What types of service does Tunzi & Sons Landscaping offer?
Tunzi & Sons Landscaping offers full landscape design and installation services. We design everything from landscapes on new construction sites to renovations for existing landscapes. Whether your project is a complete landscape makeover or an improvement of a small section of your yard or garden, our designs ensure that the finished product is beautiful, functional, and expresses your personality. Our installation crews are driven by quality. We do not compromise on our materials or our methods. We can deliver patios, walkways, driveways, retaining walls, water features, landscapes, outdoor kitchens, fire features and whatever makes your outdoor living space unique and special.
If I only have a small project, will Tunzi & Sons Landscaping still have to draw up a design?
Not all projects require complex formal drawings. For smaller projects such as replacing a walkway with new material or building a retaining wall, we provide you with a free estimate by our trained professionals.
What should I expect from my first meeting with Tunzi & Sons Landscaping?
The discovery phase of a design is where we help you articulate your vision, and offer you inspiration, advice, and options. We will discuss the scale of the project, determine whether it requires a design plan, inspire you with photographs of similar projects we have planned and executed, as well as provide you with literature describing various options for plant materials or other products such as stone.
When should I expect Tunzi & Sons Landscaping to follow up with me after our initial meeting?
If a landscape design drawing is required, we will schedule a second meeting within two weeks, at which time we will present and discuss the proposal package, which includes copies of the plan as well as details about all aspects of the project. If your project does not require a design drawing, you will receive a Tunzi & Sons Landscaping Proposal Package in the mail within 7-10 days of the initial meeting.
What’s in a Tunzi & Sons Landscaping Proposal Package?
The Proposal Package contains a detailed estimate for your project, a list of references and a copy of Tunzi & Sons Landscaping terms and conditions, which details the various warranties on products we typically use.
When will my work be completed? Begin?
Our policy is to schedule projects based on receipt of a deposit. We do our best to schedule start dates within 4-6 weeks of receiving a deposit. However, during our busy season (typically in the spring), it may take 6-8 weeks to put your project on the calendar. Once we receive your deposit, we will notify you of your tentative start date.
How much maintenance effort should I expect to put into my new landscape?
Maintenance varies for every project. New plantings, seed, or sod require a high degree of maintenance until they are established. To help you in this effort, we will provide you with a detailed watering plan relevant for your specific needs. There is very little maintenance required for hardscape (e.g. deck, walkway) installations.
May I contact Tunzi & Sons Landscaping after my project is complete?
Please feel free to call our offices (708) 258-0900 whenever you have a question about any aspect of your new landscape. It is especially important to call if you notice that any of your plant material, seed, or sod is not thriving. We may be able to modify your watering plan to ensure their viability.
What type of payment methods does Tunzi & Sons Landscaping offer?
We accept checks, Visa, and MasterCard. Financing plans are also available.
