What information will you need from me to create a design?

We’ll ask you to complete an online workbook in which you’ll tell us about your property and goals, complete a questionnaire about your style and preferences, and send us photos of your house and yard.

How long will it take for me to get my design?

Once you submit your workbook, you’ll have your design in about three weeks. Sometimes the designer needs to clarify your information, or it can take a day or two for the designer and client to find a mutually convenient time for the phone consultations, but we aim to get your design to you as quickly as possible.

Is there a property size limit for your design services?

Our Full and Partial Property Design services apply to design areas of up to one-half of an acre. Please use our Contact form to request a custom quote for a larger property.

Do I have to have a property plan or survey in order to use this service?

No. If you have one, that’s great, but if not, we’ll create your base plan according to satellite data and photos. You’ll have an opportunity to correct any inaccuracies in the base plan before we create your design.

Is every design unique? Or do you use design templates?

We do not use templates or cookie-cutter designs; every design is created to suit the client’s needs and preferences, as well as the unique features of the landscape and architecture.

Will your design include plants that are right for my planting zone?

Our Partial or Full Property design service will give you general recommendations for what kinds of plant material to put where (e.g., “low evergreen groundcover” or “tall shrub to screen view”). You can take your plan to your local nursery and ask for their help selecting plants for your zone, or you can hire us at an hourly rate to create a planting design with specific varieties.

If I purchase two designs, will they be completely different?

We’ll apply our creativity and expertise to making the designs as different as possible. You may see similarities between the two designs simply because there is often one best place to locate a feature in the landscape.

Will I own my final design?

Yes, you (the client) will own your final design.

If you post my project on your site, how will my privacy be protected?

We respect our clients’ privacy and will never reveal your name or address, only a general location such as “Boston area” or “Northern California.”

Where can I read the fine print?
