I just drew up my first design project for one of my customers. Looking for some feedback here.

That looks pretty cool.

The lavender will look great against the colour of the house. Adding something with white flowers (maybe gardenia ** depends on your climate, but they smell awesome) could be a nice way to bring in another colour.

Very nice! very exciting! you are off to a great start greenscaper, I am excited for your development in this area mainly because design is a favorite part of my service base.

Do you feel this process comes natural to you?

i didn't come up with an exact estimate yet.. been dealing with hurricane sandy the last week *sigh*

i'm thinking somewhere in around $4k though.. 2k for labor, 2k for materials

yes and no.. i grew up always being better at creative things. i originally went to school for architecture but dropped out, went back to school again for graphic design and dropped out again ha.

the part that doesn't come so natural is my knowledge of plants and my general experience with landscape design, which is none besides this here drawing. i can't look at a space and say "ah yes, so and so would look great here." but i mean i've always been good with design and color so that part is a lot more natural.

Nice drawing! looks like it took you an hour! haha

4K sounds like a good price. One thing I thought of is make a spot in their for annuals and then offer them 1 year of free annuals (at least where I live, we do pansies for winter, begonias for summer, and mums for fall) then maybe they will continue to have to put them in....just a thought. Anyway, nice design, I really like it!

I applaud your willingness to tackle the. Process of design and believe you will find your knowledge of plants will increase quickly as you plan your project.

Are you planhning to utilize the paver stone present? Have you identified all the job process to help evaluate all that's involved? It looks like a nice little project thou I would venture to guess you are a bit on the low side for the proposed project.

Good job on developing your skills
