Lisa’s Landscape Design and Consultation Service
First of all, thank you to those of you who have followed and supported me through the years. It is a huge honor to share my passion with all of you.
I am very excited to announce that LL&D will be changing gears to a full-time design, consulting and home owner education firm. I have been installing landscapes from $5000 to $50,000+ for the last 15 years in Austin and I have been a professional and personal gardener for over 20 years. The flora of central Texas is stunning and I have made it my mission to know the best plants and trees that are successful in nearly any space. My specialty is full sun to full shade deer resistant, low water gardens. If you are in the market for a large or small landscape project, wouldn’t I be of great use to you BEFORE you hire another professional? Or worse, someone who calls themselves a landscaper but doesn’t really know what they are doing, but you don’t know the difference? I can save you thousands on costly mistakes and up sells by telling you how things should really be done, what materials you could use based on my years of design experience. I can help you choose the right plants for the job; not the plants or stone contractors make the most mark up on. My consult fee is from $225 per hour ONLINE, or $295 in person, to a limited sphere through Covid.
Take what I have learned from working with sub contractors over the last 18 years and use that information to be an educated consumer when shopping for the right crew, or DIY. Here are some examples of my designs that have been completed.
If you have recently purchased a new home and need to know what plants and trees you have and how to care for them, or you would like to begin a garden of your own and need trimming instruction, soil, sod, trees, plant and shrub selection or design instruction and organic gardening techniques, a Garden Coach or Educational Consultant is an excellent tool for the do it yourselfers. I LOVE Educational Consultations because it is such a gift to be able to teach people to live a symbiotic life with their own space while creating an extended living area where everyone in the home gets what they need. We can use the consultation to fill in empty spaces, draw a quick sketch for new beds or improve your overall landscape. Should we decide that what you really need is a design (some projects are too big or complex for one hour) The cost of the consult goes towards a design. An average design ranges from $750-1500.
Design planning is a personal experience. You need to know that the person who is designing your space understands your needs. I provide a design anyone could follow so they are well suited for the do-it-yourselfer over the course of several years, or to those who plan to bid the work out. With a well thought out design you can take multiple bids on the same product instead of confusing “free” Consultations where each is selling the items they make the most money from. How do I know this? 13 years of Subcontractors… I have done it all from brick laying, to fire pits, patio, water features, organic gardening, plant and tree installation, and trimming, to full maintenance on estates in the Austin area. I want to share those years of experience with you so we can create the space that suits you best while staying on budget and addressing the needs of your specific property. This is a large 1 acre design I finished recently. Each design is hand drawn, each plant is listed and planting instruction, timing and materials are discussed at the final meeting.
I also provide a plant layout service. If you have an educational consultation or design and have your beds prepared, I can have your plants delivered and lay them out on site. This is a great way to be sure the best plants are selected and the layout is perfectly spaced for optimal success. Once I provide you with a consult or design you have access to me by phone, text or email indefinitely to ask follow-up questions about maintenance and general care to be sure you have optimal success.
So let me help you plan the space of your dreams; simplify your life by reducing water need, maintenance and ensure that the money you spend going forward is well spent. I provide online consults and design work for the greater Austin area including San Marcos, Wimberly, Buda, Kyle, Leander, Round Rock, Pflugerville and Cedar Park, Bastrop, or anyone’s is Hardiness Zone 8 a/b. I also provide in-person consultation for a limited area. Please call me at 512-733-7777, or better yet, email me details of your project to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can provide more detail and availability. I have appointments available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
I look forward to creating with you,
Lisa’s Landscape & Design
