The right plants in the right spot make for a perfect landscape that lasts longer

A Home Landscape That Leaves You In Awe At Every Moment

A backyard without plants is like a beautiful picture without a frame. Plants bring color and texture to your backyard. They create a living environment that uplifts you every time you step outside.

Choosing flowers and plants that work with your lifestyle is also important. If your goal is to have zero maintenance plants, we won’t choose five different flower types that need daily tending.

So it’s not about having a few cool-looking plants spaced around your backyard – it’s about having the right plants.

With Steve, you get the plants that work for you. His horticulture degree and extensive learning over the past three decades ensures he knows every plant and where it needs to go. He’ll make sure your landscape looks like it’s pulled out of a magazine.

Your landscape should look like the house was built around it, never in reverse. We’re here to make that happen.

Here’s Why You’re Getting A Truly Unique Landscape

A typical landscape architect will come to your property and design your backyard on paper. But you’ll still need a landscaper to build it. And if you were to only hire a landscaper, he’ll ask for the design!

This is where our unique approach makes the difference. Steve comes in and orchestrates the entire job from A to Z. First, he’ll get his pencils and design your backyard. Next, he makes it as easy as possible for you by coordinating the build, the budget, and the timeline.

The best plants are picked by hand and placed by Steve himself. This ensures the design translates perfectly into the space. When done, Steve will make sure you have all the information you need to keep your plants beautiful for longer.

How It Works

3 Easy Steps Towards The Ultimate Home Landscape

If you’re ready to bring your favorite flowers and plants into your backyard or on your front porch, leave it to Steve. He’ll mix and match them in different layers, in a way you didn’t expect but one that you’ll absolutely love. Here’s how we make it work for you:

Step 1. Get In Touch With Us

Tell us everything about your vision for your home landscape. We’ll get back to you with a phone consultation to learn more about the plants you love, your lifestyle, and the area you’re in. This will help us recommend the plants that suit your environment the best.

Step 2. Enjoy Steve’s Design Mastery

The most important phase of the entire project is the design. Every home is different, the plants are different for every region, and every customer has different tastes too. That’s why every project is custom made to fit your home and lifestyle completely.

Step 3. Admire Your Plants Every Day

When we’re done, you’ll be looking at your home landscape and won’t believe your eyes. Is that wonderful backyard truly yours? Yes it is! Enjoy the look of your very own garden oasis and all the different flowers, plants, and trees that form it. You’ve got your very own piece of nature outside your door.

But Don’t Just Take Our Word For It…

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

“Steve thought of things I didn’t think were coming. There are a whole lot of big trees to cover other people from seeing in. He put a row of giant evergreens along the fence line and then a line of birch in front of those. I couldn’t figure out why the layers until you figure that one sheds its leaves and the others don’t. It was a master stroke.”

Regis Boff, raconteur and retired rock-and-roll executive

“Steve looks ahead. When I told him I wanted a certain plant, he said, “no you don’t. It’s an annual. It dies every year and you have to get new ones. You can spend a little more on perennials that come back year after year. Get something that lasts. Try this plant instead.” We spent more on the front end on perennials but have saved hundreds every year since. They look fantastic where they’re placed. The plants are the perfect accent.”
