Benefits

  • Increase landscape curb appeal, enjoyment and usefulness to your family.
  • Maximize the potential for growing food, attracting birds and butterflies, conserving home energy, or managing rain water.
  • Decrease mowing and other maintenance chores by creating a landscape that cares for itself.

Process

We will visit your landscape two or more times, depending upon the size of the space and the desired level of detail.

Initial Visit

  • An ecological designer visits you at your landscape for 30-60 minutes.
  • The designer walks your landscape with you to gain a general understanding of your goals, ideas and budget.
  • Shortly after the initial visit, the designer sends you a proposal and cost estimate that defines the details and scope of the design.
  • Once the proposal and estimate are agreed upon, another visit is scheduled to thoroughly understand your vision and landscape.

Follow Up Visits

  • Concept designs or preliminary designs for all areas will be shared and refined during follow up visits. Each visit lasts approximately 2 hours.
  • A detailed master plan showing the exact location of all plant species will be reviewed.
  • An implementation plan showing how to create all areas will be provided.

Research

  • Measurements are taken for a detailed base map.
  • Specific plant varieties are researched and selected based upon your goals and preferences.
  • Plants are researched and placed to create harmonious, beautiful and self-supporting groupings.
