What the Home Visit Includes: The landscape design appointment (for areas up to 2, 500 square feet) includes walking your garden, discussing the project, a plant list and a hand-drawn planting diagram. The plant list and hand-drawn diagrams will be completed off-site and presented within 3-4 weeks. If your project involves items other than plants and the installation of plants, such as irrigation, lighting or hardscape your designer can request separate bids from one of our contracted installers. Cost: $400. Covers four-hours of a designer’s time, and a $100 Armstrong Gift Card usable for landscape or in-store purchases. Total designer time will be four hours, which includes: initial home visit, off-site drawing time and post install follow-up. If more than four hours is needed our designer will let you know and extra hours can be purchased at the rate of $75 per hour. Blueprint Option: If your dream garden requires extensive planting, irrigation or hardscaping, you’ll want to have a blueprint to work from. Our design expert will visit your home and consult with you before having a blueprint plan created for your project. It will include a planting plan and construction-grade drawings. Blueprint fee varies; a quote will be given during the home visit.

Thank you. We are so pleased with the work that Jeff and his crew did. Everything turned out perfect - rain and all!!! - Dave, Orange

4. If you want your yard to blossom and flourish bust still do not have enough time to maintain it, consider planting low-fuss lilies.
