Is there any charge for the first visit with a landscape designer?

No. Our first time visit for your consulation is free of charge.

What is the on-site consultation?

The on-site consultation between the landscape designer and homeowner serves as the foundation for developing a landscape plan that meets the needs of the client. Through the on-site consultation process the landscape designer will learn of the landscape goals of the client including any tree, shrub and perennial preferences as well as favorite color combinations and the budget (if known). The landscape designer will also answer any questions the client may have concerning landscaping and business practices. Finally, if the client decides to proceed with a landscape design and project bid, the landscape designer will measure and photograph the client's property and begin the landscape design and cost estimate.

What information should I provide at the on-site consultation?

The client should be prepared to provide a general idea of what they want to accomplish with landscaping and a list of any specific trees, shrub or perennials that they would like to be included in the landscape design. Additionally, a copy of the client's lot plan or property survey will be helpful and will reduce the cost of the landscape design.

What happens after the on-site consultation?

If the homeowner requests a landscape design and installation estimate, SpringView Landscapes will prepare a design and estimate using the information gathered during the on-site consultation. Approximately two weeks after the on-site consultation, SpringView Landscapes will present the design to the homeowner along with an estimate to complete the landscape project.

Is there a fee for the landscape design?

Yes. For a residential project, landscape design fees will generally range from $200 to $800 depending on the size and complexity of the proposed landscape area. However, a portion of the landscape design fee is credited back to the client when the proposed landscape project is built by SpringView Landscapes. Generally speaking, it costs the same to build a poorly designed landscape as it does to build a well-designed one, so why not start with a great design? SpringView Landscapes makes a substantial time investment in each landscape design to ensure the client's needs and desires are met by the new landscape and that the new landscape will provide our clients enjoyment and beauty for many years to come.

What guarantee does SpringView Landscapes provide for its projects?

SpringView Landscapes guarantees all trees, shrubs and perennials for one full year from the date of installation. Hardscape items, including brick paver patios and retaining walls are guaranteed to the client for five years from the date of installation.

Are there any limitations on the plant guarantee?

Yes. SpringView Landscapes will replace any plant that does not survive the one-year period one time. However, the one-year guarantee does not cover care neglect (including, but not limited to, under watering, over watering or mechanical damage) or damage caused by abnormal weather conditions, chemicals, animals, fire, flood, tornado, vandalism, theft or other factors beyond our control. The plant guarantee is also voided if the plants are moved from their original placement.

How much can I expect to spend on a professional landscape?

The price of a professional landscape installation depends upon the size and complexity of the project and the size of the trees and shrubs used in the project. An industry rule-of-thumb is that a homeowner's total investment in landscaping (including trees, shrubs, irrigation system, retaining walls, decks and patios) should be 5% to 10% of a home's value. Landscapes can be installed in stages to spread the total cost over several years.
