Peter Bailey founded Artistic Gardens in 1992 in order to turn your landscape dreams into reality.

This enables him to fully understand his clients' goals, priorities and budgetary constraints in every aspect of the design process. Peter is then able to creatively work to achieve the best possible result - one that will be enjoyed for years to come.
This hands-on approach ensures the highest standards of excellence - standards Peter has been recognized for time and again.

The Design Process
The process and our relationship begins when you decide to set up a complimentary initial consultation with Artistic Gardens.
The initial consultation takes place at your home or business, with our founder and landscape architect Peter Bailey.
Here, Peter integrates your ideas with his own professional expertise to determine the basic layout for the exterior design. He will also discuss the budget and various costs. You will be presented with a company portfolio providing samples similar in scope to what you desire.
If you elect to have Artistic Gardens create a personalized landscape plan, the initial meeting is followed by a tour of the property.
This allows us to envision the site and desired design in greater detail. Click here to see a sample exterior of a home before we began work on it. The next step involves the creation of the landscaping plan catering to the individual home and your desires. Because of the 15-20 hours of work involved in creating your plan, there is a minimal upfront cost involved, which we will discuss with you. The landscape design plan is a scaled drawing which can include hardscape suggestions, plant types and locations, as well as pictures of mature plants.
You will next receive a proposal to utilize the plan, complete with costs and a schedule.
At this point in the design process, you can accept or suggest additional changes to the proposal.
Upon acceptance of the proposal, implementation is carried out by our team under the leadership of founder and Landscape Architect Peter Bailey.
Concluding the process, we conduct a walk-through in which we give you detailed instructions regarding maintenance & care for your new garden.

"Joe and I are writing to tell you how pleased we are with our new landscaping that you designed. After our new sidewalk was installed, we knew we wanted to landscape the area, but after consulting two different landscape architects, we became discourage. They just didn't get it! We met with you and told you what we liked and we knew you got it! When you came back with the landscape drawing, we did not have to make any changes, it was exactly what we wanted. Within a few days the plan was executed and it was perfect. Thank you for making it so easy. I love looking at the front of the house. You have truly enhanced it. From a customer point of view, it was so nice working with you. No "Attitude," but lots of expertise! Please feel free to use us a reference."
