Landscaping Services

Developing a lasting plan that meets both utility and beauty can be quite the undertaking. The Garden Gates has been creating and designing impressive and functional gardens for over 20 years. We start with mere sketches using pen and ink to envision and bring to life the garden of your dreams. We know how the careful placement of a flowering tree, a working kitchen garden or a simple planter with tightly sheered topiaries and complimenting cascading flowers can all bring beauty and sensibility to your garden. The dedicated team of landscape architects, horticulturalists, and designers at The Garden Gates can create an environment to meet all of your outdoor landscaping needs, whether for today or the ever evolving future.


Pave the way to your beautiful patio and garden with concrete pavers. Complimenting your home and garden with a variety of attractive hardscape options is easily achievable with distinctive concrete pavers.  The installation process allows for a variety of patterns and possibilities to meet the needs of any specific project. Utilize pavers to design charming walkways and entertaining areas that will bring warmth and beauty to your home and garden. Concrete pavers are available in several styles, colors, and thicknesses, which allow versatility in various applications whether it’s adapting to existing conditions or new construction.


Creating an exquisite garden is a true art form. Planting the right trees, flowers, and shrubs, as well as knowing where they will thrive best is key when maintaining a garden. Selecting the proper plant for the appropriate area of your garden is often the toughest decision. When our staff reviews your outdoor site, they will determine the most suitable plants based on growing conditions and general purposes of your garden. Once the right plant is selected, it's important that the planting area is installed correctly and prepared with sustainable products. The overall team goal of The Garden Gates is to provide your home and garden with years of enjoyment as the garden grows into maturity.


Quench your garden's thirst! It's important to ensure that your Garden is looking its best and blooming to its full potential with a proper irrigation system. Irrigation systems provide your garden with the much-needed water to thrive in the New Orleans environment. When an irrigation system is correctly designed and installed, it guarantees that your plants will grow and flourish to their full beauty. The systems use irrigation fertilizer injectors, creating automatic fertilizer programs with virtually no effort. Irrigation fertilizer injectors supply small amounts of fertilizer feed during each watering cycle to provide the best overall care for your garden.  

Low Voltage Lighting

Having the right landscaping light is as important as the plants themselves. Cascading light across lush trees will illuminate shadows against your home. It's a warm, gentle light that leads you through a pathway or the soft shadow on the porch. The design and installation of landscape lighting transforms the mysteries of the garden at night into a mirage-like setting at your home. Using underground wiring with low voltage transformers will offer custom timing as well as photocell activation. The Garden Gates designs and installs the highest quality products using cast aluminum and many other options to create the perfect setting for all of your family memories and moments. With low voltage lighting, you can create the perfect ambience in your garden.
