On-Site Consulting, Central Texas
We’ll start with an initial meeting to detail your needs and identify how the landscape can support the well-being of you and your family. Two options are available:
Design for the entire home landscape, great for new homeowners
Design for a portion of the property, great for back or side yards
Elderyarding® - Design specific to aging-in-place
A proposal document describes the scope of work and a full estimate for Second Summer®’s landscape architecture services. This is a flat fee for the specific services provided.
With the signed contract, Second Summer® will conduct a site analysis, including review of existing plants and soils, measurements and photos.
We’ll continue with a conceptual plan and sketches to confirm the proposed landscape fits your dreams.
When the plan is finalized, you’ll have a blueprint and plant list laying out the entire project. You are ready to install it yourself or have it installed by a landscape contractor. Second Summer® can recommend great quality contractors.
