Our Process

All great gardens start with a great landscape design followed up with consistent, knowledgeable maintenance. And for Samantha’s Gardens, each one is tailored to every client and garden.

How to get started? 

Every new project begins with our online inquiry form. A designer will call you back to discuss your project, gather further details, and schedule an Initial Design Consultation. 

Garden and Landscape Design, Installation and Maintenance Process

Initial Consultation

During your Initial Consultation, we will walk your property, discuss your vision and needs, and decide if we are a good fit for each other. Then we’ll line up the next steps, whether that’s collaborating on design ideas and products we could use, or determining the best ways to maintain your existing landscape and gardens, within your budget.

Please note: Our Initial Consultation fee is $90, but you only pay that if you do not move forward with a project with us.

Proposal for Design Work

If you’re looking for garden and landscape design for your property, we will present you with a proposal to review and sign. At this time you pay your Design Deposit to get into our design queue. It can take anywhere from three weeks to three months to get through our queue, depending on the size of project, time of year, and our workload. 

Concepts & Revisions

We will come to your home and do a thorough site analysis. We walk through your property, take measurements, review your site plan, and revisit the design vision with you. Then our professional garden designers and landscape architects will draft an initial concept for your Design Plan. We’ll review it with you and make any changes that you request until we have a plan that matches your vision.

Installation Proposal

With the final design approved, we put together a proposal with the pricing information for your installation. At this time, you’ll pay your installation deposit to get on our installation schedule.

Final Design /Approval

Now that we agree on the overall Design Concept, we get to pick out all of the fun details, such as the trees, shrubs, and perennials, the lighting, types of stone, outdoor kitchens, and pergolas. We’ll review the final plan for your approval.

Making Magic Happen

With installation work rolling, you get to see your design begin to come to life. We get your plants ordered, line up all of the necessary sub-contractors, and introduce you to your construction team. We will review your property and the work that we will be doing.

Final bill

We will do a final walkthrough of your property with you to make sure everything is done to your satisfaction.

Annual Maintenance

At the end of the design and installation project, we begin valuable landscape maintenance to care for your new landscape. Our maintenance clients get added benefits such as additional warranties and ongoing enhancements.
