Amity Creek Landscaping will help you plan and complete any landscape project from a colorful shade tree you've always wanted, to a large new patio with a walkway lined with flowering perennial gardens. We have the knowledge, tools, and skill get it done.

Here is a general idea of how our process normally works. Feel free to Contact us with any questions, or to get your project started.

Landscape consultation

A landscaping professional meets with the customer on site to discuss ideas and options for improving the landscaping, solving a problem, or adding another landscape feature. There is no charge for this initial consultation.

Landscaping estimate

After the consultation the customer can request a simple diagram and proposal for the landscaping work that was discussed.

Landscape design

The customer can request a detailed landscape plan accompanied by a written proposal for the work with estimated costs. The charge for landscape design is $75/hour and depending on the size of the project often takes 3-6 hours.

Contract and scheduling:

Typically we complete the landscaping project for a fixed proposed cost. Occasionally we work on a time and materials basis. We do require a signed contract and a deposit of 35% of the proposed cost. Changes are common and are discussed and approved by the customer before completion. We schedule work according to customer needs and complete it in as timely a manner as possible.

Installation:

This is when the actual work is done. Depending on the project it may take a few hours or a few weeks to complete the work. Whatever it is we have the experience and tools to do it properly.

Usually the work follows a familiar pattern. First, we lay out the work area and then we remove old plants, excavate poor soil, and rough grade for proper drainage. Next, either good soil is brought in for planting and turf areas, or gravel and stone is placed as a base for walls, patios, and walks. Then we plant the trees, shrubs, and perennials, or construct the wall, install the pavers, or set the stone in place. Finally the newly landscaped areas are finished with mulch and sod and we clean up and you enjoy the completed project.
