"Form follows function - that has been misunderstood.  Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union."

Need a certified Architect?

No problem. Our certified landscape architect can provide you with a beautiful design encompassing all your needs. Have the plan tailored just the way you like it or leave it to us to create the outdoor space of your dreams.  You can have the plan installed at once or we can recommend phases over the course of a few seasons.  

Benefits of a good design

A note on Site documentation

While we can do some level of site documentation, it may be of your benefit to get a professional survey of your property.  Some properties are more complex than others and could use the extra level of detail (e.g. large areas, locations of existing plant material, and multiple elevation changes). The higher level of detail provided by these surveys will lead to a more relevant design and help uncover some potential hidden costs.

  • When appropriate we provide geotechnical engineering and boring services for extensive, accurate  site analysis.

  • We often utilize engineers for load calculations, and larger walls that could pose a safety concern.


Good Planning is key

Most anything you do successfully in life requires some sort of plan and landscape design is no exception to the rule.  A well planned design can add many benefits to your emotional and physical health as well as your pocketbook.  A great design is a direct result of careful planning.  The more time spent planning for a design, the more relevant the design will be for your outdoor space and more enjoyment you'll receive from it.

Planning requires some answers to a number of questions like:  How will the design fit in the area and surroundings? What direction is the prevailing wind?  Where does the sun set?  How do you move through the space? Do certain areas or objects need to be removed from sight? What kind of furniture do you have inside your home?  What style of architecture is your home?  Do you have any allergies? And the list goes on...

"A great design starts with careful planning."

Planning and design are probably the most important, but most overlooked aspects of the landscape installation process.
 Too often homeowners install landscapes that are subpar in relationship to their home.  Here a few things to consider:

  • The American Society of Landscape Architects recommends homeowners install gardens approximately 10 percent of their homes value.
  • The American Nursery and Landscape Association states that landscapes can earn a 100-200 percent recovery value when selling your home.
  • The Gallup Organization says that landscaping accounts for 7 to 15 percent of a home's value.

A professional landscape design is a proven way to add real value to your property. It's also a great way to get your home's landscape moving in the right direction. Even if the landscape isn't installed all at once, it's invaluable to have a central goal while the installation is spread out into phases over the course of a few seasons.
