Hort and Soul Landscape Design is Landscape Design with Passion. H&S is owned and operated by freelance designer Nicole Jones, who is a 2004 graduate of Horticulture and Landscape Design at Michigan State University. I know, I know, you are thinking that Michigan plants are WAY different than Florida plants.You are absolutely correct! Transferring her knowledge and passion for all things horticulture, Nicole is also very knowledgable of Florida landscape plants. She has lived in Florida since 2006 and had several clients in Pinellas County since 2009.
H&S is not affiliated with any landscape installation companies. I work with homeowners and landscape contractors. The homeowner's best interest is the top priority; focusing on the form and function of the landscape to be designed. All designs are done by Nicole, using computer software to give you a good idea of what your yard could look like.
It all starts with an initial consultation to get an idea of your wants and needs. Measurements,pictures, and any other information about the area are collected. Mortgage surveys provided by the homeowner are helpful for the process. That information is used to create a 3D design that includes any and all plant material and hardscapes,etc. This design will be drawn accurately to scale and will include labels and quantities for all plant material. Also included are pictures of all plant material in the design. Nicole will come to you once again to present the design to you in 3D. You will also be given a CD with the plan,plant pictures, and some screenshots of the design in 3D. This design can be used to install as a DIY project or give the design to a landscape contractor to have them install.
Not only are the designs and service you receive from H&S going to be excellent, they are also reasonably priced for the homeowner/landscape contractor. Designs typically range from $250-$1000, depending on the size and scope of the project.
Being very professional, you can ALWAYS count on Nicole to be on time to all appointments and deadlines.
