They're not just for looks —
landscape improvements have many benefits.
Avoid Costly Mistakes
Diving into landscape projects without a careful plan results in furniture that doesn’t quite fit, plants that die months after planting, and areas that don’t flow together.
After you’re done with YardKit, you’ll have a thoughtful plan to hand over to a contractor, review with homeowner associations for approval, or take it to your local garden center for DIY renovations. Your plan will be at a 1"=10' scale, so you can trust that new features are realistic. No furniture-that-doesn't-fit here or costly contractor revisions mid-construction.
Save a Lot on Fees
Hiring a private landscape designer or landscape architect costs $4,000 on average. Many homeowners try to avoid these fees by planning outdoor improvements themselves, without a process and without guidance.
YardKit will save you the costs of a private designer by getting you to a great result through simple principles and a proven process.

We Love Landscapes
We love them so much, in fact, that it pains us to see so many yards neglected or underused. Our vision is to turn dying lawns, overgrown gardens, and new, blank slates into something functional and beautiful.
