Arbutus offers an individualized garden design service at a reasonable price. We design to meet needs and desires, but we also provide the elements that make a garden personal and special.
Our design style centers on establishing a structural basis of woody shrubs and trees to provide year-round interest in the landscape (check out our plant pages to see images of some of the plants we favor). We choose plants best suited for the exposures and soil types available so they can thrive with minimal care. Lawns are de-emphasized in favor of shrub and perennial groupings that require less management and provide more niches for a balanced garden ecology.
We can design for the blank slate of a brand-new home or transform a long-established landscape. Our basic fee includes a site visit (up to 2 hours), detailed discussion with the client, a set of hand-drawn design maps, design report and plant lists.
