Landscape Architect - Landscaping Design and Consultation
As the first step to our landscaping services, we believe that a successful landscaping project begins with a detailed plan. Designing an outdoor space is similar to decorating inside - walls, windows, flooring and furnishings are all elements to be considered and selected. We work with you to design functional, as well as beautiful, outdoor spaces. Our planning process ensures that every dollar spent is used effectively to give you the results you desire.

Site prep is an essential building block for proper landscaping. Site prep can include debris removal, land clearing, grading, soil tests, excavating, demolition, soil amendments and tree/stump removal.
Landscapes are the natural features that provide the appeal and warmth to your outside living area. Are you dreaming of an extravagant outdoor area, or wishing to enhance the natural beauty of your property? Green Acres has the experience and knowledge to bring your dreams to fulfillment.
Trees, shrubs, ground covers, plants and the lawns are all elements that soften the landscape, adding curb appeal to front yards and warmth to backyard environments. These features have many uses in landscaping; creating a smooth transition from one part of a home to another, blending hardscape features like walkways, and retaining walls, improving the overall scheme of the landscape, and camouflaging undesirable elements like utilities or exterior house elements. By choosing trees and plants that thrive in the local climatic conditions and by using applications that promote long-term survival, Green Acres creates healthy landscapes that last and require low, cost effective maintenance. Our landscapes are designed from formal to natural. They can be additions to an already existing landscape or a complete design and installation plan.
Hardscapes bring functionality to your outside areas by expanding your living area to the great outdoors with a patio to reclaiming the usefulness of your property with a retaining wall. Integrate hardscapes with other landscaping services for a beautiful finished look.
Hardscapes are elements such as stone, brick and rock that add structure to your landscape. Hardscapes include patios, walkways, retaining walls, and driveways. Tastefully designed and properly installed hardscapes are great investments and can bring aesthetic and functional beauty to your outdoor space. Professional design and implementation is essential for successful hardscapes. Green Acres is certified in segmental retaining walls and interlocking concrete pavers. They provide continuity in the flow from the indoors to the outdoors. Patios are the basis for creating the special outdoor entertainment area. Walkways and driveways add a distinctive aura of blending the outdoors with the main building structure. While retaining walls not only add beauty and the feeling of strength, but also aid in capturing outdoor space that may have been lost due to the property layout.
The soothing sound of water flowing down a rustic waterfall or the captivating allure of goldfish swimming in a pond adds tranquility and harmony to your outdoor space.
The therapeutic sights and sounds of beautiful waterfalls and ponds created especially for you by Green Acres will give you hours of relaxing enjoyment. Waterscapes are structures that bring natural sights and soothing sounds to your outside living area. They may include ponds, water gardens and waterfalls. Our waterscapes are well designed and constructed, low on maintenance, and a joy for you and your guests. Our waterscape features can be combined with other natural features such as fish, boulders and plants.
