Landscape Design Information


When designing your landscape, we will need you to provide the following information at your initial consultation:


  1. Printed photos of the area(s) you plan to have landscaped.  Copy or photo paper is fine.
  1. Measurements of the area(s) you plant to have landscaped.  If you have a plot plan for your home, bring a copy of that as well.

NOTE – for photos and measurements, please do not bring in ipads, computers, cell phones or other devices.  We need hard copies on paper.

  1. Notes on sun exposure, drainage issues or anything that needs to be moved or removed or large plantings that may affect the design.
  1. Ideas or pictures of things you like or dislike (if you know).


The purpose of the initial consultation is to decide what you want to do and about how much it will cost.  There is no charge for this consultation.


At the end of the initial consultation, if you decide to have a design drawn, there is a $400 design fee (for front or back yard) that you will pay in the Garden Center.  NOTE – For larger lots (an acre or more) the design fee can be higher.


If you decide to have a design drawn, you will leave your pictures, measurements and notes with your designer.  We will contact you to set a second appointment when your design and quote are complete.  Time varies between initial and second appointments.


At the second meeting, your designer will go over your design and quote with you.  You can make any changes needed.  Once you are satisfied with your design and quote, you will pay ½ down to schedule the installation (if we are installing).  There is no rush, but pricing may change over time.  Quote pricing is valid for 7 days, but can be revisited at any point. All numbers are approximate until your FINAL invoice.


If you are installing the landscape yourself, it’s pay as you go.  PLEASE bring in a copy of your quote or have the quote number so that we can keep track of your purchases.


If Maas Nursery is installing your design: The design fee will be refunded at the end of your project on your FINAL invoice.


If you are installing your design BY OWNER: The design fee will be refunded to you once you have purchased all items from your quote from Maas Nursery.  Let us know when you have purchased EVERYTHING from your quote and completed your design and our business office will contact you about your design fee refund.
