During the initial construction phase, our skilled teams pay close attention to detail—grading and contouring of soil in beds and berms, considering scale, coordinating stone, concrete and masonry of rock walls, patios, and paved pathways. All plant and construction materials that are reusable will be recycled.
Selecting healthy plants for color and fragrance, opting for native and xeric plants whenever possible, we incorporate water-wise irrigation practices. With sub-surface watering options and high-tech irrigation controllers for automated systems, the self-replenishing ecosystems thrive, even in the most dry and scorching mid-summer days.
Butterfly and wildlife gardens and high-yielding organic vegetable beds for the urban gardener can be incorporated into the overall planning scheme, seamlessly blending into the customized design. Streams, blooming water gardens, fountains and waterfalls cool the environment, attracting birds and wildlife while providing the ambient sound of water. To insure the beauty and integrity of the landscape, the company offers on-going maintenance services by skilled technicians.
Custom lighting stretches the twilight hours for optimum outdoor enjoyment, particularly in changing seasons and shorter daylight hours. On the bleakest winter days of dormancy, sculptural moss rock boulders, shadowy evergreens and structural plant forms stretch up through drifting snow, revealing a starkly beautiful winterscape until spring bursts back in vibrant bloom.
