Landscape Design & Installation

Let Us Customize Our Program to Fit Your Needs

Getting Started

Book your appointment by purchasing our service online or in-store. Our Landscape Manager will be in touch within 48-72 hours with a proposed appointment date and time as well as information about the initial home visit with your designer to discuss your project and what you're looking for.

What's Included?

The Landscape Design appointment covers a front or backyard area up to 2,500 square feet. The appointment includes walking your garden, discussing the project, to be followed up with a plant list, product estimate and a hand-drawn planting diagram.

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. If your project involves more than an expert design, such as irrigation, lighting or hardscape, your designer can request separate bids from one of our contracted installers.

Cost: $399

The cost for this service covers four hours of our expert designer's time. Total designer time is four hours, which includes: initial home visit, off-site drawing time and post-install follow-up. If more than four hours is needed, our designer will let you know and extra hours can be purchased at the rate of $75 per hour.

FREE Landscape Design: A $399 Design Rebate credited to your invoice for plants and materials with a $2,500 minimum purchase, not including installation charges if applicable.
