-If you would like a landscape installation, the designer can meet you at the garden center (different appt time), to review ideas, view plant suggestions, and provide and itemized estimate.
-If you’re only looking for ideas to install yourself, the designer can provide rough sketches and a plant list, if desired.
-If you’re looking for professional horticulture advice such as plant/tree identification, pruning advice, soil questions, or drainage issues a summary of the consult can be provided.
Larger scale projects, such as extensive master plans will require additional design time which will be billed at $75/design hour. Further details will be provided by your landscape designer.
