Our integrated design service is focused to be considerate to your needs and create beautiful and functional outdoor spaces through a collaborative process. Our hand rendered plans are clear and drawn to scale to help you visualize the completed project. Design options are considered and presented in clear, concise format to help you choose the option that best suits your needs and budget. Our detailed proposals list all materials, labor costs and other line item costs to allow you a clear vision of options, price points and material choices.

We design and install surface and sub-surface drainage systems. This is needed to manage erosion and water flow; as well as, solve issues relating to grade, poorly draining soils and hard-surface runoff. We also install dry creek beds, channel drains, erosion control matting, french drains, catch basins and down-spout connections.

Ponds & Water Features

We can create a unique, relaxing oasis with the sound of running water, plants and underwater lighting. A small sampling of water features that are often included are: fountains, bubblers, pondless, disappearing (recirculating) water fountains and waterfalls. If you can imagine it, we can design and build it.

Ponds & Water Features





My lawn didn't exist, having been trampled over the years by former homeowners. James O'Mara designed a varied and dynamic landscape plan that included drainage and a strip of pond stones to carry the water down beside the driveway. Around the new lawn they created, they planted bushes and flowers designed to bloom at all different times of the year. I have flowered plants that bloom in the winter! I was amazed. The neighbors have provided endless compliments and I am blissfully happy with the new look.
