Landscape Consultations

On-Site Consultations & Landscape Evaluation

Consultations are a great way to learn about your garden and address issues that may be happening in the landscape. During this on-site initial consultation we will meet one another and discuss the current condition of the site. We will idealize a vision for your project whether you’re a DIY homeowner or would like a custom design and/or installation.

What it includes:

  • Pre-Consultation Survey
  • 45-90 minute on-site consultation & landscape evaluation. 90 minutes is usually ample time for a consultation. Most consultations last 45-60 minutes. You may choose to extend the consultation if you have a lot of questions about plants, garden care etc.
  • A summary of typed notes from the consultation sent to you by email.

Some topics that may be discussed:

  • The functionality of the garden space
  • Your needs and wants for your new garden space
  • Design ideas
  • Plant suggestions: removals, or additions
  • Issues in the landscape, like functionality, drainage, invasive plants, plant diseases and pests
  • General maintenance suggestions
  • Plant identification
  • Plant care
  • Resources for plants, materials, or references for other professional services

Everyone benefits from a consultation, wether you’re a diy-er, recently moved into a new home, or want a new or refreshing planting design for your garden. Clients have found consultations to be very useful and they have saved client’s time, energy, resources, and money in many ways.

A consultation may also be very beneficial when considering purchasing or selling a home. A landscape that needs a lot of work that could be a negotiating factor that could save you hundreds to thousands of dollars.
