Our custom landscape designs are unsurpassed.
We evolved from an engineering & landscaping background – putting our design/build capabilities in a class of their own. Our trade practices are based upon engineering theory, scientific data, & nationally recognized construction methods by accredited organizations.
Every one of our custom landscape designs are unique and custom for each of our customers. We do not rubber stamp our design layouts. We love to use unique plants that you don’t see every day. Many of our customers have complimented us by saying that a family member or friend that is a Master Gardener complimented them on their landscaping design that we installed and was intrigued by some of the plants that we used and had not seen some of them before.
Every custom landscape design should reflect the personal decorating taste of the clients as well as the house architecture.
We strive to learn the clients needs and use the design to convey and create the environment that we feel they will truly enjoy. It is also imperative that the landscape design selected match the clients abilities to maintain it. Ideally, the clients should be able to prune all the plants in two days per year. We understand that the best looking landscape designs will not continue to look good if the customer cannot feasibly maintain them.
We prefer to select plants that provide interest through different colors, textures, and fragrances throughout the year. We are not big fans of using plain evergreens that do not produce any color or interest. We like plants that have vibrant leaf colors or blooms. We prefer to use every color within the color spectrum and play the colors off of one-another to create vibrant color contrasts. We also like to balance the evergreen plants with the deciduous plants to prevent large sections of the landscaping from looking barren during the winter months. We also try to select plants that draw hummingbirds, butterflies, and butterfly moths close to walkways and patios to draw the beauty of nature close to you.
