From a foundation planting in Levittown to a rooftop terrace in Manhattan, hiring a professional Landscape Designer could be one of the smartest investment decisions you’ll ever make. As Designers we are educated and qualified in the principles of garden design and horticulture and help our clients avoid the costly mistakes that can turn the dream of an outdoor oasis into a landscape nightmare.
We are skilled practitioners of fundamental design concepts—proportion, unity, balance, perspective, color, texture—that can bring about a fully integrated design. We have a comprehensive knowledge of plants so that you get the right plant for the right place. We are skilled communicators and planners who work with contractors, vendors, local governments and others to complete successful projects. We promote sustainable practices whenever possible.
Great landscapes don't grow on trees, but start with a thoughtfully designed Master Plan. Your unique landscape should answer the needs and wants of your unique family.
A professionally prepared landscape design becomes a very important tool. It is a tool that allows you to avoid the typical mistakes made in an unplanned garden—mistakes that can be expensive to correct.
It's money well spent! Landscaping is a small investment that will reap big rewards as your properly placed and maintained plant material matures and increases in value year after year.
A landscape designer must not only have an extensive knowledge of the science of horticulture and its components, but also of the elements of art and design principles.
By its very nature, Landscape Design allows different ingredients of art and science to come together and produce a purposeful, visually pleasing expansion of indoor living to the outdoors. A primary objective of landscape design is to combine man's technology (house or building) into the natural surroundings to create a cohesive plan.
The Wall Street Journal® reported that landscape investments are recovered fully, and sometimes doubled, by the increased home value. Proper landscaping and landscape design not only looks beautiful, but actually increases the value of any real estate investment.
Have your own landscaper? Need a second opinion? Have the personal motivation to take care of your own landscaping? Feel like you have some design sense but not the knowledge you need?
We can do on-site consulting to help you plan out your design, flesh out your ideas and give you advice on the technical aspects. Planning around the seasonal shapes, blooms and colors are major aspects that people overlook. With professional consulting you can get insight into these major issues and get a assistance planning with or around them.
If you decide after the consultation that "Do-It-Yourself" is not for you, the consultation fee will be put toward the cost of the plans or completed design.
