When I meet with a perspective clients they ask me the same question almost every time. How would the contractor cost. The answer is really not that simple. It depends on what the design is and what materials are being used. It also depends on how much there is to demolish and remove. In most cases I tell perspective clients that if you have a small yard then you will pay anywhere in between 5-15 thousand. Medium size gardens can run you between 15-40 and large size gardens can cost even more.
In most cases if you tell your designer what you budget is then he or she can tell you based on that number roughly what you may or may not be able to do. Bear in mind that in some cases what ends up eating up the cost is not the materials but the labor involved. In this video I share with you more details on the cost of installation.
