- What will it cost to landscape my home?    A landscape designed and installed can cost anywhere from $5,000 to over $100,000.  A good rule of thumb is to plan to spend 5% to 10% of the value of your home.  

- How much value will landscaping add to my home?   A well designed landscape can add 10% to 20% to the value of your home. 

- When is the best time to plant?   Fall and spring are the ideal times to plant although, successful planting can be done all year round as long as the ground is not frozen. 

 

- How often and how much should I water?   For lawn areas, turf grass should be watered once to twice a week putting down an equivalent of 1" of rain fall. Newly planted trees and shrubs should likewise be watered once to twice a week, depending on site conditions. It is recommended to apply 10 gallons of water for every 1" of trunk diameter. The same applies for established trees and shrubs during drought conditions.
