We design functional gardens that are as beautiful to look at as they are to use.

Our garden design & maintenance services will help you get the most out of your outdoor space.

Full Garden Design

Our flagship design package is perfect for when you want a complete overhaul of your yard.


We create a detailed master design plan that takes into account your garden environment, the size, your style, your wants and needs, your budget and how much maintenance you want to have to do.


Our master design plans can be installed all at once or in phases (depending on your timescale and budget) – and we can also add-on our outdoor styling option so that your garden is entertaining ready right after install.

Maintenance Services

Our Outdoor Care Concierge Service designed to help you proactively maintain beautiful, functional, and ecological-friendly outdoor spaces. So that you can enjoy your outdoor space and boost property value with ease, consistency, and convenience.

Garden Consultation

Our garden consultation option is ideal for when you just need a few ideas for tackling your yard but aren’t yet ready to have a full design created (or you want to flex your green thumbs yourself!). Note: All of our Full Garden Design projects must start out with a garden consultation.

Installation Oversight & Material Procurement

(please note: this can only be added onto

Full Garden Design projects)


For our designed projects, we offer comprehensive services including installation oversight and material procurement. After finalizing our designs, we assist clients in the bidding process by collaborating with our preferred contractors. Once a contractor is chosen, we actively manage the installation to ensure the design's successful realization.

Throughout this process, we serve as both a guide for the contractor and an advocate for our clients. Our involvement allows us to offer insights on necessary changes or additions to outdoor spaces. Furthermore, we take responsibility for sourcing all plant materials, guaranteeing the correct variety, ensuring plant health, and the shape of the tree branches for optimal growth and beauty.

In addition, we provide styling procurement services to ensure that every element aligns harmoniously. It's the meticulous attention to detail and the incorporation of stylistic elements that truly unite the outdoor space and create an inviting atmosphere.

“Secret Garden Landscapes turned our backyard into a space we love to use!”

“Secret Garden Landscapes turned our backyard into a space we love to use! Now, our terraced garden has a beautiful seating area amongst a thoughtful variety of drought resistant and local plants. Laura's vision, knowledge, and passion for the craft showed through from beginning to end. In addition, Laura finished our project in a very timely manner. We highly recommend Secret Garden Landscapes for any and all services.”

The Secret Garden Landscape Process

(Full Landscape Design)


Initial Site Visit and Garden Consultation

The initial site visit will consist of a tour of your yard as well as a thorough discussion of your gardening style, wants, needs and the possibilities for your outdoor space. Each prospective Full Garden Design project must first begin with a Garden Consultation. (Please note: if you decide to move forward with a Full Garden Design project within a week of your garden consultation, the cost of the consultation will be applied to the final project fee.

Site Analysis

During the site analysis, our team will make a scientific and holistic evaluation of your garden. We will note the existing plants, sun/shade patterns, soil type, elevation, slopes, views, and wind patterns, and take measurements and photos to ensure that the design options we create fully work with and complements your existing garden environment.

Design Options Meeting

At the Design Meeting, you will have a chance to review the garden design options that Secret Garden Landscapes has prepared for you. These are working designs that we can discuss and change. 

Final Design

Once the different options for your garden have been discussed and you have chosen a final design, we will finalize the plan. Detailed plans come up drawings, hardscape specifications, styling selections, plant care instructions, and a monthly to-do list so you can take full ownership of your yard.
