These images show the diversity of our work.
Found objects, sculpture and art can add personality to a landscape. We encourage our clients to supply us with their treasures, or we can create custom fountains, murals etc. on commission. Proper placement of any art piece is critical since it will become the focal point of the garden.
Any yard can become an inviting oasis with the addition of water. In addition to serving as an instant focal point, ponds attract dragonflies and birds, and fountains and waterfalls can mitigate background noises such as traffic. Properly designed and installed, a fountain or small ornamental pool can be affordable and require only minimal maintenance.
Elemental. Substantial. Timeless. The siting and placement of stone is critical. Each carefully selected rock is partially buried so that it appears to “have always been there”, then maneuvered so that its best side faces the viewer. While upright boulders add drama and excitement, low, rounded forms “ground” the garden.
Well-designed and constructed hardscape is an investment, not an indulgence. Built elements don’t need maintenance or irrigation – they are the ultimate drought tolerant enhancement to your outdoor living! Sitting areas can be as simple as a rustic bench off a meandering pathway to an elaborate multi-level deck with steps, landings and railings.
Paths both delineate and unify the different parts of the garden. Your walkways are the single most important design element because they determine the sequence and quality of your garden experience. Primary paths link major destinations such as entryways and sitting areas, while secondary walks connect less frequently accessed areas such as storage areas.
Living, growing plants distinguish landscaping from all other trades. As plants grow, the intent of the designer is revealed and the garden takes on its unique personality. Planting design considers the height, width, form, texture, color, longevity, hardiness, water needs, and maintenance requirements of each plant to be used.
