I know it’s HOT outside and the last thing on your mind is landscaping in the dreadful heat, and rightfully so.
Every year it seems to work out this way. But actually, contrary to popular belief, summer is a great time to
make the call to Shades of Green to get the ball rolling on drawing-up and implementing a new Landscape
Design. As I’m writing this, I’m thinking … “why don’t customers think about this in August?”. It usually
takes about 3-4 weeks to create a landscape design. A design consists of the following components:
- Initial call to schedule a meeting with your designer. We can usually meet you within a week of the
- When we meet with you, we’d like to be able to get a copy of your survey plat, as well as a copy of
your pool design (if you have a pool). Your survey plat should be in with your closing documents.
- Make a list of priorities that you want to see accomplished…
- Patio expansion?
- Drainage issues?
- Lack of sunlight?
- A wish list of plants that you would like to see used in your project.
We will then get busy on your design plan using our traditional touch of native, well-adapted, drought
tolerant, low-maintenance concepts. We can do the front and back yard designs at the same time and price
them out separately, even if you are primarily interested in only one or the other. Heck, you might as well
have a plan for both even if you only do one part. And you’ll at least know what the out of pocket expenses
would be if you did both. The cost of the design is for your entire landscape, and the quote will all be
itemized so you can pick and choose what you want to do. We would like to help you regardless. The visit
with you to present your landscape design will be at the nursery so we can show you all the plant
recommendations in their living state – not a color-enhanced rendering.
So let’s get started today. Make that call, and we can get the process completed for you and ready for
planting … because FALL is for Planting! For more ideas, check out our Gallery Page on our website.
