Landscapes are so much more than just “gardens.” Plants, trees, flowers and shrubs chosen for you, by you, to provide year-round color and comfort are all part of the overall package. If you prefer a low-maintenance property or a garden where you can “dig in” to keep it in shape, we will work with you.
Our talented design team will recommend a delightful selection of plant varieties and combinations that not only thrive in our scorching summers but also bring a fresh and captivating look to your space all year round.
“Hardscape” includes patios, arbors, pergolas, landscaped walkways, planters, retaining walls, water features and even fire pits. We can create separate areas suited to you around your house, gardens and pool. You will be able to choose from a variety of brick, pavers, limestone, wood, gravel or concrete, to bring your vision to life. Your hardscaped and landscaped areas will join together into a creative show piece.
A proper grade will ensure water does not collect or pool. Gentle sloping permits water to follow its natural instinct and flow downward and away from your home. In South Louisiana, we can fill in dips, divets, holes and level uneven areas caused by wear and tear, storm damage and tree removal.

If you have a swamp, bayou, or moat in your yard, consider a drainage solution tailored to your needs. Subsurface drains, including French drains, can be installed to slope away from your home, redirecting water.
Additionally, we can connect your existing gutters to the drain system to prevent puddling and erosion near your home’s foundation. In some cases, proper grading or sloping of the land may be necessary to encourage water flow. Adding new sod will help maintain the new grade for many years to come.
