We are Pleased to Welcome You to A New Kind of Landscape Experience... a Personal One!

As so eloquently states by Angela Overy, landscape architecture is an artistic expression not too dissimilar to music composition.  The artistic combination of plants with hard elements, such as buildings, patios, driveways, and water features can harmonize an entire site.  The end result should elicit an emotional response that reflects the aesthetic intention of the client and the designer.

"Planning a garden is like composing music.  It is not enough to jot down an abstract collection of beautiful notes.  They should be put together in lyrical phrases, then harmonious movements, and finally, linked in a grand symphony.  Think of the groups of plants os phrases, the flower borders and major groupings as the movements, and the whole property, of whatever size, as the symphony."

Angela Overy  "The Foliage Garden"

At JJKLA, we recognize that the landscape is a living, growing entity.  It changes day-to-day, week-to-week, and year-to-year.  It is continually evolving.  We feel it is our charge to thoroughly understand theses nuances and exploit the wonder that nature affords us.

Through this intimate understanding, we are able to direct your garden's symphony.  Whether creating subtle or dramatic interaction of colors, static or dynamic choreography of bloom cycles, integrating textural interplay, or developing harmoneous displays of light and shadow, we will create a wonderland that will grow on you.


A Wise Person Once Said...

"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed."

-Theodore Roosevelt-



Commitment... Excellence!



Our design staff believes that an excellent design does not just "happen." It arises from a well thought out, professional planning process. To be successful, that process begins and ends with you, the client.

Each project is synthesized to fit within the project's site variables and personal requirements: soil, slope, environment, regulations, design style, and budget.

And although we take ownership in each design we create, we never lose sight to the fact that in the end, it is still your property, your vision, and your investment.
