Landscape Consulting

Need ideas and inspiration for curb appeal or a backyard make-over?

Whether you are looking to renovate the whole yard, just accenting what you already have or composing something new,  we  will help you design an outdoor living space that will be low maintenance, sustainable, comfortable for your family and friends and within your budget.

During the consultation visit, we walk through your property and discuss your specific issues,  preferences and vision for the space.  We offer design ideas including hard-scape (any garden feature that is not a plant), plant materials for the site (right plant for right place) , and other tips and recommendations.

Within two to three hours, we can usually arrive at suggestions that you can begin to implement or determine if further sketches or scaled drawings will be needed for the development of your project. If you decide you want a full design, the consulting fee will be credited to the design fee.

We offer do-it-yourselfers:

  • Hard-scape Recommendations
  • Plant Recommendations and placement
  • Plant Procurement
  • Design Ideas



If you purchased a home with ornamental trees, shrubs and perennials, we can help identify and how to take care of them.

For those having recently moved to the Portland Metro area and need an overview of our climate and plants, we can help orient the home owner to our area, connect them to nurseries, specialists, and stores.

Helena, we were awarded with the annual Golden Rake Award by the City of Estacada. Our front entry was found admiration by the city council! Neighbors were amazed by the change that took place in one summer season. None of this would have happened without your encouragement and the plan you laid out for us. Thank you!
