Garden & Landscape Architectural Design
I have been a landscape architect for over twenty-five years. My background includes sixteen years as a designer and environmental planner with the national firm of EDAW (AECOM) in both their San Francisco, CA and Fort Collins, CO offices. Over the past ten years I have created my own business and transitioned to the design and implementation of beautiful residential gardens. Water conservation and responsible yet creative design are strong values for me.
My approach to design work is very thorough and includes careful listening to your vision and desires, understanding your unique property and its relationship to the architecture and surrounding environment, and working within your budget requirements.
The design process can be tailored to meet your needs. I offer conceptual design through preparation of construction documents, as needed. Selecting a landscape contractor, obtaining installation bids, and overseeing the creation of your garden are other important services available. It is through clear communication and on-site creative collaboration between the landscape architect, contractor(s), and client that manifests a truly beautiful garden.
I also do personal installation (design/build) for smaller gardens. My installation labor rate is $30.00 per hour. Additional charges will include use of my truck for material hauling needs at $35.00 per hour.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss your design needs. I would be happy to meet with you and/or provide references, and examples of my work.
Rate: $60.00 per hour for general consultation, design work, coordination with other consultants and contractors, and for overseeing on-site installation. A full design service fee estimate can be provided. Travel time beyond the Boulder-Longmont-Louisville, CO area will be billed at $20.00 per hour. Additional expenses may include FAX and drawing/plan copies.
