Conceptual Drawing: A conceptual drawing locates areas to be developed and problems to be solved and indicates patterns of movement through the space. We develop drawings indicating ways to configure the space, any needed new paving or structures, such as decks, arbors, or pergolas, along with the general shapes, textures, colors, and sizes of plants that will enhance your site.

At a second meeting, we will present you with two or more alternatives for your garden. Usually, the design retainer covers expenses up to this point. Billing now proceeds at the hourly rate of $100. At this meeting, we will determine which direction to pursue, and how you would like the drawing modified. We will also talk about specific plants you would like included in your garden. more
