Why Hire a Landscape Designer?
A landscape designer is essential to any sustainable, well-composed, functioning garden. Imagine being able to walk out into your yard and being welcomed by a pleasing garden layout, thriving plants that need little maintenance and the comfort of knowing that your garden will keep growing for years to come. Our design services will take you through the necessary processes to realize the full potential of your garden which include:
Spatial composition– what is the best flow/ most efficient use of space?
Plant selection and placement– avoid costly mistakes!
Designing as an ecosystem– how insects and birds enhance your garden and how other environmental factors will affect its growth.
Edible and ornamental combinations– make your garden productive as well as beautiful!
Irrigation techniques– should you use drip or spray?
Grading, Rain Gardens and Site drainage– understand how water flows on your site.
