Landscape Design and Plan
The landscape design and landscape design plans are an important part of accenting your home architecture. Landscape designs can include hardscaping, landscaping, water features and grass areas. Just as your home is designed before the first shovel hits the ground, the same consideration goes into your landscape design plan.

There is usually a design fee which most landscape companies charge for designing and laying out the landscape plan. Fees for this can range from $150.00 for a small design up to $1,500.00 for a full property evaluation and design. Most landscape companies will waive this fee if your hire them to do the project. Even if you don't hire them, it can be used as a guideline for implementing your overall design plan into phases over several years.
Dividing up the landscape installation plan is a common practice for budget conscious clients who want to start the landscape process but might not have the budget to do the entire landscape design plan at once.
