Our team of landscape architects and designers are on hand every step of the way - from the initial consultation and design to maintenance and seasonal changes.
[Tweet "Beautiful Landscape Take Time #landscapes #metairie #neworleans"]Creating landscapes and lush gardens are at the heart of what we do. Our passion is creating gorgeous surroundings through landscape architecture, design, and long-term care. From complete overhauls to fine-tuned maintenance, our landscape architect Jesse Edmondson has the experience to establish a plan for your space that is completely customized to suit the needs of you, your family, and your home or business. There are few projects too large or small, and the extent of our services go beyond simple landscaping. Through specialized horticultural care, seasonal updates and living space design, you can have it all in your outdoor decor.
Landscape architecture varies with your home’s exterior style. Whether you crave a charming Southern look or a modern, minimal space, Jesse will create a custom plan after meeting with you and getting a feel for space. Update garden beds, build a beautiful lawn and clean up existing plants to create a fabulous curb appeal for your home. Jesse will carefully guide the design or redesign of both the front and backyard every step of the way to get the look you have always wanted.
The Garden Gates’ services don’t stop at garden design and installation. Long-term care and maintenance are just as important to us. Through careful application of horticultural chemicals, fertilizers, and other specialized products, your garden and lawn will be at its best. Soil can be analyzed, and garden beds will be evaluated to create the ideal space for trees, shrubs, annuals and more. Whether you like your garden to look a little wild and carefree or you desire a formal English garden, our landscapers have the tools and knowledge to keep them all flourishing.
A crucial aspect of landscape design and maintenance is irrigation. Jesse and his team will design a watering plan through traditional in-ground sprinkler heads and versatile drip system irrigation to keep your garden and planters watered all year long. Irrigation can be added during the initial installation of a new garden ideally, or after the fact sprinklers and new zones can be added to keep up with a growing garden. The Garden Gates offers complete irrigation services, meaning that we will install the sprinkler system and maintain it through a landscape maintenance contract or on an as-needed basis. We will adjust your system based on the time of year and can replace any parts as they wear out.
In addition to irrigation, landscape lighting is a wonderful feature to create curb appeal and to keep the exterior of your home subtly lit. Draw attention to flowering plants and trees with spotlights and garden lights in the backyard or to add appeal to the front of your home. These can be safely and efficiently installed once your garden has been planted, and Jesse and his team will maintain all landscape lights through a monthly contract or on a case by case basis. Landscape lighting is a great feature to utilize and will complete your look so that you can enjoy your landscaping even in the evenings.
Laying pavers, designing driveways and creating walkways or garden paths is an important feature to landscape design. Making the garden and lawn function as well as beautiful is necessary, and our landscape architect has worked extensively with creating areas around pools, building patios and designing unique driveways. Jesse has worked with brick, pavers and flagstone in spaces such as French Quarter courtyards, traditional homes, and commercial spaces to create both functional and recreational areas. Technical landscaping outside the realm of plants is a feature not to be overlooked when choosing the right landscaping and maintenance company.
Once the garden and lawn have been planted, the patio has been created and the lighting set up, it’s time to enjoy your outdoor space. Jesse and our designers at The Garden Gates can recommend garden fountains, garden planters, patio furniture and more to make your outdoor living space perfect for your family. He loves to incorporate large cast stone garden fountains into his designs and to include other elements to guide the eye, add interest and make them pop. Outdoor furniture through The Garden Gates is a no-brainer because it will be added to your design, and the ordering and logistics will be handled by our team. Some of Jesse’s favorite brands are Fermob for outdoor furniture and Campania International for cast stone fountains and planters, and he has access to other reputable brands as well. Let him show you how a comprehensive design to include not only a beautiful garden but an outdoor living space will change the way you look at your backyard.
