Four Seasons of Container Color.
Our lasting, custom container plantings are designed with your favorite colors, scents or textures in mind. Containers may be window boxes, hanging planters or pots of any size or shape. We use a variety of plants, stems and decorative elements for optimal satisfaction. Commercial containers are assembled with eye-catching elements to delight your clients as they approach your business entrances. Our unique designs are considerate of sunny or shady locations, ‘micro-climate’ conditions surrounding the container, and soils are adjusted for optimal moisture-retention and watering demands.
Our Seasonal Container Services program offers these options:
Discover the full potential of your landscape.
Every landscape project we design is unique to your lifestyle, your vision and your budget. We can start with a blank pallet or rejuvenate your existing landscape to accommodate a new patio, fire feature, retaining wall or pergola.
A well designed and healthy landscape will draw attention to your business and add real value to your home. Whether you need complete landscape rejuvenation, or simply seasonal container plantings, you’ll find the process of working with us easy, engaging, and efficient.
We will take the time to fully understand the personality of your home or business and its existing landscape through careful site evaluation. Our team will develop a landscaping plan, utilizing site visits and photographs as well as computer-aided drafting. We will meet with you throughout the design and installation process to insure your complete satisfaction. Our full color AutoCAD landscaping plans include plant and special feature photographs, schedules and details to fully outline your landscaping project.
