SECOND NATURE LANDSCAPE DESIGN offers full landscape design services for clients that require a complete, detailed and to-scale plan.  It includes an in-depth study of the site and helping you to establish what it is that you want from your property.  Having all of the details and information for your project located in one place is a great tool to have for moving forward with your landscape endeavors. 

1. Site Analysis

2. CAD Design

3. Concept 

4. Final Presentation



The Design Process: 


  • an initial meeting on site together to discuss details and general direction

  • site analysis and measuring

  • studio design time

  • conceptual design meeting with client

  • completed project presented at final meeting





  • ​a large plan view, computer-generated drawing in a to-scale format​

  • a plant list showing common/botanical names, quantities required and purchase size suggestions

  • a color plant photo catalog of plants suggested from your new design


Second Nature Landscape Design offers a professional drawing that can be provided to installation professionals for bidding purposes.  It can also be a great tool for a do-it-yourself project that can be installed over time and at your own pace as time and budget allows.


A great opportunity to have all of your decisions and plans for your outdoors spaces in one easy-to-comprehend place!  


It includes, but is not limited to: spacial organization and development, problem solving with existing conditions, hardscaping for form and style and planting bed layout with appropriate plant selections.





My design process begins with an Initial Design Meet Up that will allow us to meet in person at your location so that we can learn more about each other and your desires for the outdoor space at hand.  We will briefly discuss your ideas and I will offer some general advice based on my experience and vision.  It allows me to get a good feel for the site and the depth of design work required.  


There is a $75 fee for this one hour visit within the Portland/Metro area. Moving forward with the design process, this fee will be applied in its entirety to the sum of design packages #2 through #4 below. You will receive my written design proposal after this meeting.  



  1.  Small Area/Courtyard**             $350

  2.  Front Yard Design Only                $750 

  3.  Back Yard Design Only                $950 

  4.  Full Property Design                     $1500 

**The $75 Initial Design Meet Up Fee will not be applied to the future design fee for the Small Area / Courtyard option.       


NOTE:  Each property is unique and design needs are all so very different.  Ultimately, my design fees are based on size and topography of property, scope of work required, design complexity and location.  Fees can fluctuate, either up or down based on the above mentioned components as required.   


I ask for a deposit of 50% of the quoted design fee before the process can begin.  Scheduling may be necessary and is highly suggested during the busy season.   


I accept checks and can also invoice you via Square.  I can also accept bank-to-bank transfers using Zelle and Venmo.
