Landscape Design Consultation

Inspired Landscape Design Consultant

Beyond Wild Flowers provides landscape design consultation and installation that transforms your space to fit your lifestyle while adding natural wonder to your landscape. With inspiration from Mother Nature, Dan will provide landscape design ideas that create a serene space in harmony with the climate and environment.

The ways you want to live in and view the space direct Dan’s designs. He recognizes that this will be your landscape and he wants to know how you will use it. He calls this the “Eye of the Beholder vs. the Eye of the Creator.” Your movement in and through the landscape and the functions that are important to you guide Dan as a landscape designer. He will create a flow through the space that is rewarded with a sense of discovery. He uses native, xeric and climate-appropriate plants that provide a variety of textures, colors and interest over the longest season possible.

Initial consultations are $150 (includes NM 7% tax). At this meeting a fee structure and scope of work will be discussed if you’d like to engage Dan’s services.

Landscape Installation

As landscape design consultants, we work with a variety of landscape contractors for a seamless process from design to completed installation. We can project manage your preferred contractor as well. Designs evolve with your input during the design and installation phases and your budget is considered in selecting materials. Patios, walkways, berms, boulders, dry stream beds, water features as well as irrigation, walls and fences are all possible with our landscape construction services.

Landscape Design Consultation for Intimate Spaces

Many Taos properties have small courtyards. This elevates the need for using plant material that will perform for a long season. It also calls for careful use of space to maintain flow and functionality while enhancing unfolding visual discovery. When doing a landscape design consultation with you, Dan works to integrate the elements and plants you like to his designs. And he’ll introduce you to myriad ideas (like custom-designed patio pots) that will assure the success of your landscape installation.
