Tip #1 – Start with a Plan
Every yard is different: the buildings, the site conditions, and the people that use the area. Planning is an important step in creating an outdoor space to use, view and enjoy.
Tip #2 – Choosing Plant Material
Choose plant materials that help extend the growing season by providing early or late color.
|Early Season||Late Season|
Tip #3 – Design Concepts
Landscape design connects people with the outdoor spaces that surround them.
Landscape design encompasses climate and site conditions, client tastes and the architectural features of buildings. A variety of techniques are used to develop landscapes that are pleasing, healthy, and beautiful.
