A completely new way to renovate your outdoor space
More benefits, less cost
Boost your property value by 15%
Well-designed outdoor spaces can add up to 15% to the value of your home. Not to mention increase quality of life and time spent outside.
Do it right the first time
The biggest outdoor renovation mistake people make is not starting with a coherent plan. We’ll listen to your requirements and propose realistic solutions.
Appreciates over time
Renovating your yard is one of the few home improvements you can make that increases in value over time as your plants mature.
Our philosophy on building your dream outdoor space
Native and ecologically adapted, wherever possible. Sustainable and resilient landscape design is best, and that sometimes means working with the established plants you already have — we’ll try to give them a second life with new companion plants. A resilient yard can survive with little water and maintenance, endures through harsh weather and the rigors of use by kids and pets, keeps invasives at bay and contributes to local habitat and tree canopy, grows lush and abundant year after year. Only those plants that are suited for your yard will thrive, so cut to the chase and work from that palette.
Form should follow function without sacrifice. We’re experts in the basics — decking, paving, stone, paint, windows, and doors— and we’ll gladly explain the pros and cons of everything we recommend for your space. We’ll take into account not just your climate but who uses your outdoor spaces. (Have an energetic dog that races across your back patio? We’ll guide you toward something that will stand up to scratches.) We aim to stay current on the latest in emerging sustainable materials and will suggest something special or repurposed if it makes sense for your project.
Low water by default. Unless you specify otherwise, we’ll choose plants that are already acclimated to your climate and conditions, and cut down on water requirements naturally.
Alternatives are worth exploring. If you want a lush, green lawn we’re certainly not going to stand in your way. But we might politely explain the advantages of alternatives, like low-water ground cover and artificial turf, which we prefer.
We’re experts who are executing your vision. We want to know everything about you, your property, and how you want to live in your outdoor spaces, in addition to all of your property’s unique characteristics. Then we’ll deliver a design that — depending on the creative agency you’ve granted us permission to express — either closely reflects what you want, or introduces the new ideas you’re looking for. We aim to deliver a design that will thrive, where that’s defined by both being beautiful and functional, and also helping with local ecology by providing habitat, vegetative cover and stormwater capture. Our ultimate goal is to help you spend more quality time outdoors in the comfort of your own sanctuary. Good design is how we get you there.
