Design & Consultation Services
We understand the unique challenges presented in landscape design for HOAs, Municipalities and new home construction. Our design team’s 16 years of experience gives us the breadth and depth of knowledge to help come up with low maintenance and plant-centric solution plans that fit within budgets now and into the future. We work with architects, engineers, developers, community leaders and elected officials through processes that educate and help build an understanding of best practices.
Field specializes in HOA landscape redesign. After 15 to 25 years, townhome landscapes start to look tired, with shrubs getting ratty from over-pruning and the landscape looking less cohesive because of years of one-off plant replacements. Each building starts to have a unique issue of drainage, tree overgrowth, lawn issues or privacy. Field will work with your board and committees to develop a long-term plan that addresses each building’s unique needs, establishes an up-to-date look that ties all the buildings and spaces together and helps plan project priorities so you can be smart with your funds and work yearly towards a long-term goal. Working with our Master Arborist partner, we will also make sure that there is a tree overview and strategy since tree issues are usually the first issue that land managers face.
Field designs and installs landscapes for unique urban public spaces, specializing particularly on rain gardens and ecological plantings. Field also works with cities on tree planting and placement. Cities are being hit hard with tree removals and keeping up with new tree planting. It is easy to fall into the trap of quickly just planting something and realizing several years down the line that there was no rhyme or reason to the efforts. Field can help create a straightforward “Tree Strategy Document” that outlines goal species to plant in different categories (small/medium/large/conifer) as well as new “community strategies” or planting trees in groups with underplantings in addition to traditional 40’ singular tree strategies. We are flexible and direct — responding quickly to new project needs with simple “colored dots” on plan documents as well as on-site flagging.
New Home Build Consulting
Field designs ecological and space-smart plantings or can work with landscape architects, architects and builders to assist in plant sourcing and design. Field has unique relationships with local nurseries and custom grows many plants that work well in the urban environment. We specialize in spec. plant installation including site preparation, seeding, planting, trees and mulching. We have experience in rain gardens, permeable pavers and native plantings in a variety of challenging environments.
