Landscape Services


Formal Landscape Design Service

This service is best suited for customers who wish to do substantial landscaping to one or more areas or their entire property. The process begins when you schedule an at home consultation for an at home visit with one of our landscape designers. Our designer will listen to your ideas, discuss your objectives, evaluate the site conditions and provide suggestions on how to meet your vision. The designer will take measurements and photos for the purpose of preparing a design. Once the design and proposal are complete and suit your wishes and budget, we will schedule the installation. Typically, our designer will oversee the installation and be your point of contact for any future needs. Design fees range from $50 to $500 depending on the scope of your project. If you use one of our landscape crews for installation, the design fee is credited. Minimum of $2500 project budget required.
By appointment only.

*Design fees are credited back to your account if Platt Hill Nursery completes the installation of your landscape.
