Why Landscape?

At DeGroot’s Nurseries, we believe that the key element to a great landscape is design. We know that a well-planned landscape requires the designer to take the time and care to create a space that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing to you and the environment. A beautiful landscape maximizes your enjoyment of your home and outside living space, as well as increasing your property value. In fact, real estate studies have shown that a professionally landscaped yard can increase the value of your home by an average of 12%.

At DeGroot’s, our landscape team can incorporate numerous elements into your yard and gardens, including retaining wells, natural stone, interlocking stone, walkways, water features, landscape lighting, and so much more! We complete each project from start to finish while keeping customer satisfaction, creativity, and beauty top of mind.

The Design Process

The design process begins with a designer visiting your home to assess your property, location, and ideas for landscaping. After discussing with you your needs and wants for your gardens and yards, the designer will measure your yard and look at the existing site conditions, and take note of things such as soil type and light. Back at our office, the designer will use the collected information to create a personalized landscape plan for you! From here, the designer will upload the landscape drawing and develop a cost estimate for you to view.

The designer will then meet with you at our office to discuss the landscape plan, cost estimates, and options for getting the project started. At this point, you may make the decision to book our team of professional landscape installers to implement your new landscape plan or you may decide to install the landscape plan yourself.
