This type of consultation service is the first step in creating a design for transforming your landscape.  We will meet at your site, listen to your ideas, needs and goals, and evaluate the environmental conditions of your space (topography, sun exposure, and such).  We will offer verbal design suggestions and ideas for how you might create your ideal outdoor space as we tour your site.   Design consultation service is offered, by appointment, for a $100.00 fee for the first hour and $50/hour for any additional time.  After the consultation, if you are ready to proceed to the next step, we will provide a cost estimate for a landscape design customized to meet your needs and level of detail desired.  The fee for this time is also paid at the completion of the visit, but should you choose to move forward with a landscape design, we will apply the cost of this initial visit toward the design fee.
