The Full project
We had no idea where to start and were so excited to discover Tilly! Our designer was great to work with and really listened to what we wanted. I honestly never imagined we could love our yard as much as we do now.View More Reviews

The first few steps are up to you, but once the designer has what they need, design packages are delivered within 2-3 weeks with an additional week added for revisions. Timelines may be a bit extended during holidays or our busy season.
A property survey is a document often included in your closing documents upon the purchase of your home. It is a scaled outline of property lines as well as the footprint of your home and any other major structures. If your property is over 1 acre we require a property survey for design. If it is under an acre we don't require one, but strongly encourage it as our plans are scaled to your property. If previous work has been done on your house there is a good chance the local building department will have a copy.
Tilly's landscape designers have been hand selected and trained in our new online approach to landscape design. We have a team of extremely talented landscape architects, designers and horticulturalists weighing in on each design. Our design team is based throughout the US with expertise in all different zones.
A friendly conversation! Your landscape designer will ask about you, your home, your personal style, the use of your indoor and outdoor spaces, and what you want to achieve with your project. Whenever possible, we prefer to use video chat where you walk us around your yard.
One round of revisions is included in each design package within 45 days of receiving your initial plan. If additional changes are needed they can be done for a fee, which will depend on the scope of work required. Note that needing a second round of revisions is extremely rare!
