I am aware that a landscape is the overall appearance of a lawn or garden. However, what services are considered to be in the realm of landscaping?
In general, any additions or improvements made to a home’s exterior grounds are considered to be landscaping projects. Most people think of landscaping as any changes made to a lawn or garden surrounding a home. Regardless of the size and shape of an outdoor area, every home owner has a landscape to work with. Landscaping is the art of taking this space and transforming it into a complimentary work of art.
Why should I consider landscaping for my yard or garden?
Even if you are not currently selling your home, it is a well known fact that any landscaping activity can immediately boost the overall value of your property. When you do choose to sell your home, a beautiful landscape can add thousands of dollars to the price. Think of your yard as your home. would you avoid cleaning the kitchen until you were ready to sell your home? A beautiful landscape around can make living there more enjoyable and promote a positive image to your friends and neighbors.
I’ve decided that I would like landscaping services but, where should I begin?
Let us help you sort through your collection of ideas and concerns. We will meet with you to help determine and “priority list” and put together a plan of action. We can provide specific estimates, design plans and much more.
Do I really need a professional to handle my landscaping?
While we would certainly love for you to try our services, some projects can be completed by the ambitious “week-end-warrior”. Let us help you determine an approach to your project. Perhaps you could benefit from a detailed plan. With a degree and license in Landscape Architecture, we can provide you with detailed professional design services.
Is there an initial fee for your services?
We typically always meet with our prospective clients free of charge, initially. During our initial meeting we can determine if a detailed estimate will suffice or if we should enter into a Design Service agreement.
Do I need an estimate or should I have a Landscape Design Drawing?
In most cases, we are able to provide a detailed estimate for basic landscape services. If more information is desired and the client needs help with overall design and masterplanning then we would recommend letting us help you with our design services.
How much does it cost to have a Landscape Design Drawing?
Basic landscape design services start at $250. Prices for design services increase based on anticipated site visits and drawing time. We can help with design of your landscape, pool and patio, guest house, drive and parking and or anything else outside of your home.
If I pay for design services, is that fee applied as a deposit towards construction?
In most cases we are able to offer a certain percentage of your design fee as a deposit for construction services.
Do you offer a warranty on your work?
Your landscape is a “living, breathing” environment and requires a certain degree of maintenance to be successful. We warranty all of our work and stand by our commitments to our clients. However, we cannot replace plants that have been neglected. As a result, we only warranty plants if we have installed an automatic irrigation system.
