OFF OR ON-SITE CONSULTATIONS:
Scheduled by appointment with Mary Ann FitzGerald
This service has proven very successful for the homeowner, commercial or public landowner who wants to improve upon their outdoor space but does not need a detailed set of plans. My 30+ years of experience has equipped me with a vast understanding of the Landscape Design and Horticultural process.
If meeting at my Design Studio (off-site), you will need to bring
measurements and photos of your area of concern. After review and discussion, you will walk away with
a rough layout sketch of your area, indicating plant material and any construction ideas, patios & walkways, etc.
The benefit of meeting on your location (on-site) is to personally experience your space and the environmental context of the area of interest. In this format you will take notes as we discuss your challenges and opportunities.
Whether the consultation takes place within my Design Studio or on your property, experience has shown that within 2-3+ hours of time a rough concept can materialize. This service is customized to meet the needs of the client and from there discussions can be had on how to bring the concept to reality.
