Let's Get Started!

Gardens by the Yard is a full-service design, build and landscape care company. We specialize in creating custom Homescapes for busy clients who need a complete solution from initial concept design to the finished installation and follow-up care.

We excel at mid-sized to extensive Design - Build projects, and thoughtfully phased property master plans.

As the only winner of the Angie's List Super Service Award the past eight years in a row, our fine-tuned landscape Design - Build process produces exceptional results and delighted clients.

Our Client-Centric and Streamlined Processes

Create Beauty as Enjoyed

Through the Eyes of the Owner - You 



Our fine-tuned design process benefits from hundreds of installed client designs.  Supported by our proprietary Outdoor Palette™ system, the designer efficiently guides you to select the right mix of materials, plants and solutions. Our best-fit approach addresses your desires and property challenges, with consideration to your budget and priorities.  No firm can provide you with the same level of design personalization.

We have two primary approaches:

The Practical Approach stresses functional beauty with a close eye on the project budget and scope.  The design and installation incorporates essential elements with basic customization to make it special to your site and personal style. 

The Distinctive Approach spends more time working through design alternatives, customizing them with specialty plant and materials palettes.  Advanced visualization methods often allow a clear understanding of the design look.  


Either the Practical or Distinctive Design Approach

Allows You to Enjoy and Share Your Special Landscape
