The Value we add

Think of landscape design as a recipe. If the plan is substandard, then the cake will never taste right.

Our expertise in Landscape Design is unique when comparing Rochester area landscaping companies.

Exceptional design adds great value to your landscaping or Hardscaping project. It ensures maximum appeal & function for your property, providing years of enjoyment and great memories.

And since we’re such a small team, you’ll have access to a tight-knit, professional group that knows exactly what they’re doing when it gets to the construction phase.

Hardscape Features
for Landscaping

When designing a landscape the combination of hardscaping and plantings create the best outcome.


When we say hardscapes it refers to the heavier elements in a landscape such as:

  • Boulders
  • Pathways
  • Patios & walkways
  • Pillars and walls

Although they require more technical consideration when being installed, hardscaping elements normally require minimal maintenance thereafter.

retaining walls

Natural boulders can be used in place of man made blocks to create retaining walls. They are much longer lasting and add a natural ambience to your project.

We directly source this material creating a cost effective solution for retaining walls and grade changes.

Another option we offer that adds to the look of our projects, is the use of weathered boulders to create accents and outcroppings. The natural look of these boulders adds interesting texture and form to your landscape composition.

Since we are able to directly source this material, the cost is very reasonable

A space to congregate

A fire feature becomes a natural space to congregate for conversation, family gatherings and relaxation. It’s a destination point in your outdoor space to hang with friends and connect with family.



Water Features are a four season focal point.

A water feature is another  natural feature that draws people. Often becoming the hub of a backyard landscape. It’s a great place to create some family memories.
