When you call Zergott Landscaping about getting an estimate for a new landscape we send one of our landscapers out to meet with you. We discuss your ideas and dreams for your yard, making a list of your “someday” plans as well as your immediate needs. Then we’ll ask what plants you like or dislike, the colors you would like in your yard and match those with the current growing conditions in your yard—sun, shade, wind, soil conditions, and so forth.
After your appointment the landscaper will give his notes to our trained landscape designers. If necessary they will come to your home to take appropriate measurements and see the site. They then begin a design drawing for your property. Designs can be as simple as a plant placement sketch or a full-blown, detailed rendering to scale of everything you hope for. If you plan to stay in your home for a long time they can implement this plan in stages to accommodate your budget and still give you the yard of your dreams. Depending on the size of your project, this design phase of your landscape can take up to 2 weeks from the time of your initial appointment. There is a fee for the design, again depending on its complexity. Finally, if you would like a design but plan to do the plant installation yourself, we will be happy to work with you and create one for you at a modest cost.
