Consultation Services:

If you are in the process of 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. 1 hour. The cost of the consultation is $135.00 for the 1 hour onsite visit.

The purpose of the initial onsite visit is 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.
