Plantings and locations of outbuildings play an important role in the enjoyment and function of a property. Utilizing the services of a landscape architect can be invaluable in getting the most out of a new home. Proper drainage, wind protection and the cooling ability of plantings or trees can really save money over time, more than making up for the cost of the original services. In addition, certain plantings can hide unsightly meters or pipes. Knowledge of suitable plants and their growth patterns is very important. Using the landscaping to compose images, we can highlight both the plantings and the built structures, bringing out the best in both. We’ve worked for both hardscape and softscape companies and enjoy this type of assignment.
