Salt Lake City Landscape Design

Utah Landscape Design Services and Construction Management

APLD Certified Landscape Design Professional

We offer both residential and commercial Utah landscape design services in Salt Lake City, North Salt Lake and Ogden, and the rest of Utah.

My name is Rick Laughlin, APLD, and I design landscapes, do
construction management and set you up with one of five(5) 
contractors.  You can do the work yourself or I line you up with
a contractor who is licensed and insured, and install most of 
my designs.
Been in business for 24 years and am very experienced with
water wise plants and the latest in all types of design.  My services
also include Petscaping and Sustainability.
I have traveled extensively across the United States, England, France, Italy,
Ireland, Costa Rica and Mexico.

If you:
-Have a need to improve your landscape
-Willing to work with a designer
-You are open to new ideas and plants
-Willing to convert most of your irrigation to drip
-Willing to go mostly water wise
-It is colorful and lush
-Have discretionary income
My minimum for design is $1,950.00 and up.  I charge $150.00 for
a consultation, waived if you sign a design fee. I have three meetings,
the first is a consultation, then the conceptual and the final.  
You owe me nothing until I complete your conceptual design.
My construction management fee is 10% of the total job cost.  I will
make timely site visits to insure every thing is going as I planned.
I do not come out for free.
I work in Vectorworks 2017 and all of your landscape appears in 3D

“I’ve known Rick for several years now: both as a fellow designer and member of the APLD and as a friend. I have tremendous admiration for the attention to detail that Rick puts into all his projects and his love of plants. “ ~ Sally Court
