How It Works
It’s easy. All you need are a few photos, a computer or mobile device, and an internet connection.
Purchase a Session with a Landscape Designer and complete our online workbook to share your site photos and preferences so we can prepare some great ideas for you.
Join your designer for your 30-minute or 60-minute screenshare session and talk about your landscape, gardens, goals, and ideas while viewing your photos on your designer’s screen.
You’ll gain creative insights, a connection with an expert designer, and the confidence to move forward! We’ll follow up with a Design Proposal for the services right for you.
Your Design Proposal Can Include
Master Plan with Design Notes
An illustrative plan showing the elements of your outdoor space organized into a beautiful design that flows well and works with your life. Discuss ideas with your designer and give feedback during the process. You’ll get a full-color, printable 11×17” PDF that includes designer’s notes explaining design features, general materials, and practical and aesthetic recommendations.
See your landscape design come to life with 3D Views. This can be particularly helpful if you’re not used to looking at plan view drawings and/or if your property is on a steeper grade. 3D Views will give you a preview of how your space, views, light, and shadows will change with the designed improvements. We’ll give you views from multiple angles so you can be confident about the proposed design in the context of your property.
If you need general help picking out the right plants for the right locations on your property, rather than a fully detailed design plan, we can help. Your designer can put together a palette of plants that would thrive in your growing conditions; you or your contractor can make the final choices on how many plants, and where exactly to place them in your yard. If you’re looking for a fully detailed planting plan that shows what exactly to plant and where, we can do that too.
Want more plan information to finalize your landscape design? If you can provide the detailed base information for your property, we can provide the more technical, black-and-white plans you’ll need to turn your design into a reality. Design dimensions, square footages of proposed materials, quantities of new plants to install – just ask, and we’ll draw it all up for you.
Custom Landscape Design Projects
Landscape design costs typically range from $800-$5,000, depending on size, complexity, level of detail, and the option for 3D Views.
You’ll complete an online workbook to tell us about your property and share your landscape goals and photos of your house and yard.
Once you have your design consultation, approve a quote for services, and submit any additional photos or measurements your designer needs, you’ll have your design in about 5-6 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 phone consultations, but we aim to get your design to you as quickly as possible.
Typically, our services work best when applied to design areas of up to one-half of an acre, however we’re happy to consider a custom quote for planning for larger properties as well.
Yes! Ask your Home Outside designer to add 3D Views to your service at any time.
Hey, (the design) looks awesome! Thanks for addressing our needs and concerns. Thanks again for making it an easy and fun process.HomeownerBackyard Landscape Design
I am so happy I can’t even stand it! I am so grateful I made that phone call that day and that you were there. Contractor is thrilled to execute your work.HomeownerFull Property Landscape Master Plan + Garden Design
Loved working with Home Outside. Rather than an automated process, I communicated via email and phone with real people who listened to what we needed and wanted and designed our landscape accordingly. I would recommend this service to anyone.HomeownerBackyard Landscape Design + Garden Design
Because my new home is in a rural area with no access to local landscape designers, it was going to cost a fortune to bring one here due to all the travel expense. Home Outside solved that problem for me. I provided a site plan, some photos, and a detailed description of what I was hoping to achieve, and a couple of weeks later I had a beautiful, well-thought out design for both front and rear yards.HomeownerFull Property Landscape Master Plan
