The landscape design team at CopperTree believes that a plan for a landscape or outdoor space requires a well thought through design that is the result of a collaboration of client and designer.  
We will produce two to three designs that will take into consideration:

  • Form, function and the architectural requirements of the home.  
  • We carefully assess environmental challenges and offer solutions. 
  • We listen to your wishes and desires for your space
  • We make you aware of current trends and opportunities that you might not be aware of for your design.
    giving you the option to choose elements from any or all of them to hone it into one perfect plan.  Once the plan is finalized then materials are discussed and chosen.  Much like choosing wallpaper and paint for your indoors, there are many mediums that will bring your design to life.  When materials are chosen, then pricing is determined and you are given choices as to which options will work for you and your ultimate plan.  You may decide to phase the project in over time, you may decide that you would like to participate in the planting, you may decide that you ready togo now.  However we can assist you in making your plans and dreams come true; that is the CopperTree difference.  We are here to work with you to achieve your ultimate goal.
