The first step in getting started on your landscaping project is to make an appointment with one of our Landscape Designers. During the initial consultation, the Designer will come to your home, discuss your ideas and develop the project goals. You’ll discuss your budget and tell us whether you want Oakridge to install the landscaping or if this is a do-it-yourself project.

Prior to drafting a design plan, we require a $150 deposit. The deposit for calls 50 miles away or more increases to $250 dollars (excluding the Lake Madison area). Of this deposit, $100 dollars is rebated to the customer through the purchase of trees, shrubs and perennials for the landscape project (valid for one year). Should the project be abandoned, postponed or canceled at any time, the $150 dollar deposit shall also be forfeited.

Projects generally range from $2,500 dollars and up. The landscaping plan remains property of Oakridge Nursery until $500 dollars is spent at the nursery towards the landscaping project or paid for the release of the design.

A do-it-yourself project fee includes one trip by the designer to lay our lines, deliver edging or plants. For any additional trips we charge $50 dollars per hour. Standard delivery fees apply to any deliveries using Oakridge vehicles.


We only employ the finest graduate landscape designers with several years of experience in the landscape design field. All of our designers are South Dakota Certified Nurserymen and have completed certification in retaining wall installation.
