Here are answers to some common questions about landscaping services. If you have a question that’s not listed here, please send us an email.
What should a client of WTG Development Corporation expect?
You should expect a consultative, solutions-oriented approach to your landscaping project. You should expect to work with people who are down-to-earth and easy to talk with. We love what we do, so we truly enjoy hearing about your goals, and sharing our knowledge and ideas on how to achieve them.

How much do landscape design services cost?
Projects vary in cost based upon the complexity of the plan and the materials needed to bring the plan to life. Our initial consultation and site assessment is free. We’ll visit your home, listen to your goals and ideas, and discuss possibilities for making the most of your property. This plan will include full-color sketches of recommended features, and if appropriate, plant selections. We will also provide detailed estimates for bringing the plan to completion. These professional design services are provided for a fee, but are usually free when you choose WTG Devt Corp to complete the project. If WTG is hired to complete some, or all of the proposed plan, the design fee is typically deducted from the total cost of the project.
Please contact us to discuss your needs, and to schedule an initial consultation.
How much should I spend on my landscaping?
Many landscapers will tell you a specific price you should spend on your landscaping based on calculating a percentage of your homes value. We do not buy into this formula as every home owners needs are different. For instance, there is nothing wrong with having a large yard of mainly sod and a few trees on a million peso property, if the homeowner likes this type of landscape. Conversely, there is nothing wrong with having a back yard landscaped entirely in stone in a 300,000 property. It all depends on the owners likes, and needs. Landscaping does effect the value of your home so whatever landscaping you choose for your yard, make sure it is installed properly.
How long will my landscaping take to complete?
Landscaping times vary for each landscape component and specific requirements.
Can we work within a certain budget?
Absolutely! If you have a budget in mind we will work to keep the project within this established budget and will make sure to choose materials that fit within your budget. Most homeowners want to stick within a certain budget and it is very important for WTG to have good communication with our clients.

We will replace one time, any plant that does not survive, provided that it has received proper care and has not been damaged.
We are not obligated to replace plants that fail to grow due to neglect, extreme weather conditions, such as drought or water restrictions.

Yes. Many of our customers want to take the hassle out of dealing with several contractors. Our team offers full landscaping services including pool installations, outdoor kitchens, plantings, patios and more. We would be happy to work one on one with you to create your vision.
Do you offer garden fertilization?
Yes. We offer fertilizer application but this is a separate landscaping service. If you would like to request a free estimate, please e-mail us.

Yes. Although cost might vary depending on the transport cost. It would be more economical if it would be done or delivered in quantities to save on transport and delivery costs.
