As landscape designers, we focus on the exterior of the home and we are often asked what to plant in a client’s backyard.

The backyard is a space of its own. It draws energy from the family’s lifestyle. How much maintenance are you willing or able to provide? What is your purpose or vision for this space? Will you entertain? Will you create a privacy border that blocks out the rest of the neighborhood? Will it be a space your kids bring friends home to all the years of their childhood? Will you cook outdoors or host Sunday night football parties? How much seating do you need? Is there a customized space for your pets? Do you like curved bed edges with charming brick patterns or modern, straight textiles that represent a clean exterior? The questions are endless.
