Landscape Design Principles

We use the following guidelines in creating attractive, pleasant, and comfortable landscapes:

Proportion: We put into account the proportion between plants and hardscapes, to avoid plants surpassing hardscapes, or hardscapes outdoing plants. We believe in a well-coordinated design where every landscape feature contributes to the property’s overall aura.

Order: Our symmetrical and asymmetrical yards are made on scale and in an orderly way to create balance.

Repetition: We apply the repetition principle with an aim of coming up with predictable sequences and patterns on landscapes. We repeat specific features throughout the landscape.

Unity: This is the perceived sense that everything connected works together with each other to create a whole product. We employ design styles or themes to help us get unity in the yard.

How to Prepare Soil for Your Westport Garden

Soil could be just “dirt” to us, but it acts as home to your plants. Whether you intend to have a flower garden or lay sod, having the right soil and proper bed preparation is crucial.

Regardless of whether your garden is predominantly sandy or full of clay, its improvement solution is simple: Putting organic matter, or well-rotted manure.

Steps for Making a New Bed by Digging

  1. Remove grass and other vegetation present
  2. Spread 2-3 inches of organic matter
  3. Turn soil for about 8-inches.

A No-Dig Approach for Making a New Bed

  1. Cut the existing grass with your mower at its lowest setting
  2. Spread a 12-sheets thick newspaper
  3. Spread between 8-12 inches of organic matter
  4. Leave mold to settle until spring.

Lawn Installation – Grasses that Do Well in Westport

Like many other Fairfield County residents, you might be asking yourself, “Which is the best time to lay sod in Westport?” Normally, we recommend sod laying during spring and autumn. There are cool temperatures and occasional rain which will make your sod root quickly. The ideal grasses for a Westport lawn are:

  • Kentucky bluegrass
  • Creeping Red Fescue
  • Rough bluegrass
  • Zoysia Grass
  • Perennial Ryegrass
  • Tall Turf Fescue

We evaluate soil features and environmental conditions for accurate results.

Westport Hardscape Final Touches

Our hardscape projects are never complete until our designer’s discerning eyes are satisfied. By this, even those minor signature details that bring flair to the design are included. Below are some finishing touches we will apply to round off your hardscaping project in Westport CT.

Coping: Just as it is essential to final touch vertical features such as walls and steps, so is coping crucial. Visually, coping contributes to the final touch of the color required to tie a hardscape design to a surrounding landscape.

Inlays: Invalid designs and patterns give the patio an imitable character and give us a chance for investing in a signature design. Inlay could be complicated or simple.
