How It Works

How it works at the initial complimentary site meeting, we’ll stroll through your property, engaging in detailed discussions about its current or prospective use, your vision, priorities, as well as our design and management fees. Together, we’ll craft a project budget and timeline tailored to your needs.

Our garden design packages in South Shore encompass a broad spectrum of options. For instance, a straightforward front foundation planting may range from approximately $300.00 to $500.00. Should you opt to incorporate additional features such as walkways, retaining walls, fencing, and lighting, the price naturally adjusts accordingly.

Most of our design packages’ pricing falls into the range of $500.00 to $1,200.00

Once contracted to move forward with the design will do a thorough site analysis.

The concept design phase serves as the blueprint for your project, setting the vision and tone. Drawing upon insights gathered during our initial discussions, along with meticulous studio sketches and site photo evaluations, we develop an initial concept plan. This plan employs diverse drawing types to vividly convey the design intent, providing you with a tangible glimpse into the future appearance and ambiance of your space. (See Example).

Once the ideas(s) are agreed upon we proceed with the full design project. Typically completed within 7 to 10 days, this phase culminates in the delivery of two professional CAD drawings. These drawings, meticulously crafted to scale, feature detailed construction notes, comprehensive labeling, and vibrant color photographs showcasing the materials and plantings envisioned for your South Shore, MA landscaping project.

We are knowledgeable as to how specific materials work together, what the best practices are, what the most up-to-date techniques and materials are. We stay current on proven techniques through continuing education. We also look for new and interesting materials to assist in making every living outdoor area an experience.

We have many ways of approaching a design.

“John was wonderful to work with. He was always accessible and ready with ingenious designs, keeping our budget in mind. He designed and installed a complete front, side and backyard landscape that will significantly increase the value of the property. I highly recommend him.”
Thom M. – Home Advisor Review
“John did an excellent job on our back yard redesign. We have a small JP garden which was overgrown and unpleasant to look at. He created an excellent design which blends a formal lawn area with less formal plantings. Design process was simple, the team he worked with were fast and cleaned up the site extremely well afterwards.”
