The first step on our design journey is the on-site consultation where we talk patios, walkways, plants, water… whatever’s on your mind.

The fun begins! We start at a high-level concept and then refine our ideas until we have a buildable plan that meets our budget.

Fun Facts About Sweetbay Magnolias

Did you know Arlington County is giving away trees, including one of my favorites, our native Magnolia virginiana, aka the Sweetbay Magnolia?

1They support Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies and other native insects.
2They tolerate swampy conditions and are excellent for stormwater garden solutions.
3They typically reach ~20' high in home gardens.
4They were nicknamed 'Beaver Trees' by early colonists because beavers couldn't resist their tasty roots.

Landscaping During CoronavirusLandscapers remain essential workers

Now more than ever we want to use every square foot of space available to us. If you're fortunate enough to have a garden and have been thinking about doing a landscape project, we can safely make that happen. Set up a consultation via Zoom or FaceTime, or an outdoor site visit where we can stand apart from each other while we chat. Sound stressful? Make yourself a cup of tea and kick that project down the road- I'll still be here when you're ready.
