Whether you have a modest home or an estate, or are looking for a little upgrade or a complete landscaping remake, we’ve got the designers that will help you meet your objectives.

Here's how it works:

For a small fee you can have one of our creative and knowledgeable Landscape Designers visit your property to discuss objectives for the areas in need of new plantings or a makeover.  The designer will do a site analysis, take measurements and/or photos, and get your input and preferences.
After all pertinent information has been gathered, the designer generates a proposal. This includes a detailed drawing and plant list, which will enable easier interpretation of ideas and layout. Then comes the best part: “show-me” time. You will be invited back to MRT to walk together through the plant yard. You will be able to see the designer’s recommended plants firsthand, and give your feedback and suggestions. After finalizing your choices, you will get a written estimate, listing all plants, materials and labor costs.

* Fee is based on size of the job and is non-refundable

P.S. For you D.I.Y. people…if you just need a little guidance so you can do it yourself, we can draw your plan, give you the plant list, and you can purchase the plants and install them yourself. You just pay the design fee.
