LANDSCAPE DESIGN & LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE:
No work begins until our design team does in-depth analysis of your site, from climatic factors, soils, geology, and hydrology, to existing vegetation and architectural elements, then even the history of your home - all the time keeping your final vision in mind.
The experienced design team at LCC LANDSCAPES will ensure that all hard scape complements the native geology of the site as well elements of your home, for example, the bricks used to pave a walkway or patio will match the brick of your home.
We also design architectural landscape structures, such as gazebos and trellises, that match the major architectural features of your home: the trellis in your rose garden can be made to complement the arch way or your front door; fence posts and deck rails can be constructed of the same material.
The most important part of any landscape design is the plant material. We first work with the canopy layer of existing old growth trees, then the next layer of smaller under story shade and ornamental trees that blends with the canopy layer. Next our design involves the shrub layer of flowering shrubs, and finally, the piece de resistance, the herbaceous layer of flowering perennials. Throughout the design process, close attention is paid to the flowering patterns of all plant material chosen, ensuring therefore, that you will always have at least one species of plants in bloom from February until October. We take our attention to detail one step further by closely examining the fall leaf color of all plants, in order to create a beautiful palette of color, next carry on into the winter interest of the plant therefore a landscape design may still provide unique color throughout the winter months.
All these factors tie into one landscape design to create a beautiful landscape and to provide your landscape with a humanizing factor like no other landscape design can. LCC LANDSCAPES works to combine the beauty of nature with the design and craftsmanship of man to provide you our valued client with the best possible landscape design.
