Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
True Scape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
"True Scape Design landscaped four sides of our yard for us. They installed low maintenance perennials, like key Lime Cora Bells, wooly thyme, Japanese holly, slender Hinoki cypress, full moon maple,a Hydrangea, daylily and many more. They took out the grass along our driveway and put in blue, and grey stones of different sizes and worked with the rocks already on property. They created bluestone pathways for us. They installed a Roman paver patio and also graded a hill and installed beautiful risers so we can walk off the new extended composite deck and walk down the risers to a peaceful and beautiful patio. Our experience through all this considerable work was confidence in True Scape Design and the owner Joseph Garel. He takes responsibility for his team. They are friendly, aim to please and do a terrific job in an organized way. They are thorough and take individual responsibility to do an excellent job. Everyone works well together. True Scape Design worked with us on choices and design to get what we wanted. When we did not know right away, we were given lots of time and options to consider, for instance in picking out pavers and type of deck material. We felt they really understood what we wanted. The estimates were accurate and bills accurately itemized. There were so many options for spending less in some areas and more in others. The crew went above and beyond to be thorough, fixing a big dip in the grass in the front yard. They were glad to change a ground cover I did not like. They listened to us. My husband and I are thrilled and enjoying our new deck and patio, front and side yards. We appreciate the professionalism, competence, and integrity of True Scape Design and its owner, Joseph Garel . Lynn and Rick Keat"

Kim Rooney Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
"I hired Kim as my landscape architect after interviewing several other landscape architects and she stood out for two reasons. First she clearly had an eye for design and second she really knew what she was doing. In fact throughout the entire project I was able to witness Kim's amazing ability to be able to stay true to her sense of design and what would work and wouldn't in certain places while also being able to take into consideration my particular taste as a homeowner. Not only was my garden beautiful at the time of the project completion but its beauty has become even more evident over time. For example the plantings are filling in nicely and the trees and plants that were chosen to attract birds have done just that. As a result I am enjoying listening to the sound of birds singing over listening to the sound of traffic which is all I seemed to be able to hear before. I have also been able to enjoy my garden throughout the year as Kim carefully selected plantings that would allow me to have a beautiful garden (both front and back) during all seasons and that is exactly what happened. Many times this past year I thought about how thankful I was that I chose Kim to do the work. I have received and continue to receive many compliments as well. Thank you Kim for doing such an amazing job!"

Banyon Tree Design Studio
Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
"Lisa did a wonderful job. We redid our backyard from scratch and we love it. As we got started, she met with us and really listened to our preferences. She was enthusiastic about the examples/pictures that we had cut out or found in magazines. She incorporated many elements from our initial meetings into several draft designs. It was a tough choice and we ended up choosing one plan but then mixing some of the ideas from one of the other plans. Lisa was always professional, creative and extremely helpful. Our goal was to get a backyard that people would want to explore and enjoy- she accomplished all of that and more."

Erin Lau Landscape Design- Seattle
Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
"Erin completely redesigned and installed our front garden and did an excellent and artistic job. We had an old-fashioned front yard with grass, which needed lots of water and weeding. She redesigned and sculpted the front to remove the grass, add sustainable and lovely plants, which have saved us lots of money on water bills and also made our front yard more attractive. We've received many compliments from neighbors and plan to use her services in the future - for our back yard. Erin is professional, skilled and was a pleasure to work with throughout the project."

Terra Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
"We worked with Leanne of Terra Design on a complete redesign of our hardscape and landscape. Leanne was absolutely wonderful to work with from start to finish. She listened to our ideas and worked hard to incorporate our families needs into the design of the yard and patio spaces. She was respectful of our budget and was diligent in staying on top of the deadlines. We were doing a complete remodel of the interior of our home at the same time and she worked famously with our general contractor. Her knowledge of plant material is very impressive. She brought a binder to our meeting with pictures and information on each and every plant and we chose them with much care. I enjoyed being a part of the decision making process and love walking through my yard and knowing the names and story behind each plant. Leanne introduced us to a fabulous landscape maintenance company and a fine gardner so we can maintain and keep our yard looking wonderful. We have a full set of detailed drawings of our yard, a summary of plant material and a maintenance plan. I would highly recommend Leanne and Terra Design."

SCJ Studio Landscape Architecture
Landscape Architects and Designers in Seattle, WA
"Mark initially presented several design ideas nicely suited for our relatively small yard. We arrived at a final design through a collaborative approach where Mark listened to our aesthetic and functional preferences, and successfully incorporated them into the plan. Our small yard presented some unique challenges that Mark was able to help us navigate through. We would describe Mark as being easy to work with, very talented, and professional in his approach. We are very pleased with the final results of our 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 Seattle, WA house. From there the Seattle 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 Washington 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 Seattle 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 Seattle, WA 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 Washington 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 Seattle, WA:


  • 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?
