Since 1988, Cathy D’s has specialized in designing, building, and maintaining outdoor living spaces, within budget and on time.
Extending your home’s living space to the outdoors not only increases the value of your property, but also is often a better option than buying a larger home. Outdoor rooms, patio kitchens and fireplaces, water features (including ponds, fountains, waterfalls and streams) all enhance your outdoor experience.
Working with small yards or large estates, traditional or contemporary, Japanese garden feel or even tropical, Cathy D’s understands that your yard is your own private getaway and we work hard to fulfill your vision.
Cathy D’s can design and/or remodel your existing space to include water features such as low maintenance re-circulating pond systems, new sprinkler systems, and colorful, multi-textured deer-resistant plants that can bring an area to life.
Our designers meet with you and determine a landscape plan. Respecting your budget, a phased project, implemented over a period of time, is entirely feasible. For larger projects requiring a design, we agree on a design budget and start the drawing process. For smaller projects we prepare a detailed bid. After the bid is accepted, our crews go to work building your outdoor living space.
The first step is to conduct a detailed site analysis and formulate a brief. This is normally carried out during a couple of meetings with our client.
The next stage is to prepare a detailed design plan showing placement of plant varieties, numbers and spacing and a planting schedule.
In most cases, our clients are happy to accept our recommendation about who should execute, landscape and build the garden.
