Best Commercial Installation

This airy rooftop garden brought home the award for “Best Commercial Installation”.

The idea behind this Texas native rooftop oasis was to separate homeowners from the city by giving them a native Texas landscape oasis. As noted by the spa, putting green, fire pits and outdoor cooking stations, the paramount goal of the rooftop is relaxation.

Two thousand square feet of raised planter beds line the space and are filled with an assortment of muhly grass, purple fountain grass, daylilies and Texas Red Yucca to create an urban oasis. 


Best Residential Maintenance

This stately private residence won the award for “Best Residential Maintenance”.

The unique custom design and extensive installation of this gorgeous garden took place several years ago, and every week our exceptional maintenance team summons their love for detail to hand trim the precise lines of the hedges and keep the garden looking sharp and clean.

The 30,000 square foot property boasts these meticulously maintained hedges throughout; turning nature into a true art form.


Best in Residential Installation

This stunning English home sits on an impressive double lot in the heart of Southampton and was made with Houston summer memories in mind.

The inspiration for this family friendly design, was a warm and welcoming farm to table feel.  The outdoor summer dream features a custom brick fireplace and summer kitchen, half-Olympic pool, and plenty of open outdoor space for entertaining with friends and family.


Design | Unique Features | Best in Show

Last but certainly not least, is our contemporary art garden, winning gold for “Design, the award for “Unique Features”, and “Best of Show.”

The owner was looking for a way to create an elegant, all-white garden that would showcase unique art pieces throughout the grounds. Our team incorporated white seasonal color, custom art pieces, and furniture, to blend seamlessly with the detailed landscape.

Every corner of this English garden is a contemporary masterpiece. Imagine walking through your very own art gallery every day; right in your own backyard.
