Estimating

Consultation or estimate?

Estimate is when you know exactly what and where you want to plant and build, but are not sure how much it will cost. When we know the details of materials and structures, we will be pleased to cost estimate your landscaping project. In other words, you need an estimate when you have developed a design concept. Estimating services are free of charge!

Consultation, however, is when you are not sure what kind of landscaping you want to build, type of garden to plant and you would like us to give ideas and suggest the best possible solutions. Landscaping consultation is a paid service.

We suggest that when considering any type of landscaping or garden development you begin with consultation. If you are building a new house it is a good idea to make a landscape design plan early to merge your house concept with your outdoors.

Plan early to save money later!
