Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, WA
Paradise Restored Landscaping & Exterior Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, WA
"Paradise Restored came highly recommended to me. I needed to replace an aging and ugly fence. Micah consulted with me and absolutely understood my preferences for a fence. He even accommodated my request to do this project in early January when we would be away from our home. Normally I would not trust a company to do a project of this nature without supervising them. But I knew our project was in great hands with Micah! We returned home to a gorgeous and sturdy fence! Highly recommend this company!"

Seasons Garden Design LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, WA
"Vanessa is an extraordinary person and a joy to work with. She listens to her clients and the result is that each job is an individual accomplishment, unlike some whose projects all look alike! I highly recommend Seasons Garden Design to everyone I know (and those I don't!)"

Rain Garden Nursery LandscapeMakeoverDesignStaging
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, WA
"I was the Chairman of the Rose Farm Museum when I hired Scott, who lived on the site and provide landscaping and maintenance duties. When he came on board, the site had been badly neglected and over a span of several years Scott completely did a great job of upgrading the 2 acre site: planting new gardens, cleaning up overgrowth, and expanding the grass areas. He is an easy person to work with and has a wealth of knowledge in landscape design. I would highly recommend him. Bob Higgins"

The White Pear, Design & Build
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, WA
"I had lived in my house for 14 years when I hired Holly Stickley of The White Pear to design my backyard. I had never worked with a designer before, so I had a lot of questions. Holly answered all of them as she walked me through the process. She and her team worked tirelessly in the demolition and construction phase, removing all the grass and creating beautiful berms and pathways. In addition to utilizing plants and materials that I already had, she introduced me to exciting new plants. The following year, The White Pear transformed my front yard. I love the serene Northwest/Asian atmosphere that The White Pear created!"

Drake's 7 Dees Landscaping & Garden Center

"We used Drake from Drakes 7 Dees after interviewing a couple of landscape architects. From the start he was tuned into what our idea was on redoing our established yard. Then he enhanced it with his vision. He was easy to work with and had a wonderful crew that implemented the plan. We would not only highly recommend him but we also use him again if we do any additional work."

Barbara Hilty Landscape Design LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Vancouver, WA
"Our dental practice, Burlingame Dental Arts, hired Barbara to re do our landscaping. The plan she designed was so beautiful and improved the look of the building immensely. Barbara is very creative and able to think outside the box. We had some difficult logistic issues with the back of our office and she solved these problems easily. The job came in on budget and we are really pleased with the result. I liked working with Barbara so much that I hired her to do the landscape design for my home. She listens, she delivers what she says she is going to, and she is an absolute pleasure with whom to work. I can highly recommend Barbara Hilty Landscape Design!"

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 Vancouver, WA house. From there the Vancouver 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 Vancouver 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 Vancouver, 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.

  • 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?
