John and Laura Kelly are landscape designers with over 38 years of office and field experience between them. Working with a landscape designer is different than working with a typical landscape contractor.

What we do is more similar to an architect’s role in home construction rather than a contractor’s or builder’s. Clients pay us for our time and expertise in helping them create their outdoor spaces, whether it is a simple perennial border 2 hour consultation or a multi-year hardscape master plan.

In turn we are your advocates and provide objective, realistic advice fine tuned for your budget and goals.  Since you are paying us for our time we can take that time and create something special and unique to your home or business.   We can provide scaled CAD drawings, plant portfolios, 3D software models, and any other relevant information required for your particular project.

We do charge to visit your home; see our service pages below for all details.

Landscape Consultations  : For simple plant designs in blank areas or to simply discuss your yard for 2 hours. $250.00 in the immediate Capital District. Outlying areas may require additional travel fees.

Landscape Design Packages  : Front yards, back yards, pool areas, or your entire back yard. A detailed, scaled plan you can use to implement your project in phases.  Averaging from $1200.00 – $2300.00. Final pricing to be determined at site visit. There is a minimum $100 fee for any visit to your home if you do not proceed with either a Consultation or Design.
