Take a Peek at Our Work in Lexington & Beyond

We treat our clients—and each outdoor space—like the individuals you are. The result is a unique landscaping design that enhances your existing architecture and takes your lifestyle into consideration. Take a look at some of our landscape transformations, each completed with different challenges and under different budgets:

How to Get Started with Inside Out Landscape Design

Working with us is simple. We follow a transparent process so you know exactly what to expect each step of the way, and we stay in communication with you as we go. Don't hesitate to reach out with your questions at any time:

Complete the inside out questionnaire

In less than 10 minutes, you can answer a few questions (and even upload a few photos!) to help us get to know your landscaping challenges, aspirations, and preferences.

Schedule an Inside Out Consultation Over Zoom or FaceTime

It's time for a walk-through of your outdoor space, so we can see it and get more information about what you'd like! We can do this virtually or in person. The virtual sessions are free; the in-person consultations range from $100-150, and that amount is fully rebated on your design or install cost.

Sign the Design Agreement and Put Down Your Deposit

Within 24 hours of your consultation, Kristin will send you the agreement with the price of the design plan. These are priced at a flat rate based on your existing site and the complexity of the design, with simple designs starting around $600, full site plans for large properties ranging $3-8,000, and an average design rate of about $1,500-3,000. The Design Phase will begin as soon as we receive your signed agreement and deposit, both of which can be done online.

If your project doesn't need a design, you'll get an estimate within one week of your consultation.

Enter the Design Phase

Becky will need to measure and evaluate the site, and she will reach out to you to arrange the best time to do this. She passes that information on to Andrea, who gets to work on your design. For especially large projects, Andrea may be in touch throughout the process to see what you think of the concepts. You'll receive the final concept for review before Kristin estimates the cost of the project.

Attend the Inside Out Presentation Meeting

It's so exciting to see your ideas come to life! You'll have the information you need to envision the completed project, including all the details, plant photos, Construction Agreement, and more. This Construction Agreement is customized for your property, and we aim to be as detailed as possible, which allows us to offer an accurate estimate (no surprises at the end!).

Sign the Construction Agreement and Make the Initial Payment

After we've finalized the scope of the work, you can electronically sign an agreement to the terms of payment. For small projects, this is typically 40% initial payment and 60% upon completion. Larger projects may be divided into 10% upon signing, 40% when we begin the work, 40% when the hardscaping is complete, and the final 10% percent when the entire project is done.

You'll hear from Kristin to schedule an approximate start date, and she'll send you a detailed production email with the next steps in the installation process along with care and maintenance sheets for your reference.

We'll Get Started!

We'll touch base with you the week before your start date, and the crew will call you when they're on the way to the site on the first day of work. We'll coordinate everything—you can simply sit back, relax, and eagerly await the completion of your revamped outdoor space!

Final Walk-Through

Your satisfaction is our priority, so a foreman or manager will walk through the project with you (if you’re available) before we leave the site. If there are any issues, please give us an opportunity to fix them. We would love you to leave us an online review with your feedback!
