The initial consultation is free. It takes place at your home and takes about one hour. At that meeting you can look at a photo album of our finished work and discuss such issues as budget and some general design concepts that will work for your project. If you like the direction that took the next step is to book in a design. At this time we can also hold a spot in our construction schedule for you pending the satisfactory acceptance of the design and quotation.
Landscape Design costs average $1500 for a typical project. Estate homes, acreages and more complex projects are more. The design is an architectural scale drawing and will lay out all the individual elements of the project including a complete planting plan and grading plan. In most projects there is an interim step in the process where you can have some input. This is the preliminary design stage (you can read more about that below) When the plan is complete there is another meeting at your home to present the drawing and the quotation at which time (or shortly thereafter) you can decide if you want to proceed with the construction.
For construction we have in-house crews that handle most of the construction. We also act as a general contractor to coordinate specialized trades and services.
That's pretty much the one minute spiel. As always if you require more info please feel free to contact us.
