FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you charge for an estimate or design suggestions?
There's no charge for our initial site visit or proposal. Besides gathering measurements and other information needed for a proposal, we'll also go over some design ideas for your project and discuss whether formal design drawings are necessary. Visit our Landscape Design page for more information on design plans and costs.
What does a patio cost?
Every project is unique so there's no easy answer to that question. There are many factors to consider, including choice of materials and complexity of project. But, a minimum budget of $20 per square-foot is reasonable. For a more accurate assessment, schedule a consultation with Justin. He'll help you explore all the options, and set a budget for your project.
When can you schedule my project?
That's often one of the hardest questions to answer. Projects are added to our job list on a first-come first-served basis, and our backlog can vary from season to season. We look at new projects every week and projects can last from one day to one year. The good news is though, CountryScape isn't a one man show! We've got multiple crews of highly trained hardscape installers, and we're often able to start your project within three to six months. Sometimes sooner!
