Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I chat on the phone a bit with my customers first and I come out for a free consultation and give my customers great ideas and a quote or I take a plat of survey and take pictures of their yard and go home and draw them and garden design if needed.
After presenting the design, I email pictures of plants in the design and provide a quote breakdown for installation of landscaping.
At that time you can choose your budget and how much you would like to get done this year.
We set up a date for installation typically about 2 weeks out and I take a deposit.
On planting day, we come and make your yard magnificent. Without a lot of noise or the use of chemicals.
I personally see every project through from start to finish all of my work and plants are guaranteed.
I strive to provide excellent customer service.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a lifetime of experience gardening in Chicagoland. I also went to school for two years of the Chicago Botanic Gardens and I have a certificate in ornamental horticulture.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
Free consultation at your home.
A hand-drawn design for a typical Suburban home would cost around $300 but if we only draw a portion of your property need price gets adjusted accordingly.
I give you a breakdown of the cost of every plant and the cost of mulch. The labor charge is typically around half the cost of the material .
I am very open and honest about fees and I never raise them unless you are asking me for additional tasks to be done. I pride myself on always staying on budget.
