Irrigation is the lifeblood of a garden. But keeping a garden hydrated is not as simple as daily watering. Depending on grading, soil types, specific plants, and sunlight exposure, different areas of your landscape will have different irrigation needs. Factor in drainage and environmental concerns, and achieving successful, efficient irrigation becomes quite a complex process. Fortunately, it’s a process we know well. We can create an irrigation system perfectly suited to every part of your landscape, with minimal water waste. We’ll even help you choose and install the perfect water feature to accent your garden.

Even the best, most efficient of gardens requires significant maintenance. Trees and shrubs must be trimmed, grass must be cared for, structures must be repaired and maintained, and weeds must be controlled. We are passionate about the gardens we design – in many cases we have nurtured the plants we use from the time they were seedlings. We are happy to offer ongoing landscape maintenance – not only as a valuable service for our clients, but as an opportunity to be a continuing part of the garden’s legacy, and help it thrive and grow from year to year.
