Each project varies, and is determined by scope, site characteristics, and client needs. In general, landscape design projects fall between 85-150+ hours. This includes all design work, client communication, project management, a full set of Construction Documents and color concepts, sketches and a project proposal book. Interior plant styling projects range from 10-50+ hours, also depending on scope and client needs, as well as plant shop visits.
