Investment

The American Society of Landscape Architects recommends spending about 5-10% of your home's worth on your landscaping. The good news is that new landscaping can add as much as 15 percent to the value of your home compared to other houses on your street.

Landscape Design 

 

We charge $75 per hour for landscape design, after an initial free consultation to determine the issues and needs being addressed, typically less than one hour. There are many variables affecting the time put into a design and the cost, such as: the size/scope and complexity of the project, the level of clarity regarding objectives at the onset, the ease of communication and agreement between all parties involved, and the number of iterations required to reach the ultimate plan.

What you get:

  • Ample opportunities throughout the process to explain the issues you’re experiencing and express your ideas and desires for the new landscaping

  • The design itself is a two dimensional, roughly to scale, color PDF, emailed to you

  • Structures and plants will be clearly identifiable and labeled

  • The design includes a unique monicker for every plant being proposed as well as a color “real life” picture of each plant

  • Detailed information and care guidelines for each plant are provided prior to or immediately following installation

  • Plant spacing on the design represents anticipated mature size of the plants

Low cost: $225
High cost: $750
Typical cost: $300-$375

Labor Rates & Job Cost Estimates 

 

Our default minimum labor rate is $65 per man, per hour, including job related travel time to transport personnel, equipment, and materials to and from job sites. Materials, rentals, and hauling fees are additional to labor charges. We encourage customers to carefully review any estimate before moving forward. As job site conditions and circumstances vary, unforeseen challenges can arise, and changes/additions are often made mid-project, the final cost may be above, below, or exactly matching the estimate. We attempt to monitor costs as projects progress and inform you of significant deviations from the initial estimate as we go.

What you get:

  • Written estimates are typically broken down as line items and are intended to include all anticipated costs associated with the job 

  • Estimates are free, unless otherwise communicated, and design fees apply when applicable (landscape design is detailed above)

  • Plant prices, sizes and exact types are subject to availability and subject to (approved) substitutions, but what we’re aiming for is clearly identified in the estimate

  • Estimates are open to negotiation until a final version/plan is approved

  • The first version of an estimate may not include detailed product specifications, and those final decisions can affect the cost

Small job: $600 - $3,000
Typical job on lower end: $3,000 - $7,500
Typical job on higher end: $7,500 - 20,000

Big job: $20,000 - $45,000
Typical job: $3,500 - $9,500
