We'll turn your property's to-do list into a logically beautiful plan.

our process

1. do your homework

Brainstorm your property wishlist. Here's a few questions to get you started.

What do I want to DO in my outdoor space? Maybe it's trail running through a prairie, hunting, berry picking and marshmallow roasting. Do I want to grow my own food? Or simply watch the birds and butterflies from the couch as I sip my morning coffee.

Do I have any “trouble spots” to address, like stormwater or erosion issues, invasive plants, or bare soil left by new construction?

2. Contact us

Submit our "Contact Us" form including any survey maps, grading plans, aerial photos, building plans or other data that is useful in understanding the scope of your project. We'll be in touch shortly!

3. estimate

After better understanding your project scope, we will create an estimate that may include consultations (on-site or virtual), travel, site measurements, design/plan development hours, material procurement estimates (if applicable) and print fees. 


All estimates are subject to change based on the number and complexity of add-ons and/or revisions.

4. Consult

If your estimate/plan includes a consult, we will schedule that. We strongly recommend on-site consults for complex projects and/or if land owners don’t have data about their property. It’s important for us to design around soil type, drainage, light conditions, existing vegetation, noxious weeds, or erosion potential. 

5. Design

Design work starts after we have all the data we need. Typically, expect to see a first draft within 1-3 months - depending on the time of year. Winter months are the best time to plan! We'll continue to collaborate with you until you love your design!

6. softscape brokering

Not all landscape installation contractors source their own materials. Your design may also call for custom seed mixes or specialty items. Or, you may want to install plants or seeds yourself. We can help coordinate the procurement and delivery of softscape materials when and where you need them.
