Is my yard too small to have a Cottage Landscape?
No such thing, we can create an effect in any size of space! Our designs give you a living, breathing backyard (or front yard or side yard) that feels like it belongs. It blends in and connects you to nature.
How much Maintenance does this require?
Maintenance is minimal. If you choose to include a simple irrigation system it's even easier! We place loose mulch over the soil surface to reduce weeds. Loose mulch makes weed removal easy and tree canopies and shrub growth help prevent most weeds. Picking weeds in the spring and fall will remove plants before they become too large.
I like the Cottage, but not enough to turn my home into a national park, is this right for me?
We will turn the picture you have of your perfect space into reality. Cottage landscapes come in many forms; our designs are tailored to your wants, needs, and budget. You can experience comfortable privacy within nature, right at home! Start small, then add more at a later time, if you wish.
I don't know much about trees and plants. Is this right for me?
Of course! We walk you through the whole process until you feel comfortable. We offer everyone an opportunity to have their own Urban Cottage Landscape. The design is focused on trees' long-term health. Your primary responsibility will be watering and, with our optional irrigation system built right in, it couldn't be easier.
