VanElders Design Studio - Stantec Kansas City
Landscape Architects and Designers in Kansas City
"We recently embarked on a large construction project intended to transform our backyard into our own private entertainment oasis. We already had established mature landscaping on our property that looked tired, ordinary, and unimaginative. We needed a creative landscape architect to develop a design that would be unique, colorful, and hardy to complement our new pool, spa and patio. We desired a professional who had an in-depth knowledge of plants that would thrive in all of the diverse settings our property offered, understood accent lighting design, and was a good listener who could implement what we liked. Kelly provided exactly what we were seeking and was a pleasure to work with throughout the design process. He was "hands on" involved during the installation and worked seamlessly with the landscape installer. We also utilized his design skills for the entire property which transformed our home into a place we could enjoy and be proud of. We would highly recommend Kelly to anyone wanting a landscape architect who listens and creates beautiful landscapes. You will be thrilled with your choice."

The find the owner very accommodating and knowledgeable so few months after, I've decided to contact them and have them worked on my fireplace and kitchen,, I was thinking those were needed to get done first.

Aesthetic Outdoor LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Kansas City
"We have worked with Aaron for several years, starting by tearing out everything in the front and slowly working our way around the house to give an integrated & coordinated landscape design for our corner lot. He not only is creative, but also helps us stay within our budget by making suggestions that are smart choices. He has re-landscaped the front and side so far, and we're currently working on the other side and framing in the open space under the deck in the back. He also does seasonal decorating for us and takes care of plant maintenance. In all areas, he and his staff are professional and courteous. Our neighbors and friends have loved the changed landscape and our neighbor is now a customer also! We thoroughly recommend him and his work. We will continue to work with his company with the maintenance program once the design work is complete. Keep in mind that the plants in the pictures are young and will mature, but he will keep them in shape for us!"

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 Kansas City 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 Kansas City 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 architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Kansas City:


  • 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?
