Questions & Answers

Q. When do we start the landscape project?

A. We recommend starting the design process as soon as you familiarize yourself with your site and have a list of your needs and wants. Ideally, the design can be done during the winter and construction can begin as soon as weather and scheduling permit.

Q. How much will my landscape cost?

A. We can design a landscape to fit any budget. A general rule of thumb is that a complete custom landscape will cost between 5 and 10% of the cost of your home. Prices will vary depending on total area, size of plants, amount of hardscaping, and various factors determined by site conditions.

Q. What are payment options?

A. Every contract is different but we generally require 30% down payment when the contract is signed. We then have a payment schedule based on phase completion and total length of the project. Final payment is due when the job is complete and we have done a walk-through with the client.

Q. Do water features need to be cleaned?

A. Yes! Even though we install filters and skimmers there is still some maintenance involved. Filters need to be cleaned periodically and skimmers cleaned out. A bi-yearly pressure washing of feature is recommended. Instruction on this process is given at the job completion walk-through.
