Garden Landscaping Design Services

Garden Landscaping

There are two steps to designing a beautiful garden. The first is to create a design that shows the shape and layout of the garden beds and planting areas and how they fit into your property plan. The second step is to select the right plant varieties and combinations to fill each of those planting areas.

Home Outside’s landscape experts can do both. Read the descriptions below to learn more and see which service is right for you.

Garden Design Services


If you need expert landscape designers to show you where to place garden beds and plants in your yard, you’ll want our Full or Partial Property Design service.

Get started by using our easy online workbook to describe your ideal landscape, or just tell us what you like and don’t like about your existing property. In only a few weeks, Home Outside’s landscape planners will deliver a beautiful, creative, and practical landscape design that you can give to a contractor or build yourself.

Our Full and Partial Property Designs will show general planting suggestions (such as “small spring-flowering tree,” “tall billowing grasses,” or “mixed perennial bed”) but will not list specific varieties and quantities.

Garden Design Ideas


Our Home Outside designers are full of good ideas and information about the latest trends in garden design. Whether your taste is traditional, formal, relaxed, minimalist, or eclectic, we can show you possibilities for the garden of your dreams. Maybe you want to replace your lawn with something more exciting and multi-functional, or you want to make your garden more water-wise and sustainable while also beautiful. Tell us what you want, and we’ll give you our suggestions, in the form of a Pinterest board of 15-20 images with descriptive notes and links to more information.

Garden Planting Ideas


Our Planting Idea Board is the right service for you if you’re happy with the design of your planting area but want to know specific plants for your hardiness zone, maintenance needs, and aesthetic preferences.

Our landscape design experts will put together a Pinterest board showing 15-20 plants that suit your needs and will look beautiful together in one planting area on your property. Each image will link to more detailed information about the plant.

This service can also be added onto our Full or Partial Property Design service.
