Ashley’s Landscaping Inc. provides free estimates after we have had an opportunity to discuss your needs. Depending on the size of the project, we can often give you an estimate on site when we meet with you. However, if the project requires more detailed work, the estimate will be provided as soon as all information is gathered and decided upon.
The fist step in our design process is getting to know our customer and his or her wants/needs. We typically like to meet at the sight to go over options, look at structural or drainage requirements, take measurements, and discuss an overal personalized plan. We want the design to fit your taste in appeal while offering our professional opinion.
Elements in the design may include some of the following choices:
- Trees, Shrubs, Perennials, or Flowers
- Seeded Grass or Sod
- Various types of Rock or Boulders
- Various forms of Edging including Plastic, Paver, or Boulder
- Free Standing Walls or Columns
- Retaining Walls
- Patios or Walkways
- Ponds or Water Features
- Fire Pits
- Landscape Lighting
- Seasonal Decorations or Flower Pots
The exciting but somewhat daunting options in landscape design are nearly endless. We will help you pick out the perfect choices that’s right for you and your budget.
With that in mind we ask that you prepare a price range for your landscape. Discuss your budget needs with Andrew or Luther while they are at the site. We have developed a Landscape Planning Guide for this purpose. You can either email us a copy before the meeting or have it ready in hand at the time of meeting.
Before we actually draw up your design, we require a $200 deposit for small designs and $300 deposit for large designs. Once the plans are accepted by you, we will refund half of the deposit or put it toward your down payment. Customers have up to 1 year to accept a proposed design before the deposit is forfeited. If you choose to cancel the design in total, the deposit is also forfeited.
The final steps of our landscape design is making sure we have met all of your satisfactions. We will send you the design for you to look over and make any adjustments or changes. Once you approve the design, the last step is to send a down payment of 1/3 the total price. Upon receiving that check we will schedule a date to begin your project. The down payment will be held until the project start date.
