How it Works

Our delightful, all-online process begins with a vision for your yard created by our award-winning design team.

Step 1

Share, plan, and budget

Without ever stepping foot on your property we’ll map and measure your outdoor spaces using your photo and video, and deliver your design in photorealistic 3D, leaving nothing to the imagination.

Step 2

Review, collaborate, and iterate

Design requires collaboration. That’s why we built the Yardzen Feedback Studio. This is where you’ll share your thoughts, comments and questions on your design and hear from your team. Video call easier? We make it easy to schedule.

Step 3

Finalize design

We personalize every design decision down to the details, factoring your unique taste, space, budget and how you want your yard to function. The end result: a yard everyone in your family will love.

Installing Your Project with the Yardzen Pro Network

Every design includes complimentary contractor matching and build support to help bring your dream yard to life. The Yardzen Pro Network is nationwide group of experienced, appropriately licensed, and insured local landscape contractors.


Step 1

Contractor matching and intro

After Final Deliverables

We’ll match you with a Yardzen-vetted landscape contractor from our Pro Network that is local to you and ready to build. Our Pros are experienced, highly-rated, appropriately licensed, and insured. Our build support team will continue to check in with you during your yard renovation to make sure everything is going smoothly.

Step 2

Site walk and adjustments

After Introduction

You’ll complete a site walk with your contractor that will help them create a specific project estimate. You and your contractor will make “in-the-field” decisions. It’s normal to deviate from your original design slightly, and our team is happy to make design adjustments based on these decisions.

Step 3

Bid review and project support


Our build support team is there for you throughout your renovation—until its completion! We can answer questions as they come up and review any bids, estimates, or suggestions made by the contractor. We also love when clients share photos of the yard coming to life!
