Residential Landscape Design
Memorable landscapes reach out to all five senses. Sight is excited by plant selection, colors, placement, and views which create harmony and beauty. Sound can be created through splashes of water features, bird attracting plants, and swaying Bamboos. Many tropical and subtropical plants emit intoxicating fragrances and edible plantings are becoming wildly popular. The textures and feel of plants are limitless and fascinating.
In addition to curb appeal, plants, trees, pools and hardscape elements increase property values. Plantings can be placed to reduce energy bills and to extend the living space into the outdoors for more square footage of living area.
Plant selection and placement are environmentally important because they can attract wildlife, and dictate fertilizer, pesticide, and water usage.
Commercial Landscape Design
Spectacular country club gated entrances, condominium grounds, office spaces and community common areas express volumes about the spaces and the people who live or work in them. Commercial sites require specimens that make grand statements for the highest impact. We work with Homeowners Associations and City Approval Boards to ensure community goals are met. Our presentation materials reveal our vision and our installation crews are always professional. We often utilize unusual plant species and waterscaping to make our projects unique and memorable.
Swimming Pool Design
Swimming pools play vital roles as central points of interest and have the greatest impact when they are carefully designed as part of a greater concept. We design pools and help select materials and additional features to enhance the appearance and usage of a site. We use watershaping to combine light, sound, and reflection and design the surrounding hardscape materials for entertaining, cooking, relaxing and playing. From the design to the installation, we manage the pool construction through completion.
Landscape & Architectural Illuminations
How an object is illuminated is just as important as what is being focused upon. We manipulate light and shadow to emphasize and highlight plant textures, architectural features, spaces and colors. Conducting the right balance of light and shadow gives depth, intent and emotion to an environment. We integrate art, architecture, and function with technology and long-lasting fixtures to create a memorable experience within the visual environment.
