Our Services

Landscape Design

Your landscape design should bring to life the vision you’ve been dreaming of, and for us, it’s even more successful if it’s even better than you imagined. In addition to realizing your vision, we consider the elements of an exceptional landscape design include:

  • The use of many elements to create a harmonious and balanced garden space that is a unique original, suited to you and your life.
  • Beauty in simplicity through the use of quality materials implemented with creativity, skill and experience.
  • Assurance that you will continue to enjoy your outdoor haven year after year, and that it will continue to improve with maturity and time.

At J. Garfield Thompson Landscaping, we understand that each property and client requires individual attention and consideration. Some projects can begin with a brief consultation while other projects will need a full set of drawings, and we provide the design service that is best suited to your project.

We begin our relationship with an onsite consultation to capture your vision and determine the best design for your property, and James continues to oversee the entire project no matter how small or large.

Stonework and Construction

Natural stone in a garden can create an ambience and structure that will give the garden a classic beauty, and so is an important element in each and every landscape design. J. Garfield Thompson has the skill, and an artist’s eye, for choosing the right stone for each project.

Water Features

Water in a garden can be the design component that gives the largest impact and focal point to a property. It adds another dimension to your garden, offering the added element of sound, movement, and reflection.

The soul of a garden is in the plants. The proper choice, combination and arrangement of trees, shrubs, evergreens and flowers make a garden a natural joy to experience.
