Residential Design Build - The Process

A Boulder Gardener is a full service design/build and landscape maintenance company serving the Boulder area since 1990. From the initial phone call, through installation and a final walk through, A Boulder Gardener is here to provide you the highest quality professional landscape installation available in the area.

  1. Site Consultation
    The initial phone call to A Boulder Gardener will begin the process of determining your landscape needs. Once your general needs are established an appointment for a site consultation will be set with our landscape designer to meet with you at your property. During the site consultation we will discuss in detail how you want to use your outdoor space. If it is determined a comprehensive design is needed, a design fee will be assessed for the specific area(s) of interest. Design fees are based on the size of your project and the amount of detail required for the design development.
  2. Design Process
    The design procedure begins by measuring the site and taking digital photographs. A plat is required to determine property lines and to confirm existing features. A design will be developed to scale, including existing features and will incorporate the concepts discussed during the site consultation.
  3. Proposal
    Once the design is complete, a presentation will be scheduled with you, to review the design. Proposals can be broken into predetermined phases based on your established budget for the project.
  4. Installation
    A Boulder Gardener is proud to offer you the craftsmanship and attention to detail that you expect from a professional installation. Through years of experience, our crews are here to provide you the highest quality installation of planting beds, stone walks, walls and patios.


Upon the completion of your installation an appointment will be scheduled with your designer to review the various components of your projects. We guarantee all of our work. Trees and shrubs are guaranteed for one year, perennials for ninety days and annuals for thirty days, at a one time replacement. During the review of your project, you will be given complete plant care instructions. A Boulder Gardener also offers a variety of maintenance program services to help retain the integrity of your investment.
