About — Design Process

design process

St. John Landscapes specializes in creating gardens that are beautiful from the inside out, and has been for over 20 years. Your new landscape will be thoughtfully designed to complement your existing internal design, architecture and neighborhood. Most importantly, it will be an extension of who you are, fulfill your desires for its purpose and remain an inviting space your family and friends will enjoy for years to come.

Getting to know you...
Patricia St. John welcomes the pleasure of meeting you, listening to your hopes and dreams for your garden and bringing your vision to life. In addition to more than nine years of experience in landscape design, she also has an extensive library (approximately 600 design books!) which she will encourage you to explore and draw inspiration from.

Patricia St John Landscape Design Conceptual Plan DrawingIt's a plan. After studying your site, reviewing your questionnaire and listening to all of your thoughts, St. John Landscapes will present you with a conceptual plan for your space (view sample). Upon selecting a particular design, you and Patricia will get together again and visit nurseries, public gardens, neighborhoods, etc. to choose all the elements necessary to make your new garden come alive: trees, shrubs, perennials, patio surfaces, wall treatments, arbor designs, and more!

Ready, set, grow!
Lastly St. John Landscapes will present you with a final plan including all implementation details. Patricia will remain in close contact with you until your garden installation is complete. Also, if you wish, she will happily recommend licensed contractors to install your garden.
