Default Landscape design

I was wondering if anyone has hired a company to come and design your overall landscaping look? Someone that would come in for an initial consultation, come up with a design, transport all necessary tools, gardening accessories and do the work?

Any information is appreciated.

Thanks!

Thumbs up

I used Sundaura Alford and would HIGHLY recommend her.
I used her for both my country estate - 2 1/2 acres..and once again when we moved into the city.
Loved her design plan and her understanding of native plants , low maintenance and what will/won't work with the wildlife in the neighborhood..

suezieq4u - do you have a rough estimate on what she charges? It is not listed on the website. We have an idea of what we want to do but I would rather a professional to deal with it all from beginning to end.

I suggest you give her a call...
As I suspect pricing depends on needs of client.
We had/have a good size property and had wanted landscape design plans..both hard & soft scape..for front/back & both sides of my property.
We also wanted to ensure that all plants were native & approved for the area where we reside (as we back/side on to conservation area).

Once the design is done...you have the choice of going through contractors she recommends..or have the one's of your choosing to quote pricing on making the design plan come to fruition.

On my first property...I had the design done..and was able to complete my work in stages over several years as it was rather extensive.
On my current property , being a city lot...did it all at once.

We used Jason to do the design work, highly recommend him. He doesn't do any actual work though, but can recommend:

I am looking for more a less someone to give suggestion of plants and flowers for existing gardens, transport earth, mulch, flowers, plants, etc. and plant it all.
We do not need any stone work or large landscaping project designs.

Thank you
