitting areas, etc., within the yard. It can be compared to creating a floor plan in your outdoor living space. It is a crucial step toward creating a landscape that functions well.

Planting Design: The selection and placement of plants determined through the Layout of Elements process. Soil type, sun requirements, style, and the client’s desired maintenance level, are considered when developing a planting design.

We will have at least three meetings that keep the client involved through the entire design process. The initial meeting is at the site to discuss the client’s needs and desires and to gather site data. Often another visit is needed by the designer to create a base map and analyze the site further. Shortly after, we have our preliminary plan meeting at the nursery to review the layout and talk in more detail about plants. We meet at the nursery with the Master Plan that incorporates both the layout and the planting design. The planting design is reviewed and modifications are made as needed.

Master Plans Start at: $2000, based on $175/hour.

A 10% discount will be given on plant materials and supplies for the project for one year.

Fee is based on the complexity of the design and size of the lot. The average lot is 5,000 sq. ft., including house.


Custom Landscape Design
Most people have unique design needs for their yard. Some clients may have their layout determined, but need help with a Planting Plan. Others may need help creating the layout in their yard but would like to choose the plants themselves. Sometimes a client wants a specialty garden designed in part of their yard which requires both a Layout of Elements and Planting Design.
Because each situation is different, cost can be determined on an individual basis.
