Finding Outdoor Design Inspiration

One trend our landscape designers have noticed this season is our clients taking the lead by showing examples of their design preferences. Coming into our first meeting with a few ideas helps our team understand your vision.  


  • Your neighborhood: Look at houses in your neighborhood or in a neighborhood you love and take your design cues from what already exists. Pay attention to the color and style of those homes compared to your own. If you’re comfortable doing so, ask the homeowner if you can take a photo of their home. Or simply take design notes that you can share with our team.  
  • The web: Social networks such as Pinterest have millions of images of outdoor designs. A Pinterest board will organize all your inspiration pictures in one place. You can also check sites such as Architectural Digest, or even consumer retail sites that feature outdoor furniture — try Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel. These retailers typically use beautiful backyards to display their products. 
  • Houzz: Dedicated to all things home design, Houzz is a relevant place to find design inspiration. Check out our profile, which includes a variety of project types, from pool landscaping to fire pits and so much more. 
  • Our Project Gallery: Our main Project Gallery page has all kinds of project photos. You can also go directly to the page that best matches your project needs — water features, paver patios, landscaping, or something else – and learn more about the styles we can create for you. 
  • Social media: We are always posting project photos on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Follow us on both and let the inspiration flow!
