LANDSCAPE DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Our design process begins with an onsite consultation, a brief meeting where we can get an idea of what you are looking for. From there we will decide whether a formal landscape design is necessary. Generally a scaled drawing is not necessary and a basic sketch or verbal communication can get the ideas across unless you have no idea where you want us to start. If you have trouble visualizing the plan then a design may be something you wish to invest in. A landscaping design can cost from $400 and up depending on how complex the landscape is and in order to provide a useful quote it helps if you are able to give us a budget. Once we have a general idea of what you are looking for we will present a detailed hand drawn design, then make any revisions required until you are satisfied. With several years of experience we are sure we can come up with something you will love.
There are several low maintenance landscape designs which will look great without the stress and upkeep for those who lead a busy lifestyle and can't spend a lot of time in the garden. English gardens look amazing but usually require more upkeep, great if you enjoy spending your weekends out in your backyard. Japanese gardens are another popular option which can be beautiful and offer you a tranquil place to relax in private. Currently a lower maintenance clean rock/gravel look has been a very popular request in Nanaimo.
New landscaping can be a great investment, adding value to your property for rentals or future sale. Contact us for a free consultation today and we can help you choose the perfect style of landscape for you and your family.

Payment Schedule and Deposits
We know finding a reliable landscaping company in Nanaimo can be difficult, especially when the weather starts to get nice. We are usually booked a few weeks in advance and have to occasionally turn away projects if our schedule doesn't fit with the potential clients. For this reason, projects over $1000 we require a minimum of $250 non-refundable deposit to be placed on the schedule. This is to cover some of the cost from missed opportunities if somebody cancels last minute leaving us and our employees with an empty spot in the schedule. If you need to cancel for reasons out of your control this fee can be waved. We also require a 50% deposit upon the start of your landscaping job. For larger projects of $25,000 or more, progress payments of 25% or 33% can be arranged. All jobs are added to the schedule in the order of when the deposit is received.
