The Sherman Residence

BEFORE

ELP_Sherman_Before“My wife and I moved to Texas last fall and bought a house with great, but unrealized garden potential. We knew we wanted to put in a perennial flower bed, but we had no idea where to start in the design process. We moved from the northeast, where the list of plants that can survive winter is mercifully short; we were totally overwhelmed by how many plants can thrive in this climate! We weren’t sure which plants would match well, or even what shape the garden outline should be. ” – Sherman Residence

PLANT MATERIAL SIZE & DESIGN LAYOUT WERE CONSIDERED FOR A DIY INSTALLATION, AND IT WAS CONSIDERED THAT THE FAMILY WOULD EXPECT THEIR SECOND CHILD WITH LITTLE TIME TO SPEND ON INSTALLATION AND FUTURE MAINTENANCE.

“Easy Landscape Plan was a perfect solution. More traditional landscape design companies won’t give you the time of day unless you want to hire them to do all the work (and we were happy to acquire the plants ourselves and get our hands dirty putting in the bed!). With Easy Landscape Plan, we got a beautiful, fully-conceived design at a very reasonable price without even having to hire and schedule someone to come out to our house.

The process was incredibly simple. We filled out a form on Easy Landscape Plan’s website, where we could specify what sort of look we were going for (in our case an English Style garden- quite the design challenge since it needs to survive the summer heat!). The form was simple but thorough, and it included a box for any additional comments we had. We submitted it along with a photo of the area and a survey of our property, and we heard back from Kristin almost immediately.

Within a week, Kristin emailed us a design, explanation of design intent, and list of plants complete with photos and alternate options. She even included a materials list recommending purchase size for each plant (4 in. pot, 1 gallon, etc.). She went above and beyond in selecting plants that would be perfect for our property, climate, and family – avoiding poisonous varietals since we have young kids and the flower bed is in the backyard. ” – Sherman Residence
