Custom Outdoor Arrangements
A “wow” factor doesn’t need to be large. A beautiful garden in miniature creates as much impact as a full landscape. A gorgeous planter by your front entrance will draw in the eye from the street and welcome your guests. Containers, hanging baskets and window boxes all add 3 dimensional beauty to your landscape, drawing the eye up as well as over the garden.
We can build onsite or pickup your planters and return them fully planted. We do planters for a special occasion to four season displays rearranged every season:
Spring – late March to early April depending on the weather
Summer – after the May weekend
Fall – September/October to last through November
Christmas – all out sparkle or elegantly natural to last through the winter months with containers, garlands, swags and window boxes.
Onsite horticultural consultations include design options, hand drawn sketches and planting plans, plant selection, any help with your current garden that you may need.
An inherited garden can be overwhelming if you have never gardened before. We will help you identify your plants, decide which ones can be kept, which can be renewed, and which should be removed.
Do you have an insect or disease issue? We can identify the problem and advise on an appropriate course of treatment with an emphasis on natural controls.
Full Design Plans
A full landscape design plan starts with an initial consultation to determine your wishes, objectives and budget.
Design plans include elevation, concept, construction, master and planting plans either hand rendered or computer drawn with concept photos. Upon agreement a 50% deposit is required.
On site measurements and photos are taken.
An initial concept plan is completed and a meeting arranged to review and approve the design.
The final plan(s) are drawn up.
Whether you desire a lush romantic English garden, a sophisticated modern landscape, or a low maintenance design for the busy professional, we will design the perfect garden for your needs and wishes.
We can help with choosing the right landscape contractor to bring your landscape dream to life.
