Your landscape is the backdrop for your home. The exterior of your home and your landscaping are the first thing someone sees as they approach your home and it is visible from all of your windows inside your home. Patrice’s goal in landscape design is to create gorgeous spaces that make her clients want to go out and enjoy them.
Patrice starts with safety, practicality, and function in a landscape project. She works with her client’s budget, their desired elements, and material selection to create as beautiful a design as possible.
She is an expert in hardscape design and materials and provides her clients with the information they need to make the best decisions for their project. Selection of the right materials for the climate, intended use, type of style desired, budget, and type of maintenance intended makes all the difference between a beautiful project that will not stay beautiful long and a beautiful project that lasts as long as possible.
The hardscape is the heart of the design. It defines the elements (patios, walkways, seat walls, walls, patio covers, BBQ islands, out-door-rooms and kitchens, fireplaces, fire pits, fountains, pools/spas, steps, etc.) and creates the canvas the designer decorates with plants, furniture, lighting, and outdoor accessories.
The plants dress up the space and really bring it to life with color, mass, and texture. They keep the area cool and vibrant and inviting, and she loves selecting trees, shrubs, and flowers—including drought-tolerant design.
Patrice works with new construction to create the entire landscape for a home, or she can work on part or all of a landscape remodel—from very small projects such as new plants, new lighting, or new outdoor furniture, to larger projects such as complete redesign of an entire property. Call her to discuss your project needs.
