The initial visit is FREE. However, should the first half hour lead into a full consultation (see below), then the visit will be billed at $85 per hour. Should this visit lead into a contract, the fee is waived. Additional travel time of 45 minutes or longer will be charged at a reduced rate.
A professional design consists of a complete conceptual hardscape and softscape design that the do-it-yourselfer and/or construction contractor will use to install the landscape(s). Designs range in price from $500 and up depending on the size and complexity of the property or garden. Many designs, however, are better done at an hourly rate ($85 per hour): spot designs (partials), planting plans, hardscape only, quick drawings, etc.
A consultation visit -- to aid you in determing basic design strategies, selection of plantings, and/or to provide you with basic sketches -- shall be billed at $85 per hour. Travel time may apply.
