Winter Design Projects
Designing a landscape is a complicated endeavor, but you can bring peace of mind to an otherwise overwhelming process by hiring a professional. When you work with a company like Nurney Landscape & Design, you get over 35 years of experience to bring your vision to life. Achieving the landscape of your dreams starts with a good design. But just simply having a good landscape design isn’t enough to actually bring it to fruition. Having an understanding of the installation process is key and knowing what is possible helps you avoid costly pitfalls. This is where the expertise and award-winning design capabilities of Nurney Landscape & Design will shine through.
Our Lead Designer
Jay Nurney is the lead designer and owner of Nurney Landscape & Design. Jay started Nurney Landscape & Design in March of 1987 with the idea that it would help pay his way through college. What started as a summer job turned into a thriving local business that has served the local community and employed hundreds of people over the past three and half decades. Jay has the ability to look at a landscape and visualize the options with the elements you have in mind. Many landscape companies are recognizable with a specific look/feel, by working with Nurney Landscape & Design, we can ensure that you will have a fully customized and unique aesthetic for your outdoor space!
Know Your Budget
Knowing your budget is crucial for creating a landscape design. When starting the design process, we require a design fee of $500. This includes the creation of a physical design which is essential for an accurate proposal. During these meetings, you will work alongside Jay to create a blueprint for the project that will serve as a foundation for the work to be done.
During the first meeting, we will discuss your vision. You will have the opportunity to describe any details you want in the final design as well as anything you dislike. This includes colors, specific plants, materials, and anything else that comes to mind. Let us know if your property is heavily populated with deer, has standing water, or has any issues with basement flooding.
During the second meeting, we will present you with a preliminary design for review and changes. In this meeting, you will want to make any and all changes that you want to see in the final design.
In our third and final meeting, we will bring the final design and proposal for your review. If there are any changes to the final design at this time, there will be an additional $75 fee for each design session added.
Get Started This Winter
While there is no right or wrong time to start your landscape design, this slower time of year can be a great time to get ahead. All of those great ideas, like installing a new patio or garden beds, are more or less fresh on your mind. Supply chain issues have caused significant delays in landscaping materials, so giving plenty of buffer time before next summer is a good idea for minimizing unwanted waits. Also, the warmer weather has allowed us to work well into winter which means your property could be ready right when spring hits!
