The most popular design choices we offer would be the "quick design." After a thorough (free) consultation to determine your needs our designer will go out into your yard and begin to visualize each area to be designed. Once the vision is in place our designer will then draw your landscape design on an 8.5"x11" piece of paper. It includes all the necessary information such as a plant list, number of needed plants, new bed shapes and sod areas, decorative retaining wall and patio locations, general lighting locations, etc... The design is not exactly to-scale and once the installation process begins there may be a need for some minor changes. The process typically takes about 3-4 hours for a small yard and 5-6 hours for larger yards and costs $80 per hour. We have provided our landscape design and landscaping services as far west as Boone, NC and as far east as Beaufort, NC.
