Booking a Design Consultation

The first step to moving forward with your construction project involves an initial one-on-one meeting. During the initial meeting, one of our landscape professionals will listen to your desired needs to ensure that the design includes all the discussed elements. We will then begin by taking all the necessary measurements to ensure that when we input your project's dimensions into our design software, it will be scaled correctly. This step is particularly important when it comes to estimating the cost of your landscaping project.

What should homeowners have prepared before an initial landscape consultation?

To ensure that the landscape consultation is as efficient as possible, homeowners should:​


  1. Determine a wishlist of items that are desired to be incorporated into their landscape construction project. Clear communication about the desires will help our professional landscape designers develop a plan that incorporates these elements.

  2. Establish a budget for how much you are comfortable with investing in your landscape project. Too often from our experience clients' are worried that providing a budget will result in the budget being maximized, when in fact this is not the case. Providing a budget is helpful for the landscape designer as construction projects can range in cost from a few thousand dollars to over a hundred thousand. By providing a budget range, our landscape designers will work with you to provide the exceptional look that you desire while keeping within your budget. Providing a range simply helps designers incorporate the appropriate elements into the landscape design so that they fit within the provided budget range. If you are unsure of how much to expect for your landscape project, our landscape consultant will be more than happy to provide you with a rough idea of cost based on the initial consultation.
