Design, Build, Renovate
Our Design, Build & Renovate (DBR) service begins with an Assessment. This Assessment, including an on-site visit to the garden with your designer, photos and a ballpark estimate, is $100 plus tax. This consultation fee becomes a credit on your implementation project. We focus on low-maintenance, drought resistant choices, innovative colour-blocking techniques, excellent succession of bloom using long-blooming, repeat blooming flowering shrubs and perennials, evergreens, ornamental trees as well as beautifying your garden accents and improving your hardscaping. We do our best to reuse existing materials and recycle all plastic pots.
Usually within one more week, your designer creates a detailed plan, sketches including plant lists and photos. A deposit of an additional 25% is required once the Design Review is approved.
During implementation, we start on the day we tell you (weather permitting), tidy up everyday and keep you informed of our progress. Any changes that exceed the estimate require a documented change order. Final payment is required the day the project is completed and must be guaranteed with a credit card.
Plants are guaranteed until the end of the current growing season. If Kate’s Garden is responsible for Fine Gardening on at least a bi-weekly basis including Spring Clean Up and Fall Garden to Bed, plants are guaranteed for one year.
