Each of our design & build projects are client specific. We begin with understanding what aspects of your existing landscape are important to you, and what features or aspects can be added or improved upon. Our work is site specific. The design is tailored to your landscape. Discussion, brainstorming, and planning are what make innovative ideas possible. We like being innovative and creative with your landscape, but we are also practical. We deliver low-maintenance solutions that look great.



We believe that the better the design- the better the outcome. Crafting a landscape takes real skill. NWLD values the design process so much because it is so very rewarding. Beautiful and functional outdoor spaces come from refined designs, good planning, and well executed installation. NWLD excels at producing superb landscape designs.

“My husband and I worked with Nathan on our first landscaping project and we immediately connected with his vision and interest in making our landscape unique and not just a carbon copy of the other houses in our neighborhood. He explained why certain plants would go in certain places and embraced our love for color. Nathan used the qualities of our yard and house to come up with a landscaping plan that really “fit” our style. We’ve received so many compliments on our yard, and, even better, they have come from self-proclaimed green thumbs! Nathan made our house something special and we will definitely be working with him again!”
