Landscape Design Questionnaire

Thank you for choosing Sterling Design & Landscape Resources
Thank you for filling out this survey. At the end of this form, please attach a copy of the plot plan survey of your property, if you have one. This will greatly speed up the initial consultation, and provide increased accuracy in the design. If you do not have one readily available, you can email it to us later at or fax it to us at (281) 933-5197.

Please read the following description of our services:

Our fees are based on the scope of work to be performed.  We will provide you with a simple field sketch or rough draft to start off with.  Once approved, we can develop that sketch into a scaled CAD drawing with details of the existing construction and other landscape issues. 

The design appointment can take between 2 ½ to 4 hours for an average size yard. Both front and back yards can take 3 ½ to 5 hours for a landscape design. Design fees include a $75.00 trip charge, and $65.00 per hour for consultation and field sketches. (Properties outside State Highway 99 or east of Interstate 45 are subject to $125 trip charge.)

We provide each of our customers with a hard copy of the design along with an estimate of labor costs and materials that will be needed to complete the project in its entirety.  We make recommendations on soil amendments that will help ensure the success of your lawn and garden. Also included with the design package is a final presentation at a retail nursery and a tour of suggested plant materials.              

After an initial site meeting with the designer and before field sketches begin, a deposit of $200.00 will be required.  This deposit includes the trip charge out and hourly fees for consultation.   The remaining balance will be due upon receipt of the final design at the presentation.  One design revision is provided.  Any other design revisions will be billed out at an hourly rate of $65.00 per hour.

A great landscape design begins with a good listener; one who knows the right questions to ask, one with a creative eye and emphasis on fiscal responsibility.  We utilize the seven principles of WaterWise and Earthkind Landscaping.  Sterling Design and Landscape Resources has an extensive network of experienced contractors to facilitate and implement your new landscape.  They specialize in drainage problems, irrigation installation and repair, fountains, ponds, custom pools, decks, outdoor kitchens, paving stones and night lighting.  References will be gladly provided upon request

If you have any questions, please call us at (281) 933-5197 or email us at

NOTE:  There are 24 questions on this survey.  The average time to complete is just over 10 minutes.  If you do not currently have the plot plan survey to upload on Question 24, please go ahead and submit the questionnaire.  You can email the plot plan survey to at a later time.  Thank you!
