On Site Pond Design Consultations (North Carolina (NC) Area) (Call For Pricing)
An on site pond / Water Garden design consultation is a very good investment of your time and money if you are serious about installing a water feature in your landscape or upgrading an existing water feature. Once you contact us we will document some basic information about your project and schedule you an appointment with one of our water feature design professionals. On average an on site design consultation will last 1-2 hours. We strongly recommend that you plan a time so that the entire family (kids included) can be involved in the initial design consultation. We will spend enough time with you and your family to discuss your water feature project in detail and to answer any questions/concerns you may have. Topics that will be discussed include
- Why do you want a water garden?
- How will your family use and interact with the water garden?
- What is your long term plan for the project area?
- What is your budget for your overall landscape project?
- What portion of your budget are you anticipating spending on your water garden?
Discussing a project budget is a crucial part of the initial pond design phase; this will give us a basis for your design as well as familiarize ourselves with each other so we can maximize the design segment of our consultation. Additionally we will be prepared to answer any questions you have about the project or our company in general. After all questions from both sides have been addressed we will proceed to the location that you have in mind for your water Feature. It is important that we have a fluid relationship at this time. Sometimes we will suggest other areas of the yard that you may have not considered as potential sites. This is the “creative” part of our consultation. We will interactively discuss possible pond designs/locations and together agree upon a location and design for your water feature. It is important that you keep in mind that you are paying us to offer suggestions, familiarize you with our company, explain the installation process and help design your water feature. However, this is your home and ultimately your decision on which design suggestion you are going to be happy with.
Once a design has been decided on we will take some measurements and in most cases be able to provide you with a detailed quote for installing your water feature that day The last step is to schedule your installation date and sign contracts. Upon completion of our design consultation process you will clearly see the value of our expertise and the initial investment that we place into your project designs.
Detailed Project Quotes/Drawings (Nominal Fee)
For larger or more elaborate projects we will need to do a more detailed design and quote for your project. We will schedule a follow up consultation to go over the quote and produce project drawings for your detailed review.
What is requested of you?
Once you have contacted us and scheduled a consultation you will receive a welcome letter/email from us. We strongly advise you to take the time to review these materials prior to our consultation.

Additionally, we have placed a lot of time and money in providing you a wealth of knowledge and information on our website pertaining to our company and design philosophies. You should take advantage of this information as it will provide us more time to spend on the specifics of your project during our design consultation
