Delivery (4)

Shipping and delivery of all materials for the Knibb Modular Garden are included in the square foot price. No additional fees will apply. We are currently only delivering the Knibb Modular Garden in the Southern California area. If you live outside that area, please contact us for pricing and options.

We are currently offering the Knibb Modular Garden in the Southern California area. However, we plan to expand to include the New York Tri-State region and then nationally over the next year. If you have a location in mind, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your site.

The standard Knibb Modular Garden is designed for a flat area that has already been cleared and has soil in place. If your garden area requires removal of any existing materials, that should be done prior to your Knibb Modular Garden arriving. We can provide you with assistance with the material removal as well.

Typically, it will take about 6 weeks from the time you order your garden for it to arrive. Once you have placed your order, we will arrange a delivery and installation time that works best for you.

Design (1)

Part of the cost savings of the Knibb Modular Garden is that you are not paying the typical design fee of a landscape architect. We have pre-designed a series of design options for many of the typical urban lot configurations. When you place your order, you will be able to select the layout that works best for you.

General (5)

The Knibb Modular Garden was designed for urban infill lots, so the materials and pricing we provide works best in an area of 750 to 2,000 square feet. If your area is smaller or larger, we can provide you with alternative design and pricing options.

From the time we receive your site photos, square footage, and deposit, your garden can be installed within 6 weeks. We will setup a delivery and installation time upon purchase, and then check back with you once the materials have been ordered to confirm your delivery.

We have selected plant materials that are drought tolerant, requiring minimal water to maintain. All plants are perennials, so with proper care, you should not need to tear out and replace any of the materials. The hardscape surface used in the Knibb Modular Garden is permeable, resulting in little to no water run-off. We have also designed the gardens with a water efficient irrigation system – drip systems that use only the amount of water necessary, with no run-off or over spray.

We have a show garden at 1524 Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. It’s open Wednesday through Sunday, 12pm to 5pm and Monday and Tuesday by appointment.

It’s so simple. The first step is providing us with photos of the area you would like landscaped along with the square footage. If you have a plan already, that’s great, but not necessary.  We will then work with you to design and build your garden and arrange delivery and installation within six weeks.

Installation (5)

The pricing for the Knibb Modular Garden assumes that you have a clear site with soil, ready for planting. If you have existing plant material or hardscape, we can handle the demolition for you at an additional cost.

The current Knibb Modular Garden is designed for a flat site. If you have a sloped site, please contact us for more information on pricing and feasibility.

Yes, self-installation is an option for the Knibb Modular Garden. We will provide you with an installation plan and complete instructions.

From the time we receive your site photos, square footage, and deposit, your garden can be installed within 6 weeks. We will setup a delivery and installation time upon purchase, and then check back with you once the materials have been ordered to confirm your delivery. The installation itself will take about one week depending on the size of your garden.

In the Southern California area, Knibb Modular can deliver and install your garden for a set per square foot price. If you are outside of that area, or prefer to install the garden yourself, we have a pricing option that does not include installation.

Irrigation (2)

If you already have a sprinkler system installed that you would like to convert to a drip irrigation system, we can provide you with the necessary materials and instructions to do the conversion. If you already have a drip irrigation system in the location where you are installing your Knibb Modular Garden, let us know that when ordering, and we can design that into the plan.

The Knibb Modular Garden comes with a complete drip irrigation system. Drip is a water-saving irrigation method made up of a tubing system that lies above ground and delivers water directly to the plant’s root zone. We also offer additional options for irrigation, such as, timers and weather stations. Please contact us for more information.

Maintenance (1)

One of the best features of the Knibb Modular Garden is its minimal maintenance needs. We install the irrigation for the plants, and all the materials are renewable, so with proper care no re-planting is required. When you receive your Knibb Modular Garden, we will also include maintenance instructions, and are happy to setup an annual check-up visit to make sure it stays looking great.

Material (3)

We have selected plant materials that are drought tolerant, requiring minimal water to maintain. All plants are perennials, so with proper care, you should not need to tear out and replace any of the materials. The hardscape surface used in the Knibb Modular Garden is permeable, resulting in little to no water run-off. We have also designed the gardens with a water efficient irrigation system – drip systems that use only the amount of water necessary, with no run-off or over spray.

The Knibb Modular Garden was crafted to be a sustainable, low maintenance, affordable landscape option. With over 20 years of landscape experience, Knibb Design has selected a material palette that we are confident will look great, be gentle on our environment, require minimal maintenance, and all at a much lower cost than typical landscape solutions.

The Knibb Modular Garden comes complete with all necessary materials to create and enjoy a beautiful garden.  We have partnered with local suppliers to ensure we receive the best pricing available and that the quality of plant materials is carefully controlled for optimal growth and hardiness. We also offer additional options within the Knibb Modular Garden line, such as living walls and furniture, to allow you to further customize your garden if you wish.

Pricing (2)

The price per square foot includes the design of your garden, all materials (hardscape, plants, and irrigation), and complete installation (if you choose that option).

The Knibb Modular Garden is priced by the square foot, making it uniquely affordable for commercial and residential clients. Prices begin at $12 a square foot for plant, hardscape and irrigation materials, and range from $14 - $16 a square foot for gardens completely installed.
