What to Expect At Your Next Appointment

Congratulations on scheduling your design consultation with Kalamazoo Garden Design, the best landscape design service in Kalamazoo!
Below is some information that you may find helpful in maximizing the design consultation experience.


Please call or email Kalamazoo Garden Design to schedule an appointment.

We make every effort to be punctual for our appointments. However, please allow a 15 minute window, as the previous client may have run late or there may be traffic problems. We will call your home or cell number if we are going to be more then 15 minutes late.

If something comes up and you cannot make your consultation appointment, please call our office as soon as possible at 269-548-5706.

What We Need You To Do:

The client should expect to spend 1 to 2 hours of their time with the landscape designer to discuss the plan for their yard. The consultation will be outside, so please dress appropriately for the weather and to walk around the garden.


Design Consultation: Will be quoted on site. $50 estimate fee and a minimum landscape design fee of $350. An extra travel charge will apply for sites more than 20 miles away from Kalamazoo. This design fee can be used as a credit for installation work.

On the average job, the landscape design phase of the consultation will have the landscape designer on your property for three to four hours. Larger projects can take much longer.

What Does the Client Receive?

All of this information will be taken back to the office where the proposal will be prepared. The client will be contacted (usually within two weeks) to set-up an appointment to present the proposal at the client’s home. The proposal package will include an landscape architectural plan view of the area to be addressed and virtual images of completed project. See the Project Sample page for examples of landscape design plans.
