I offer two services...

Co-Design helps you create a master plan for your landscape, in four, fun meetings. (NOT AVAILABLE THRU 2020)

A Consulting visit will focus on smaller areas and provide coaching or suggestions for your next steps in the landscape.

 

 
Co-design begins with a site visit

Co-Design Service

I can help you design the native landscape you've always wanted.

I'll come directly to your house to meet you, see the site, and work with you. Over a series of four meetings, we'll walk through the design process together. There will be homework to complete between meetings, and you will really feel you are getting involved in your own landscape design.

At the end of these four meetings, you will be ready to begin installing your landscape with confidence. You will have

  • a detailed, master plan drawing

  • a plant list and suggestions on where to find the plants you'll need

  • a phased plan of which parts to tackle in what order

  • planting, watering, and maintenance instructions as needed

You will also have a friend to share the enthusiasm as you move along in your project--which sometimes can make all the difference!

The cost for this service is $2,000. If you think this might be the right service for you, please contact me and let's talk about your landscape. 

Everyone loves our yard! We’ve done most of what we planned during our co-design with you and we love it!  We get complements from our family, friends, and neighbors, almost daily.  And, more importantly, several of them have told us we’ve inspired them to do something in their yards.

We are really enjoying it.  We’ve already had several fires in the fire pit, harvested some tomatoes from our deer-proof veggie garden and have received several hummingbird visits.  Ample parking for dinner parties and the mowing strip are kind of nice, too!

Consulting Visit

Small steps can begin a great journey!

If you could create a beautiful spot in your landscape—just one area to focus on—what would it be?

Would you like a friendly expert to help you figure out what to plant, and where?

Get design ideas, specific plant suggestions, and help with thorny problems in your landscape, all in one 60 to 90-minute visit. Get clear about your next steps so you can move forward with confidence!

What to expect with A CONSULTING VISIT

First, we'll have a short phone conversation that helps us both understand what your goals are for the visit.

Then I’ll come to your home for a visit lasting 60 to 90 minutes. During that time we’ll walk through your landscape and discuss areas you would like to change.

I will make suggestions on how to think about an area, and/or help you generate a list of plants appropriate for you next project area. You might take notes or make a sketch, while we talk, to capture the ideas.

Then we’ll talk about your next actions, so that when I leave, you can feel confident about your next several steps in the landscape.

The cost for this service is $300*

* Please note that this service is limited to Annapolis and nearby areas only (within a reasonable drive from Annapolis, MD).

“This was just what I needed! Can you come back in a few months?”

Several people have asked if they can keep repeating these consult visits until they have their entire landscape finished. The answer is YES!

I found my way to Chris through the Adkins Arboretum Landscape Design Center, and it’s been a joy to work with her!

She combines a deep knowledge of native plants and garden design principals with a genuine interest in helping me create a landscape that makes our acre feel like home.

Each Spring and Fall I rely on her advice and encouragement, and the visits with Chris are the highlights of my gardening year.
