Frequently Asked Questions
Who is our ideal client?
Our ideal client values a comprehensive and thoughtful approach to their project. If you're looking to renovate your backyard, we're at our best when we can view the entire space, even parts we may not directly work on. This allows us to craft a solution tailored to your lifestyle, ensuring the features we suggest resonate with your desires and can be cherished for years to come. Our conversations typically revolve around the value a feature brings to your experience—whether it enhances moments for you, your family, and friends—rather than merely its cost. While budget considerations are essential, we emphasize creating lasting value over just picking the least expensive option.
Who might not resonate with our approach?
If you're solely looking for quick fixes or minor touch-ups, we may not be the best fit. While we respect budgetary constraints and believe in compromise, we don't specialize in surface-level repairs. We thrive on reimagining spaces from the ground up, addressing core issues and building anew. Our goal is to create a space you're drawn to, not just a place to pass through. When decisions are solely driven by cost, the outcome can often miss the mark in terms of satisfying needs and desires. We approach every project as if it's our own space, aiming for a result that both we and you would treasure.
What determines the cost of landscaping?
The cost of landscaping is influenced by several key factors:
Project Size: Naturally, larger spaces tend to have higher costs. The more area we have to work on and the bigger the features, the higher the project price will be.
Logistics: The location and accessibility of the property play a significant role. For instance, a property with limited access, like one in a tight subdivision, may increase costs due to the challenges of moving materials by hand or using specific equipment. In contrast, properties with open access, like a farm, can utilize larger machinery, which speeds up the work and can reduce labor costs.
Material Selection: The choice of materials can drastically affect the project's price. Taking driveways as an example:
- An asphalt driveway might cost around $5,000.
- A poured concrete driveway could be in the range of $8,000 to $12,000.
- A driveway made of concrete pavers might be priced between $20,000 to $30,000.
Features and Add-ons: The "extras" or the unique features you choose will also influence the price. A basic fire pit made from a steel frame will differ in cost from a luxurious stone fire pit made from precast walls or natural stone.
In essence, the cost will vary depending on the size, logistics, materials, and specific features you opt for in your landscaping project.
How much does a typical project cost?
The cost of a typical landscaping project varies based on the scope and features. Here's a breakdown:
Front Yard Projects: These can range from:
- $10,000 for basic enhancements like updating the walkway, front steps, porch, and adding some garden elements.
- $50,000 for comprehensive updates, including driveways, entrances, gardens, lighting, and other premium features.
Backyard Projects: The cost can be between:
- $25,000 for foundational features like patios, gardens, and lighting.
- $100,000 when including additions like sheds, cabanas, fire pits, and water features. Do note if you're considering a pool, that can add significantly to the cost. A fibreglass pool, for instance, can contribute an additional up to $100,000.
Entire Property Renovations: Merging both front and backyard projects, the cost here can be:
- Starting from $100,000 for holistic renovations.
- Reaching up to $500,000 for larger estates with extensive, feature-rich landscapes.
Remember that these are typical ranges, and your actual cost will depend on specific choices and requirements.
How long does a project typically take?
The duration of a project can range from as short as one or two days to as long as two months. This timeframe depends on the project's scope, our level of preparedness, and whether specialty trades, such as electricians or gas technicians, are involved.
When can my project be scheduled?
The timeline for scheduling your project largely depends on various preparatory steps. Typically, we only schedule a project once:
- We've completed the pre-construction planning.
- All necessary materials have been received and stored at our facility.
- Required permits have been approved and obtained.
- Specialty trades like electricians and gas technicians are aligned and ready.
For smaller projects, scheduling can be as quick as within a week. However, for more intricate projects, especially those involving multiple features or contractors, the process can extend from three to six months before a start date is fixed. Remember, the more complex the project, the longer the pre-construction phase, which in turn affects the official scheduling.
