“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Why Should I Hire a Landscape Professional to Design My Garden ?
Experienced gardeners have no problem deciding when to plant their roses, how deep to plant their tulip bulbs, or how much to water their geraniums. However, when it comes to garden design, even the most seasoned gardeners begin to sweat. Why spend weeks trying to find the perfect spot for a new shrub? Why waste an entire winter sketching plans for a new perennial garden? Why agonize for years about how to reconfigure your front walk? That’s what the professional garden designers at Milestone are here for!
The Site Plan
Our professional garden designers will create a comprehensive design and planting plan for your entire outdoor space. Your personal garden designer will create a site plan that offers a “bird’s eye view” of your soon to be dream garden. Seeing your design plan on paper makes it much easier to identify underlying design elements such as traffic patterns, scale, and symmetry.
Our professional garden designers will give you a site plan that is precisely drawn to scale, making the best use of your space. Once you have a design to work from, your designer will pinpoint the positive and negative features of your yard, such as trees, shrubs, and views, and natural environmental factors such as light conditions, and soil or drainage problems. Pathways and garden areas can be sketched right on the plan. Think of it as the blueprint to your beautiful garden!
Garden Design Basics
Your personal design team will work with you to create a gorgeous garden design that incorporates not only style, flow, and scale, but also your personality!
Every garden has a style or personality to it. Together we will create a garden that is tailored to your personal tastes. For example, would you like your garden formal or informal? Your designer will consider your yard, the style of your home, and your personal tastes to design a garden that effortlessly fits into your lifestyle. If you have travelled and wish to incorporate your travel ideas into any theme. Mediterranean, Spanish, Dessert, English, Contemporary, Ethnic, Greek, Countryside or Modern, we will interpret your ideas and incorporate those into a plan.
A garden is more pleasing when there is a logical progression from one area to the next. Your designer will help you consider how you would like to view and move through your garden. Paths are just one way to connect some of the various sections of your garden to achieve a sense of order and cohesiveness. Focal points, such as a piece of sculpture, a water feature, a distinctive plant, or a captivating view from a window or large sliding doors, can be used to draw the eye and pull us forward into a new space.
The scale of any amazing garden is all about proportions—how the sizes and shapes of things relate to each other. A three-foot-by-six-foot island bed floating in a small birth would be completely out of scale. The same would be true of a small Bottle Palm tree located in front of a two-story colonial house.
