    Looking for a company to help our 7 unit condo with a small front yard, maybe 500 ft/2, remove the lawn and plant a xeriscape happening. The lawn is square and the curbside is on a corner so no trees. Also, since we’re in the city, we’d like to discourage dogs from using it as a bathroom as they do now.

    We are looking for a landscape designer to help map out our yard. We have about a quarter acre to landscape around a pool and multi-purpose court. The yard is flat with few plants, lots of dirt and absolutely no shade… Ideally we’d be able to give it a “park-like” feel. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you!
