Julia Weese-Young, one of our lead designers, offers this very sought-after service. Need some advice on planting, hardscape, budgeting, composition, ecosystem integration, and more? During a 2hr consult, clients receive individualized, in-person, on-site recommendations on plant placement, garden layout, best plant varieties for our region, where to get supplies, maintenance tips, hardscape ideas and more. You’ll walk away with a rough, hand-drawn plan with notes (8.5 x 11), a plant list and other recommendations. This type of plan is best suited for someone who wants to brainstorm and get initial ideas, and maybe even install on their own. While its not typically enough detail to hand off to a contractor (it won’t be fully measured out), it’s a way to collect and organize all your ideas on one page — and see if any of them are viable for your space. Plan to schedule consults out at least two weeks to four weeks out in the high season (Spring). Flat fees are based on location, and help offset driving time and mileage.
Payment is due at time of scheduling (via credit card).

See what clients are saying about the 2hr Consult:
“Our 2 hour consultation with Julia was about the best 2 hours we’ve spent with a designer EVER. We got so much accomplished and she really was able to take our jumbled mix of thoughts and priorities into a cohesive plan we were both excited about. The drawings were beautiful to boot and really helped us ‘see’ a vision for what our landscaping can do for our house and family.” -Lindsey N, Beacon Hill.
If you are not sure whether you want to go with a 2hr Consultation or a Full Landscape Design, call us to discuss and usually it’s easy to determine over the phone. (This service usually cannot provide enough detail to hire a separate landscape installer.)
