If the design is focused in one area, there will not be any additional fees. If the scope of the project is broad and involves a large portion of the yard or structural elements, design fees will be billed at $100 per hour. During the initial consultation the designer will give you an estimate of hours required to complete the design and the associated cost. Payment is then required up front prior to developing the the plan. A typical 1/2 acre residence will cost $300 – $1000 to develop a detailed design. This cost is dependent on the size of the yard and the level of detail required for the masterplan. Costs will vary accordingly. This amount will be discussed at the initial consultation and agreed upon by the client and designer. Upon the completion of the design, the client may request changes to the plan. If the changes are minor, one revision will be completed with no additional cost. If the changes are extensive, then the same $100 hourly fee applies.
