MWhite Design is an award winning professional design-build firm specializing in Classic Traditional as well as Classic Modern landscape design.
A collaborative effort between designer and client , each design is specific to site, scale, architecture and agriculture, as well as budget of the client.
 We start with an initial consultation billed at an hourly rate, where we go over needs, wants and preferences, as well making  recommendations on plants and hardscapes to be used.
.After the initial consultation, a set of preliminary designs are drawn-up, reviewed and changes made.
These changes are then incorporated into a Master Plan. It is this plan which will be colored, and include specific plants and hardscapes as well as recommendations on materials and any other instructions you might need in order to execute the design.
You may then use your own landscape contractor or one specifically recommended by us from our licensed and insured professional team to do the installation. Master Plans start at $1000.00 on the average.0

Because Master Plans are not always necessary , several different services are available.

  • Design consultation: This is based on an hourly fee of $200.00, with $100.00 for each additional hour. We walk the site and discuss changes and add- ons which will renew and revitalise your garden .. Many times all that is needed is removal of a few tired shrubs, additional planting, pruning and some color. All of which are addressed in the consultation. Recommendations on garden accessories as well as garden furniture are also included.
  • Specifically designed areas: This fee is based on the size and detail of the area  with an average price of $500.00 This would include Ponds, Decks, Patios,Walks, Outdoor Rooms, Side Yards, Vegetable Gardens, Perennial Borders, and Front Entry Planting and Pots. A set of four detailed plans with measurements and hardscape recommendations as well as elevations if needed, are included with this service.
  • Hardscape Designs: This fee is based on size and detail of project with an average fee of $500.00 This would include Masonry and or Stone Walls, Fencing, Gates, Trellising, Pergolas and Garden Buildings.  A set of four detailed drawings and elevations if needed, are included with this service

  • On-Line-Design: This fee is based on the size and scope of the project. To accurately quote an on- line design whether it be a consultation or a full Master Plan I would need photographs. After seeing the photos and reading  your " Wish List"  a preliminary design is done. We will then set up a phone appointment to go over the design making changes where needed. A master plan is then drawn up to scale with any measurements you might need. A detailed plant list is also done with substitutions as well as plant specific information. All hardscape recommendations as well as any other recommendations are discussed at this time. Once you receive the master plan we then set up another appointment to go over any questions you have, as well as a time frame for executing the work.  Fees for on-line services average out at $800.00 for a Master plan.

With over 30 years of designing landscapes both on the east and west coast as well as internationally my approach is both friendly and personal.  I take great pride in both detail and workmanship in every phase of the project.
