I am only interested in lawn; can you give me a price for this?
Yes. Before we plant grass, we must first perform necessary soil preparation, which includes removing any buried rocks or debris, composting and fertilizing the soil, and leveling the area. Depending on what you need, we can either provide sods (also known as instant lawn) or plugs.

I’m afraid I don’t have enough money to finish the garden all at once; is it possible to do it in stages?
We are able to complete your garden in stages, yes. When we are finished with the design, it will serve as the “blueprint” for the subsequent stages of the project.

Are the plants available for individual purchase?
You are more than welcome to purchase the plants on your own, but for the majority of our projects, we use anywhere from three to nine different nurseries. This helps to ensure that the plants we use are of a high quality. When customers have purchased their own plants or materials for a project, there have been many instances in which the beginning of the project has been delayed, or the quality of the plants or materials has been lower than what we would consider to be satisfactory.
