Landscape Design Consultations
If you would like some professional advice, my landscape design consultations may be perfect for you.
For a reasonable fee, I can provide you with the right kind of
information and specific ideas that will help you make correct choices
to create the wonderful landscape you are hoping for.
So many people have come to me after making numerous attempts to create a landscape on their own.
However, this is very difficult for most homeowners.
A professional eye can make all the difference.
I can advise you in any of the following areas and more:
plants to choose for your location and conditions. Once I know your zip
code, I can determine your planting zone and know the specific plants
that grow where you live.
- Which paving materials
you should use and why. This depends on your house style/siding, any
surrounding hardscape, and your budget.
- What is
the correct size of a patio, based on your requirements. Let's fit in
the furniture that you want and go from there! Makes sense, right?
to handle your slope. Whether you want to create more useable space,
eliminate drainage problems, or just prefer flatter areas, working with
slopes can be done creatively.
- Advice on
lighting - types, spacing and quantities. Do you want lighting only for
function, or would you like to light up interesting features such as
trees, sculptures, fountains, a pond, etc.?
to do in very shady conditions. There are trees, shrubs, perennials and
ground covers that actually prefer the shade. I have my favorites and
will make suggestions.
- How to work steps into
your walkways or patios. This needs to be figured out based on the
height differences. Correct riser/tread relationships exist for comfort.
you need retaining walls.....or not. I prefer to re-grade where
possible to save on costs. However, if you prefer a wall or it is the
best solution, I will help you with this.
homeowners are concerned with landscaping costs. As part of the
consultation, I can provide you with rough cost estimates. This will
help you with your landscape planning.
My fees are reasonable. Please contact me for more information.
