Groundworkes' Goal

...is to help you find happiness in your own backyard. Our design philosophy is to think of outdoor space in terms of rooms, allowing you to understand your space better and use it more appropriately.

We choose plants from the region's finest growers, selected to succeed in your specific conditions, even if they're problematic. We use native plants along with proven non-natives to create a full spectrum to attract and support wildlife.

We are a full-service landscape design firm. We will design, build and maintain your garden. We'll be there before, during and after the project to be sure that you are completely satisfied with your new outdoor environment. Call us for a consultation today.
