Why Tilly?

Why do I need a landscape design?

If you want to make real changes to your property, then partnering with a professional will help ensure you put the right plants in the right places. There are so many ways a DIY project can go wrong, that we recommend skipping the headache and working with a trusted expert.

What makes Tilly different?

Tilly is all about making professional landscape design more accessible to homeowners. Our online process allows you to work on your own timeline, and our services come at a fraction of the cost of your local landscape designer, allowing you to access the same design talent for less!

How do I get my design into the ground?

Depending on your location, Tilly can either install your landscape design as an additional service, or provide a detailed materials list and planting instructions for your local contractor. We believe that removing the guesswork is the best path to a successful result and a landscape you’ll love.

We have found the Tilly process to be most successful on properties less than an acre.

A major part of remote design is understanding a property’s existing conditions and limitations. To do this we generally use the primary structure (usually the house) as the main point of reference. The greater distances are from from the house the less successful we are at understanding your property. No matter what the size of your property, the more information you can provide us, the better. Don’t be shy with the pictures! And please send along any and all architectural or property plan documents you can.
