Hand Drawn Sketches
For no additional design fee, we can draw a quick hand-drawn sketch of your site, and identify where desired design elements best fit based on your specific environment.
This option is best suited for low-budget, simple garden transformations or without extensive earthworks, rainwater or greywater systems, or constructed elements.
This option also works well for clients with already established visions, who simply need support with installation.

For lower budget garden transformations, we can create a simple, to-scale, computer design that identifies the location and size of each garden element in the design, and gives specific ecosystem-appropriate variety selections for plants included in your design.
This option is best for clients looking for support with plant and variety selection, and for clients whose vision is still being developed.
Seeing a to-scale garden design can be very helpful to make more concrete, clarify, and enliven this vision.
Depending on the size and scope of the project, simple designs usually require 4-8 hours of design time.

For more complex garden transformations, we can create to-scale computer designs that include photos and hyperlinks to information about all the plant varieties included in the design.
This option is most helpful for clients with a larger design budget who are less familiar with California native and perennial edible plant varieties, and want to use their design as a learning tool to build recognition and understanding of the plants in their designed landscape.
Depending on the size and scope of the project, complex designs usually require 10-14 hours of design time.
