Design Services

Stonegate Gardens offers affordable, professional garden and landscape design services to assist you in creating a beautiful outdoor living space. Whether your design needs are small or large, our design process has several different approaches to best suit your needs.

We offer In-Store and At-Home Design consultations. With both services, designers will discuss your needs for your property and help you come up with a personalized goal. We recognize that some clients prefer to complete their property in stages while others prefer to complete it all at once. Our goal is to create a trusting relationship to follow you through the time it takes to complete the vision.

Landscape Design

We offer two levels of professional landscape design services to our customers.  An advanced appointment is required to meet with a Stonegate Landscape Designer.

IN-STORE LANDSCAPE DESIGN SERVICE (No Charge)

Our In-Store Design service is best suited for one visual area such as a front yard, foundation planting or backyard. This service is complimentary as our goal is to assist you in selecting the best plants to be successful with at your home.

To assure success our designers will need the following information from the homeowner:

  • Accurate measurements of the area to be designed
  • Photos of the area
  • Site conditions
  • Location of North on your property
  • Sunlight conditions

ON-SITE LANDSCAPE DESIGN (Starting at $250)

During the initial consultation, we visit your property and discuss with you what you need. We take photographs, measurements, assess the conditions of the site and note any soil issues. We find over 90% of our clients prefer this option.

Following the consultation, a detailed summary is created along with a sketch of plants for the proposed area. This process typically takes 1 to 2 weeks depending on the time of year. Once completed, the designer reviews the plan with you. Adjustments can be made at this time.

Hardscape Design

Hardscape refers to the construction of permanent landscape features typically made of stone, brick or concrete. A hardscape design could include a path of paving stones, driveway, a stone wall, fire-pit, pool deck, terrace, water feature or outdoor kitchen. Hardscape elements can provide both beautiful aesthetic value and functional features to your property.

Stonegate Gardens Hardscape design is provided by Bruce MacDowell, owner of Bruce MacDowell & Co. and Stonegate Gardens.
