If you are interested in speaking with one of our landscape architects in San Diego, reach out to us today.

Step 1

One-Hour On-Site Consultation

Start by meeting us in person to go over design ideas, measure dimensions, and conduct a site analysis for your outdoor living space design. Together we’ll observe and consider all aspects of the space — e.g., existing conditions, architectural style, views, access, demolition, existing utilities, and topography.

Then, we’ll refine the design cost and provide an exact figure based on evaluation and design considerations.

Cost: Free

Step 2

Landscape Design Concept Plan

After the consultation, our designers take the compiled information from the site analysis and design considerations to generate a concept plan and/or 3D rendering.

A concept plan or landscape plan is a visual representation of the end goal of the yard design project, expanding on the initial design considerations. The plan will call out key elements or attributes in the design and includes a scaled design with callouts, revisions to the plans or adjustments to scope.

Starting at: $1,000

Step 3

HOA/Construction Plan

Our HOA plan includes:

  • Scaled design with callouts, measurements, and dimensions
  • Revisions to the plan, like rounding corners or slight adjustments to the scope

Starting at: $1,000

Hands down best customer service and craftsmanship, outstanding finished will not be disappointed!

Step 4

3D Renderings

Sometimes a concept plan is not enough to grasp the ideas outlined within, which is where a 3D package is the perfect choice. Our 3D renderings include:

  • Viewpoints
  • Revisions to the plan, like rounding corners or slight adjustments to the scope

With our 3D+ plan you can experience night scenes, flythrough videos and more.

Starting at: $1,000

Step 5

Custom Landscape Design Packages

We offer custom design packages where exact quotes will be based on the site evaluation and your specific project needs. Custom design packages are often used for outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, pergolas and water features but can be used for any outdoor living project.

Cost: Varies by project


Basic revisions are included within each package, which would entail “small revisions” to the plans like rounding corners in the lawn design or small adjustments to the scope of the project.

Additional revisions will be charged at an hourly rate of $100/hour.

Cost: $100/hour
