"Joshua Ruppert is an amazing designer. He transformed our very small city backyard into an oasis with multiple gathering spaces. We had given Josh an idea of our vision of the space. He reviewed it in earnest, and then cautiously asked if we would be offended if he modified it somewhat to maybe improve the flow. The design that he gave us is awesome because he listened to our ideas and transformed them into a functioning work of art. Since our project was completed, we have entertained many friends and family  in our new playground. The comments we have received are some version of:  'You have created your own beautiful ecosystem' to 'This is the most amazing backyard that we have ever seen.' We recommend Josh to anyone with a landscape project."

STEP 1: CONSULTATION AND COLLECTING THE FACTS

Let's start out with getting to know YOU, the PROPERTY, and the ARCHITECTURE of your home. The initial consultation is the building block to thoughtful design. Please share with us any ideas and images that you have collected that best represent you and your style of design.  Things to consider when we meet include capitalizing on views, the climate, and how to plan around your space. We would love to meet with your entire design team! Architects, interior designers, and builders are WELCOME! Once we gather all your project information, we will then learn the design guideline requirements and conduct necessary research to create a thoughtful and meaningful design solution.

STEP 5: PROJECT OVERSITE

We represent YOU. We OVERSEE the contractor and the installation of the project. We will go to nurseries and hand select specimen trees and plants that will work best with your design. We will help DIRECT hardscape installation and PLACE plants in their best location. In the end, we will help deliver the final touches to your project!
