Residential Landscape Design Portfolio

Being entrusted to design and construct significant portions of our clients’ private residential landscape is a responsibility and honor we feel privileged to undertake. It is critical to thoroughly understand each individual’s wishes and needs as well as the site’s particular characteristics. An overall approach is vital and with our design/build process, the endeavor can be taken phase by phase as desired, to create a harmonious and beautiful end project. The residences highlighted here represent a few of our favorites.


The two main challenges for this project were to accentuate the architecture of the home, and provide a multi-faceted living area in a very limited amount of space. Strong emphasis on detailed craftsmanship and natural materials enhanced the arts & craft bungalow style home making it a showcase.

Braddock Heights

This client wanted a backyard where they could entertain with family and friends.  They asked us to incorporate a pool, patio, lawn area and a fire pit all in a sloping backyard.


This 140 year-old row home presented a unique opportunity to breathe new life into an under utilized rear yard. Our goal was to transform a long, narrow backyard which primarily served as a pass through, into a captivating garden sensitive to the home’s history.


This project involved developing a landscape that would reflect the history and rural environment of the newly remodeled stone farmhouse and its accompanying outbuildings. Large groups had to be accommodated, yet intimate family and friend gathering places was also a need.


Overlooking the Catoctin Valley, this residence offered a dramatic view of Frederick’s pastoral farmlands. This backyard retreat offers a formal potager garden, anchored with a classic garden shed, an expansive dining area and more.

Wooded Retreat

Surrounded by woodland, the owners of this residence wanted us to create an outdoor haven where they could enjoy nature while letting their dogs run and play.
