More than just a drawing
Whether you're building a new house, or just looking to change the look of an existing landscape, having a good design plan is essential. Our design staff, with over 67 years of combined experience, will strive to create a beautiful landscape for you to enjoy throughout the seasons.
Along with Residential Design, we also offer Commercial and Municipal design services. We can provide Landscape Plans for new construction, as well as redesigning overgrown or outdated landscapes.
What is a Landscape Designer?
A landscape architect or designer will work with you to create a grand plan that encompasses your whole property, from installing a new driveway to adding a porch to grading your lawn. If you’re just looking for someone to arrange your flowerbeds, you want a garden designer. At Hubingers we can do both!
What can a landscape designer do for me?
Some people are great in their yards, they love pulling weeds, planting, understanding what plants do well in certain environments. Then there are others who know how they want their yard to look like but just do not have the time to put it all together. But a designer will help with all of that plus understand the ins and outs of yard care and will create your outdoor paradise in half the time a regular person can. A landscape designer will help you visualize your property and layout the grounds in a way that makes sense and has lasting value. Unlike a landscape architect, some landscape designers will not present you with a detailed blueprint. Rather, the designer prefers to work with his construction team on-site, gaining firsthand knowledge of the grades, type of soil, the position of the sun throughout the day, and your primary use of the property.

At Hubingers Landscaping we want to make sure that your yard becomes your "Garden of Eden" and should not have a lot of headaches achieving your paradise.

Experience of the management staff
Are you looking to re-create the endless green lawns of your childhood? Or do you dream of spending your afternoons resting in a hammock by a babbling brook? Sure, maybe you won’t be able to replicate those scenarios precisely, but laying them out can help your designer create an outdoor space that brings you peace.
If you’re feeling steamrolled by the designer early in the process, it’s OK to move on. While you probably hired the designer because of his or her aesthetic, if there’s no room for your own it’s not a partnership worth keeping.
