GardenWise landscape design build - carpenter, checking some measurements. Northern Virginia, Washington D.CGardenWise will begin the landscape design-build process, initially focusing on design, with an initial site meeting. We will first examine the architecture of your home, including the important view and access points to the garden spaces. Undesirable views to neighboring properties will also be examined and noted. We will discuss the landscape improvements you wish to undertake and consider your personal style, along with the home’s architectural features. The initial site meeting/consultation is at no charge.

We can review any images you have gathered on your own from online sources, such as Houzz, or even your stack of dog-eared design magazines!

We design to fit your budget. Typically, we begin developing a Landscape Master Plan for your entire outdoor space.  We can include such elements as swimming pools, water features, fire features, pergola and other structures and outdoor furniture selection.


GardenWise Landscape Design-Build Process, planning
GardenWise will send a design contract for the production of the Landscape Master Plan. This master plan will incorporate your list of the desired landscape improvements within your budget. The design process is completed in two steps. 

1)  Preliminary design: We will present your preliminary design at the GardenWise studio. This will include itemized cost estimates, photographs and design development details. 

2) Final Landscape Master Plan: After you’ve had the opportunity to review the preliminary design at your leisure, you may suggest changes to the Master Plan. We will incorporate these into the Final Design.  

Our design fee typically starts at $2,000, and we’ll determine the fee at the site meeting in phase one*

Note: the design fee varies dependent upon the size and complexity of the project.
