About Us

Since 2006, we have provided clients with professional design, installation and maintenance of their dream lawn, garden and patio areas. We work closely with each client to ensure that our work exceeds expectations. We strive to provide exceptional value by boosting curb appeal and increasing your home’s worth.

At Designer Concepts, we believe it’s equally important to ensure that the trees, flowers and plants we install can easily be incorporated into each client’s lifestyle. As a recipient of the Angie’s List Super Service Award, we understand the significance of customer service and provide the outdoor living space you’ve always wanted.
