...we can design a $20,000 project or a $100,000 project for the same yard. Which is right for you?


Why is setting a budget so important?

Many times, landscape companies offering “free estimates” will start a project without a budget. This most often leads to a design that's out of touch and priced much higher than you want to spend. The sales-person will end up indiscriminately cutting things out to close the sale. This will not lead to a Great Landscape.

Great Landscape Design

I'm Thomas Gilmore, lead designer here and I want you to know  we take design very seriously at Hillside Gardens. As a matter of fact we consider ourselves a people company first, a design company second and a landscape company last. We offer landscape design as a standalone service for a few reasons.

Firstly, we believe in great design and want to have the freedom of creativity that comes with being rewarded for our time and energy. 

Secondly, if you are paying us to be your designer there will develop a trust that cannot exist when working with a salesperson offering a free design to close a deal. 

Thirdly, when you hire a landscape designer you will get exactly what you want and it will fit your budget.

When you hire us to do your design you'll:

  • tell us what you want or need from your landscape

  • set a budget that fits you

  • get a master landscape plan that looks great and functions well, all within the price you want to pay.

  Have doubts? You're not alone. Some people are reluctant to pay for a professional Landscape Design when many companies are offer "free estimates". Others dont want to discuss their budget out of fear they will be taken advantage of. The truth is, we can design a $20,000 project or a $100,000 project for the same yard. Which is right for you

  If you purchase a design from us you'll also get an estimate; however, you can take our design to other contractors and get a cost comparison if you so choose. If this system of having a committed Professional design your landscape within your budget, sounds good to you, sign up now for a consultation...if you choose to have us do your design the consultation is free.


“The greater damage for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” – Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (Michelangelo) (1475-1564)
