Thrive Lot has been in the works for 7 years, but we officially launched in Fall 2019. Our Service Providers have been practicing for years, decades even. And our core team? We’re proud to be geographically distributed long before the remote work trend became a necessity. We’re not a one-trick peony.

Good question! It depends. Installations typically can range from $3,000 to $100,000 for complex landscape architecture or small farms.

  • A Thrive Lot installation can significantly increase the value of your property.

  • Optional design fees are approximately 15% of the project installation cost.

  • Cost per square foot varies widely from $1 to $40 per square foot.

  • Typical garden beds run ~$5 per square foot.

We offer customer financing at affordable rates, and can help with budget planning! You can even put your project on “layaway” and start building up a balance for your top priority.

Our service providers can work with your HOA to create a permaculture design that looks beautiful and one that fits within guidelines. We also know creative ways to deal with HOAs. Let us know how we can guide your conversations by chatting with us.

Our Service Providers all have the mastery of soil, plant, insect, wildlife, hydrology, and equipment knowledge. Our thorough vetting process ensures that Service Providers will show up to make proper site analysis and follow up with a comprehensive plan.

As you can imagine, their time is in high demand. So, think of your upfront deposit as an investment in both your time and theirs, providing you with a consistently valuable service.

Also, there’s no better time to ask an expert all your questions, in person, about edible landscaping, growing a food forest, and garden maintenance. We’re here to herb your enthusiasm.

This is not a do-it-yourself project. That’s right, no DIY here. We do all the dirt-y work—from design, installation and maintenance for you.

While our company is based remotely, the Thrive Lot team is split between the Smoky Mountains and the Rockies; boasting a friendly rivalry on who has the most productive plant growing zones.

Meanwhile, our Service Providers are spread across the U.S. We’ll be nationwide soon.
