We primarily serve Connecticut and New York though we are available for and have done consultation and design work throughout the U.S.
We help clients choose the optimal site on their land for a home or pool, tennis court, driveway, outbuildings, or simple garden. If yours is an existing home, we offer design ideas for changing or improving features based on your lifestyle and the lay of the land.
We will walk your property and advise you on clearing, pruning, feeding, pest control, or transplanting needs. We'll tell you if it's worth your time to transplant a specimen or if it would be better to buy a new plant. If you need, we are happy to recommend other reputable specialists whose services complement ours.
Our philosophy is simple: We listen to you. We do not impose our style on your property. We come with no preconceptions, but rather a very good eye, extensive formal training, and years of experience. We ask questions and make suggestions: How do you live? What do you want in a landscape or garden design? The designs we create reflect these elements while integrating your home's architectural style within your landscape. From a simple entry garden to an entire property, we will transform your outside space to reveal its character and beauty.
Sometimes, before a garden goes in, some building changes are needed. We are expert at designing porches, patios, decks, pergolas, gazebos, arbors, outbuildings, paths, stonewalls and driveways. If the project needs a licensed architect or structural engineer, we work with reputable professionals. We work on Auto Cad for efficiency and the ability to share files with surveyors, engineers, architects, and builders.
Spring Lake Garden Design's landscape crew is experienced and most have been with us a long time. They take pride in the work we do; they are hardworking and reliable. We install our own designs, or if distance is a factor, we will oversee the installation with a local landscaping company to insure the project is completed to your satisfaction and local building codes. We subcontract with licensed electricians, plumbers, carpenters, pool companies, irrigation companies, and masons. Spring Lake Garden Design Incorporated is fully licensed and insured. All of the subcontractors we work with are as well.
