Creative Landscape Designs, L.L.C..
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Milwaukee
"Lynn really went the extra mile! My yard had a number of drainage opportunities along with a disjointed lot due to a recent garage addition and new concrete. So, she had a number of challenges to deal with. Lynn consulted with a number of contractors and visited my lot more than five times with landscapers before she recommended partners, drew the plan, and secured the time slot. She made sure to be on site almost every day making sure the plan was on track and we addressed any design changes with no problems and worked within our budget. I decided to secure and plant some of the plants myself and she was very open to this. The yard is beautiful -- people actually stop their cars and get out to admire our yard -- the design is really out of the box and not "cookie cutter". Creative Landscape Designs was incredible through the whole process and I highly recommend Lynn and her contractor partners."

LandCrafters, Inc
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Milwaukee
"Have used LandCrafters twice and have been very happy with the process and the finished product both times. What I have especially appreciated has been the company's attention to detail and focus on getting it right -- at times they recommended adding things I didn't realize I needed (a couple extra lights here, more drainage there), but other times they convinced me why a cheaper option or forgoing something altogether was the better choice. And Dave Guthery, my project lead, was always accessible and willing to stop over on a moment's notice if I had questions or concerns and he continues to offer suggestions about upkeep and general maintenance to this day. Overall, highly recommended for projects small or large."

Wandsnider Landscape Architects
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Milwaukee
"Wandsnider Landscape Architects contacted me last year about giving their company a fresh look. I wound up redesigning their logo, website and photographed several projects for them. They are a real pleasure to work with. Bill the owner is a great guy and talented artist. One thing that was very unique to me is his landscape artist renderings. They’re beautiful. They’re hand drawn and colored in a way that reminds me of Santiago Calatrava's watercolor studies. Heidi is my primary contact there and she’s very sweet. She has a great sense of humor and knows how to get work done. While on location for a couple photoshoots, I spoke with some of their clients. All of them had good things to say about Bill and his team. One of them even said they’ve been working with Bill for over 20 years."

Novotny Landscaping LLC
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Milwaukee
"I recently have had the opportunity to collaborate on a professional level with the owner of Novotny Landscaping LLC and have had nothing but great experiences. As an art educator and free lance photographer, I have taken photographs for the jobs done by Novotny Landscaping, and in turn they have helped to install an artistic landscape in the entryway of our school building. Between parent and administrative comments, the feedback has been nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a new landscaping project, artistic outdoor living space, or even something as simple as lawn maintenance."

Studio Mira, LLC
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Milwaukee
"I had the pleasure of working with Patty of Studio Mira. Patty helped me design a contemporary bathroom oasis. It's a space that continues to bring a smile to my face every time I walk in. The bathroom had been a small, dark, cold space that you couldn't wait to leave. There was a combined shower tub and a small double vanity. Our desire was to expand the bathroom by using some under utilized space in our master bedroom. We wanted to separate the tub and shower as well as expand our vanity. We were able to achieve this goal and surpass our expectations based on the work Patty did alongside our construction company, Story Hill Renovations. Patty had a great attention to detail. She kept detailed notes as well as detailed plans. Her skills allowed the project to run smoothly even when there were unforeseen bumps along the road. We are truly grateful to Patty of Studio Mira and Tom of Story Hill Renovations for the amazing job they did to give us a stunning bathroom oasis."

What is a landscape architect?


A landscape architect will handle all design, supply, construction and administrative elements of your garden or landscaping project. They will take into account your needs, the Milwaukee climate and unique advantages and constraints of the landscape architecture. Typically, work will be based on ecological and environmental considerations, and a garden will be planned not only to look its best but also to facilitate future maintenance and growth so that it continues to flourish. A Milwaukee landscape architect can also design any outdoor buildings that are to be featured in your garden. Everything from design blueprints through to the plants themselves should be provided by your Milwaukee landscape architect. If there is other architectural development taking place on your site, bring the landscape architect in as early as possible.

The expertise a landscape architect can apply to understanding your space and the natural environment could be vital to planning your project. Let your Milwaukee landscape architect work closely with your architect, surveyor and any other contractors in order to develop landscape architecture that works in accordance with any other construction. This is important from a design perspective as well as on a practical level – changes to the grading of a landscape and modifications such as drainage can have serious implications on the viability of your land for extensive building and structural works. In order to resolve any planning permission issues, submit all applications for building and landscape architecture together, well ahead of the project.

What is a garden designer?


The scope of garden designers, or landscape gardeners, is often more limited to green space projects which will optimise your existing outdoor space rather than altering the landscape architecture as a whole. Whereas landscape architects specialise in the structural aspect of garden planning and building, garden designers in Milwaukee will carry out projects that are of aesthetic and horticultural value. Landscape gardeners will make your garden the best version of itself with features such as walkways, patios, water features, fences and lighting, as well as choosing the right plants, trees and flowers. The practical role of a garden designer may vary by firm – some offer just the plans, requiring a separate contractor, while others fulfil the project in its entirety, from conceptualisation of the landscape gardening to construction. Don’t be put off by the former if you happen to find a good Milwaukee garden designer that you like – he or she will have local industry connections to introduce you to quality, reliable gardening professionals with whom they have existing relationships. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & garden designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Lawn & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios, Sheds & Summerhouses.

How do I choose landscape architects or garden designers in Milwaukee?


When choosing your Milwaukee garden designer or landscape architect, be sure to research their qualifications and look at examples of their previous work. A portfolio of previous landscape architecture or garden projects is important to ascertain both their credentials as well as their style. Once you have shortlisted or chosen your architect or designer, an on-site meeting is essential so they can see exactly what they’ll be working with. Stay briefed on all plans and developments, both before and during the project as a plan you approved previously may change during the course of the project. Be very clear on your budget – just like plans, costs may alter while work is underway so ensure your professional keeps you informed and does not incur additional expense without approval. If you are open-minded and budget-conscious, consider approaching new graduates keen for experience, who may negotiate a lower rate than more experienced professionals.

  • What will I need to provide?
