Consultations and Workshops

One Hour Design Consultation


“A brushstroke can bring a garden concept to life with colour”.  Meredyth Hilton, Design Department

Clients, in a one hour process, work directly with designer Meredyth Hilton.  During this design consultation they will see their landscape space come to life in a custom rendering along with planting layout. Whether the clients love hyacinths, hostas or hydrangeas, it will be their own concept.  The process utilizes stories and pictures of their home and their personal vision of how the space will be used. Meredyth Hilton’s professional gardening expertise and artistic talents guide the process. The result? A beautifully rendered personal ‘snapshot’ of their proposed landscape space, and a planting layout. which the clients will then take home and use to create their own garden.


  • Clients will send photos, measurements and fill out a questionnaire before the consultation.

  • The design process will be a 1 hour meeting with Meredyth Hilton at the Design Department store.

  • Clients will leave with a custom drawing of their garden complete with instructions on planting and a list of plants/materials they will need to execute the design.

Available Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 6pm, $250 + HST
