Where Serenity Grows

The key to having a beautiful home includes more than upgrading the décor and doing the occasional kitchen or bathroom renovation. It also involves having an appealing landscape design. Gardens and outdoor spaces that are designed thoughtfully and holistically can be enjoyed both from a window from your home, as well as while you’re outside in the space. At Garden Environments, we love transforming a property with features that you’ll love, whether you’re looking out on your yard or surrounded by plants, trees, and shrubs in the fresh air.

You’ve heard the phrase, “Think global, act local,” and in our view, you can’t get any more local than your own yard if you want to help heal the natural environment. Our philosophy is to plant with a minimum of 70% of the biomass being plants native to the Southeast U.S. According to the Smithsonian, this is what is required in order to have a bird habitat. We strictly avoid anything considered an invasive plant.

We are passionate about landscape design that helps our ecosystem flourish, so we take great pleasure including native landscaping, pollinator gardens, bird habitats, rain gardens, and other natural features for a sustainable landscape design. The ultimate result is one where serenity grows so you can take a vacation in your own backyard.

What Our Clients Say

Testimonials

We used Garden Environments for a large project in our back yard. We worked with Jennifer who created a design that incorporated everything we wanted from the space. She worked patiently with us on all decision points and we’re very happy with the plan and how it turned out.Beyond design, GE built a deck and firewood enclosure; installed two stepping stone paths, a set of stone slab steps, a concrete pad and a Chapel Hill grit patio; and planted one large garden and two smaller plant beds with a nice mix of gorgeous native plants. At one point, we faced a drainage issue and they were very quick to help us find a solution and add it into the project.Throughout the project, I was impressed by their effort, efficiency and precision. They worked hard to complete our project (done in two phases) with as little disruption as possible and finished everything within a very reasonable timeframe. I would absolutely recommend working with GE for garden design and landscaping needs!

My experience with Garden Environments continues to be impressive! The gardens they create are more like a piece of artwork that lives and breathes. Having a garden installed by Garden Environments is like getting and extra room on the house.

I had such an awesome experience working with Garden Environments over the past few months. From the design team, to the installers, everyone was SO friendly and really pulled off a great finished product. I couldn't be happier with my backyard. THANK YOU!

I liked the projects on their site, plus they are local, so we ended up contacting them & are currently working with them with our project. Will update this post as the project proceeds.UPDATE:The project has finally been completed. If I were ever to do it again, I would insist on starting either before winter or spring time. The project took longer than expected, due mostly to weather & a couple of their maintenance days. Ultimately I am happy with the result.
