Landscape Design

North Georgia’s long warm season makes it possible to enjoy outdoor living practically year-round. If your outdoor space consists of a big lawn, a concrete slab, and a few mismatched chairs, you’re missing out!
Greg Hutcheson Landscaping can transform your outdoor spaces from “ho hum” to “holy cow!” We create landscapes that reflect your personal tastes and lifestyle so that you can get the most out of your yard.

Where Art and Science Meet

Professional landscaping is an art as much as a science. When it comes to science, our professional team of designers and landscape architects consider your soil type, the amount of direct sunlight a space receives, and the level of maintenance various plants require, based on your preferences, although you can consider our landscape maintenance services as well!
And then there’s the art. We choose high quality plants for their foliage and flowers to provide year round color, and we place them strategically to create layers of interest, provide shade in just the right spots, and improve your outdoor view from every vantage point. The artfulness of landscaping is about balance, shape, color, lines, and texture, which combine for an overall effect that’s visually stunning, timeless, and practical.

Good Landscaping is More Than Just Another Pretty Yard

A beautiful professionally designed landscape in front and out back has far-reaching benefits. It enhances the beauty of the neighborhood and increases the resale value of your home. Strategically placed shrubs, trees, and vines can vastly increase the energy efficiency of your home by providing shade and creating microclimates close to your exterior walls that reduce solar heat gain and lower your cooling and heating bills.
Most of all, a beautiful and functional landscape can enhance your quality of life, especially if you love spending time outside. We create inventive outdoor living spaces customized to the way you envision using them, from a simple patio embraced by shade trees where you can enjoy your coffee in the morning (or a cocktail after work) to an outdoor entertainment oasis with built-in seating areas, walking paths, fire and water features, and ambient outdoor lighting.

Planning Your Design

The two most important factors to consider when developing your landscaping vision are your budget and how you plan to use the space. Think about the outside activities you enjoy and how your outdoor living space might best accommodate those activities. We can design and build raised-bed gardens for the avid green thumb, create lush butterfly or hummingbird oases for the wildlife enthusiast, and develop beautiful, serene spaces for relaxing and entertaining.
Our design team will meet with you on-site to discuss your vision about how you want the space to feel and function, and we’ll work with your budget to produce some detailed drawings to scale, which will include plant choices and arrangements as well as special features like hardscapes and water features, all based on the lot dimensions, the placement of your house, and the scope of the project.
