ECOLOGICAL DESIGN

Our approach is based on an integrated design strategy that can minimize negative environmental impacts by imitating models derived from natural ecosystems. 

We recommend completing an initial design phase before getting started on the landscape installation. Working with our Design Team, our Clients receive recommendations for site-specific plant species, durable materials, and highly efficient irrigation components that result in projects that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are affordable. The final design is used to create a project that addresses the user’s needs and goals.

While all designs are unique, there are three major categories of landscape design that we offer:

Site Planning


We offer landscape planning, focused on utilitarian + functional ideas, developed through a broad analysis of the Client’s design goals and site opportunities.

I. SITE PLANNING

We offer ‘big picture’ land-use planning, emphasizing utilitarian + functional ideas based on a broad analysis of the Client’s design goals and site opportunities. 

A loose, narrative design structure is used to shape outdoor spaces, situate buildings on the land, and portray landscape improvements. Often coupled with a detailed site analysis, this service-level is a great option for those planning ahead for new development, or a freshly acquired property. A free flow of ideas allows the project to ‘come together’ informally before moving to more advanced stages of design.

II. SCHEMATIC DESIGN

Our most popular design service; a Schematic Design is the perfect starting point for most residential projects. Specific site features and a refined materials palette combine to define the scope and layout of the project.

Clear boundaries are established: areas of sun and shade, hardscape and landscape, work and play take shape. Relationships between indoor and outdoor spaces are fine-tuned. A design style is identified, and an installation budget + phasing plan is developed.
