Frequently Asked Questions


+ What's inside the box?

Your Kit will include a some tools of the trade (a pencil, mini scale, long tape measure, and sunscreen in a handy pouch), welcome card that looks like a treasure map, vellum plan layers, and six easy-to-follow booklets that will get your excited about your outdoor space.

+ What is a Concept Plan?

A Concept Plan is a drawing that sets the overall vision for landscape renovations, ensuring that all outdoor areas are useful and connected. You can either hand this over to an installer, present it to your Homeowner's Association for approvals, or start building DIY projects.

+ How long does it take to finish the Concept Plan?

It’s different for everyone, but the general average is about an hour per step. We've included the estimated time to finish each step on the booklet cover so you'll know how much time to budget.

Whether you want to space out the steps a half-hour at a time, or power through the Kit in a day is up to you!
