Greenlife Nursery has served the landscaping needs of Central Texans for 30 years. Our forte is design and installation of residential projects within a 50 mile radius of Waco. Home landscape makeovers comprise 80% of our business, while newly constructed homes garner 10%, with commercial work adding the last 10%. Our projects range from $2500 to $100,000.
Greenlife offers FREE consultation and design. Our designer, Debby Boyd is a partner in the business. She likes to incorporate stone work, pottery, and water features, as well as trees, shrubs, perennial ﬂowers and groundcover into your project, as appropriate. On some larger projects, our clients prefer us to install one section at a time, based on their budgetary priorities.
As a rule of thumb, count on spending 5% to 10% of your home’s value on landscaping. So much depends on how elaborate the design, the amount of hardscape required and your desire for “complete instant gratification”.
1. $300,000 home x 10% = $30,000
This is appropriate for a premium design on a one acre lot.
2. $300,000 home x 5% = $15,000
This is appropriate for a Very nice design on your one/half acre lot.
3. $300,000 home x 1% = $ 3,000
This will get you buy in a zero lot line development, front yard only.
These are just hypotheticals. The final dollar amount always depends on 2 things:
1. YOUR budget and desires for the landscape project.
2. The size and scope of YOUR project
