Garden design focuses on the art and process of imagining and documenting the layout, planting and details needed to implement a garden. If that seems overwhelming to you, this is our wheelhouse. Let us help.
Our landscape designers have formal training and professional experience in Landscape Architecture in addition to being gardeners themselves. We can assist you from the larger parsing of issues to be solved, to developing a program that will serve functional needs and aesthetic desires, then documents to implement improvements, including planting plans. Design is inherently custom or bespoke. It responds to you, your unique conditions, and budget.
Due to the individuality of each design project, the fee will be relative to the scope of tasks to address. Garden Design services begin with a conversation, and likely a site visit for us to form an appropriate proposal to fit your needs specifically and comprehensively.
Since no two landscapes are the same, each design is unique and site-specific. Here are examples of residential garden designs we have produced. Together they provide an overview and range of the type of information addressed. The examples have identifying and proprietary information obscured.

Meet the Coaching and Consultation Team
Julie and Lisa are the owner/operators of Redbud and TEND landscape architects. Julie has a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and a Master's in Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. Julie is an ISA certified arborist. Lisa has a Bachelor's degree in Landscape Architecture from Purdue University and is a registered Landscape Architect in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Julie and Lisa met and started working together on public landscapes at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS). Residential landscapes have become more of their portfolio since taking on Redbud and learning from homeowners about the desire to transition conventional home gardens to be more than just pretty but to support all life, feed pollinators, sequester carbon, and work with water. They believe assisting private landowners is a significant way to counteract climate change and strengthen connections to the natural world.
Also on the team are Gretchen and Angie. Gretchen has worked with Julie and Lisa since their days at PHS. She has a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Landscape Architecture from Cornell University. Angie has a Bachelor's degree in Digital Production and Communication from the State University of New York at New Paltz and is currently in the Master's program for Landscape Architecture at Temple University.
