Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
Wagner Hodgson
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"This project in Vermont was my dream come true home and I wanted to incorporate everything that I wanted in to this project. Keith and Jeff were included early on in the planning of how the house and landscape worked together to integrate in to the natural landscape. There were alot of elements to work with - both the intimate scale close to the house and then the views out to the meadows and the lake. Any time we needed them for a meeting they were immediately on board. They stuck with the budget and offered suggestions on how to reduce costs and yet still meet our aesthetic requirements. They had a great relationship with our contractor and builder and I felt we worked really well together. I highly recommend them and will use them again on future projects. "

Landshapes
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"We were extremely pleased (blown away!) by the quality, professionalism, and speed to which our wall and new front walk were completed! Then they came back and brought heavy boulders and lighting to complete the entire front landscape. We plan to work with them in the future, which says it all! Highly recommend!"

Broadleaf Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"Broadleaf Landscape Architecture embodies balance, foresight, & grace into their landscape renewal projects. Balancing stone, wood, perennials, and annuals is an art and knowing what it's going to look like in 3, 5, 10 years is a science. Broadleaf maintains the property thoughout the growing season, assuring a continual natural beauty of color and scents."

di Stefano Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"I've worked with diStefano Landscaping for years on a number of projects, both hardscape (patios, walkways) and plantings. They're great to work with: Friendly people who work hard and know what they're doing. They stand behind their work."

Knauf Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"Cindy created a landscape that exceeded all our goals. We hired her early in the planning process for our retirement home so she could collaborate with our architect. Using her extensive knowledge of native plants, her design expertise, and excellent relationships with local contractors, she created the perfect setting for our house. We wanted to blur the lines between inside and outside, frame the near, middle and distant views, and create a sense of harmony and serenity. Cindy incorporated natural elements, and chose plantings for their year-round color, shapes and textures. We recommend her highly as a professional who will listen and can fulfill your dreams."

Zachary Berger Associates, Ltd.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"Zach Berger Associates has ben designing and maintaining the landscaping of our property for the last several years. He has developed plans, modified them with our input, and then purchased, installed, and supervised each project. The grounds around our house have been transformed. Zach is an artist and he hires only the best people to work out the details. Zach created rock walls and steps that not only stabilized erosion on one side of our home, but provide an elegant transition from the front to the back yards. He hired a master craftsman to build a rock wall along the front entry of the house that is natural and truly lovely, and progress continued on this wall even in the midst of one of the snowiest winters in a decade. Zach hires people who get the job done and take pride in their work. One of the things I've appreciated the most is Zach's maintenance of our property. He anticipates what we might need and schedules work for each season that we can't manage ourselves. He comes out to personally check on the property and has a wonderful relationship with the people he hires. I can trust his judgment on plantings, on the design, and on the execution of his vision. I give him my highest recommendation."

Susan Els Garden & Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"Susan has done an incredible job landscaping the front of our home. The design fits the profile of our home and our needs for privacy in our neighborhood. The installation was on time and on budget. I would not hesitate to recommend her (in fact I already have). She is flexible, listens to the client, and incorporates design ideas of the homeowner."

Ginkgo Design, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"We would highly recommend Ginkgo's design team for anything from a small garden redesign to a large, full landscape structural design which included rock, walkways, ponds, fountains, trees and gardens - they can do it all. Perhaps the real strength of Ginkgo Design lies in their breath of abilities coupled with a real skill for listening to the client's tastes, needs and vision. Easy to work with and reasonable rates... honesty, I can't find one reason why you shouldn't give them a call."

Paintbox Garden
Landscape Architects and Designers in Burlington
"We hired Charlotte Albers to help us design a garden in a totally open field on our property. Charlotte began the process by coming out to meet us to gather information about our ideas for the project. She then invited us to her home to see the kinds of vegetation that might be most suitable for our garden. After these meetings we received a draft of a landscaping plan for the area. We continued to dialogue with Charlotte over the next few weeks, until the final plan was completed. Charlote was wonderful at combining her knowledge with our vision to come up with the basis for what turned out to be an absolutely amazing Asian garden. The experience of working with Charlotte was wonderful from beginning to end, and we have only the highest regard for her expertise, sense of design and professionalism."

What does a landscape architect do?


The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Burlington house. From there the landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?


A landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Burlington will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Burlington:


  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
