How We Work

Our full-service process is designed to give you the best possible experience and value—and a final landscape that’s way above and beyond your expectations. Beginning with a complimentary one-hour consultation at your home or other landscape site, our process continues with: Design, Installation and Establishment.

We start by making a complimentary visit to your home or other landscape site.* We’ll spend about an hour walking through your landscape, getting to know you, and learning more about what you’re looking for.

  •  Into Mid-Century modern style and picture yourself hosting craft cocktail hours on your deck, but don’t have much space?
  •  Need a low-maintenance landscape for your growing family, while keeping the yard kid-friendly?
  •  Remodeling your house and need to breathe new life into your landscape too?
  • New homeowner looking to set your yard apart from builder-grade landscape?
  •  Just finally ready to fix up the yard and make all the neighbors jealous?

With a good feel for your property and a clear understanding of what you envision for your ideal landscape, we can start the process to transform your ideas into a beautiful, sustainable design.

While our full-service process offers the best value for your investment, each phase is billed separately and can be offered a la carte, depending on your needs.

*Outside Austin city limits, a small fee may apply. A cancellation fee of $50 will be charged for any appointments cancelled without appropriate notice and/or client no-shows.


The Design phase is the heart and soul of our process. Incorporating our years of well-rounded landscape expertise and a healthy dose of creativity, we design a landscape based on your unique property and your vision, personal style, and goals.

As we begin this phase, we welcome your photos, links, Pinterest boards, and Houzz ideabooks—even if they’re all over the place or you’re not sure what your style is. Trust us: nerding out over design ideas is one of our favorite things to do.

And turning them all into a cohesive, sustainable landscape design involves more than just a simple layout sketch.

Through the course of the design process, every last detail will be expertly planned by one of our designers in a technical landscape design. Depending on the scope of your project, the final design will include:

  •  A professional landscape design blueprint
  •  Specific materials, including samples as needed
  •  Specific plants, including photos and planting information
  •  Garden accessory photos
  •  Detailed design notes
  •  Line-by-line cost estimates

In our Design Presentation meeting, we’ll talk through every element and incorporate your feedback and changes before asking you to sign off on the final design.

Now comes the fun part: seeing your landscape come to life! 

Depending on the time of year and the scope of your project, your installation could be scheduled for 1-3 months from the time you’ve signed off on your final design. We’ll make sure you’re updated and informed about expected timelines along the way.

Once installation time arrives, you can feel confident that we’ll take care of every last detail efficiently and responsibly. We use only the most sustainable landscaping practices and materials, and we work only with professional, trusted employees and subcontractors, to ease our impact on both your environment and your peace of mind.

After installation is complete, we can also provide our customized Establishment programs with our 90-day plant replacement plan.*

*Contact us for details


Our 90-Day Establishment Program allows us to extend the return on your investment in your new landscape, with the same care and pride as we’d show with our own. We use only sustainable, responsible, and environmentally friendly practices to make sure the installation of your new design is well-established.
