Welcome to the start of your garden design journey!

How does the consultation process work?

  1. Contact me to set up a time to meet at your home.
  2. We’ll meet on site and walk through your property, discussing all the things you like and dislike about it. (Don’t worry if your “property” is a 12′ x 24′ urban space! I love small gardens.) This is your time to really show me what you’re thinking about. I will listen, take photos with your permission, and give you lots of ideas. Occasionally, this is enough to get a client moving forward on their own, especially for people who enjoy gardening or DIY projects. In this instance, our meeting serves more as a garden coaching experience.
  3. My consultation fee is $100, due at our meeting. This covers my time and helps some potential clients decide if they’re really ready to take this step.
  4. After our meeting, I’ll send you an email recapping everything we discussed to be sure we’re on the same page. I will include a design contract for you at this time. (Typical design fees start at $800.)
  5. If you decide you’d like to work together, simply return your contract and we will be ready to move on to the next phase- dreaming up your new landscape.
