Frequently Asked Questions
How do I start the landscaping process?
The first step in landscaping your home is to schedule an on-site consultation with one of our landscape designers. The on-site consultation between the landscape designer and homeowner serves as the foundation for developing a landscape plan that meets the needs of the client. Through the on-site consultation process the landscape designer will learn of the landscape goals of the client including any tree, shrub and perennial preferences as well as favorite color combinations and the budget (if known). The landscape designer will also answer any questions the client may have concerning landscaping and business practices.
If the client decides to proceed with a landscape design and proposal, the landscape designer will measure and photograph the client’s property, and begin the design process.
What information should I provide at the on-site consultation?
The client may wish to provide a general idea of what they want to accomplish with landscaping and a list of any specific trees, shrubs or perennials that they would like to be included in their new landscape.
What happens after the on-site consultation?
Your landscape designer will prepare a landscape design and proposal using the information gathered during the on-site consultation. The designs will only take 1-2 weeks to finish after the on-site consultation. When your landscape design is complete, your designer will schedule a time convenient to you for review of the landscape design and the proposal to complete your landscape project.
