Looking for a beautiful, low-maintenance front yard or backyard landscape design?
A Peaceable Garden LLC can help.
APG specializes in designs that feature lush layers of mixed plantings and elegant hardscapes.
We love using native plants (even in manicured settings) and natural materials like wood and stone.
Your home, your garden, your design.
We offer a full range of design services — whether you want to update an existing garden or create an entirely new outdoor space, and whether your landscape is large or small.
Backyard Landscape Design
Your backyard is your private sanctuary.
A great backyard landscape design considers all your family’s needs and creatively addresses them in a beautiful, holistic approach.
Perhaps you need a patio for outdoor dining or a courtyard for seating and quiet contemplation. Or you may have a pool that needs to be integrated into the rest of the yard.
Our backyard designs can incorporate a range of functional elements to meet your personal needs, including:
- Patios and terraces
- Paths and stepping stones
- Arbors, pergolas, gazebos and trellises
- Fountains and other water features
- Raised beds for growing vegetables and herbs
Small Backyard Designs
If you have limited space, it’s important to make every square inch count.
Careful planning is needed to make sure different landscape elements fit together neatly, like a puzzle.
We will work closely with you to develop elegant solutions that make the most of your small backyard.
Large Backyard Designs
While it’s great to have space, large backyards present their own challenges.
It’s all too easy to be overwhelmed by all that room: How do I begin? What should go where? And how do I take care of it all?
Rather than defaulting to an expansive, high-maintenance lawn, we will help you break your large yard down into manageable garden “rooms” that flow seamlessly from one to another. Some rooms might be small and intimate. Others might be large and activity-packed.
Our design will make sure that everything hangs together in a way that is both functional and beautiful.
Front Yard Design
Your front yard is your home’s public face. What message is it telling the world?
We can help you create a warm, inviting front entry that welcomes visitors to your home.
We can ensure that your paths and your driveway make it easy for you and your guests to get in and out of the house.
If the plants around your foundation are too large or too small — or are just plain boring — we can enhance them with a distinctive planting design.
And if you have the space, we can add strategically placed flower beds or trees for greater visual interest and function.
Small Front Yard Designs
When it comes to front yards, bigger isn’t always better.
A small front yard makes it easy to create a sense of intimacy as visitors approach your home. Why not give them a chance to admire some beautiful plants up close and personal as they walk to your door?
Perhaps you could forgo a lawn altogether and plant instead an inviting mix of small trees, shrubs, flowers and ground covers with multiple seasons of interest.
Where others might see limitations when they look at a small front yard, we see endless design possibilities.
Large Front Yard Designs
If you’re blessed with a large front yard, you have a big canvas to paint on.
There’s room for lots of interesting features that a smaller front yard just can’t accommodate.
But all too often, landscape elements in a large yard are just too small for the space. We will work with you to create a front yard design that has the features you want at an appropriate scale for your home and your property.
Flower Bed Designs
As plant lovers, we think every home should have at least one fabulous flower bed to add color and texture to the landscape while attracting the birds, the bees and the butterflies.
Garden design is near and dear to our hearts, and we would love to work with you to create flower beds that reflect your style and your philosophy.
A distinctive planter overflowing with colorful flowers or lush foliage is a great way to add some pizzazz to your landscape.
You might like a container with a mix of shrubs and perennials that provides year-round interest. Or perhaps you’d prefer a planter display that changes with the seasons.
Whatever your vision, we enjoy the challenge of combining natural materials to create unique containers that complement your house and your landscape.
