We provide designs for garden renovations and new home construction. This includes “hardscape” features such as retaining walls, patios, and pathways, and “softscape” features including trees, shrubs, hedges, turf, and ground covers as well as considerations for soil and mulch. We work with clients or contractors to create designs that are both eye catching and ideal for the site and growing conditions. At an initial meeting with one of our designers, the scope of the project will be determined and an estimate for design hours will be given. Projects range from sketches for individual beds to scale drawings for the whole property.
When creating a design, special consideration is given to:
- Site Location and Context
- Existing Buildings and Site Structures
- Site Functions
- Topography and Microclimate
- Soil Quality
- Themes / Overall Concept
