Grasshopper Gardens Landscaping Design Process

Initial Meeting

landscape designer plans

Grasshopper Gardens will first meet with you to discuss the needs and wants for your outdoor space. Some may be immediate or short term, while others may be long term or even someday wishes.

    While designing we will:

  • Take note of views – we look for both the views to maximize and those to hide.
  • Create spaces – we look to make the outdoor space flow with the existing architecture, while separating areas, such as utility areas, etc.
  • Vertical area – we take into consideration the use area above the ground plane (tree canopy, arbors, power lines, etc) and create shade or eliminate shade as needed. Also the grade of patios, raised planting beds, use of walls and steps is examined.
  • Planting choices and layout – the fun part! We consider seasonal bloom, contrasting and complimentary color, size, shape, texture, sun exposure, soil moisture and deer and pest resistance.
  • Lighting plan – if desired, we can create a scheme to extend the enjoyment time of your garden.
  • Maintenance requirements – we can design towards your level of desired upkeep.
  • Budget restrictions – we understand that budget is important during the design process.


plans for landscaping designAfter meeting and creating a design, we will present our ideas to you. The reward of our hard work! We love to impress our clients with our creative, unique and artistic design! We strive to use your thoughts and ideas and combine with our design expertise and construction knowledge to present the best possible plan for your property. We welcome thoughts and questions and will adjust the design, if needed, and we are off to the work of building and installing what we have imagined.

Build and Installation

Sometimes referred to as the work part, but according to our crews this is the fun part since they get to dig in the dirt, use equipment and install paving, stone and plants.


Grasshopper Gardens strives for your complete satisfaction with the project. We will continue to check in with our clients, even after the project is finished to ensure that the customer is still enjoying the project. A referral from our clients is the best compliment we can receive!

Just a note to say "thank you" and how pleased we were with the work you recently did on our property.  It was a pleasant experience from the start.

“Best fall cleanup (or spring cleanup) ever. Not a leaf or pine needle left on my lawn or garden beds. Their work was impeccable. If I was here when they left, I would've tipped them.”

-David O.
