Design your unique and original West Coast Landscape
Creating a high quality landscape on the West Coast starts with a unique landscape design. The first step is to meet and discuss what you are looking for, so we can get a detailed idea of the landscape concept you have in mind..
After our initial landscape meeting, we then create computer-generated drawings. These include the positioning of pathways, driveways, patios, planting beds & retaining walls etc. With this drawing we are able to give you a visual representation of the concept before we even start building.
By designing a drawing, we are able to portray our concept to you. It also gives us the chance to iron out any detail 'wrinkles' and see how everything fits with your budget.
How much does a consultation and design cost on the West Coast?
Our consultations usually last around 1.5 - 2.0 hours and are $85. Our Design concepts start at $300 (and up) depending on size of the project and complexity of the design.
