A sustainable garden starts with a smart design. Our sustainability-focused designs conserve natural resources, produce fresh organic food, and create a healthy, beautiful environment in your own yard!
Sustainability with Style
Revolution Landscape combines environmental mindfulness with design innovation to produce sustainable landscapes that are both functional and attractive. To design a green landscape that minimizes the ecological footprint of your yard, we must not only consider the local climate and habitat, but also minimize resource inputs such as water, fertilizer, and fossil fuels.
Our designs feature the use of native plants, drought resistant plants, and the installation of edible landscaping that will allow you to grow your own food. Whether it’s through efficient drip irrigation, smart weather based irrigation controllers, or rainwater harvesting systems, water conservation is an integral part of the overall design. Use of onsite, reclaimed or recycled materials, especially in hardscape installation, is incorporated whenever possible, as are permeable paving materials that reduce storm water pollution and allow rainwater to infiltrate and replenish groundwater.

The Residential Landscape Design Process
1. Onsite Consultation
After a brief phone conversation we visit with you at your property to analyze the site and discuss your needs. This involves walking your space and gathering site observations such as existing plant material, sun exposure, terrain and other microclimate factors. We’ll discuss your vision for the space, how existing materials can be repurposed, and ways to improve water efficiency and food production. During this process, we also work to understand your needs and budget, in addition to what landscaping style best represents your tastes.
2. Site Analysis & Design Concept
After the initial site visit, we begin to develop a concept plan and explore sustainable landscape solutions for your yard. Depending on the scope of the project, additional photos, site measurements, soil samples and irrigation system assessments may be taken. The deliverable to you is a Design Concept that includes an inspiration board and plant pallet as well as hardscape and sustainable design recommendations.
3. Landscape Design & Construction Proposal
Once the final concept is agreed upon, Landscape Design documents are drafted which may include site plans, 3D concept renderings, irrigation map, and a detailed planting plan. Project estimations are an ongoing part of the landscape design process, and once the final Landscape Design is drafted, an itemized construction proposal is created. The estimate details all the major project features, such as the plants and building materials with estimated quantities and costs, as well as labor projections. Once the proposal is accepted we move into construction!
