Initial Design Consultations are $200.

From food production to ecological health, we look at the dynamic factors of your situation in order to discover the path that works for both you and your place.

I walk the property with you to discuss your goals, then make focused recommendations on next steps and solutions to your unique issues. These last 1.5 hour and result in write up of plants, specifics resources, as well as areas to develop together. You will get a drone base map with areas outlined for development with an estimate of cost for further development.

My goal is to provide direct value and actionable possibilities from this visit. An initial design consult is a chance to get to know you and your initial vision, concerns for the site, and experience level. I find most people get enough of a task list from an initial consult to keep them busy for a year.

Implementation – Simple and Complex

We are a full service design and build operation. If you want us to implement and design, then the cost for initial design is inherently cheaper as much of it will be adapted during the build, also we will not have to spend as much time articulating choices to a builder, thus saving time and money.

Whole Site Designs vary in price, but often begin at $1,200, upwards of $8,000.
