Easy & Affordable Landscape Design with Shrubhub
July 17, 2020
If you scroll through our blog, you will notice that it is heavily dominated by guest speaker recaps. These guest speakers are people we have invited to present during our weekly “Realtor Roundtable” meetings, which we host for a group of fellow top producing mid-peninsula agents. Often times these guests will be startup founders who are selling some product or service that aims to innovate some facet of the real estate industry in one way or another. This was was the case with our most recent speaker, Scott Hutcheon, an environmental entrepreneur who founded the online landscape design platform, Shrubhub. And while we have heard from many startups over the years, rarely do we get as excited to try them out as we are with Shrubhub.
In a nutshell, Shrubhub provides affordable landscape design to the everyman. They have an online platform where you can set your budget, pick your favorite styles, and collaborate with one of their designers to put together a conceptual rendering of your yard. Once you’ve finalized your design, you can order the plants directly through Shrubhub, and they will have the plants and materials delivered straight to your doorstep. They will connect you with installation providers if needed as well.
This is a service that we seeing being VERY useful for our clients (and ourselves), if it works as advertised. For homeowners looking to give their yard a makeover, Shrubhub provides an affordable way to bring in the help of a professional who can help you turn your tastes and preferences into a beautifully thought out home landscape. Best of all, their online platform is quarantine friendly. You can collaborate with their designers on your yard from the comfort of your couch. And for people in the home building/renovation scene, this could be a great budget-friendly option to explore for professional quality landscape design at your projects.
As many of you know, in addition to being a real estate brokerage that represents buyers and sellers, RealSmart also runs an investment fund where we buy, flip and sell property. This gives us the perfect opportunity to try out Shrubhub’s sevices, and when we do, we will be sure to update our blog detailing our experience. Hopefully this will give you a better idea of just how well Shrubhub’s services could work for you. Stay tuned!
