Landscape Design Package
(includes Landscape Master Plan and Hardscape Plan )
Landscape Master Plan
The typical fee for a Landscape Design Package ranges from $1,000 – $3,500. Actual fees are based on the size of the property and the scope of the project.
The Design Process
1. Initial Consultation and Site Visit (Travel fees may apply)
The design process begins with an initial consultation. We tour your property and discuss your answers to our Landscape Design Questionnaire. Your answers will help us better understand your landscaping needs and goals. You will have an opportunity to review our design portfolio and discuss our design contract.
After this initial meeting, Earthborn Landscape Design will put together a design proposal for your landscape project.
2. Site Evaluation and Analysis
We begin with an evaluation of the site to create a scaled base map from which the design can be developed. We also analyze the site for existing conditions that may influence the design.
Measurements and photographs of the site will be taken.
3. Development and Presentation of the Preliminary Design
A preliminary design will be developed based on findings from the site evaluation and analysis as well as your goals and requirements.
The preliminary design shows an overall layout of the plants and hardscape features.
4. Presentation of the Final Design
The final design includes the layout of all new planting beds and hardscape features, a plant list including quantity and recommended sizes for each plant, and landscape notes regarding planting and installation requirements.
You will receive multiple copies of the final landscape design and one copy of a hardscape-only design. All designs are drawn to scale and can be used by your installer to bid and install your landscape project.
Hourly consultations are available at $100/hour (one hour minimum).
On-Site Landscape Design
Some small-scale landscape projects can be designed on-site during a consultation. These designs will be simple sketches, drawn to scale, and will include a complete plant list as well as the quantity and recommended size of each plant. Designs may include suggestions for hardscape materials such as mulch, edging and accent boulders. Notes will be provided with information regarding planting and installation requirements.
Alternatively, some on-site designs can be achieved with the use of landscape paint to designate new bed lines and landscape flags to identify plants and plant placement.
