Get Started

With Planscaper®, we can take some of the guesswork out of your project. You gather information about your yard and tell us about your garden dreams. We come up with a planting plan and plant list. It’s free when you purchase a gift card, good towards plants for your project! Just fill out the packet and set up a time to meet with a designer at any of our garden centers.

Just follow these steps to get started:

  1. Download our easy-to-use Planscaper® kit to help you gather information about your space.
  2. Take measurements and photos of your space. Then use the graph paper from the kit to sketch the layout of your space.
  3. Next, call ahead or stop by to make an appointment with one of our landscape designers.
  4. When you come in for your appointment, you will go over all your ideas and materials with your designer and discuss all the many possibilities for your space!  This takes about 30 minutes.  This is when you’ll purchase the Planscaper gift card.
  5. After the meeting, the designer will plan and sketch out a fully-realized blueprint for your yard!
  6. Then, all you have to do is purchase the materials with your Planscaper® gift card and follow the design map. It’s as easy as paint-by-numbers!

When you come to the nursery, our expert garden staff is always available to help you pick out plants for your design and can even deliver your plants for you! We also offer a tree planting service for those larger, awkward items.

When you are ready to meet with your designer, here’s a quick checklist of everything you’ll need to bring:

  • Completed Planscaper kit that includes the questionnaire and sketch of the area you want designed
  • Photographs from different angles (printed out or e-mailed to your designer ahead of time)
  • Optional: Inspiration like books, magazine clippings or photos of gardens in your neighborhood that catch your eye.

Your Planscaper® gift card can be used at any of our four garden center sand does not have an expiration date. However, we know you are eager to get started! So go ahead. Get dirty! But first, start with a plan from Planscaper®.
