Consultation

The first step in the journey. Whether you desire an hour of horticultural expertise or a design consult that will evolve into a full-scale project, we are happy to meet with you to discuss your needs. Possible discussion topics include design styles, planting plans and features such as decks and patios. We offer coaching sessions for home gardeners who require assistance on the care and feeding of their existing plants.

Design

What are your hopes and dreams for your property? Do you have a vision of your perfect landscape or are you vague on the details? Do you throw wild parties or are you seeking peace and tranquility? Design is a collaborative process and the goal is a perfect balance of aesthetic and practical solutions for your property. When we are happy with the concept, original plans are drawn by hand. They are as detailed as you need them to be.  If required, construction documents are created for all aspects of the planned environment including: landscape planting schemes, patios and terraces, pools and spas, custom structures, fencing, pergolas, railings, fireplaces, firepits and terrace walls.  Softscapes and plant material are recommended and then refined in the plan, based on personal tastes and maintenance needs.

Build

As a design-build firm, our designers are closely involved in all aspects of construction. If onsite challenges arise, the design and build teams collaborate to find solutions that ensure the vision and intent of the original plan are fulfilled. Construction and installation services include: irrigation systems, decks, patios, pools, walkways, arbors, pergolas, gates, fences, water features and other distinctive hardscape. We design and custom-fabricate in metal, concrete, wood, and stone.
