Land Use Plan
Preliminary Meeting
  • General property evaluation
  • Discuss specific improvements and repairs
  • Swimming pool placement

This is a 2 to 3 hour consultation with Mike to assess your property, its problems and possible solutions.

This evaluation explores topics such as:
  • You need an addition to your home. How can it work best with your landscape?
  • You need your property changed to better reflect your lifestyle. What could be done and what would be a realistic budget for upgrading it?
  • You are considering retiring in your home rather than moving. Can you improve your property or should you move?
  • You are considering a swimming pool. Where should it be placed?
  • Your deck, patio or front walkway needs repair. Or, should they be replaced?
  • Your driveway is awkward or dangerous. Can it be improved?

Open Design Meeting $650
  • Comprehensive design collaboration for beautiful plantings, privacy, relaxation, recreation and entertaining
  • Best option for projects that will integrate creative solutions to many problems
  • Low maintenance, low environmental impact solutions
  • Construction in phases

Looking for spectacular landscape design? This is the program that's best for you.

We will formulate a Plan of Action, a detailed and itemized description of your Schematic Design and how to proceed with the construction in efficient phases.

This is 3 to 4 hours of focused and creative teamwork. Topics covered will include:
  • Design styles
  • Space utilization and the functionality of your property
  • Plantings - trees, shrubs, flowers, ornamental grasses and lawns
  • Hardscape options - driveway, stonework, decks, patios, walls, spa and swimming pool
  • Relative budget for various approaches

Schematic Designs are typically priced from $3500 to $8500.

Design Plan of Action $650

  • Required for the Schematic Design of larger projects
  • The Land Use Plan proposal is developed in four steps:
  1. Preliminary meeting
  2. Research
  3. Fact-based discussion
  4. Land Use Plan design proposal
This process addresses property access/egress, parking, privacy, entertaining spaces, lawns, septic systems, grading, and/or new foundation placement.

We will research wetlands, setbacks, easements, and permitting issues for you, then engage an architect, builder, surveyor or other engineer as needed (priced separately).

This facilitates a fact-based discussion on the best design possibilities for your property.

The Land Use Plan will include a Design Plan of Action, a proposal for a Schematic Landscape Design (see Option 2) and all the information and documents developed during this process. Larger Schematic Designs are typically priced from $6500.

Land Use Plan Preliminary Meeting $650
