What we do

Our vision of success includes spaces which enhance our clients’ outdoor enjoyment at home.

Hardspaces

Hardscape refers to features in the landscape that are built out of hard materials such as limestone, granite, concrete, and wood. This includes patios and walkways built out of natural stone or precast concrete pavers, walls, steps, decks, pergolas and screens.

It is always important when building any hardscape feature in the landscape that it is built properly. This means that there is a proper base or footings, as well as proper drainage. It is also important to make sure that any municipal codes are followed.

We would be happy to enhance your outdoor living space with a new hardscape feature. Please let us know how we can help.

Softspaces

Softscape refers to the features in the landscape that are made up of living, horticultural components. This includes perennial and shrub borders, tree plantings, vegetable gardens as well as lawns.

Softscapes are a great way to finish off the hardscaping elements of your landscape. Low ground covers are a great way to soften the edges of a stone patio, for example. They can also be a complete landscape all on their own. A few beautiful perennial border gardens connected with paths of lawn or mulch, for example.

One more important thing to remember when installing softscapes is the soil. Without a healthy soil, nothing you plant will survive very well. It is always a good idea to add a good compost to the existing soil to provide nutrients and micro-organisms. Mulching after planting will also help by keeping weeds out and water in.

  • Shrub and perennial planting
  • Annual planting
  • Soil grading
  • Sodding or seeding

Landscape Renovations

Landscape renovation refers to changes made to existing features in the landscape. Typically it involves the softscapes of the landscape but can sometimes include the hardscapes.

Renovating the softscapes might refer to making gardens or lawns bigger or smaller. This might include splitting perennials to accommodate the new space, or moving existing plants around in the garden. Sometimes the wrong plant has been planted and is not performing well, or is performing too well and is taking over the garden. Renovations could include removing these poor performers and replacing them with the right plant.

A garden renovation might be as simple as weeding out an overgrown garden and adding compost to amend the soil and mulch to help regulate water and keep weeds at bay.
