Hattoy’s Landscaping Process

Start Your Project with a Free Consultation at Hattoy’s

Start with a phone call or a visit to our nursery to have a conversation with one of our qualified staff members about your potential project. During this conversation we will ask questions about what you are looking to do or would like to have done by our crews. You may decide to ‘Do it Yourself’ or have Hattoy’s team of professional landscapers & gardeners do the work for you.

Do it Yourself Project Help

If you are interested in Do it Yourself project service, please schedule a time to meet with a qualified staff member at our store. We want to give you our undivided attention, so it’s best to plan appropriately with the staff member who will be helping you. This service is free of charge and is complimentary through our staff that works at the nursery. This service works well for small projects that you may want to do yourself but you just needs some guidance to get you started.

Let the Pros at Hattoy’s do the Work!

Hire the experienced team at Hattoy’s for projects that may be a little more in-depth and require a site visit or professional design, maintenance, landscaping, hardscaping or construction. Leading the team is Ethan Hattoy, the head of Design & Construction for Hattoy’s Landscaping.

Book a Professional Consultation

Call or Email to set an appointment to meet with Ethan at your property or at our nursery to discuss your goals, ask questions, get ideas, and figure out where you want your project to go. Ethan can show you many pictures from our design portfolio to help set expectations and establish a
project plan, budget, etc.

Transparent Pricing

Once the project plan is determined, Ethan will set a price for the design and consultation work that will be involved. Keep in mind, included in this price will be the time spent during consultations, phone calls, emails, travel time, design time, developing estimates, and change orders. Sometimes there can be just as much time spent planning a project as there can be executing one with a crew of several people. Ethan will evaluate this how long this will take him, based off of the many projects he has done, so you will get a set price for the design/consultation work.

If you choose to have our landscaping division do the project, you will not pay for the design (as it was already figured into the labor and installation part of the estimate). You will instead pay a deposit towards the landscaping job, and scheduling the job to be completed will be discussed next.

Change Orders

You can change your mind! We realize there may be some changes made along the way and potentially follow up appointments needed.

If you need more time to think about the project once everything is finalized, you will only be charged for the design. If you decide after to move forward with the project, that design fee will go towards your deposit.

Designer Profile: Ethan is the oldest son of our owners, Mark and Denise. He has been around our nursery since he could walk, and has worked with his family his entire life. He always enjoyed drawing and painting at a young age, and it has now translated into his role in our business. Ethan draws designs of landscapes while giving people advice through his expertise in plant knowledge. After studying business at Bentley University for one year, he decided to come back home so he could immerse himself in the family business. He transferred to the University of Rhode Island, working full time and studying plants to increase his knowledge more. He took classes in landscape architecture, design, and plant sciences. Ethan graduated with a degree in Environmental Horticulture and Turfgrass Management, and now runs the design and construction division of our company.
