Design Consult

I can walk your property with you and help you sort out design ideas if you don’t have the budget for a full fledged design.  I can also do a rough design on-site, or a planting plan for you that will be able to get you headed in the right direction with your landscape contractor or crew. Usually this approach works well for people who aren’t too concerned about the details, or are going to DIY but want to get the benefit of professional advice. I can advise on affordable and attractive hardscape options, plants, grading and drainage, water retention, lighting, and current construction costs and practices.
