The below cost options were developed for the Landscape Design Templates to provide a ballpark range of the cost to install the designs. The true cost to install the design is dependent upon many factors including fluctuations in the cost and availability of labor and materials. The cost opinions are not cost estimates or engineered cost estimates. Consult with your installation or design professional for an actual cost estimate.
Each plan has two cost opinions – one for the full plan as drawn and one for the “base plan” with all driveways and garden pathway paving options removed. An Excel worksheet is available for you to adjust the cost option to your yard.
Be sure to visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for answer to common questions about the Landscape Design Templates, including ideas to reduce the cost of the initial installation.
Note: The cost per square foot for each plan is not an accurate way to compare the cost between plans. Each plan is designed to a specific lot size. Templates designed for larger lots will always have a lower cost per square foot than templates designed for smaller lots. This is due to the fixed costs associated with irrigation components that all plans include which are spread out over a larger area.
When a plan designed for a smaller lot is enlarged, typically the cost per square foot will decrease. Conversely, when a plan designed for a larger lot is scaled down for a smaller lot, the cost per square foot will typically increase.
