Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, VA
Geoscape, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, 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"

Doug Bibb's Landscape Company
Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, VA
"Doug Bibb's Landscape Company is hands down the best landscape company with whom I have had the pleasure of working since I moved to the Northern Virginia area. Why is Doug Bibb's Landscape Company so good? Glad you asked. They offer timely, professional and friendly service. They offer design plans, horticulture advice, they plant only the best shrubs, trees and flowers. They are honest. They guarantee their work, they follow up on jobs checking plants, making sure they are being watered, and they are courteous and quick about call backs. They also offer maintenance. They offer budge friendly jobs, and long term plans. I don't even call anyone else. I have been working with Doug Bibb's Landscape company for 10 years. That speaks volumes. During that time I have tried two other landscape companies in the area and went right back to Doug Bibb. He is the only one who really means what he says and does what he says he's going to do. In addition, and in conclusion, Doug and his team, that includes an very knowledgable designer, Brittany, really look at and study the yard at different times of day to see where the light patterns are. They take note of what seems to grow heartily in the particular soil of the yard, the designer takes into consideration they type of plants used so the yard looks good all year long. And she spends time to consider groupings of colors. Because of their hard work I now have one of the most beautiful yards in the neighborhood. I get so many complements from passers-by, it's wonderful. Thank you."

Magee Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, VA
"It is a pleasure to recommend Magee Design. I sought 5 quotes for hard and landscape work for the front yard. Although two were less expensive, John's design took the project to the next level for just a little more. For example, he introduced curves to the walk way using materials that better matched the house exterior. He introduced a handmade dry stack retaining wall and natural Virginia plants. The result - our new front yard was featured by the National Wildlife Federation garden tour in May. We could not be more pleased with how this project went and what a pleasure it was to work with Mr. Magee."

Revolutionary Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, VA
"Dave is now working on a second project for us after a terrific job on his first project. He first designed a patio that extends out from our deck. By doing this he opened up our entertaining area tremendously while providing a new view of a small pond we have had for ages but only enjoyed from the screened in porch. He also redesigned our front walk, doubling the width, adding a sitting area and really finishing off a front that was bland to start. It has provided a more formalized look but still warm and welcoming. Next up, an outdoor Kitchen. We are excited to work with Dave again."

Professional Grounds Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, VA
"Going from Drab to Stunning in two Days. When it was time to "do something about our ugly lawn" I thought I wanted to have a professional company do the work. There is a community nearby where I always liked the landscaping so I asked the managers who did it. I contacted Professional Grounds and Marta and her team turned my lawn into a showplace. I'm super satisfied."

Land & Water Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Reston, VA
"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 Reston, VA house. From there the Reston 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 Reston 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 Reston, 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 Reston, 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?
