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.

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

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.

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

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

Is there a size limit for the Garden Bed Design?

The Home Outside Garden Bed Design service is for planting areas of up to 300 square feet. Please use our Contact form to request a custom quote for a larger garden bed.

Will I get a delivery of live plants with this service?

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 use to purchase plants with confidence, or give to your contractor to obtain and install.

How many 3D Views will I get with my purchase?

If you purchase a Garden Bed Design + 3D Views, you’ll receive four 3D views.

Can I decide to add 3D Views to my service during or after the design process?

Yes! Ask your Home Outside designer to add 3D Views to your service at any time.
