Lisa’s List of Services
Educational Landscape Consultations/Landscape Coaching: Here is an area of some confusion and I want to be very clear..EVERYONE WHO OWNS A HOME SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE! An educational consultation with a trained, educated professional is an opportunity for you to discuss landscape problems, organic gardening, tree, shrub and plant care. Vegetable gardening, fruit tree care and selection, soil preparation, proper trimming techniques, necessary tools and so much More will be covered during a consult or garden coach session. It can also de used for a design session (typically two hours0 where the client and I draw out a quick sketch for a small space, fill in beds or give a list of plants to consider for your overall space. This is an excellent tool for the do-it-yourselfer or anyone wanting to bid out the work to be done. I am not there to sell you my services, I am there to train you to be a better steward of your land, which in turns makes you a smarter consumer and that saves you money. Design influenced education with a low water, low maintenance approach. An average consultation cost (depending on your location) is $100.00 to $150.00 per hour (most are done in an hour) and this one hour consult can save you thousands in mistakes.

I provide consultation to the greater Austin area including Onion Creek, Buda, San Marcos, Wimberly, Bastrop, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Pflugerville and Round Rock. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
Landscape Design: I am a Certified landscape designer, Master Gardener, artist. However, my best experience has been in the field. While there is absolutely a significant difference between someone who is trained in design and someone who simply knows about plants, I believe my greatest strength is my experience in the art world and my vast knowledge of plants in their habitat. You cannot design successfully if you do not know the growth habits of each plant you are using and that only comes from being a gardener. I have been a professional Personal Gardener as well as gardening in my own space for over 30 years in Central Texas and that experience has taught me that just because a plant looks good on paper does not mean it looks good 5 years from now in your garden. Spacial challenges, long-term light conditions, soil and water conditions all have to be considered as well as the care the owner wants to put into a bed. One of the most important qualities of a designer is to be a good listener, it is also important to be honest with the client to manage their expectations, and sometimes what they believe they want may not be what they need. If you are not successful in your space I have not done my job correctly. I believe it is important to give you a design that suits your lifestyle and the time you have to manage it. Your garden should work for you, not the other way around. With your design you get a scaled drawing, an original and follow-up consultation, a full bid for installation and instruction for the do-it-yourselfer. Typical cost of a design for an “average” yard or space is between $500-$1500. I provide designs to the greater Austin area including Onion Creek, Buda, San Marcos, Wimberly, Bastrop, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Pflugerville and Round Rock. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
