Landscape Design & Build

Great design isn’t about how it looks. It’s about how it makes you feel.

A Design Is Your Roadmap To A Spectacular Landscape

Designing your landscape doesn’t mean just putting colors on paper. And it’s not all about talent either. Many customers say about Steve that “he just gets it.” He makes everything happen by listening on a deeper, abstract level.

When you work with Steve, he becomes part of your life. You’re not going to get a design to tuck away into our portfolio. You’re getting a personalized design that fits your lifestyle, paints your vision, and makes the most out of your property and budget.

A professional design is your blueprint to getting what you want, and getting what you want right the first time.

A Design Without Flawless Execution Is Just A Pretty Drawing

A designer designs. A landscaper puts it all together. Then you need the correct irrigation system for your plants and some outdoor lighting. Maybe a nice fire pit for chilly evenings. Suddenly you’re looking at hiring about 5 different contractors to bring your vision to life… And your chances for a cohesive home landscape are becoming slim.

We eliminate all the unknowns of the process and give you unmatched service from start to finish. We make the design come to life by taking control and managing the project from design to completion.

That can only happen when your designer is your contractor. We make sure that your vision for your landscape and its purpose remains intact, and that you get everything you want and more.

How It Works

The Guarantee Of A Landscape You’ll Love In 3 Easy Steps

You shouldn’t plant a flower, bush, or tree without having some sort of vision for the space. A design takes the guesswork out, ensures we make the best decisions, and keeps your budget clear and in control. Here’s how we make your landscape the best thing about your home:

Step 1. Site Analysis

When you’re ready to give your home its proper outdoors, get in touch with us. Steve will schedule an on-site consultation to see what’s possible on the site. Once he’s there, he’ll take a tour, get to know the area, and talk about you and your needs. Sharing your vision for your home is the first step towards a great design.

Step 2. Vision And Concept

The next is a basic landscape layout and color rendering. Based on the rough design, we’ll be able to offer you an estimate. If you find the preliminary sketches promising, Steve designs your landscape in detail. Choosing all the plants and materials, Steve will put his best ideas forward in a final design.

Step 3. Putting The Design Into Reality

All you need to do from now on is sit back and relax while we bring your vision to life. As we work on your dream landscape, we keep you updated with every step of the process. Our team is always happy to answer all your questions, and Steve is going to oversee the entire process from start to finish. Once we’re done, enjoy a home landscape you used to only dare imagine.

But Don’t Just Take Our Word For It…

Here’s what happy homeowners like you say about our services:

“Steve saw layers, levels, and dimensions we wouldn’t have. He walked the property, took in the land. He had a vision. He also made the most of what was on the property. He used the rock that was on the property to construct the back wall-he wasn’t just looking to spend my money.”

Paul Adler, attorney and veteran commercial real-estate broker

“There’s a “Steveism” I love: do it once, do it right. Steve exceeds people’s expectations. Those are very personal to the client. No client is going to come in wanting the same thing as everyone else. Whatever he hears in his initial consultation – an amazing pool, a to-die-for backyard, a restful pergola – he’ll take that vision, expand on it, and deliver something that blows their mind.”

Julie White, Owner of Julie White Interiors, Ltd

“I highly recommend Steve Griggs for any of your landscaping needs. Steve redid our backyard two years ago and just transformed the exterior of our house with a new cedar facade, modern plantings, and landscape lighting. Steve and his team could not have been more responsive, professional or reliable. He personally went above and beyond to ensure every detail of our project was just right. We would gladly work with him again.”
