Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Philadelphia
B.DeMichele Inc.
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in Philadelphia
"DeMichele, Inc. drastically improved our property. They installed a brick front walkway and flagstone steps (with lighting) leading to our front door. They spruced up our portico by capping the wood with siding, adding new columns and a flagstone landing. Also, Belgian blocks were installed along the edge of our driveway. Lastly they provided an excellent design plan and added all new landscaping. Everyone of the staff were wonderful to work with. Elizabeth was very patient with the millions of questions I had and very knowledgeable about the different plant options. The landscaping was done in November and Elizabeth followed up in the spring to make sure all of the plants survived the winter. The crew that did the work, led by Thomas (accent over the a?) were very friendly and did a great job. We are very happy with the final result and would definitely recommend DeMichele. Pictures of our project can be found on their website."

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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia?


When choosing your Philadelphia 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.
