Landscape Design Process

A landscaping project doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Whether you’re renovating an existing landscape or you have a new construction project, this overview will help you know what to expect. The process of landscaping your home or commercial property can be broken down into three phases: the consultation, the design phase, and the installation.


The consultation phase begins with a site visit for our free, one-hour design consultation. During this phase, you will work closely with a landscape designer who specializes in residential and commercial landscape design. Together you will address any design considerations such as the desired purpose for your yard, what features you would like to be included, and which landscaping style you would like to see.


The design phase consists of research, idea gathering, and planning. Depending on your needs, either 2-D plans or a 3-D video render will be created. The design phase ends with you receiving a completed plan that proposes location and materials for hardscapes, outdoor living features, plants, palms and trees, lighting, as well as specifications and photos of materials.


The installation phase consists of the actual building process that brings your design plans to life. Your landscape will be transformed into a space that’s ready for you to enjoy with friends and family.

How Much Does the Landscape Design Cost?

Our experts will collect all of your property’s specific measurements and craft a custom design that will serve as a road map for your project. There’s no copy-and-paste or one-size-fits-all approach here. Your property is unique, so shouldn’t your landscape design be, too?

This process takes several hours to make sure every aspect is perfect, from the patio shape and size to the correct plant selection. Plant and tree sizes, sun exposure, growth rate and hardiness ranges all need to be factored for the perfect design.

The design cost depends on factors such as the size of the project. Do you want a small patio or driveway? Is your property in need of a complete landscape renovation with an outdoor kitchen, patio, water feature, fireplace, and plantings?

The larger and more detailed the project, the more time it will take to design it, which ultimately affects the final cost. If you want to incorporate changes after the landscape design has been approved, that increases the cost, as well.

We have professional, in-house landscape designers who have years of experience. We’ll always work to help you create a design that fits within your budget!

  • Our professional 2-D landscape design services start at $250.
  • For clients who have a hard time visualizing the completed project, Tropical Gardens Landscape offers 3-D renderings with an animated video walkthrough of your completed project. These 3-D landscape design services start at $1,200.

Here are some of the things that your design payment will get you:

  • 2-D or 3-D landscape design of your project
  • Material and plant list
  • Ability to request revisions and receive an updated design
  • Open lines of communication for any questions you have about your project
  • Expert landscape designer input and advice

During your initial consultation with our design experts, your wish list, timeline, budget, and the scope of the project will be discussed.

Once you are happy with the design, a contract will be submitted along with the payment structure required to get started on the project. That’s it! Tropical Gardens Landscape will take it from there!
