Our New Client Process

Thank you for considering our services for your garden project.
  • Initially, we will meet at your property and review your specific needs.
  • At that meeting, we will obtain a retainer of $1,000 which will be applied toward the preparation of your proposals including any subsequent meetings and then directly to the work that is completed on your property, per proposals.
  • Please note: the retainer does not apply toward retail sales at Linden Hill Gardens and is not refundable.
  • If possible, it is helpful to the design process for you to visit our display gardens or an installed project to help us understand the type of plants or hardscape that you desire.
  • Jerry and staff will then prepare proposals for your review.
  • Upon signed agreement to the proposals with the required deposit payment, we will schedule your project.
  • Please note: our schedule is dictated by when we received your payment and approval.
  • Once again we thank you for your consideration and look forward to the opportunity to craft a garden for you to enjoy.
