Inspired Designs for Do-It-Yourselfers
Landscape and Garden Design
Together we will assess your property and talk about your ideas, maintenance requirements, personal style and color preferences, and timeline for creating your garden or redesigning your existing landscaping. Consultations generally last about one hour, at which time I will provide you with a firm quote for a design. If you are ready to go ahead, I'll spend an additional half hour or so on your property for measurements and sketches.
The design process generally takes between four to six weeks. At our follow-up meeting, I will provide you with a scale drawing of your new design; a list of plants and their maintenance requirements; recommended suppliers; and how-to information about prepping your planting beds, laying paths and other hardscaping, planting, watering, and maintenance timelines. My goal is to give you the tools you'll need to implement your new design over time as a do-it-yourselfer or by contracting out the work yourself, and the know-how to keep your new landscaping looking good over the long term.
My fee for a single consultation and design for an average-size front or back yard in Austin generally ranges between $550 and $850, depending on size and scope of the work involved. Larger yards, including large suburban lots, may range between $800 and $1,100. If you'd like for me to start right away, I can usually do so (I require 50% payment up front), staying for another 30-45 minutes to take measurements and photos. The remainder is due when the design is delivered. Revisions are subject to an additional fee for time spent.
If you just need some direction to get going or to learn how to maintain your existing landscaping, a session of garden coaching may be what you're looking for. On an hourly basis, I can meet with you to brainstorm about design ideas, suggest plant choices, answer your questions about maintenance (when to prune, divide, fertilize, etc.), and ID plants. Coaching rate: $75/hr. (one-hour minimum).
Design and coaching services are available in the Austin area, including Cedar Park, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Steiner Ranch, and Oak Hill. If you are outside my range, I will be glad to offer a referral, if possible.
I am available for design or coaching consultations on weekday mornings through the midday. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you on your landscaping.
