Landscaping Frequently Asked Questions
What is your process for making my yard functional as well as beautiful?
First, we schedule a time to meet to discuss your project. During our consultation, we will go over what it is that you want and don’t want from your landscape. If a design is needed, we will come back to discuss design options and have plans made. Typically, within two weeks of our initial meeting, we will present you with a proposal and design concept for you to review.
When I accept your proposal, what is the next step?
Once a proposal is approved, we will prepare a contract outlining the terms of work as well as the project details.
What are your payment terms?
We require a deposit before we can schedule to begin work. Upon completion of the project, all balances must be paid in full.
