Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
Cat Valand Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"We have been so pleased with our new landscape design by Cat Valand Landscape Design. Our shrubs had been planted over 30 years ago (when our house was originally built), and they were either too large for the area, or too scraggly because of age. Cat Valand gave our home a new "facelift" and was so easy to work with. One side of our yard slopes down and we have struggled with keeping dirt in place; Cat immediately realized we needed a small retaining wall; she helped us pick out the stone for the wall and had it installed. She made arrangements for our old plants to be removed, selected new ones, and had them installed. Cat was at our home when she said she would be....each day the workers were here, they were on time and cleaned up their work area. We have a lot of people in and out of our home and have received many complimentary comments on our new landscaping. Our home looks very welcoming! We would highly recommend Cat Valand Landscape Design."

Garden Environments
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"We decided to hire Garden Environments after watching the mulch and soil on the side of our house swept away again and again after a rain fall. Our neighbours hired them and were very satisfied with their work, so we set up an appointment to see what could be done for our property . From beginning to end, this project could not have gone better. The detailed plans, the excellent work done in a timely manner, the plantings, and follow up were all done with care and professionalism. Shortly after the swale was completed, a severe thunderstorm came through and dislodged some of the plantings. A call was made and they were out to our house to fix the damage and prevent it from happening again. This is a company that takes pride in their work and stands by their work. It was pleasure having Garden Environments work its magic. We highly recommend them."

Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"Ron was very helpful in allowing us to envision and select an overall plan for our pool house, pool and overall backyard landscape design project. He drew out several detailed design options which enabled us to select the one that suited our needs best. Ron was very professional and a pleasure to work with."

Artistry In Plants
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"This past spring I engaged Artistry in Plants to design a garden of perennials in my front and side yard. Wendi is not only a work horse, she comes in with creative energy and expertise that I could NEVER replicate on my own! She picked out plants that are natural to our area, with colors that blended together beautifully. She went beyond the call of duty to keep my costs to a minimum, advising me of local sales and even coming with me on a couple of occasions to pick out plants that fit my personal taste and objectives. I love working with a company that is so into it for the love of gardening as opposed to a love of money! Can't go wrong with Artistry in Plants! :-)"

Lotus Designs Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"I have utilized Gail to do four different landscape designs for personal homes and commercial. Her designs are reflective of nature, easy to maintain, yet beautiful. She really listens to what the consumer wants and while conscious of the environment, she will make suggestions that are a best fit for the project. I would highly recommend her to any home or business owner!"
- Amy Natt
Down to Earth Designs, Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"We chose Down to Earth out of 5 landscape companies we interviewed in North Raleigh. Of all that we met, they were the only one's that really listened to specific needs and some special design requests. That made the difference and we rarely give 5 stars for anything. The design process helped us realize a direction we had not considered but chose for the final plan. We started with a general target budget to plan within, then once we narrowed down our choices they gave us complete estimates for all the different parts. This was to a phased approach but it the bullet and had them I stall all the same time. The install crews were pleasant and professional, always cleaning up the the end of the day. I know we made the right decision to have Ben and Dave handle our complicated project. It's refreshing to see customer service done right!"

Integrated Ecological Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"The woodland garden, cold frame and backyard pool project (refer to pictures) in Pinehurst are projects that were created by Integrated Ecological Design. We could not have been more pleased with the custom design done by Glenn Bradley, or his management of these comprehensive projects. His professionalism and design skills are second to none and his coordination of all of the related service providers, was masterfully accomplished, within the budget allotted and on schedule as planned. 4 years later we remain thrilled with the results and miss interacting with Glenn. Kudos and many thanks!!!"

Carolina Garden Company
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"I called Carolina Garden Company to come to my new Real Estate Office and design a landscape plan. They gave me an appointment time and showed up promptly. Their design was great and their execution of their plan was awesome. They stayed inside their budget, always showed up on time and completed the project ahead of schedule. Why can't all company's perform with this kind of professionalism?"
- Buck Dickerson
Old North State Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"We did a major landscape renovation in our yard. Old North State Landscape consulted with us, designed the features, and handled the entire project. They were thorough, professional, and creative. They did everything we expected and more. And, they are genuinely nice people! We were very pleased with the outcome of our project, which has a lot of stonework, a new pool, pavers, flag stones, a new open-air deck, etc."
- Gerald Townsend
Renz Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Designers in Raleigh
"Adding a paver patio to the front of a house in Cary, NC was an amazing concept I came up with to give the small ranch home some attractive curb appeal. The next step was to hire an experienced company to execute this idea. In comes Renz Landscapes. My wife and I couldn't be happier with the design, project completion time, budget, communication and final product. We made A LOT of money on this home and the front renovations definitely helped with multiple offers and setting our home apart from all the others in our community. We couldn't have done it without Curt Renz and his team and some pictures to show you before and after (painting done by another contractor)! You won't be disappointed in working with Renz from start to finish!"

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 Raleigh 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 Raleigh 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 Raleigh:

  • 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?
