Whether it's a small corner of the yard you wish to make into a pollinator garden, a reduction in maintenance from an overzealous previous owner, an update of plants and hardscapes, brand new construction, or an extensive overhaul of the yard, the award-winning design and build team at Wasco Nursery is ready to reimagine your garden.
When we meet you at your home, be prepared as we'll ask a million questions. We'll find out your likes and dislikes, what your family enjoys about the yard (and what they don't!), what colors catch your eye, what plants you may have on your wishlist - even something as simple as "a tree that flowers". We will take detailed measurements, photos, and notes and talk with you in-depth about your goals for your outdoor space. Also, we work with YOUR budget - as no two landscapes are the same.
Once we have all the information, we'll start the design process. We'll provide you with a full scaled CAD drawing completely labeled and organized, a plant catalog with photos of each plant suggested, and estimates and other pertinent information to your project. We will send these materials to you in the mail but PDF versions will also be available upon request.
After you've approved your design and installation and sent in your deposit, then the tractor wheels are set in motion. We'll get you on our planting schedule and our amazing Wasco Nursery crews will arrive to install your project. Installation Day is as exciting as Christmas morning! When those Wasco trucks roll up loaded to the top with plants, the transformation begins!
A Consultation is time set up with one of our plant experts at your home to walk the yard. You can pick their brain about anything and everything in your yard - plant placement/replacement, bug or disease issues, maintenance questions, and more. There are no drawings or estimates provided with this service. (Consultation Fee - $100/hr.)
A Virtual Design is best for small areas or trouble spots. It's often easy for our team to make suggestions for plants right from photos and measurements you send us. We can quickly sketch or suggest ideas for your open spots and send them back to you via email so you can get planting. If you wish for our crews to plant, that can be arranged as well. There is no visit to your home with this service. (Virtual Design Fee - $50)
Partial and Master Plans are in-depth, comprehensive landscape designs that are best suited for larger areas such as the front of your house, backyard, around your patio, hardscaping, fencelines, borders, complete overhauls, new construction, etc. This design process is very detailed and is tailored to your yard. (Partial/Master Plans start at $200/$400 respectively)
Our designers are educated, highly skilled, creative designers that are in high demand. They have years of experience and it shows in their designs. The process of landscape design is not a quick one and it takes time to prepare all of the documents and ideas for your yard. The design fee covers the time involved to prepare and execute your landscape design and present it to you for implementation.
Please note that our Landscape Designers divide their time between working in the office and meeting with clients on site so their schedules vary day to day. EMAIL IS THE BEST WAY TO AVOID PHONE TAG AND RECEIVE THE QUICKEST RESPONSE. PLEASE SUBMIT ALL PROJECT RELATED QUESTIONS AND REVISION REQUESTS VIA EMAIL TO THE DESIGNER OVERSEEING YOUR PROJECT.
