A professionally designed garden can make all the difference when you are turning your house into a home. Landscape designers have be trained to look at things like sun, shade, planting, hard surfaces retaining walls and more when designing. It is when looking at these things they ensure that it all meets your desires for your outdoor space.

Water Features - Water features can be anything from a swimming pool to a pond or a seemingly natural pebbled river flowing through your space. Getting it right is the landscape designers responsibility.
Retaining Walls - Often retaining walls are needed for practical purposes to hold back a large amount of soil or to level out a garden space.

Pergolas - More than just a place out of the sun a pergola comes in many shapes and sizes. Done well this covered space can really enhance your way of life by creating an outdoor room for you to enjoy and extend the size of your home.
