Design & Consultation

The first step is always listening. 

Because our gardens are customized to harmonize with the surrounding landscape, on-site consulting is often necessary.

During a 1-2 hour consultation, we’ll analyze your microclimate, test your soil/analyze results if necessary ($15/soil test), assess drainage, answer questions you may have, and begin thinking about design considerations, plant selection, and a long term plan for the site. Designing a landscape is similar to a chess game; it's important to think about your next move as well as think 10 moves ahead. This way, each decision we make harmonizes with a future decision, leading to a connected, holistic, and beautiful landscape. 

If helpful, we’re happy to provide a master plan of the site. We can often convey the necessary information by marking layouts on-site, talking about specifics, providing a written scope of work description, and drawing sketches. $70/hour ($100/hr if the travel is over 30 minutes from Arlington) is our consulting rate and $100/hr is our design rate. 

Customers appreciate our honest, communicative, competent, and sustainably-minded approach. We look forward to exploring your property's potential and starting a collaborative dialogue with you. At HomeHarvest, we're builders at heart and our design process is often linked with an installation. 

Share your vision with us. We'll work together to make it happen. 

HomeHarvest changed our lives and made our home more beautiful.
