Landscape Design Consultation and Planning 

You want a food oasis in your garden but you’re feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin? Our experienced team is here to help! We offer landscape design consulting services as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with our installation service.

Consultations can vary but usually involve a site visit to establish what you want out of your garden, the existing site conditions, and advice to help you move forward with your project.

A drawn plan is an optional service that will detail plants and their suggested placement. The time taken to produce these detailed plans are charged at the consultation rate of $50. Two hours minimum is required for this type of plan and the overall time varies due to the complexity of the site and plants desired for use.
