Garden and Landscape Design Services

Welcome. We love garden design. A well-designed outdoor space compliments your home, creates a place for you to relax and your kids to play, and provides so many reasons for you to get outside and connect with yourself, your family and the healing benefits of nature.

 Our unique design process is holistic, in-depth and responsive to your lifestyle and home landscape. We believe good design is life-enhancing. We take the time to get to know our clients, their preferences and the details and idiosyncrasies of their existing landscape.

Our technical expertise as landscape architects and artistic aspirations as garden designers ensures that the process with be fun, creative, practical and that the outcome - your design - will be the solution your landscape has been waiting for.

Our designs are perfect for DIYers who will use the plans as a guide to implement their outdoor space over time OR the plans can be used to get competitive quotes from landscape contractors and instruct the construction process.

Our passions are modern design with naturalistic plantings, incorporating edibles and productive plants into the landscape, and creating spaces that revive and rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit.

 

Our Design Process:

  1. Intake - an in-depth inquiry into your aesthetic preferences, lifestyle, budget, wishlist and maintenance needs.

  2. Site Inventory and assessment to understand sun, shade, drainage, soil, wind patterns, microclimate and existing vegetation.

  3. Draft Concept Designs - sketches, images, models. We use visual tools like Pinterest and 3-D modeling to enrich the design process and review it together to get it just right.

  4. Landscape Master Plan - We bring it all together with a design that makes the most of your land, budget and wish list. We provide a landscape plan that you can install yourself or with contractors, all at once or phased over time. 

  5. Construction Support (optional). We will provide support during the construction process by getting several quotes from trusted contractors and coordinating implementation to ensure a smooth process and exceptional results.
