SUSTAINABLE DESIGN… The Dirt

How we work
Landis Garden Design consults with our clients to determine what type of designed landscape they think will work for them. Do they want an outdoor living room, for entertaining?  A patio or deck for outdoor dining?  Our initial site visit includes conducting an extensive survey, when we evaluate the logic of the site, and consider which built elements will satisfy the client’s goals.We let the client know which sustainable practices, if any, might help. We create two draft site plans and get client feedback before finalizing the site plan and creating a planting plan for the site’s design.
Our vision of eco friendly design includes everything from the dirt we dig, to the dirt we bring in.  City builders cut down the forests, and in the process, impacted the natural permeability of the landscape. Sediment loss on barren lands, over decades of heavy rainfalls, has depleted most neighborhoods of all the ‘good dirt’.  We enhance the soils of the garden and recreate native conditions that allow plants, people, and wildlife to thrive.
Landis Garden Design creates outdoor rooms that will delight,  and make your garden the place you have always wanted.
We provide Garden Consults, Landscape Design Services, as well as complete landscape installations.
