Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Columbus
Outdoor Space Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Columbus
"I first met Will Lehnert at a House & Garden show. He was strictly a landscape architect as opposed to a design/build that always seems a little incestuous to me. He was all about design and the projects he displayed had more style and panache then your typical project, so our journey began. The plan was to add a rear deck and nano-glass wall to the house that would allow the indoor space to flow seamlessly into the outdoor area, somewhat unusual for a non-tropical locale such as Ohio. He got the vision immediately and quickly brought the concept to life. He listened to not only what I was asking for but other details that he interestingly incorporated into the design.....New England style rock walls reminiscent of home and a custom hammock that I remarked in passing was my favorite spot at my summer house. The goal was to provide a secluded yard from the surrounding urban environment...an oasis within the city....while providing entertainment options. He incorporated different venues into the design...the shaded porch, sun deck, fire pit, hammock retreat, grass area for the dog, outdoor kitchen. He worked with the house architect and contractor and suggested a barn door for the garage that was also being reconstructed as part of this project so that a party could flow from the kitchen to the great room to the porch to the yard and right into the garage for additional space or in case of inclement weather. What this actually did was to tie the entire project together and created a center point...house, yard, garage. In fact, this worked just as envisioned. Upon completion, I hosted a large party and turned the garage into an arcade with pool table and other games which also then connected to a food truck to service dinner. As it would happen of course, a light rain did fall briefly and people moved into the garage and main house and the party went on uninterrupted. He also assisted in issuing the RFP and selecting the landscape and lighting contractors. He worked very well with them directly so that I didn't have to get in the middle of it. He also coordinated with the garage contractor and interior designer (yeah, I had a lot going on simultaneously!) In the end, the house was featured in a prestigious House Tour and was a hit. More importantly, I love the space. Anyways, my point here is that Will not only got my vision but listened to other aspects of my life and created a final product that far exceeded my expectations and original idea. He has been great to work with and highly recommend Outdoor Space Design."

McCullough's Landscape & Nursery
Landscape Architects and Designers in Columbus
"Nick McCullough will exceed your every expectation. He is an excellent listener, creative mind, personable, and has excellent follow through. My husband and I began our relationship with Nick several years ago, as he transformed a tired patio space into a beautiful, private refuge....we feel like we're on vacation in our new outdoor room. Our experience was so pleasurable with Nick that we have continued to work with him on improving other areas of our property...hardscape, perennial gardens, landscape lighting and seasonal planters. In addition, his wonderful team can take care of pruning and pest control to maintain a beautiful landscape, and protect your investment. Nick is an excellent communicator, and any questions or problems that may arise during a project will be handled quickly and professionally. I recommend McCullough to all of my friends, and anyone I meet who is looking for landscape design. Thank you for making our property so beautiful."

He was very focused on a unique design to fit our needs. We enjoy our patio daily!"

Hedge Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Columbus
"We worked with Nathan to create our ourdoor living space. The design he did for us incorporated everything we asked for - It was nice that he actually listened to what we wanted. If you can dream it, he can create it - and he even developed a 3D video so we didn't have to just imagine what it is was goint to look like. We were actually able to see exactly what it would look like before a single brick had been laid. Andrew and Blake make a huge difference during the construction process. Blake anwered any question we had along the way. During each phase of the project their team really took the time to get to know what we were looking for - Nathan created the perfect design for us, then Blake installed the project efficiently and professionally."

Jacobs Grant Design ltd
Landscape Architects and Designers in Columbus
"Sue Grant was wonderful to work with. She took our dream of having a stone patio outside of our screened in porch and worked with us until she had a designed a beautiful plan which was perfect for us. Now instead of 2 small decks which weren't connected, we have a beautiful outdoor living space that is perfect for larger parties, but also intimate enough for a small family gathering. Sue helped us find the right contractor and she worked with that contractor to make sure our plan turned out just the way she had designed it. Sue was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend Jacob Grant Design ltd."

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 Columbus house. From there the 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 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 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 Columbus 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 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 designers: .

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Columbus:


  • 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?
