Is Nature Designs right for your project?

Our ideal client:

  • Resides full or part-time within San Diego County.
  • Appreciates a turnkey company providing a full range of services: design, construction and maintenance.
  • Understands the value of a well-designed project and is willing to pay for those services; through Nature Designs or an independent designer. Typical design fees range from $2,000 – $12,000. Homeowners who already have a professionally designed landscape plan pay for bidding services (bidder’s deposit). This deposit includes verification of plan accuracy, a site visit, soil fertility analysis, detailed construction proposal, meetings, and value engineering options.
  • Realizes that open dialog about the landscape investment is critical to the success of the relationship, and the project. Typical construction budgets range from $50,000 – $500,000.
  • Requires weekly care to maintain their landscape investment after construction. Typical maintenance services range from $500 – $5,000 per month.
  • Has worked with other landscape companies and is interested in working with a more professional, well-managed company on their next project.
  • Values reputation and expertise more than low price.
