Guidelines to Help You Budget For Your Outdoor Upgrades

No two landscaping projects are alike, which is why landscape pricing varies greatly. When budgeting for your project, you'll have to consider the size of and site conditions on your property, site preparation and removals, what plants and features you'd like to add or upgrade, which materials you'd like to use, and more. 

We're committed to providing accurate quotes for your project after your consultation. However, we understand that you'd like to get a better idea of what your project might cost, so our landscape pricing page is designed to help you understand what to expect.

Design: $1,500-6,000+

Your new outdoor oasis starts here! No matter what you're looking for, a good design is the roadmap to a new residential or commercial landscape. Your design includes:

  • To-scale 2D color drawing of the site plan
  • Locates hardscape and landscape features
  • Images for inspiration
  • Plant images and native ranges
  • 3D designs and construction documentation are available upon request for an additional cost
  • Our design projects will include installation by our crew—we typically don't do design-only projects

Landscapes: $10,000-50,000+

How far should you go with your new landscape? It all depends on how you use your space, but 10 percent of your home value is a great place to start when budgeting for outdoor enhancements. This is what that budget can do for you:

  • Drainage/downspout extensions
  • Curbing
  • Boulders and flagstone/paver drylaid paths
  • Plantings
  • Curb appeal
  • Back and/or front yard
  • Sod/seed

No Two Landscaping Projects Are Alike for Projects Large and Small, Residential or Commercial

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:

Dream Landscapes: $20,000-50,000+

A Place to Relax: $10,000-100,000+

Your outdoor oasis is personal, and the overall cost will be determined by the size of your space, the features you'd like to add, and the materials you decide to use. Here are the general price ranges for some popular features and services:

Our Happy Clients Tell All

With over 120 combined years of experience in Frankfort and the surrounding area, we've built lasting relationships with our clients. Nothing makes us happier than knowing they're enjoying their outdoor spaces. Here's what a few of the hundreds of clients we have worked with have to say about working with Inside Out Landscape Design:

Pools: $75,000-200,000+

Inside Out Landscape Design is a design-build firm specializing in unique projects. We generally work with stone and pavers, though we will do concrete if there is an unusual design involved or if it includes stone or paver detailing. If you are interested in a pool with a standard concrete deck, we would not be the ideal option for you.

Pools start around $75,000; a pool with a paver or stone deck ranges from $100,000-200,000 and up. There are so many features you can add to your pool area that will change the price of the project:

  • Paver Pool Deck: $10,000-60,000+
  • Tanning Ledge: $6,500+
  • Spa: $18,000-25,000+
  • Pool landscaping: $10,000-40,000+
  • Retaining/sitting walls: $10,000-100,000+ (engineering for walls over four feet tall starts at $1,500)
  • Water features: $3,000-20,000+
  • Fire pits: $3,500-8,000+
  • Fireplaces: $10,000-30,000+
  • Pool pavilion or structure: $35,000-80,000+

Maintenance: $3,000-25,000+

We offer maintenance services for commercial clients and our current residential clients. These services are customized on a monthly, quarterly, or spring-and-fall schedule and may include: 

  • Weed removal or spraying
  • Plant inspection/quality control
  • General bed cleanup
  • Pruning
  • Removing unhealthy growth
  • Fertilizer
  • Pre-emergent

  • Mulching

Our Landscape Pricing Applies to Projects Throughout Central Kentucky

Frankfort is our home, but we're proud to serve the Central Kentucky region. You'll find our sustainable landscapes throughout these nearby areas:

A Simple Process with a Focus on Sustainability

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 $1,000, full site plans for large properties ranging $3-8,000, and an average design rate of about $1,500-3,000. Projects that are out of our work area or may be DIY require a $5,000 minimum design fee. 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!
