For James and his team, they can’t imagine not having a garden and beautiful landscaping in the places they call home.

An outdoor living space is much more than a way to create curb appeal or impress the neighbors: an outdoor living space is meant for living. And that means life in every aspect. From enjoyment today to a legacy decades down the line, our creations are meant for longevity and generational enjoyment. 

We also embrace an approach of bringing the outdoors inside. We want your outdoor spaces to be a source of inspiration and enjoyment from every window, door, and living space. Instead of creating an outdoor area that is only enjoyed from the street or onlooking, we want you to truly experience the beauty of your entire property. 

When you realize you can’t imagine your space without a garden to bring you peace and happiness, you have arrived at the ultimate Hanselman approach to living.

Inspiration and Ma

With a strong appreciation for traditional Japanese approaches to landscaping and gardens, Hanselman uses the practices of ancient Japan as inspiration for the ways they explore, design, build, and nurture their creations. 

While ma may be a new term to you, it has been a staple of Hanselman projects for decades. In traditional Japanese culture, ma refers to the artistic interpretation of an empty space, often holding as much importance as the rest of an artwork and focusing the viewer on the intention of negative space in an art piece.


“If you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life”

Frank Lloyd Wright

About Us: Hanselman Landscape And Garden'S Hanselman Garden Journal Background

In our line of work, we prioritize the sense of place and human experience in a garden or outdoor living space over any single item or collection of items. A great project is more impactful than one particular object or design. 

We take pride in the work that we do and the quality of craftsmanship we produce. Our integrity for both our clients and projects is one of the main reasons we hear many customers choose to work with our team. 

We have a deep loyalty to our clients, just as they do with us. Many of the customers we support have been working with us for 20 or more years!

Not only do our team members produce high-quality work that represents Handelman, but they understand how to do it well. The pruning and design services that we provide require an understanding of the products and a respect for the tools we use. 

Many of our team members bring unique experiences and perspectives to our crew from all different backgrounds and trades. We utilize collaboration and exploration in much of the work that we do, always growing to learn more skills as a team and push our designs to the next level. 

We embrace a willingness to seek inspiration from afar, rather than simply utilize modular concrete solutions or “builder package” foundation plantings. While many of our designs are inspired by ancient Japanese practices, we allow every project to take shape organically based on the clients ideas, the products we use, the unique space, and other factors. 

The work you put into your landscaping and garden today will benefit you tenfold in years to come. We approach every project with a garden legacy mindset meaning we want your final product to be a space that continues to grow and produce happiness for generations to come.
