Description: We need help designing and landscaping our backyard. We would like to add bushes and trees that would provide a pop of color, fragrance, and some privacy. The back yard is on 0.7 acres of land and was previously farm land. Currently, there is no landscaping done to the backyard; there is only a border of mulch outlining the backyard.
Timeline: We would like to start installing the plants next spring/summer.
Budget for design work: TBD

Project: Cono/Tarleton Home | Bear Creek Reservoir/Bogart/Jackson Co.
Contact: Rick Tarleton, Email: email@example.com, Phone: 706 254-6253
Description: Our property encompasses a peninsula extending into Bear Creek Reservoir, a total of 5 acres. Half of this area was recently acquired after ~1.5 acres of it was clear-cut by the previous owner. The remainder of the 5 acres remained heavily wooded. Site improvement goals: Reestablish/develop the cleared space, including: design and construct a road and paths (a circulation plan) encompassing a recently seeded ½ acre wildflower meadow, a new vegetable garden, privacy plantings and fruit bushes and trees; design and construct a large wood platform with partially covered pavilion, possibly a fire pit, small play lawn; Replant native and interesting trees that will reestablished the original wooded space and meld with current forest. Opportunities: design work, possibly oversee construction, motivated and involved homeowners. Challenges: Relatively few – it is a clean slate. Lots of bare red clay and rocks to work with. Plans must account for considerable deer population.
Timeline for completion: ASAP but we are happy to do in stages
Budget for design work: expected to be < $1,000 but depends on scope
Budget for installation: $20K to $50K depending on scope and amount performed by homeowner
Project: 235 Bryanwood Drive Remodel | Jefferson, GA
Contact: Julie Ballman, 770-312-9520, firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Description: We prepare to remodel a 1954 mid-century home that we are in the process of purchasing. The home is right at 4000 square feet and is chock-full of original materials – from what we understand the kitchen is the only thing that has been updated (in the 1980s). It is a “time capsule” of sorts and is absolutely stunning! We are so excited about purchasing this gem and while we definitely want to update it, we do not want to “violate” the original design integrity. We are hoping to: remodel the kitchen, add a mud-room/laundry space, add a new/re-designed roof on 50% of home, and create a new garage.
Opportunities: well-cared for home; interior and exterior design; large home; historic property
Challenges: large space; not violating the original design
Timeline for Completion: 6 months-1 year
Budget for Design: To be discussed
Budget for Installation: $100,000-$125,000

Project: Japanese Inspired Backyard | Buckhead, GA
Contact: Aarti Aggarwal/Vinay Matai, 678-640-1238, email@example.com
Project Description: We are inspired by Japanese gardens after visiting Japan 2 years ago. We ripped out many of the bushes and shrubbery shortly after we moved in, so it is basically a blank slate with one large tree. We want a walkable space, open and clean with short, soft grass. There is a swing, but it’s old and needs to be replaced. We would like to incorporate: rocks, pebbles, stone walkway, Buddha sculpture, bamboo along the bring exterior wall, Japanese Red Maple tree, varied green bushes, a water fountain, lights, fake paneled window. Also, we want a small herb garden. There is a nice size deck that needs to be re-finished. We are open to see a multitude of designs that are possible in this space. It would be great to continue the Japanese theme into the front yard with a few elements.
Opportunities: ability to create a unique, creative landscape and herb garden design, cozy deck space, and installation
Challenges: want to do a lot with a small space and budget
Timeline for Completion: Around 2 months
Budget for Design Work: Flexible
Budget for Installation: $10,000
Project Name: Naturesque Backyard in Winterville | Winterville, GA
Contact: Lawrence Harris, 678-814-2230, firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Description: We are hoping to create an oasis of a .75-acre backyard that is relaxing and walkable. There are many great potential plants: magnolia, daffodils, and beautiful trees. An incline to the house does collect water with rain, but it also creates an opportunity to design a pathway through the existing nature and plants in the yard. The yard is basically a blank slate. Would like to see a design that makes the yard a useable space (walkway, sitting area) without compromising the natural landscape.
Opportunities: large yard; blank slate; planting opportunities
Challenges: Yard has a lot of trees which homeowner likes, but would like them to be purposeful; weeds grow back quickly; lots of underbrush
Timeline for completion: Spring-Summer 2019
Budget for design work: $200
Budget for installation: Conservative
