Your designer will create and confirm the Base Plan of your garden area’s existing conditions, including nearby elements, plants to keep, sunlight conditions, etc.
Draft Plan Review
When your draft design is ready, you’ll have a 20-minute Zoom screenshare meeting to review the plan and discuss adjustments with your designer.
Your beautiful final design will be a colorful plan view and a diagrammatic planting plan. Plant list coordinates with photos of the plants and links to find them online.
A beautiful planting design for your garden bed (up to 300 sq. ft.) that includes:
You’ll get a full-color, high-res, printable 11×17” PDF of your final custom garden bed design complete with designer’s notes, planting plan, and a specific plant list perfect for your space and style.
Designer’s notes will call out the garden design’s structure, features, seasonal interest, and intentions as well as any coordinating edging or related hardscape materials.
Your plan includes a detailed Plant List of specific plants that you and your designer choose to suit your preferences and garden size, e.g., Coneflower, Echinacea purpurea ‘Magnus.’
3D Views — Add-On Service
Add 3D Views to your garden design service to bring the garden to life.
We’ll send you a link to complete a quick online workbook in which you’ll tell us about your space, style, and preferences, and send us photos of where you’d like to plant your garden.
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 Zoom consultation, but we aim to get your design to you as quickly as possible.
No. If you have one, that’s great, but if not, we’ll create your base plan according to satellite data, your measurements, and photos. You’ll have an opportunity to correct any inaccuracies in the base plan before we create your design.
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 surrounding context.
This design service does not include shipment of live plants or installation services. You will get a planting plan with a plant list that you can either hand off to a landscape contractor to gather and install, or use the list to shop confidently.
Yes, you (the client) will own your final design.
We respect our clients’ privacy and will never reveal your name or address, only a general location such as “Boston area” or “Northern California.”
If you purchase a Partial Property Design + 3D Views, you’ll receive four views total. With Full Property Design + 3D Views, you’ll receive up to eight views total.
The size limit for Partial Property Designs is 0.25 acre. The size limit for Full Property Designs is 0.5 acre. For larger properties, contact us at [email protected] to get a custom quote, or reach out to your Home Outside designer directly to discuss options.
You will not get an interactive 3D model, but you will receive multiple views, or snapshots, of the 3D model from different angles. The multiple views will describe the full landscape scene.
It will take about one extra week to create a 3D model of your property and to incorporate the 3D Views into your final Home Outside design package.
Yes! Ask your Home Outside designer to add 3D Views to your service at any time.
All planting shown in your 3D views is conceptual, unless otherwise stated in your Home Outside design notes. 3D Views will help describe the overall design intent for your proposed garden beds, including approximate height, width, evergreen versus deciduous, and tree versus shrub or perennial.
