Design / Build:

Starting a landscape project can indeed feel overwhelming, but we're here to help! Below are some of our most frequently asked questions that may provide clarity and guidance as you start on your landscaping journey.

If you're ready to schedule a design consultation with us, please fill out our design questionnaire. The design questionnaire will provide our landscape designers with valuable information about your project and preferences.

The short answer, yes. We approach each project individually and start with a design consultation with the client. Once we have an idea of what our client is wanting our landscape designers will get to work and create technical drawings and 3D renderings. During this time we will determine the scope of work and give a detailed plan for executing the work by providing a construction estimate for cost and timeline.

What if you already have professional landscape design plans? We can work with that. All you would need to do is provide us the designs and we can work up an estimate.

Each landscaping project is different and depends on size of yard and design elements involved.

Most large construction projects start around $50,000+
Small projects with paver patio, irrigation system and plants/grass starts around $25,000+

During the design process we will provide you with a contract agreement detailing out hours for scope of work needed to help you determine your overall budget.

Not always. Depending on the scope of work will determine if a permit is needed. At the initial design consultation we will establish what aspects of your landscaping project might require a permit and what are the involved costs.

Malone's Landscape provides a stress free experience and we will handle submitting the application(s) for any permits we might need for your landscaping project. All you will need to do is sit back, relax and start dreaming of what you will do first once your project is complete.

It's hard to say because each project is unique and has its own timeline. Once the size and scope of the project is determined we can then provide a guideline as to the time required to complete. Keep in mind, there are many factors that could affect a project timeline including design decisions or changes, materials, permit requirements, site conditions, and weather to just name a few.

Malone's Landscape take pride in approaching each project with care and making sure each step is done the correctly and efficiently to maximize your budget and ultimately create the outdoor living space you've been dreaming of.

Our construction starting lead times will depend on the time of year and elements within the project. During our peak busy season, spring and summer, we typically have a longer lead time. Keep in mind, as the design and planning phase comes to a close, we will be able to provide you an estimated construction schedule and determine the start date.

Tip: If you want to ensure you can enjoy your newly landscaped outdoor living space for the late spring and summer weather we have in the pacific northwest, then winter is a great time to start working through the design and planning phases.

Take a more detailed look into our design/build process.

Think of hardscaping as the elements in your landscape design that are the non-living elements that get incorporated into a landscape to define a space.

It's a term in the landscaping industry used for patios, masonry, concrete, pavers, stone walkways, retaining walls, fire pits, decks, pergolas, and more!

A common misconception living in the Pacific Northwest is that you do not need an irrigation system because it rains a lot. In our area we do highly recommend installing an irrigation system for your landscape. In the summer months we tend to dry out and without consistent watering schedule your plants and grass will be in distress and die.

Protecting your landscape investment is important and by installing an irrigation system you can provide efficient and effective water to each area of your yard.

Backflow is the unwanted reversal of water into a clean (safe for drinking) water supply. Irrigation systems must have a backflow preventer installed to keep the irrigation water from contaminated your house or property drinking water supply with fertilizers, bacteria, or pesticides.

This may require a permit and should be inspected annually.
