Please call or email a request for a landscape estimate.  Our phone number is 608-526-9780 or feel free to email at  We prefer to meet on weekdays if possible.


Your appointment will be with one of our Landscape Designers.  At the initial meeting you will discuss your needs and a determination will be made if an estimate, sketch or landscape design is required.  At that time the Designer will explain any design or planning fees.


Once you and the Designer have agreed on a preliminary design, it will be time to focus on the details of your project.  Plant ideas, landscape bed layout, hardscape materials are examples.  Questions will be asked and answered.  New ideas may arise and/or previous ideas revised.  In the end you will have a detailed installation plan, timeline, and contract with an associated payment schedule.


When we have received a signed contract and down payment you will be placed, in turn, on our schedule; similar to getting a number at a deli.  During peak season it can take up to 12 weeks from contract signing to installation; that’s why many clients sign a contract while the installation plan is still being “tweaked.”

Final payment is due upon completion.  Longer term projects may require progress payments.


Prior to the start a Project Manager will be assigned to your construction installation.  The Project Manager or your Designer will contact you with an updated schedule.  Sometimes projects are delayed by uncontrollable circumstances.  However, we do our best to keep you informed and minimize surprises.  River City Lawnscape will call Diggers Hotline to mark public utilities.  Personal electric, gas, water, irrigation systems, etc. lines are not marked.  Please inform us of any on your property.


Upon completion we will provide information on how to care for your newly installed landscape.  If you have any questions or concerns after your project is complete please call.
