Landscaping Design and Build
At Dolan Landscaping, the design process begins with a client meeting to determine the objectives and goals of the client. We then assess the site to determine the b best way to utilize the current resources of the site such as existing plants, material, and natural topography of your landscape: trees, rock formations, elevation changes, etc. We look at which elements we can add, i.e., new plantings, retaining walls, patios, walkways, irrigation, lighting, water and fire features. Dolan Landscaping can both design and build your perfect outdoor living space.
Turning Landscape Design into Action
We will put together a plan based on the resulting design that takes into consideration all these elements to meet your landscaping objectives. We want your new landscaping to be both beautiful and functional and a seamless extension of your home, a place where you can retreat to unwind and recharge. While there are countless elements that can create this outdoor living space, below are some of our favorites.
Water features are very low maintenance when properly installed: they bring the tranquil sound of water and nature to your property. When you work long hours and don’t always have a chance to get away from it all, the soothing sound of water can help bring relaxation. Water features can also enhance your property by bringing in desirable wildlife such as birds. They can be designed in so many ways with many varied materials to fit any size space: anything from a large patio side pond with waterfall to a small bubbling vase. Adding a water feature to your design will make your landscaping unique and one of a kind.
Fire pits can be a wonderful way to add value to your home. Most people young and old can appreciate a fire pit. Fire pits create ambiance, a place to get together, and a beautiful focal point for a full landscape construction or as a standalone element. Fire pits are warm and cozy and inviting; they can be anything from an open stone fire pit to a full standing fireplace with a chimney to a gas-fired table top.
If you truly love the great outdoors as we do, we can design a full outdoor kitchen or room. They are great for entertaining, expanding your living space, increasing your home’s value, and a great way to curtail restaurant spending. We can add all the elements of your indoor kitchen outside such as fridges, sinks, stoves, countertops, wood-fired pizza oven, etc., all custom designed to work in your space for a great outdoor entertaining experience. An outdoor kitchen can become the centerpiece of your outdoor living space, allows you to create memories that last a lifetime.
