Walks and walkways
Walkways provide the utility of connecting gathering spaces, but when professionally designed they gain additional purposes.  For more than just utility, walks can be designed to create a sense of entry, visually direct traffic, and provide a welcoming feeling to visitors.

Retaining walls and outcroppings
Retaining walls are built for a number of purposes, both functional and aesthetic.  Tall retaining walls can often be terraced, creating a layered effect that adds visual interest and breaks up a large wall face.  If terracing is an option or the wall is less than 4′, natural stone can be used, rather than a man-made product.

If there is a structural requirement or if there is no way to terrace the wall, engineered block walls are built using concrete block with geogrid reinforcement for soil stabilization.

Seat walls and garden walls
Seat walls and garden walls are an elegant way to create additional seating or visually separate gathering spaces.  Seat walls can be constructed using natural stone or concrete products, and can even include built-in lighting, water features or fire elements.
Landscape lighting
With countless options available, a landscape lighting system adds warmth, safety and utility to any outdoor space.  In addition to the traditional incandescent fixtures, LED fixtures have become more available recently due to decreasing prices.   LED fixtures and transformers provide an increased feature set and significantly reduce energy consumption, making them an excellent option for saving money while being environmentally conscious.
Piers and pillars
Piers and pillars are a great way to add interest to your landscape.  Masonry pillars and piers can be built using natural stone, brick, or cultured stone.  Manufactured block piers are also available in kit form, making them a cost-effective dry stack option.
Outdoor kitchens
There is no better way to bring the indoors out than by building an outdoor kitchen.  Ranging from simple to elaborate, they can include grills, wet bars, refrigeration and sinks.  Like seat walls and pillars, a custom designed outdoor kitchen can be built using natural stone veneer, brick or cultured stone.  Pre-built concrete units are also available with a number of customization options.
Ponds and water features
Water features add natural beauty and tranquility to your landscape, and provide even more ways to enjoy the outdoors.  Water features can include ponds, streams, waterfalls, and fountains, among others.  The sound of moving water is serene, and a water feature in your landscape will provide an escape from day-to-day life on your very own property.
Decks are an excellent solution to increasing the usable area of your outdoor space when there is a sizable grade between ground level and the grade around your home.  A creative deck design also further improves the look and feel of your property.
Shade structures and pergolas
A shade structure (or pergola) provides a refuge from the hot summer sun, and increase the amount of time you’re able to enjoy the outdoors.  They come in many shapes and forms, and we design shade structures to play off of the architectural features of the architecture of your home.  Click the link below for more information on a custom-designed shade structures by Treetops Landscape Design!
Grading and drain tile
We have the capability to grade a commercial or residential property for proper drainage and watershed.  In addition, we can facilitate the installation of a drain tile system to handle buried outlets from a structure, such as downspouts and sump outlets.
Plant bed preparation and installation
We prepare all of our planting areas in a way that gives your plants the right start and allows them to thrive.  We add plant starter soil and rototill into your existing topsoil to help oxygenate the planting area, then spread mulch to retain moisture and protect plantings.
Planting trees, shrubs and flowers
Our plant material is of the highest quality and is sourced from local suppliers.  By using plant material grown in the area, our plants are acclimated to the growing conditions where they are planted.  In addition, because they were started in soil with a high clay content, they will flourish more easily once installed in a prepared plant bed on  the job site.

Every tree or shrub we install is guaranteed for one full year from the date of installation,  provided it is given proper water and care.
