design-1We can landscape our yard the way we want to. There is no right or wrong way. That said, a good strategy is the key to success. The right landscape design can increase property value and can help you achieve your landscaping goals. Share your vision with our professional landscape design specialist and make your life better!


Your Property is an Opportunity

Working together is the best way to create a successful landscape design. We recommend getting creative and looking at your space as an opportunity. With so many themes, we do not have to stick to just one type of design. We can keep the look of the South with Crape Myrtles or plant palms and create a tropical backyard paradise in Houston.

Do you enjoy outdoor living? If so, we will likely want to plant trees that create shade, too. Hardscape features such as a pool, built-in grill, or a fire pit complement a well-designed landscape, and may keep you from ever wanting to leave your yard! What do you want to do with your yard?


Preparing for the Visit

Come prepared for the landscape design consultation and enjoy your visit. It’s smart to have a plan and to ask all the right questions. Best of all, get inspired! We recommend taking photos of the yards you love! Bring in pictures from websites, magazines, and books and show them to the designer. This will help the designer get familiar with the styles, plants, and colors that you love.

  • What does your yard look like right now?
  • How do you want your space to look like in the future?
  • What do you want to do with your property?
  • Are there any special plants you want to include in your design?
  • What is your budget size?
  • What colors do you love?
  • Is creating privacy high on your list?
  • Any preference on themes?
  • Are you concerned about any HOA restrictions?
