Consultation Services:

If you are planning a new garden landscape or remodeling your existing space an onsite consultation by Charlotte Gresham can save you time and money. This onsite visit will last approx. two hours.

The cost of the consultation is $150.00 for about two (2) hour onsite visit.

The visit can be one of several areas.  Freshen your landscape. This means consult on what plants are tired, overgrown and need to be replaced.  What areas of your landscape and be improved. An brief audit of your irrigation system to determine if it is functioning correctly and watering all the plants.

Another purpose of the initial onsite visit can be to discuss your vision of the finished design, see the location and take photos as needed. This affords the designer the information needed to develop a basic placement sketch and an aprox estimate of costs associated with the proposed design.. A well planned and designed project that includes your personal involvement is time very well spent. The proper site selection and plant specification for each unique microclimate within your garden insures years of landscape satisfaction.

Future Work:

This leads to a professional Landscape Design of your home.  Once agreed to go ahead with a more detailed landscape design, measurements are taken, final plant lists and hardscape quotes are then done at extra charges.
