Partial Property Design


A Partial Property can be your front yard, back yard, side yard, or whatever area you need help with, up to 60% of your property. Need some curb appeal for your entry? A back yard that combines outdoor entertaining with playspace for the kids? A creative solution for a bare side yard? Tell us how you want to use the space and what you like and don’t like about your existing landscape. In just a few weeks, you’ll have a beautiful, creative, and practical design that you can give to a contractor or build yourself. If you’d like to receive two different schemes for your draft and final designs, choose the ‘2 designs’ option below.

Add 3D Views to your design service for full color three dimensional previews of how the design will improve your space. See the effect the proposed design will have on your landscape’s sun, shade, and privacy. 3D Views will give you a better understanding of the proposed outdoor spaces, gardens, and landscape elements so you can more easily imagine yourself enjoying them!

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 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.

Is there a property size limit for this design service?

Our Partial Property Design service applies to a front or backyard design area of up to one-quarter of an acre. Please use our Contact form to request a custom quote for a larger property.

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. For your final deliverables, you may choose to receive two final designs or a hybrid of your favorite features of both (as discussed with your designer during the screenshare call).

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

If you purchase a Partial Property Design + 3D Views, you’ll receive four 3D Views.

If I purchase two designs, will I get 3D Views of both design alternatives?

We’ll create 3D Views of your favorite of the two design schemes. If you opt to have a hybrid final design created of the two draft designs, we’ll create 3D Views of the hybrid. If you’d like to see both of the designs in 3D, no problem, we’ll help you purchase a second 3D Views add-on service.

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.
