Garden Design

I believe that every garden or landscape regardless of size benefits from a well-thought and planned design. The process begins with the client’s desires and goals for the envisioned space. The initial meeting is where we can discuss the types of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees you like. We can suss out design elements that may fit your landscape: formal, cottage, native, prairie or woodland. On-site I will assess light, shade and water requirements that ultimately influence the design of the space.

From that first visit I will retreat to the drafting table for a sketch of the property. The drawn plan will include suggested trees, shrubs, perennials, placement of containers and any other elements for the design such as a flagstone path or a raised vegetable bed. Upon final approval of the plan, Merello-Sons will return to install the landscaping thus beginning the exciting and burgeoning life of your garden.
