Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
GardenWise
Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
"I so enjoyed working with each member of the team at GardenWise, throughout our project -- good listeners, professional, kind, and responsive, not to mention talented and creative designers with excellent problem-solving approach, and terrific craftsmen. Estimates and budgets were accurate. The attention to detail and commitment to quality were superb - - even re-doing something I had said we "could live with" but they could not! That really, really impressed me. The project included a new driveway, lots of stone wall work, a new patio, water feature, and several new and renovated planting beds. I am eager to see how the plants 'return" in the coming summer and how they mature to fulfill the envisioned design."

blue house gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
"We had just bought our house and did not have the funds to improve our yard with a high end landscaping design company. Rather we had muscle (my husband) and I to do the labor. Enter Maureen Robinson. Respectful of our shoestring budget, Maureen worked with us to develop a garden design that allowed us to enhance the layout that was already in place. She helped design our backyard which was essentially dirt and our front walkway. She helped us choose flowers that allows our garden to be in bloom from April - November. Neighbors look at our yard enviously. Maureen works with the client's vision and offers great guidance. In our case, we were new to gardening, so Maureen both educated us about plants and helped us figure out what we liked. She helped us figure out our vision. She is delight to work with and knows landscape design very well."

Scott Brinitzer Design Associates
Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
"As we passed the initial design phases on our kitchen, it became clear that we were hitting our program requirements for light, windows and enhanced access to what had been an all but unusable back yard, our architect Jon Hensley recommended that we engage Scott’s firm to work on the garden. The kitchen intends to draw the outdoors in with floor wall and ceiling details that cross the room’s boundaries at windows and doors. It would have been a travesty to build a beautiful kitchen and not have a landscape design that perfectly complements it. Scott and his team have been wonderful to work with. Careful attention was given both to the kitchen design and input from my wife Katie. We now live with this garden, it is part of our daily life. The Kitchen renovation anchors the house and makes it our home. The garden anchors the property and justifies the kitchens presence. I look forward to future projects with Scott and his associates."

GreenHeart LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
"I knew of her reputation as a passionate landscape designer by word of mouth, and asked her for some input aimed at resolving a drainage problem. Her response was both highly effective on a problem solving level, and as an added benefit, on an aesthetic level. As the years pass, her design seems to wrap itself around us like loving arms. I recommend her without reservation. Clifford Wheeler"

Geoscape, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
"We just finished our first project with Geoscape, but we knew well before it was finished that we would be happy with the end result. Not only do we highly recommend Geoscape, we are starting our second project and will begin working plans for a third and fourth over the next few months. By giving us questions to consider and showing us visually how they have handled other problematic areas along with their innovative ideas, Ken quickly grasped what we were trying to achieve but did not know how to describe ourselves. Geoscape delivered high value by advising us how to use our resources for high gain. They helped us understand where to make trade-offs to get the optimal result and stay within budget. He presented multiple options within our price range and thoroughly pointed out the pros and cons of each. The detailed explanations enabled us to make the right decisions all along the way. The other aspect of value was their willingness to work with what we had when practical vs. starting completely anew without compromising the outcome desired. The project management aspect was professional and dependable. They kept us informed about when people would and wouldn’t be onsite and what to expect as the work progressed. Ken walked us through major stages to explain what was done and why. In addition to Ken’s personal attention, there was always someone onsite that could answer any questions that we had. Although more creative solutions were offered, it never felt like pressure to upsell but rather help us visual the capabilities. Along with this, he pointed out how the current project might affect future projects to ensure we made informed decisions. We look forward to our next projects with Geoscape. Craig and Kandi Molyneaux"

Grow Landscapes, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Arlington, VA
"The crew came out and did a great job pulling out and replanting the foundation planting at my home. The pulled out 7 old azaleas and 3 newer ones, The 3 they replanted in another area for me. The new planting was done quickly and all the material appears to be doing great. The Paperbark Maple is of excellent quality and well shaped. The crew was courteous and polite. The nandinas and hydrangeas used in the new planting were of excellent quality and size. This was not contractor grade material, true nursery stock quality."

"Don is a creative landscape architect that my wife and I have found to be resourceful and diligent in planning our backyard pool, patio, hot tub, deck and golf green. He spent time with us upfront to understand our needs and although the plan grew in scope as we became more aware of what our backyard could become, we are very happy with the result! "

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 Arlington, VA house. From there the Arlington 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 Virginia 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 Arlington 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 Arlington, VA 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 Virginia 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 Arlington, VA:


  • 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?
