When will all the plantings reach maturity?
Perennials and Shrubs should be mature in three to five years. Trees vary; they can still grow for fifteen or more years depending on the type. Most trees mature in five to ten years.
Why did my plant die?
Our unpredictable weather takes a toll on Plants and Shrubs. Other variables factor into longevity, such as soil condition and type, too much water or lack of water, location and the zone the planting is installed in. Zone 4A to Zone 3B is the Calgary Zone (changed in 2016) and Edmonton is Zone 3B.
I want a low maintenance yard. What can I do to achieve this?
I would recommend installing Turf, Hardscaping such as gravel or rock with filter fabric below and plantings that are drought resistant and decking with a vinyl cover or composite decking, basically something you do not need to stain.
How long will my design take?
Typically we aim to have your design complete within two weeks. Significant revisions may extend this timeframe.
How much are designs?
Please contact us directly for pricing.
Do I get a discount at a nursery going with a Consultant?
Yes, we will get you the Wholesale rate for Trees, Shrubs, Perennials and Sod. Feel free to deal with the Nursery directly and tell them you went through Backyards & More. The Contractor will also be able to get your Wholesale pricing on gravel, lumber and other materials.
What do I need to start a design? Is there a fee?
Our first meeting is always free. If this is something you would be interested in, send us your RPR (Lot Plan). We will need a deposit to secure the Landscape Design Concept Fee before we begin, usually this would be added to the deck build deposit. We will use our tracking system and deduct it off from the remaining balance.
Do I get digital files and hard copies when the project is complete?
And what happens with coordination with the Contractor? Yes after payment is received you get your PDF(s) and 11×17 drawings released over to you. We can send them over to the Contractor (if needed). Usually we release the drawings to the client and they contact the Contractor directly. Coordination with the Contractor switches over after the job is complete.
If I get a landscape design with We Build Group. Do I have to go with them for installation?
No, it would be nice. However, the client is not bound by contract to use our team. The advantage is we are a one-stop shop for all your landscaping and deck needs.
