Indicative Pricing

Since all projects are unique, prices for design and plans vary. Since consults and sketch consults are based on meetings at the site, without revisions, we can offer them at the flat fee prices shown below. All prices are indicative; we will send you a proposal for your approval following either type of consult before we continue any additional design work.


Flat fee payment due at end of consult

out of area fees may apply

Verbal Consults

or sketches

Sketch Consults

or sketches.  


Can sometimes be used for simple planting plans, front yard lawn conversion plans.


About Consults…

You can upgrade from a consult to a sketch consult within 30 days of your consult by paying the $250 difference between the two services.

Sketch consults are not typically fully complete plans; they’re idea sketches for what can happen, sometimes simple planting plans for front yards with simple, regular spaces.

All consults are based on meetings lasting 60-90 minutes on site. Additional fees may apply if this time is exceeded.

Out of area fees apply to consults farther than 60 miles from our office in Sacramento.
