Dogwood Designs is based in the Twin Cities and primarily serves the Twin Cities Metro area. We happily design and consult on projects across the entire state of Minnesota as well as Wisconsin.


Hourly consultations

Most Dogwood Designs projects start with an initial hourly consultation on your site. Not sure where to start your landscaping project? Not sure what to do? Maybe you have some problem areas that could use professional advice. Or you just have general site specific questions you want a trained eye to look at. A lot of homeowners are wanting to do some work on their proprieties themselves. An hourly consultation puts our designer on your site to provide you with all the answers to your landscaping questions. An hourly consultation will help save you time, trouble, and money as you move forward with your landscape project.

Rates start at $125 per hour for the first hour. Additional fees may apply based on distance to site.


Dogwood Designs offers full and partial site designs. Anything from a new front entrance area, to the entertaining space you have always dreamed of, or a full site redo. All designs are large format, scaled designs. Whether you install the project yourself, or you have a professional crew do the install, all designs will serve as a guide to ensure the best possible results. Dogwood Designs standard design package includes: scaled large format design, complete plant list with materials suggestions, and images showing all plants and materials.

Rates are based on scope and scale of the design. Designs start at $350.

Comprehensive site assessments

Got a larger site that needs a phased in approach? Dogwood Designs conducts comprehensive site assessments for larger sites to give property owners a long term plan for the site. A comprehensive site assessment is a written report providing a professional opinion and guidance for the property. Comprehensive site assessments provide the property owner/manager/ownership group with a long term maintenance plan for site. These reports cover everything landscape related. That includes discussing problems areas and providing solutions, preventative maintenance solutions, ways to decrease long term maintenance, increase curb appeal, and much more. As the owner or manager of a larger property, this is exactly what your property needs.

Rates are based on scope and scale of the site.
