J Umlauf Design provides a custom range of landscape design services for clients. Jennifer Umlauf (that’s me:) evaluates the project and is the sole designer. I have worked in residential design/build for over twenty years and have a degree in Landscape Architecture from LSU.
Designs may range from small perennial gardens to master plans including hardscape elements. The landscape plans may be installed by the client, by a landscape company, or by a combination of the two. By working with a design service that is not attached to an installer, clients are free to explore a variety of concepts before selecting an installation method that is best for them. Designs are delivered with budget considerations in mind.
The client relationship typically begins via email or phone where I collect information regarding client needs. There is no charge for phone, email and/or text time. A half-hour to hour onsite consultation can be scheduled as step one. Clients are billed $100.00 per hour for consultation and design time in fifteen minute increments. An approximate estimation of time involved will be offered before work on detailed plans begins. Designs and related documents are delivered electronically or hand delivered for review.
