Lush, layered gardens are an APG specialty. We draw inspiration from all types of gardens – and adapt their style to suit our mid-Atlantic climate.
APG loves the more naturalistic approach of modern plant design. Let us loosen up your garden with native plants or create a stylized meadow for you – it can be as wild as you like.
There’s nothing like an artfully designed container to add some instant pizzazz to your landscape. We love incorporating shrubs, perennials and grasses in our planter designs to give you color and interest year-round.
Patios, walkways and pergolas shouldn’t be boring. We pay the same attention to our hardscape elements as we do to our planting designs to help create a truly distinctive landscape.

Why A Peaceable Garden?
There are many landscape design services available in the Northern Virginia and Washington, DC area, so why choose us?
You’ve got your own style.
A Peaceable Garden LLC works closely with clients to develop distinctive landscape designs tailored specifically for them. We take a fresh, creative approach to every project. We don’t use the same handful of plants over and over, and we don’t do cookie-cutter designs. Whether your muse is Piet Oudolf’s stunning landscapes or Beth Chatto’s famous gravel garden, our design will reflect your personal style.
You like being involved.
Listening to our clients is a big part of what we do. Our starting point is to collect information about you and your home or business. We then develop design solutions refined through additional conversation. Our goal is to engage you and produce a design you love.
You appreciate flexibility.
We’re comfortable with a variety of landscape styles, from the very traditional to the very contemporary. We specialize in plant-intensive designs that mix a diversity of plants, including natives, with elegant hardscapes using natural materials such as wood and stone. Regardless of style, we aim to design landscapes that are visually stunning and environmentally friendly.
Your time and money are important to you.
We’ll be the first to tell you there’s no such thing as a maintenance-free landscape. But we’re also very mindful of your budget and time. We won’t over-design your landscape, and we’ll pay close attention to the amount of maintenance it will require.
You value an unbiased opinion.
As an independent landscape design company, our sole focus is on producing a beautiful design tailored specifically for you. Since we’re not trying to sell you other goods and services (like plants in our nursery or work by our masons), we’ll serve as your advocate throughout the design and build process. We’ll advise you on issues like how to phase in a plan, how to find the right contractor and how to source the plants we’ve selected for you.
You need some special expertise.
Owner Sandy Wilson has specialized training in how to design landscapes for people dealing with a variety of life challenges, including health and wellness issues. Whether you’re caring for a loved one with memory impairment or a child with autism, we can help design a landscape that’s both beautiful and supportive.
