Night Lighting, Irrigation and Surface Water Control Services

Your garden has functional needs for safety and preservation. Lighting can prevent a stumble on a dark step. Drip irrigation protects your investment in valuable trees and shrubs. And well-managed surface water preserves your soil and keeps water away from your home. In each of these areas, you can expect not only a thorough and effective job, but one that endures and adds elegance and beauty to your garden.

Explore the following sections to see how we can support your landscape garden with these practical solutions in creative ways.

Landscape Lighting Design

Simplicity and elegance—Landscape lighting allows you to enjoy your garden into the night, and offers a new way to experience the same environment. With well-planned lighting, intimacy and privacy are heightened and no glare interrupts the view. As Michelle, one of our best long-term clients, phrased it, “You can see faces, but you can also see the stars!”

Dependable efficiency—For most busy professionals, a timed drip irrigation system is a necessity. The benefits of labor savings, reliably-accomplished watering chores, and healthy plants make the expenditure more than worthwhile. Contact us if you would like to take advantage of the ease, savings and dependability of an irrigation system in your garden.

Surface Water Control

When installing outdoor structures or garden spaces, we plan ahead to control erosion so as to preserve precious topsoil and keep local streams and waterways clear. From the initial design phase of each project, we give careful thought to managing waterflow away from the home. Although this can be a complex challenge, we always plan for dry basements and incorporate ways to direct water flow away from the home in attractive ways that fit the surrounding garden (dry stream beds, for example).
