ALCHEMY offers a few different types of consultations to fit your needs and wants.
1. Design & Installation consultation: This is a free consultation that usually runs 15-30 minutes. It is intended for clients that want us to install the design and manage all that this requires. After our meeting you will receive an emailed estimate within 5 business days, usually sooner.
2.Garden Support consultation: This is for the DIY'er that wants help with new ideas, direction on which plants should go where, light requirements, problem solving, maintenance requirements and general picking of my brain. These are $150 for the first hour and $25 each additional 15 minutes.
3.DIY Installation consultation: This is for the DIY'er that wants me to design their yard but they will do the installation themselves. This consultation takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hrs depending on the size and complexity of the project. I require a deposit for the design work at the time of consultation. You can read more about this service under the DIY section.
DESIGN & INSTALLATION
We begin this journey with a free consultation that commonly lasts 15-30 minutes. During which time I will listen to your wants and needs as we walk your yard together. I will ask a few detailed questions and get back to you within 5 business days with an emailed estimate. Once we have agreed upon the estimate amount I requie a deposit of half the total of the project to initiate the design process and secure a date on our schedule.
Once the deposit has been received I will email you an invoice reflecting the deposit amount with the remaining balance and begin your design. I will email you a *mock up* of the design with attached photos of key plants to be used. After you review my suggestions we can make adjustments if any are desired.
My goal is for you and the plants to be happy now and well into the future.
*Please note that all mock ups are of a projected and mature landscape. It most commonly takes 3-4 years for all plants to mature.
MAINTENANCE & REJUVENATION
Quality landscaping care is commonly underestimated, yet is essential to the health, longevity and aesthetic of your landscape. Alchemy Gardens offers maintenance services on a case-by-case basis with no contracts. No matter how big or small the landscape we excel at detail and are committed to sustainable and natural results that you will notice. Contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation and discuss your personal needs.
*we do not offer lawn mowing services at this time*
DIY & GARDEN SUPPORT
I love talking about plants and designing spaces. Feel free to contact me with any gardening needs and ideas.
1. Gardening support consultations. This is an opportunity to pick my brain so to speak. I help with anything from plant selection, design ideas, maintenance issues, and where to purchase materials. It costs $150 for the first hour and $25 each additional 15 minutes.
2. DIY Installation. This is for the person that really wants to do everything themselves but doesn't know how to design their space. All DIY installation packages come with a mock up of what the mature design will look like, an easy to follow blueprint with corresponding legend to numbered plants, instructions on how to properly plant, water, and maintain your new yard. And I am always available by text or email to answer your questions. These designs cost $350-$1500 depending on the size and complexity of the project.
If you need assisstance aquiring or delivering any of your materials we are happy to help with that as well.
3. I offer planting parties, lead instructional gatherings, and have done small scale Q & A's.
POTS, PONDS & PLANTERS
POTS: Stacy spent 5 years doing solely containers and pots. We really shine here. If you are looking for something truly unique then we're your ladies. We also offer customized steel planters for an eclectic and modern design element.
PONDS: Stock tank ponds are an underappreciated garden element. They offer relief to birds and other creatures during our long hot summers, calming sounds, and an opportunity to grow plants that otherwise wouldn't thive in our climate. They come in many shapes and sizes to fit into your design. We use gambusia, a native fish to keep the mosquito larva controled. I actually dare to say (as the one always getting eaten by the mosquitos) that stock ponds help to control the mosquito population. We have 3 ponds on our property and I have never been bitten less. Between the fish and all the other winged creatures that consider mosquitoes a nice snack, I believe we have the fewest amount of mosquitoes in all my years.
BIRDS, BUTTERFLIES & WILDLIFE HABITATS
We are avid bird watchers and nature lovers. Our designs always incorporate plants for the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. We can go as big or as small as you need with this idea. You can also get certified as a natural wildlife habitat or a texas wildscape.
