From conception to completion our primary focus is providing Arlington VA (22201, 22202, 22203) residents with a finished, fully functional landscape. When you contact Grigg Design the first thing we will do is set up an on-site interview to assess your home and talk about ideas and options available. We’ll ask a lot of questions regarding how you want to use the landscape, how much entertaining you do, if you have favorite plants and even favorite colors.
Blending the creative and the practical is what we do best. Landscaping is the process by which you take a structure and tie it to the existing surrounding landscape so that everything looks attractively natural. Ideally, when you get through, people will look at the house and say “that house just fits the setting.”
There are several principals in attaining a unified design. They are simplicity, scale, variety, sequence, balance, and emphasis. Using a combination of these principals while using the different colors, textures and forms of plants is how you get the perfect landscape.
Not to be forgotten is budget. We can provide guidance with regards to cost and also design projects so that they can be done all at once or in phases. All of these factors are considered before your Virginia Certified landscape designer starts the design of your personal landscape project.
The Hardscape is your usable part of the landscape. Driveways, sidewalks, patios and retaining walls all fall under this category. Hardscapes need to be planned well. The style of the hardscape as well as the material used all need to compliment the home and the surrounding landscape. The proper base will insure the surface stays true to grade. If there is a lot of elevation change a retaining wall can make the space more usable while also providing some definition to the space.
Grigg Design is Arlington’s leader in installing courtyards, patios, walkways, steps and driveways with concrete pavers or natural flagstone. We specialize in installing low maintenance landscapes with focus on outdoor living areas, giving you more time to enjoy your back yard retreat instead of working in it.
