What does Living Earth Designs do?

As a growing landscape design build firm, our focus is on providing our clients with thoughtful, functional and beautiful spaces that are ecologically significant and well crafted. We bring a high level of energy and creativity to our design thinking and a sense of urgency to the installation of every project.  It is our mission that the outdoor environment we create for our clients responds to uniquely reflect who they are, their values and the lifestyle they live. Our approach is design for life, design for lifestyle. This equates to us placing a high value on our relationships with clients and how we can enhance their enjoyment of life through the landscapes we design and build for them. We have a passion for what we do, and want the designer/project manager to bring their passion to the role as well.

What does all of this mean? We aren’t a traditional company that mows yards, and prunes trees. We aren’t going to hand you a shovel and tell you to dig, we want to challenge you to learn, grow, and be interested in the projects you are doing and the people you are doing them for. We help our clients establish a vision for their yard, create a custom design and then our team works to build and install the design bringing a concept to reality with a “get it done and done well” attitude.
