What are the stages of a typical project?

Consult, Design, Install

We first start with a consultation with our lead designer for a site walk through, assessing site conditions, determining goals/needs, and visualizing what's possible. After this, we can accurately bid the design costs.

To get rolling on design we require a deposit equaling 1/2 of the overall design fee. Our designers will help expand on your vision, layout a site plan, and create a detailed installation plan. The finished design will include exact labor & materials costs within your budget. You will also find plant attributes, ecosystem services, and how you can interact with this landscape (ex bee/bird watching, edible plants, etc) in this final design plan.

Depending on availability, you can expect this whole process to take between 4-8 weeks.

We use a combination of intensive companion planting to attract beneficial insects that do much of the pest control work, while also using organic methods physical removal and Dr Earth products.
