Landscape Design

Beautiful, fresh and personalized spaces start with a well-planned and strong design.

Sargent’s professional landscape designers work to understand your personal aesthetic style (formal, informal, naturalistic or native) and incorporate materials (boulders, cut stone, brick, flagstone, clipped hedges, ornamental grasses, etc.) that compliment your style.

We also identify the types of spaces you desire, such as:

  • A secluded and intimate courtyard
  • An inviting entry with curb appeal
  • A large open space with sweeping views

We identify the opportunities and challenges your site has to offer as it relates to drainage, soils, sun and shade, circulation, views, seating areas and water features. As with any project, maintenance requirement and investment range are of the utmost importance. Should you choose to have us install your landscape, our designers take on the role as project manager.

Our designers work directly with the installation crew, foremen and any other sub-contractors to ensure that the ideas discussed in the meetings and sketches drawn up are carried through to realization.

Recognizing that excellent landscape design is critical for projects of all sizes, we offer a wide range of design services complimented by our comprehensive installation and maintenance services.

IN-STORE DESIGN CONSULTATION

An in-store consultation is the fastest, most cost-effective way to get advice from one of our landscape experts. It is a great service for small and mid-sized projects that don’t require full design services.

How it works – This free, 30-minute consultation pairs you with one of our Landscape Experts. Bring in pictures, measurements, and a basic sketch of the area to be worked on. During your 30 minutes, your landscape expert will offer advice on plants and material as it relates to your project. By the end of the consult, you’ll be equipped with all the knowledge you need to tackle your project with confidence.

There is no fee for the In-Store Design Consultation.

GARDEN COACHING

For mid-sized ‘Do-It-Yourself’ projects that require a professional eye – consider our Garden Coaching Service. It brings a knowledgeable Sargent’s Garden Coach to your yard. Whether you need a basic design sketch, recommendation on plants and materials, or advice on your current landscape, a Garden Coaching appointment is the way to go.

How it works – Garden Coaching appointments are up to 1.5 hours on-site. During that time, you and your coach will discuss your specific concerns and how to make the best use of your time.

This may include guidance on plants and plant care, garden maintenance, or a basic design/installation sketch for you to work from. Please note – while we work hard to be efficient with your time, it is not possible to create a sketch for your entire property within a single appointment. If your project covers several different areas, it is best to schedule multiple appointments.

The fee for a garden coaching appointment is $350.

FULL-SERVICE DESIGN

For large projects, we offer a full-service design option. After we gather some initial information, you will be assigned to a Landscape Designer and they will take you through the rest of the design-build process.

How it works – Design-Build is a comprehensive approach to the landscape installation and maintenance process. It streamlines the design and construction process, while maintaining direct communication between us, the designer and you, the client.

The first step in our process is to connect you with a landscape expert. Together you will explore your individual wants, wishes, and budget considerations. They will ask several questions to learn about the scope of your project. Based on your specific vision, you will be paired with a designer who will oversee the rest of the process.

Your designer will then take your vision and create a detailed plan. This plan will include suggested plants, materials, and maintenance, as well as provide an estimate to complete your project. If you want to proceed with the plan, you will sign a contract with Sargent’s and be placed on our schedule.

A Full-Service Design has a minimum fee of $500.
