Frequently Asked Questions

Who will work on my landscape and How much will is cost?

The only people who will work on your landscape are Julie Orr and her employees. Our team members have experience with hardscape, horticultural and lighting and we will all be familiar with your landscape needs. 

We work with many different budget ranges but have found that a typical backyard remodel in the bay area ranges can range anywhere from $50k-150k depending on the materials, size and amenities desired.  Many of our clients choose to work in phases for larger remodels and may for example defer their outdoor kitchen or fireplace to Phase 2 of their installation plan. 

Are you insured and licensed?

We have all necessary landscape designer licenses for our area, and we carry insurance for all of our design projects.

We will introduce you to a vetted landscape contractor that will carry his own insurance for the construction portion of your project. Landscape contractors should always be licensed, bonded and insured and carry current workman's comp for their employees. 

For larger or more complicated projects, our parent company, Julie Orr Design, can help! Please ask for a  consultation and quote.

What kind of landscaping do you do?

We can do all kinds of landscaping, but our specialty is in mixing non-native and native plants to make a landscape that meets your needs and fits the ecology of our area.
