Questions and Answers

Which product is right for me?

If you're happy with the general layout of your yard, but would like to rethink your plants and their placement, Plant Kit is for you. If you need a comprehensive design for either your whole yard or an area in your yard, take a look at either DIY Kit (a self-service process) or Vision Kit (a technology-driven process with professional design support).

What does Plant Kit include?

With Plant Kit, YardKit experts study up on your home's location to determine what grows best, being mindful of common concerns like deer and seasonal allergies. The result is a custom plant palette of hardy, locally-suited species that look great together. You'll also receive a companion Design Guide with tips for considering plant layout, style, and placement in your yard, as well as an Installation Guide so you know how to buy your plants, what to ask at a nursery, and how to keep new gardens happy.

Does the DIY Kit require any special skills?

We like to call our DIY Kit the first ever "landscape architect in a box." It's tailor-made for those who like jumping into projects, or those who want to make the engaging process a family activity. Through five simple steps, we'll walk you through a process that helps you measure your yard, draw out a to-scale base plan, discover what amenities you can put where, and how to connect everything together. Anyone can do it. If you're still nervous, try Vision Kit and we'll pull in one of our professionals.

Will you visit my property with a Vision Kit?

YardKit's design process is conducted remotely! Thanks to new technology, we'll have you measure your yard through an easy-to-use app, which we combine with satellite imagery behind the scenes. This innovative process enables us to envision a fabulous outcome for your property more efficiently and at a far lower cost.

What are the deliverables of Vision Kit?

With Vision Kit, our licensed professionals will collaborate with you through our signature process to deliver a design that sets the overall vision for your property. We'll ensure that all selected outdoor areas are thoughtful, useful, and cohesive. We also build a custom style guide, a palette of surfaces and materials, and an installation approach custom to your style and project budget. From there, you can either hand this over to a contractor for a realistic bid, present it to your homeowner association for approvals, or start building on your own whenever you're ready.

How long does Vision Kit take to make?

You can expect to have a final deliverable within three weeks, depending on the size of your project, though we'll be collaborating with you along the way to learn about your style preferences, outdoor living ambitions, and installation budget.
