Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
Jay Sifford Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"Jay did an incredible job in my yard. I have a lot of space and for a few years kept "trying" out a bunch of different plants. He asked me what I liked and didn't like. He came in looked at the space , measured and gave me his vision of the space and told me the plants he was recommending. I honestly feel he has a gift. I have been interested in gardening for years and know plants fairly well but Jay's vision was so much more than I ever imagined. He thought of colors, movement , space and seasons. Something no other garden designer has ever done ! The yard turned out beautifully ! I am excitedly awaiting the spring show of movement ,design , color and beauty. I have 2 more small areas I want him to do ... areas I have not liked since I moved in here and did them 6yrs ago. CAN"T WAIT to see what he will do !"

2STIX Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"I had a wonderful experience with Curtis on a backyard project that I had envisioned for an outdoor kitchen and connecting treehouse for my grandchildren. However, my reservations were that my backyard was not spacious enough and that the additions would be crowded and not up to my expectations. Curtis came out and flew a drone, took overhead photos and then created a wonderful design that showed me proportionate relationships and how it would look. The drawings were detailed and he was so willing to make any changes that I wished. He was so creative and a pleasure to work with. The end result was beyond my expectations and I attribute it to Curtis. He is a creative, energetic, dependable well-educated , young Christian man. I would highly recommend him to anyone with no reservations. Jack Evans, MD"

groundworks studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"Groundworks studio has provided landscape architecture design for my home over the last 4 years with the most recent consultation in 12/12. In addition to design, groundworks studio worked with me to select contractors and to supervise installation. It has been a perfect relationship with beautiful design work, collaboration, professionalism and great attention to detail. goundworks was very willing to work with me on an overall plan which was implemented in phases. I have been particularly delighted with the use of native plants. The use of a rain garden in my back yard has completely solved all of my drainage problems while adding a beautiful element to my landscape. The project began with a new driveway and courtyard including hardscape and plantings that provided the "bones" of my new garden. We then came back to landscape my front yard and a side yard. This was a large project over a long time frame, and the quality and professionalism has never wavered. It has been an absolute joy to work with groundworks and I recommend them without reservation."

J'Nell Bryson Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"J'Nell has created some of the most inspirational and unique landscapes I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. She is professional, timely and worked closely with me as she designed masterplans for my various homesites. I would not hesitate to recommend her services and you will not be disappointed. She graciously showed me how the plantings I had picked out would be disasterous down the road and gently pushed me to the plantings that I could appreciate now and many years from now. She is the best, as her many accolades prove."

Studio Cleary Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"My wife and I were building a home in Massachusetts and were struggling with the placement of shutters on the home. My wife happened across an article that Ted Cleary wrote for an architectural publication and, on a whim, emailed him for advice. Ted proceeded to respond with a 2+ page email, complete with visuals, as well as design tips. Something you would normally pay hundreds of dollars for, free of charge. We were so impressed with him that we contracted Studio Cleary to create a landscape Master Plan for our property. Not only were Ted's rates reasonable, but the interest he took in the project was so above and beyond what I would normally expect, and I have high expectations. Ted took the unprompted initiative to contact: our GC, town building inspector, landscape contractors and local landscape suppliers & nurseries. He was always responsive and available, providing renderings and designs for individual aspects of both the hardscape (outdoor fireplace, multi-tiered patio, walkways, retaining/seating walls) and softscape (grass, planting beds, species and exact placement of over 100 individual plantings). Additionally, he designed an overhang for our garage and an arbor/pergola for the patio. Ted has remained in contact throughout our project and still is an invaluable resource as we try to get our job to the finish line. He is easily the best individual we worked with on the building of our home, despite working remotely. I couldn't recommend Studio Cleary more highly, regardless of the scope or location of the project. Ted is in N. Carolina and we are in Massachusetts, and it couldn't have been easier. Ted is tremendous value and a really nice guy, it is a pleasure working with him. I will add photos once our work is complete this spring, but am happy to provide more specific detail in the meantime."

Solow Design Group
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"Solow Design Group served as landscape architect and project manager for our landscape and hardscape in a new home construction on a dreadful lot with water flow issues. We could not be more pleased with our experience. Plant selection and placement was excellent, and Solow Design Group honored our request to use as many indigenous plants as possible. The result is absolutely beautiful - a lush, low maintenance yard that is fully integrated with the native environment. We loved the written design plan so much that we framed it and now proudly hang it in our home. We recommend Solow Design Group without reservation."

The Outdoor Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Charlotte, NC
"I contacted David about an outdoor kitchen/patio that I was considering building. I had some ideas of my own but David brought me computer drawings of what his ideas were for my project. A picture certainly is worth a thousand words! This was extremely helpful for us a gave us a level of confidence in David's abilities. David took the job turn key which included removing existing sidewalk and 2 small planted areas that had irrigation. David's team expanded that area and built a stone patio with custom built area which he mounted a built in grill. David handled the irrigation, electrical and natural gas line installation. I am extremely satisfied with the finished product. We live in a time where we need to be very cautious about who we invite to our homes to work. I have found David and his crew to be be very courteous and trustworthy. David is a family man of high character/values and I highly recommend him for your project."

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 Charlotte, NC house. From there the Charlotte 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 North Carolina 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 Charlotte 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 Charlotte, NC 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 North Carolina 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 Charlotte, NC:

  • 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?
