We are frequently asked to tackle challenging landscape design problems. Outdoor Craftsmen are experts at providing solutions that really work for our clients with unique issues like grading, poor drainage, unsightly views, and bad soil.
One request we get a lot is for landscape design around a deck. Landscaping around a deck can go a long way in making your landscape a wonderful place to relax and entertain, and when done well makes your entire yard a showcase of beauty.
Our approach is to begin with overall orientation of the deck, including its height, border, and hours of sun and shade each day in every season. Then we determine the plantings that will best suit your property, your lifestyle, your maintenance wants, and watering requirements.
You want the materials we use and the design we implement to grow and thrive and last in your landscape for years. If you’re going to spend time and money to have a gorgeous design implemented, you want it to be well thought out and expertly designed.
When it comes time to add final touches to the project, we make it a point to understand the specific fire danger that may be at play in your larger environment, and plan accordingly.
While many landscapes still use a lot of wood mulch, we are advocates of sustainable rock mulch to cut down on weeds, maintain moisture, and drastically reduce fire danger. The addition of boulders and large rocks enhances the design aesthetic and contributes to a lower maintenance and more fire-safe approach.
