Landscaping Process

Step One:

Your first step to a beautiful landscape is contacting Metzger Landscaping & Design. We will schedule an appointment to meet with you and evaluate your property. If you have already established a budget for the project prior to the initial meeting we encourage you to express this openly with our designer.

Step Two:

Our landscape designer will meet with you at the proposed project site. There is a $25 consultation fee for the first meeting. Pictures and measurements will be taken, as well as additional information helpful to the design process. We will schedule a second meeting at this time.

Step Three:

During the second meeting, the landscape designer will present the landscape plan and quote to the client. Any necessary changes and/or additions can be made at this time. Upon accepting the landscape plan and quote, both the landscape designer and client will sign a contract. It is at this time that one-half down payment will be collected to begin the project. We will schedule an approximate time for the installation phase to begin.

Step Four:

Metzger Landscaping & Design takes care of all the ordinances and regulations needed for implementation of the proposed landscaping. We contact all utility companies to insure our safety as well as our clients’. Next, the installation of the landscaping begins. The jobsite is left neat and clean at the end of each workday, until the project is completed.Metzger Landscaping 012

Design Fees:

Do-it-yourself clients may choose to purchase a landscape design for their project. Our landscape design fee starts at $250, depending upon the project size. A typical foundation planting plan around a house is a flat fee of $250, with additional areas costing $50 per area. Design fees are credited to the client’s account if our firm is hired to install the landscape and may be applied toward the cost of their project. Our landscape designer can give you an estimate for the design fee after accessing the property.

In committing your project to Metzger Landscaping & Design, you will need to:
  • Activate your bid with a signed contract and 50% deposit (Landscape Installation contracts only). Remaining balance will be invoiced upon completion of installation.
