Most people spend a significant amount of their time in the spring, summer, and fall outside in their yards; whether it is relaxing with the family enjoying some fresh air, or entertaining by the fire pit watching the sunset.
Your yard is somewhere you spend quality personal time,
it’s time to make it a space you love!
There is no budget too small or too large. It comes down to your priorities and what you are comfortable spending.
A good equation to use is…. If you spend 10% of your homes value on landscaping, you can expect to see a 20% increase in the value of your home. For example, if your home’s value is $500,000 and you spend $50,000 on new landscaping, you could expect to sell your home for $600,000 post landscaping project.
Budget is obviously a big part of choosing the right landscaper for you! Landscaping often costs more than most people realize, and this is because it is much more involved than people think. There are multiple skill sets, trades, and machinery involved, and people typically only think about the install (planting or hardscape) when they are planning out landscaping, and not the actual preparation that goes into a project.
Before we do any planting or hardscaping installation, we need to take care of excavation and demo, drainage, and site preparation. Preparing the base of the project usually runs about 30%-40% of the overall project cost. The reason so much attention is placed on this is because having a strong foundation is fundamental to a project being completed to a high-level of quality and lasting a long time.
Generally, the necessary budget for a project is 2-3 times more than people initially think it will be. Boulder Landscape and Design is not the most expensive landscaping company out there, but we are certainly not the cheapest. You will always be able to find a company providing lower estimates, but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. We often are brought on site to remedy construction issues from a previous installation that was not thought through or installed incorrectly.
If you have a commercial property, apartment complex or rental property, a town center, or golf course, having distinctive well-maintained landscape creates an inviting space for customers to enjoy, and a differentiator from your competitors.
In order to provide accurate estimates, we need to come see the space, take measurements, evaluate if there are any installation constraints etc.
Having a design plan allows us to provide an extremely accurate estimate for the project. By getting on the same page visually on the front-end and making adjustments in the design plan compared to making adjustments during construction, the estimate that coincides with the design becomes very accurate.
We are confident the price we quote you, is the price it will be for us to complete the work. There are no hidden fees in our estimates. The only changes in the quoted price will come from changes to the design between the client and designer or unforeseen problems that could arise during the construction process.
Please understand our material prices can fluctuate considerably throughout season, therefore the estimate we give you is valid for 60 days from the date sent without a commitment. Beyond the 60 days, we will need to send you a new estimate for the project.
