The Landscape Design Process

Since 1964, Pinehurst Landscape Company has been providing quality landscape design services throughout Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Howard County, Harford County, and Anne Arundel County. Each project begins with a meticulous design process to ensure that we create a finished product that you not only love, but also meets your needs. With over 50 years of experience, you can trust our talented landscape designers to transform your backyard into a space where you truly enjoy spending time.

Initial Consultation

Every project begins with a walkthrough of your property to determine your needs. We want to find out how you’ll use your yard — whether you need play space for children, room for pets to run, a patio for entertaining, a quiet spot to read, or privacy screening from your neighbors. We take the time to notice design issues that you may not have thought about and offer innovative solutions as part of your landscape plan. We also aim to get a sense of your aesthetic preferences so that we are able to create the perfect design for you and your family.

After the initial meeting, we conduct a thorough site analysis and create a scaled drawing. We’ll look at potential drainage issues, measure changes in elevation, and take stock of existing plants, features, and the aesthetics of your home so that we can create the perfect design for you.

Creating Your Landscape Design

Once the site analysis and initial walkthrough have been completed, we’ll combine the information we’ve gathered with our extensive knowledge of plants and landscaping materials to design your landscape. As horticulturists, we understand how to choose plants (link to nursery page) that are suitable for the Maryland climate so that your yard will look beautiful year-round and be filled with interesting color, texture, and fragrance. We strive to create designs that are practical as well as beautiful and integrate the artistic principles of line, space, texture, balance, and proportion to create a graceful garden setting.

Once the design has been completed, the designer will meet with you to present the plan and do another walkthrough of your property so you can visualize how our design ideas will fit together. We will continually work with you to revise the project until we have created your perfect landscape. After the design has been finalized, we will provide a cost estimate for the project and if you accept, we will schedule the installation promptly.


Landscape Project Installation

Your designer will act as project manager throughout the job to ensure that the work is installed as planned and on schedule. Pinehurst’s crews take great pride in their work and are meticulous in all aspects of the job. A foreman will be on site at all time and your designer will be there at the beginning and to check in periodically to ensure that installation goes smoothly. Our crew’s dedication to craftsmanship is reflected in the beauty and quality of your finished landscape.
