Residential Design

From large estate master plans to simple courtyard gardens, Lankford Associates creates unique gardens that respond directly to the site, the building and our client’s needs. We tie the architectural design into the garden and the garden into the home, blurring the boundaries between the built and living. Our plans are often built in stages over years to meet tight budgets resulting in a garden that looks as if it was built in its entirety.
