LandCrafters, Inc
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milwaukee, WI
"Have used LandCrafters twice and have been very happy with the process and the finished product both times. What I have especially appreciated has been the company's attention to detail and focus on getting it right -- at times they recommended adding things I didn't realize I needed (a couple extra lights here, more drainage there), but other times they convinced me why a cheaper option or forgoing something altogether was the better choice. And Dave Guthery, my project lead, was always accessible and willing to stop over on a moment's notice if I had questions or concerns and he continues to offer suggestions about upkeep and general maintenance to this day. Overall, highly recommended for projects small or large."

Creative Landscape Designs, L.L.C..
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milwaukee, WI
"Lynn really went the extra mile! My yard had a number of drainage opportunities along with a disjointed lot due to a recent garage addition and new concrete. So, she had a number of challenges to deal with. Lynn consulted with a number of contractors and visited my lot more than five times with landscapers before she recommended partners, drew the plan, and secured the time slot. She made sure to be on site almost every day making sure the plan was on track and we addressed any design changes with no problems and worked within our budget. I decided to secure and plant some of the plants myself and she was very open to this. The yard is beautiful -- people actually stop their cars and get out to admire our yard -- the design is really out of the box and not "cookie cutter". Creative Landscape Designs was incredible through the whole process and I highly recommend Lynn and her contractor partners."

Wandsnider Landscape Architects
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milwaukee, WI
"Wandsnider Landscape Architects contacted me last year about giving their company a fresh look. I wound up redesigning their logo, website and photographed several projects for them. They are a real pleasure to work with. Bill the owner is a great guy and talented artist. One thing that was very unique to me is his landscape artist renderings. They’re beautiful. They’re hand drawn and colored in a way that reminds me of Santiago Calatrava's watercolor studies. Heidi is my primary contact there and she’s very sweet. She has a great sense of humor and knows how to get work done. While on location for a couple photoshoots, I spoke with some of their clients. All of them had good things to say about Bill and his team. One of them even said they’ve been working with Bill for over 20 years."

Novotny Landscaping LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milwaukee, WI
"I recently have had the opportunity to collaborate on a professional level with the owner of Novotny Landscaping LLC and have had nothing but great experiences. As an art educator and free lance photographer, I have taken photographs for the jobs done by Novotny Landscaping, and in turn they have helped to install an artistic landscape in the entryway of our school building. Between parent and administrative comments, the feedback has been nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a new landscaping project, artistic outdoor living space, or even something as simple as lawn maintenance."

Studio Mira, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Milwaukee, WI
"I had the pleasure of working with Patty of Studio Mira. Patty helped me design a contemporary bathroom oasis. It's a space that continues to bring a smile to my face every time I walk in. The bathroom had been a small, dark, cold space that you couldn't wait to leave. There was a combined shower tub and a small double vanity. Our desire was to expand the bathroom by using some under utilized space in our master bedroom. We wanted to separate the tub and shower as well as expand our vanity. We were able to achieve this goal and surpass our expectations based on the work Patty did alongside our construction company, Story Hill Renovations. Patty had a great attention to detail. She kept detailed notes as well as detailed plans. Her skills allowed the project to run smoothly even when there were unforeseen bumps along the road. We are truly grateful to Patty of Studio Mira and Tom of Story Hill Renovations for the amazing job they did to give us a stunning bathroom oasis."

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 Milwaukee, WI house. From there the Milwaukee 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 Wisconsin 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 Milwaukee 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 Milwaukee, WI 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 Wisconsin 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 Milwaukee, WI:


  • 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?
