Landscape Design

The outdoor space of your home deserves as much consideration as the indoor does. The Ken Helmlinger Company is committed to creating distinctive and functional designs. A professionally designed landscape plan is always a good investment, and it will save you money in the long-term. A well-designed outdoor area can add curb appeal and significant value to your home, as well as many hours of family enjoyment and entertainment possibilities. Having a thought out landscape plan to refer to will eliminate double efforts, simplify maintenance work and ensure the success of your landscape.

Determining exactly what your needs and desires are is very important to us. We will work hard to fulfill your landscaping dreams, whether you plan on staying at your home for many years or not. We will be happy to design a landscape plan to fit your own personal lifestyle, and that will maximize your investment when it is time to sell your property.

When you call us to request our services, we will schedule an initial consultation at your property. This first consultation will include an interview to determine your needs and character of your home. The fee charged for a one-hour design consultation is $65.00.

During the first consultation, the designer will ask many questions in order to establish the level of detail of the landscape plan. Some factors in determining the complexity and cost of a design are:

  • overall size and scope of the project
  • the approximate budget for the project
  • location and special site access and requirements
  • preferred materials and plant selection
  • how the work is to be installed (in phases or all at once)

A design fee of $65.00 per hour will be charged for any design work provided. In most cases, the design fee will be determined during this first consultation and can be anywhere from three to fifteen hours of design time, depending on the size of the design. Upon your authorization to proceed with the design, we will complete a site inventory and measurements, and start preparing a drawing for your property. Additional meetings and drawing revisions will be required for complex designs.

When the final drawing is presented, we will also provide a proposal to perform the work, in its entirety or in phases, as required by you. This proposal will include a list of materials, equipment, labor to perform the work and the total cost of the job. Payment options for the project installation will be discussed at that time. We will refund the cost of the design fee when the proposal is accepted and signed, and the amount will be refunded when the work is completed and billed. Otherwise, the bill for the design services will be mailed to you after the final plan is presented.

Our designers have the capability to draw computer plans and beautiful hand drawn plans. Upon request, your master plan can be color rendered and framed as well. This is a great gift idea for a newlywed couple or a family member who needs help with their outdoor space
