Longview Theater stage before I painted it as the Secret Garden... Spring 2013

Stageworks Northwest – Set Design “The Secret Garden” Part 1

Longview Theater, Longview, Washington – Feb or April 2013

Here is the first stages of the set as walls and set peices were getting errected. Once all that was done I had the job of making it work as a set that only used brief set piece changes to create a different scene. We have no curtain so some challenges had to be solved with design and creative painting techniques!

Next comes the planning stages…

and then the painting stages…

and then the re-painting stages…

Now the walls look 3D, baby! Yeah! The magic of painting – it never fails to wow me!

And then…

I just keep painting…

and more painting….

I would be completely lost without my level. LOST.

P.S. I did get some of these folks to paint, too! It’s not just my set – it’s OUR set, I don’t care if you’re an actor! Now come help me!!

Okay Grace,  what part of the set is THIS supposed to be...? Consulting in action The manor walls,  after initial brick lines are painted. Now the walls look 3D,  baby! Yeah! The magic of painting - it never fails to wow me! blocking in the underpainitng on the interior portion of the manor.

Sorry Raj, not a reasonable estimate of time

As TheShrubber mentioned, the amount of time that you lined out is not sufficient.
Good solid seasoned garden design consultation is a 'process'.
I don't mean that it is rocket science, but there are principles, color theory, scale , proportion, site analysis, soils science, horticulture and more that a professional will bring to the table for you.
You may find someone to do this job within your budget but I doubt you will get value out of the consultation .
Best bet in this situation is to hire someone who works in a nursery who offers simple garden consultation
