Landscape Design Services

INSPIRATION: let us help you imagine the perfect landscape…

For over 20 years, the landscape architects and designers at Ivy Street Design have been helping families, businesses, and communities create amazing landscapes. We start with careful listening and observation. We understand that each site is distinct and each client’s goals unique – that’s why we develop innovative and practical concepts that reflect your specific needs and the nature of your property. We use colorful illustrations and animation techniques to help you easily visualize your project. We can design anything outside: from traditional retaining walls to modern patios, wooden decks to brick fire features, custom steel pergolas to stone barbecues, and urban agriculture plots to native xeriscape gardens. Our designers recognize that environmental stewardship means deep consideration of sustainability, conservation, and maintenance. We address these issues early on in the design phase to ensure that our projects endure for years.  The Ivy Street Design team loves to explore all varieties of style and scale – check out our extensive portfolio of historic and contemporary residences, churches, schools, public event spaceshotels and HOAs!

INSTALLATION (DONE RIGHT!): let us build your project for you…

When it comes to construction, we’ve got you covered. Ivy Street Design considers costs and phasing strategies during the design process to meet your budget and your schedule. Our knowledge of local regulations allows us to resolve increasingly complex permitting and code issues. We prepare detailed and accurate construction documents to ensure quality construction, every time. Our plans include elevation and detail drawings, layout for grading and drainage, as well as specifications for everything from irrigation to lighting.

Over the years, we have developed close relationships with some of the best landscape contractors in the industry – these local businesses comprise our very own preferred network of installers. After finalizing construction documents, we’ll request pricing from a handful of outstanding contractors and compile a competitive bid comparison; this process assures that our customers receive solid quality control at a competitive price. We’ll then help you select a contractor and provide on-site construction support from pre-construction meetings until the last plant is in the ground.

GROWING, CHANGING, AND STAYING BEAUTIFUL: let us be your trusted landscape advisors for years to come…

Maintenance begins in the design phase, and we assure that your unique design will reflect your long-term maintenance preferences. For more  help, Ivy Street Design can provide trusted references and periodic check-ups. Our long list of contacts in the local network of landscape professionals allows us to provide you with a personal connection to any maintenance help you might need. Don’t ever hesitate to call us with questions or concerns; we love watching our projects “grow up!”
