Landscape Consultation

Fall 2020 update: Due to Covid-19 Resilience Design is currently offering limited on-site consultations and land tending services. We are currently scheduling consultations 2-4 weeks out. Contact us to discuss your project: 

I offer consultation to address a wide range of landscape design, horticulture and landscape restoration issues, see Services for a full list. Consultations can be a stand-alone service or the first step in a design or planning process.

The initial consultation rate is $150 which includes one hour on site and a follow-up email with a customized resource list. Visits are 1 hour minimum, billed in 15 minute increments thereafter at $100/hr. Payment is expected at time of service. Initial planning meetings can be held on site, or at another location. Travel fees may apply outside the Portland Metro area.

Questions? Ready to schedule a consultation? Email

The following suggestions will help you get the most out of your consultation. Please dress for the weather, be prepared to take notes and bring the following:

  • Notebook and pen (or voice/video recorder)
  • List of your questions
  • List of your initial ideas/needs/wishes
  • Initial budget ideas
  • Map or plan of your property if you have one. Or you can make your own: (PDF) Make_a_Base_Map
  • Completed design assessment (if applicable): (PDF) Landscape_Questionnaire_Resilience_Design
  • Plant labels if you would like plant identifications made (I can provide these if arrangements are made in advance.)
  • Flagging tape if plants need to be marked for transplanting or removal

We kindly request:

  • Please clear your site of trip hazards and clean up pet debris before the site visit
  • Please keep pets on a leash or in a separate space from the project area.  (We love pets but it can be understandably exciting or challenging to have a new person moving through their space.)
  • For health and safety, please disclose recently or regularly used lawn & garden products on site

Covid-19 precautions

Due to Covid-19, as we begin to offer consultations again we have some new policies in place:

  • We will wear masks, please wear a mask.
  •  We will maintain social distancing, at least 6’ apart.
  • We will remain outdoors and will avoid touching anything in your yard and won’t exchange papers, pens, etc.
  • We carry hand sanitizer with us and use it as needed.
  • We will reschedule if we are feeling unwell or have known exposure to anyone who is sick. Please reschedule if you or anyone in your circle is unwell or has known exposure to anyone who is sick.
  • Thank you for helping keep our community healthy and safe!

Thank you and I look forward to hearing about your project!
