Wantland Ink Landscape Architecture, PLLC

"Wantland ink landscape architecture firm in my experience exceeded my greatest expectations(and i am picky!) in designing an entire new landscape when i renovated my home. Not only did issac wantland design a creative,beautiful landscape he also designed and directed the design of a driveway, front brick walk, bluestone backyard terrace complete with built in tree,plant containers, >i was given complete and easily understood "blueprint" designs,an accurate,functional, drainage plan, and even a booklet of the plants,etc to be used with pictures so i could understand exactly the plan and learn at the same time! Issac will answer all questions in a prompt manner-in person, phone or email!! I have gotten weekly positive comments from neighbors,strangers,friends on the beautiful landscape design which enhances my home. Issac wantland truly cared and acted as if he was designing my project for himself! He was detailed oriented, cared about my taste in colors and worked successfully in choosing landscape plants,trees, that would be hearty and fit in with a nashville,tennessee environment. Issac had and has the skills necessary to work well with other people: myself, the client and in my case , a team of professionals including an architect and interior designer. In closing, i greatly respect issac wantland personally and professionally. It was a joy and pleasure to have him be my landscape architect. I get weekly comments from neighbors,strangers,friends on the beautiful landscape design which enhances my home. Issac wantland truly acted as if he was designing this project for himself; in others words, he cared greatly about every detail and was totally interested in any input i had as to color of plants, and finding the right plants for the environment here in nashville, tennessee. I was given i have tremendous respect for him personally and professionally. Issac is a great team player: he worked in total cooperation with my interior designer and home architect showing great flexibility,insight,to being a major factor in the creation of my dream home renovation."

Denali Exterior Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Nashville, TN
"Our screened in porch was in need of many repairs due to wood that had deteriorated. After looking at the area with Will at Denali, we decided that the damage was extensive enough that it made more sense to rebuild the porch using new materials. We talked with and received quotes from other companies but felt more confident in doing business with Denali. During the reconstruction process, we decided to have Will replace our paver patio which was also in need of repair. We were very pleased with the finished products. Having this area re-constructed was a huge improvement to the aesthetics of our home and surely increased value of the home. The work was started on time, debris was cleaned up on a daily basis and the date of completion was on time."

Allin Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Designers in Nashville, TN
"I knew George Allin would be my landscaper the minute I met him. Call it a gut feeling and I'm happy to say, my instincts were absolutely correct! We sat down that morning and mapped out a design and poured over various trees, bushes, and flowers that would be appropriate for our yard, with consideration of sun, shade, etc. A few days later we went shopping at a few different nurseries and picked out our selections. George and his team were so professional, on time, courteous, and dependable. He has since dropped by several times to check on things, called me with his concerns, and continues to direct us on watering and maintenance needs. I will absolutely work with Allin Landscaping again!"

Who Did Your Garden Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Nashville, TN
"I have never been more pleased with the ideas, knowledge and help that I received from Lois! She designed everything about our yard from hardscape, to landscape to irrigation to lighting and I absolutely love my yard! Her ideas saved money and made things look much more expensive than what they actually cost. I'm building another home right now and am using her on it as well! I wouldn't let anyone else do it! Absolutely overwhelmed by the results I've gotten from Lois!"

He's a true professional yet was still affordable and reasonable in making my landscape dreams come true. I highly recommend him."

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 Nashville, TN house. From there the Nashville 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 Tennessee 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 Nashville 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 Nashville, TN 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 Tennessee 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 Nashville, TN:


  • 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?
