Design on the Fly


Affordable • Beautiful • Professional

This service is ideal for customers looking for professional assistance with a small area of their landscape, such as a perennial garden, curb appeal or a privacy screen.

What is Design on the Fly?

Design on the Fly is for customers with budgets of $1000-$5000 for their professional landscape design project, which is focused on one area of your landscape up to about 500 square feet.

Here's how it works:

  • Sign up below for the service that best fits your needs and fill out the form that is sent to you as soon as the online purchase is complete.
  • Choose an area of your landscape, under 500 square feet that needs professional help
  • Meet with one of our professional designers to discuss your goals
  • We will sketch a design for you to keep and provide a suggested plant list
  • The Barn will also provide a quote for the plants and installation - when you are ready and within your budget.
  • If your needs do not fit these parameters, please call us at 847-658-3883 ext 17 to discuss your options.

Take it from a happy Design on the Fly customer:
" I am very pleased with my new landscaping. I’ve had many compliments, and my friends and family are stunned when they see the before and after photos. Heather Moister was wonderful to work with, and the crew that did the removal and planting was professional and conscientious. I highly recommend The Barn Nursery to anyone planning to update their landscaping."
