Who We Are

Exceptional landscape design is creating art through nature’s inspiration. This is our passion. A landscape design by Ginkgo Leaf Studio is the result of our professional vision and our understanding of design principles, construction practices, hardscape materials, and plant knowledge. Every design element has a reason for being. Scale and proportion, texture, color, and light are all part of the overall composition. When successful, you know it, because the space feels right. We believe that landscapes should be experienced emotionally, as well as being beautiful and functional. In the process, we help our clients to reconnect with nature in their new garden.
