Through the Garden is a design-build firm and will manage your project from the very first consult until the finishing touches on every element have been completed to your satisfaction. Our process begins with a conveniently set consultation appointment.with one of our professional designers The consultation will involve approximately 2 hours of your time and is not only an opportunity for us to understand the scope of the project, perform a site evaluation, and discuss your likes and dislikes. It is also an opportunity for you to get to know us, our company and our capabilities. We often sketch out some of our ideas; discuss plant material appropriate to your site and the budget requirements during this time. The consultation fee is $75.00.
In our design we can focus on a specific project you like to complete or if desired we develop a full master plan for the entire property surrounding your residence in order to have a comprehensive design at the basis of a phased completion of your dream garden.
If you choose to work with us, we will prepare a design proposal commensurate to the scope of your project. In general, the design fees start around $ 200.00 for a front foundation planting and walkway and will increase depending on the size of the project We will be able to completely asses the design fee at the consultation and will bring our portfolio, and examples of our design plans to the consultation. In some cases the project can be determined that same day. In those situations we can bypass the design proposal and prepare an installation proposal for you. The minimum fee for installation work is $1,250.00. We look forward to meeting you and designing your outdoor living environment so contact us to set the appointment for your consultation today!
