Designed specifically to meet your needs.

What are the various types of gardens?

The garden should be specifically designed to meet the needs of the user.  For example, this may be a garden that is used by an individual homeowner for meditation. As another example, it could be a garden that is used by a group of people for meditation.

What distinguishes a Therapeutic Garden from other gardens?

A Therapeutic Garden is specifically designed to meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the people using the garden.

We offer…

Site Analysis – Conducting an inventory of an outside area that is intended to be developed into a garden. This is the first step in compiling information necessary to create a Landscape Plan. It involves talking with the owner/client, research of the site’s history and analysis of existing conditions. Site conditions, such as natural features, circulation, climate, are many of the elements considered.

Conceptual design – This is the second step in the design phase where drawings are created to visually represent the concept discussed.  The drawings are simple and should easily covey to the owner/client the goals of the project, which includes an illustrated description of the overall concepts and requirements of the project.

Landscape architectural design – This step encompasses the design of the outdoor space(s) that are intended to create specific environmental, social and/or aesthetic settings.  The process of creating a landscape plan involves an analysis of the site, development of a concept plan and the creation of a landscape plan based upon the garden information gathered.  This is typically a collaborative process involving the client, the individuals who will use the garden and led by a licensed design professional.
