The Consultation is your opportunity to invite 22 years of expertise to your landscape.

Don’t know where to start? I DO.

Let’s Talk!

Book a one or two hour appointment with me, Landscape Designer Alex Spare! Consultation fees do apply. This is what I do – well. My passion is helping my clients improve upon their outdoor spaces by translating needs and wants into tangible, implementable solutions to a myriad of landscape/hardscape issues in the most practical, yet aesthetically pleasing way possible.

Having designed, estimated, sold, and managed the production of projects ranging from small garden spaces to entire estates, my unique blend of education and experience means I keenly know what it takes to not only make a project look good but get it in the ground and in the ground correctly. Hiring a professional is a great place to begin. SO let’s get started.

The Consultation is dedicated time, designed specifically for you to communicate all your needs and wants for the entire site or a particular project. I will review as much or as little as you would like.
