We Design, You Install

There is that one spot in your yard that just isn’t right. Maybe the plants are tired, worn-out, just not looking right. Perhaps there are no plants at all and you’ve been thinking it would look nice to have some. But where do you start?

There is that one spot in your yard that just isn’t right. Maybe the plants are tired, worn-out, just not looking right. Perhaps there are no plants at all and you’ve been thinking it would look nice to have some. But where do you start? 

How do you plan? What do you plant? Let us help.

Our Snapshot Gardening design program is the answer you’ve been looking for! Basically, we provide a customized design and you install the plants whenever is convenient for you. I will add that we are rapidly approaching the best season to plant trees and shrubs – FALL! Cooler high temperatures and adequate rainfall assist newly planted trees and shrubs in establishing themselves in the landscape. By summer of the following year these new plants have been in the ground 7 or more months and can mostly fend for themselves. This means less work for you!

How can you get started? 

There is more than one way! You can either visit our store to pick up a questionnaire, or visit the Snapshot Landscape Design page. On this page, you can either download a questionnaire to print and fill out, OR, you can sign-up and answer questions online. If you fill out the questionnaire, please drop-off at our store.

In addition to filling-out the questionnaire or signing-up online, provide our landscape designers with many images, measurements, and plant preferences. The more information you can provide the better. Using the information you provide, we’ll create a design that will show you what, where, and how many plants to install.

The Snapshot Gardening design program costs all of $50. In return, you’ll receive a plan tailored to your landscape, a $30 White Oak Gardens gift card, and we hope more than a little inspiration (no charge for the inspiration).
