Landscape Project Portfolio

""Our backyard was a hot mess; drainage issues, grass that wouldn't grow after multiple french drains, plants that wouldn't thrive, a crane fly playground...it was ugly. Alan Burke came over for a consultation and gave us multiple solutions to amend the situation by offering his "Good, Best and Very Best" options". (Angie's List 9/14) "Just had to say how much Peter and I absolutely love our backyard garden. We sit out at night enjoying the pond, the birds the butterflies, the landscape and constantly remark what an amazing, peaceful setting you created for us. Peter loves futzing in the garden and spending time training his pod of fish, all named the Larrys (the big guys) and the Garys - the gold fish. Every night is like an adventure at Sea World when the fish get fed. Hope you are having a great summer". Janice C. (June 2015)"

Garden pots

When we do pot arrangements, we can either specifically describe the pots to be installed or we will give you an installation allowance and a big list of pots to choose from. You can go and visit with your pots with a purchase allowance in hand and- if the selection fits the space, we will install it soon thereafter. Most quotes are turnkey and include procurement, delivery and full installation with a variety of hardy recurring color plant materials. Here's a tip: Bigger is almost always better.

Services Provided:

  • Planting Beds

    Planting is what you think of when you think of landscaping, and nobody does it better than we do. We bring perennials that recur every year, beefy, robust evergreen plants that last all year, and fabulously colorful deciduous shrubs and trees as accents. We have acres of plants to choose from and a uniquely flexible way of working that allows you to "see the plants before you start."

    As one of the largest purveyors of Cedar Grove compost in the county, we also rototill or hand-turn your bedsand fertilize all of your new plantings. Best of all, we guarantee it all for one year and offer you a discount card when the dust has settled to shop at the Nursery.

  • Miscellaneous

    We can also coordinate the construction of all types of outdoor amenities, from pools to sport courts and spas.

    Working with us to design this type of construction offers some distinct advantages for you as a client. We design the feature to fit within a budget framework and solicit competitive bids on your behalf as part of your landscape architectural design package.

    Most importantly, these features fit within the overall site design, integrating with planting and other construction. We show you how to stage this effort to minimize site damage and perform the construction efficiently.
