At Home Landscape Design Services

Starting Your Landscape Design

Getting started on a custom Armstrong landscape design is easy. Simply book your landscape design service online or at your neighborhood Armstrong Garden Centers store. You'll be contacted from our landscaping team within 48-72 hours to discuss the service and set up a date and time for your at-home landscape design appointment.

What's Included?

A local Armstrong landscape designer will meet you at your home. They will walk your landscape with you discussing your preferences and lifestyle while assessing the existing garden conditions. They will create your custom hand-drawn landscape design diagram, plant list, and a product estimate off-site. The at-home landscape design appointment covers a front or backyard area up to 2,500 square feet. We can customize the program to fit your needs. We can coordinate installation or our designer can spot the plants for the installer for an hourly rate of $75 per hour.

Design Cost: $549

The at-home landscape design service includes four hours of our local, expert landscape designer's time. The designer's time includes an initial at-home visit to your address within a 10-mile driving distance from any Armstrong Garden Center or Palm Desert, off-site drawing time, and post-install follow-up. If more than four hours are needed, our landscape designer will let you know and extra hours can be purchased at the rate of $75 per hour. CAD drawings, Color Plans, and Renderings are available upon request for an additional fee.

FREE Landscape Design

Turn your Armstrong landscape design into a reality. When you purchase $3,500 of plants and materials from your design, you'll receive a $549 Landscape Design Rebate credited to your invoice. Minimum purchase excludes landscape installation labor charges if applicable.

I've been shopping at Armstrong for many years, but I 'discovered' their landscape designers just this Spring, when I had them design and install drought-tolerant plants to replace our thirsty lawn. The results are fabulous!

The designer we used was very 'painterly', easy to work with, and knowledgeable about plants, ground covers, and, of course, design.
