Design

I offer consultations for sustainable & regenerative projects. My consultations consist of deeply detailed observation & follow-up recommendations. For questions about consultations & design, including rates & availability, contact Benjamin Weiss at susq.pc@gmail.com.

Typical rates:

  • Initial consultation: $100/hour (normally takes 1-2 hours)
  • Design work: $40/hour + travel expenses
  • Implementation work: $25/hour + travel expenses
These rates are negotiable. The processI follow for this kind of work is as follows:
  • I start with a consultation. This a a quick review of the site, projects, goals, hopes etc…
  • If we agree that we’d like to work together on a project,  design work is next. This is essentially project planning.
  • If you want help implementing the design on your property, I can be hired for this & can contract some colleagues to help as well.
