Naturalistic planting design and installation management

We specialize in planting design for meadow styled gardens and xeriscaped spaces. We design primarily with grasses, wildflowers and woody perennials that are native to Florida and suited to your region and habitat.

Design Process

1.  Consultation

During our first visit, we will walk your site and listen to what your hopes and dreams are for your space. If you have a survey of your property that may be helpful in the development of a planting plan, now would be a good time to have that ready. Consultation includes the following.

  • Travel up to 30 miles from Ocoee, FL

  • Up to 1 hour of consultation time

  • Property research prior to our visit

  • An overview of our design strategy

  • Proposal for design work 

The fee for this visit will be $75

2. Proposal for planting design

After our initial consultation, we'll prepare a proposal for design work which will be emailed to you. This proposal when signed will serve as our contract. The $75 consultation fee can be applied toward the cost of your design service.

Design projects start at $900 

3. Site visit

After we have agreed to work together and have a signed contract, our designer will return to the site to take measurements, photos and collect any other information pertinent to the design.

4. Presentation of design

Within a few weeks, we will contact you to schedule a time to get together to present the design and address any questions you may have. We look forward to your feedback and if any changes need to be made, we will make those before presenting a final plan. If no changes need to be made, we can move on to the installation phase! Your design includes the following.

  • Planting plan to scale

  • Plant list with species, size & quantities of each

  • One revision 

5. Installation management

We want to be there during the installation of your project, to ensure the design intent is met by overseeing the layout of the plants before installation. We also like to let some of the design happen in the field as well. Our design service includes installation management with the following.

  • Bid for installation

  • Oversight of installation and layout of plant material on site


Q. Do you perform the installation?

A. No, we don't. We work closely with the nursery where your plants will be sourced from but they are a separate company that will give you a bid for the installation. 

Q. Do you design hardscaping?

A. We specialize in planting design and do not design hardscapes or other exterior features. If those are already in place, and adjacent or pertinent to the planting area, we can plot those to show them in the design for reference but we do not design new hardscaping.
