DESIGN EXPERTISE Your property is an extension of your home-- both dynamic and evolving. Our interactive and personalized approach puts the client at center. The initial design planning is worth the investment, saving you money in the long run and helping you to realize your vision for your property. In addition to master plans, we offer conceptual quick sketch designs for lower budget projects.
HARDSCAPES This term is used to refer to all of the built or constructed elements in the landscape. Your â€œHardscapeâ€? creates the structure for your garden and property. We have a creative staff, with diverse talents, who can design and install patios, retaining walls, decks, and garden structures. If you can dream it, we can create it! We are known for our natural stonework in a variety of styles, as well as our unique and stunning outdoor-living designs. Whether you are looking for a simple, small patio to relax with friends and family or an elaborate multilevel deck and patio design with a built-in outdoor kitchen, we can guide you through your project from start to finish.
Our extensive horticultural experience supports integration of the latest ecological landscape techniques. We develop a foundation for sun and shade gardens, theme and rain gardens, cutflower beds and annual planters. Architectural plantings, vegetated walls and water features will attract birds, butterflies and other beneficial wildlife. With proper testing to determine the needed soil amendments and applying strictly organic fertilizers, we make your investment flourish. We personally select the highest-grade plant material from an array of the best local and specialty nurseries. Our team takes pride in artistic layouts that emphasize the natural beauty and complimentary color and texture combinations. We use proper horticultural methods and best-practices to ensure your plants will get the ideal startâ€”theyâ€™ll thrive and grow to their full potential with our care.
MAINTENANCE In our maintenance department, we combine plant enthusiasts, master gardeners and horticulturists to ensure your garden looks beautifully maintained in all seasons. From one-time cleanups to large mulching projects or colorful plant, bulb or focal point additions, we help you enjoy your yard to the fullest. Our customized seasonal contract ensures personalized support, knowledge and expertise for the health of your plants and longevity of your garden. Our artistic talents extend beyond routine upkeep-we create a space for your rejuvenation and enjoyment.
URBAN FARMING We design, install and maintain vegetable gardens, chicken coops and bees. Creating a customized farm at home is a very satisfying endeavor that is bound to feed you not just with healthy organic produce but with a deeper sense of relaxation, joy and connectedness to your property. It presents a beautiful opportunity to educate your children about natural foods, beneficial insects and the environment. This process will introduce the meaningfulness inherent in working with your soil from first planting to harvest.
You provide your family size, vegetable preferences, how often you cook. Then, we design an affordable garden plan, install, plant and maintain it for you, at a cost similar to shopping at your local organic store. Changing Ann Arborâ€™s landscape one yard at a time.
