We completed this residential landscape design build project in late September / early October of last year. It was a complete “strip it down and rebuild” project tailored to a specific vision the property owners had. Site and bed layout, analysis of changing sunlight factors specific to bed location, plants meeting specific placement requirements and then throw in the overall design flow and the colors and sizes envisioned and well… That brings us to foresight.

This property located in Paramus, N.J. entailed a complete landscape design build makeover. All existing lawn and bed areas were in dire straits, need a thorough cleaning and weeding before we could even begin to move forward. Within some of the landscape areas were concrete and block paver stones, long neglected and serving no purpose anymore which we removed. Being mostly sun areas, there were however shade garden beds wherein the landscaping needed to incorporate plants that thrive within the full spectrum of sun to shade gardening.

Zen Rock Gardens defy the definition commonly thought of as a garden in almost every manner speaking. There are no places with row after row of lush trees and shrubs, a gazebo to gather in or even no pond filled with fascinating koi fish. According to Japanese philosophy, rocks represent a sense of power and desire. In a Zen garden, rocks represent islands and are surrounded by raked gravel which represents water.
A blank slate such as this property makes it easier to separate the areas. Some houses already have a foot print that need existing materials to be moved in order to provide a more evenly flow from one area to another. This backyard had almost all the components of a true backyard paradise.

So you want to sell your house? All real-estate agents make it a priority to stress upon you, the seller, that in the end, curb appeal matters. Survey results show that landscape expenditures significantly increase perceived home value and often results in a higher sale price that home with minimal landscaping.
One of the criteria of being a landscape designer is that you need to have the ability to visualize and design in all spaces, big and small. Smaller areas require an understanding and knowledge of plant growth, habits and needs because you have limited space and timeless growth.
