SUSTAINABLE DESIGN… The Dirt

How we work
Landis Garden Design consults with our clients to find out what type of  landscape they think will work for them. Do they want an outdoor living room, or a deck for dining, an outdoor kitchen or a fire pit area?  We conduct an extensive survey and consider the logic of the site, to determine which built elements will satisfy the client’s goals. We then consider which sustainable practices, 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.
