Outdoor Living Space Design

Are you looking for the following?

• Creating a new look for your fronPoppyStepBacktyard, back yard or your whole property.

• Adding new plant material and specific placement of those plants.

• Creating outdoor rooms by incorporating firepits, patios, pathways, pergolas, etc.

• Edits to an existing landscape


Our Design Fee includes:

  • –  1 hour consultation on site with our designer
  • –  A complete site analysis of the proposed area (photos, measurements & notes will be taken of the the site, including light and water requirements)
  • –  A design that is to scale, computer generated, completely labeled and hand-colored (bird’s eye view of your landscape)
  • –  A plant/hardscape photo presentation (to help you visualize the new additions to your space)
  • –  A detailed estimate that can be phased out to meet your budget or priorities
  • –  One plan revision

A second meeting, design presentation/quote review, will then be scheduled where we will go over all of the plan details, plant presentation and detailed quote.

Contact our office by phone (515) 996-8888 or by email for more information.

“Over the past two years, I’ve completed two projects with Tara at Plant Life Designs.  I was looking for something unique to my taste and to complement my house.  At my first meeting, Tara immediately understood my vision and brought back a plan that exceeded my expectations.  When it came time to install, she completed both projects on time and on budget.”  – Matt, Ankeny
