Plantings bring the landscape to life. They engage the senses and exponentially enhance the outdoor experience. Plantings provide habitat, shelter, and food for a wide array of fauna. They bring shade on a sunny day, fragrance to a kitchen garden and attract the company of morning songbirds. Hardscapes seem cold and lifeless without the explosions of color, scent, and texture a properly designed plantscape provides. As landscape architects, we utilize plantings to serve the functional needs and aesthetic desires of our clients while also being mindful of the surrounding environment. Nature has provided us a wonderful palette of trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and annuals that be assembled in limitless combinations ensuring our projects are as unique as the individual clients themselves.
