How our online process works

Some people love that we are now offering the same customized design and consultation services at much lower prices. By moving everything online we are able to reduce our operating costs -- our past fuel bills were dizzying!!! Some people, however, are unsure how it all works. It's so simple, really. All we need is a little information, some photos, your survey or plat plan, and the fee to get started. When we have finished your project, we mail and/or email the final product, and then set an appointment to review by phone. More specifically:
  1. New client questionnaire -- available as a word document on our blog near the bottom-right of the homepage. Download, complete, save and return as an attachment by email.
  2. Upload photos to snapfish.com and invite us to view your photos -- send the link to nativedaveinc@gmail.com. We will need approximately 10-15 photos of the front yard or 15-20 of the back, or a combined 25-35 of the entire property. Remember, you and your camera are our 'eyes.'
  3. Survey or plat plan -- scan and save as jpeg or pdf. Make sure your image is legible, especially the scale and directional information. Send by email.
  4. Fee -- PayPal is best. I will send an invoice requesting funds after you decide which service suits you best. If you prefer to mail a check, use the address at the top of this page (15521 Palmira Ave Unit A Corpus Christi 78418).

Upon receipt of all of the above we will get started. Turnaround times vary according to season (spring is super busy, naturally), but on average we can get your design back to you within 7-10 days. Sketches take about 4-7 days. As mentioned above, we will send your finished product by mail and email. Next, we will request a meeting by phone. (We are also toying with the idea of video calls via Skype, so let us know if you prefer to 'see' us while discussing your product.) During the meeting David will take you through all of the elements of your design or sketch. He will direct you to photos of the plants, either ours or another website. This will help to bring your plan to life! Of course, he will also allow plenty of time for you to ask questions.

It's super simple. Still not sure? Feel free to drop us an email with your questions, etc. We are always happy to help!
