Who is CopperTree?

CopperTree is a multi faceted award winning landscape architecture, design/build company. We began in 2006 with a dream to create beautiful landscapes, homescapes, living spaces and relationships.

 We work to collaborate with our clients to develop a master strategic plan that consists of the design, the materials they choose and if required a plan for phasing all aspects in over their timeline. We work to educate on the latest in trends, materials and maintenance requirements to make the addition fit into their lifestyle.  We offer services that span most needs of life outdoors; from shade solutions, furniture that fits your family's lifestyle, fire and water elements, grills, smokers and outdoor structures.
