After your Initial or Advisory Consultation, you have the option to either receive a line-by-line estimate for your garden project, or to request a Custom Design. This step involves incorporating the vision you have for your garden with the information gathered during the Initial Consultation and combining them into a drawn-to-scale graphic in order to enhance your visualization and understanding of the proposal. All of our gardens incorporate herbs, companion plants, nutrient cycling, and secession plans for multiple plantings throughout the season. Design work is $75 per hour and usually takes anywhere from 2 to 7 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the garden space. However, if you decide to move forward with any garden work, we will credit 50% of your statement for the Custom Design toward the garden work costs!
