Affordable Landscaping Ideas Front Yard

Once I have my sketch from you, then what? Do you give referrals for contractors? What about buying the plants?

Each garden is very different, but I will try to give you all of the information you need to make it happen. That might be contractor referrals, or the name of a good gardener. That might be information on what nursery to get the plants from, what pottery store to buy the pottery from, or even where to get the most affordable mulch and compost.

What if we need more than two hours?

I am happy to do up to four hours in a single day, if the two hours isn’t quite enough. For some gardens, you will need quite a bit more design than we can accomplish in two hours. If that is the case, I’ll recommend to you that we move on to the Landscape Plan option. Please hover over the Services menu and click on Landscape Plans for more info on those.

My front yard needs more than just plants. It is a blank slate, but it is small. Would a consultation still work for me?

Yes, it probably would. Here is an example of a design for a small front yard where I was able to create a design that included the hardscape (patios and walkways), and then use tracing paper to lay the plants in over the top of the design. Here is what that looked like:

What if I am doing a pretty significant change, like adding a pool, but I already have a plan that shows where everything will go? Can you help with just the plants and picking the materials/colors for the pavement?

Yes, I think we could do this but we should probably chat on the phone first to make sure. Here is an example of a project like that. I think it turned out beautifully!

This was the original sketch:

And here is the project after it was built:
