Are you wondering what it takes to create the garden landscape of your dreams? Budgeting for a project can be difficult, especially if you are unsure of how much your value can get you.
Below you will find some items to consider when thinking about creating your family’s personal place to escape the stress of city life. You can review a few of our favorite landscapes with installation estimates for guidance when planning your landscape budget.
Remember, landscaping always can be done in phases, so if your time frame or budget doesn’t allow for instant paradise, then it’s no trouble for us to complete your work at a later date.
Our Landscaping Budget Range
Landscapes $5K and under – For a more modest budget, our team can complete wrap-around landscaping for the front of your home. We’ll create large areas for shrubs, lush plants, and even vibrant flowers. Let us dress up your front lawn or backyard with some small trees, bright plants, and more.
Landscapes in the $6K to $10K range – Our crew can build you a large flagstone patio and landscape area with plants that are well-adapted to your environment. We can install a pathway area with plants and flowers surrounding it to give your home extra dimension, and we’ll choose high-quality rocks and landscape materials to fill in the appropriate areas.
Landscapes in the $10K to $15K range – We can build colorful, drought-resistant landscapes that utilize native and well-adapted plants for easy maintenance and care. We will add trees, bricks to line a walkway, and stepping stones.
Landscapes $15K and over – The sky is the limit. We can install landscaping features over a period of time to make your dream home a reality – all at an affordable price. From shaded garden areas for seating arrangements and fire pits to wide open spaces with hardscape areas surrounding your patio, we can do anything you wish.
Hardscaping & Outdoor Living (Patios, Fences, Paths, Ponds/Pools/Spas)
How will you use your outdoor living area? Do you love to cook and eat outside often? Entertain friends and family in large or smaller groups? Will it be used by primarily adults or children or both? Do you have large or small animals? How do the summer sun and heat affect your yard? Do you want a larger patio space? Should it be covered? Do you need increased security or privacy with an improved fence? These answers will help you determine what hardscape features you may want to include in your overall landscape design.
Outdoor kitchens are all the rage right now, and there are some very nice designs available. If your yard is small, a movable grill and a fire pit offer the flexibility for making the best use of space. If you have a larger space, built-in grills, counter space and a dining area make the perfect area for entertaining. Living walls, tall fences and trees are invaluable during the summer months to shade us and offer a cooler place to enjoy! Dogs love an eye-level fence window to see what is going on beyond the fence. A variety of fence styles are available to provide security and privacy.

Turn your landscape into something special at night with today's efficient landscape lighting. Lighting transforms an attractive garden into a true work of art, extending your hours of enjoyment. Enjoy a new space for evening social gatherings with up-lighting and down-lighting in large or ornamental trees or directed at fountains, water features, or garden art. Everyone loves a welcoming, soft ambient glow illuminating the area for evening enjoyment. Enhance your safety and security with the illumination of steps, pathways, address blocks, pool or spa equipment, outdoor cooking and eating areas, and more.
Today, there are many beautiful choices available in solar or low voltage, energy efficient lighting. Lighting can be controlled so it automatically comes on and off based on time of day or the position of the sun, or it can be manually controlled. You'll want to be sure to add lighting to any new garden design, or we can help you retrofit an existing landscape to add hours of delight in your garden.
