Ecology + Design

Landscape Design & Build | Fairfield County, CT

This new home construction in Greenwich, CT required a Landscape Design Master Plan as it was completely bare yet abutted a wetland—a blank design slate that necessitated careful planning and minimal impact.

Joining the project early on, Green Jay Landscape Design developed the ecological design plan that included modern bluestone walkways in the front yard, a patio along the pool area, numerous garden areas, a raised bed vegetable garden, wetland restoration plantings, and a sod installation.

Poolside bliss!

As landscape design and build firm, we always prefer to become involved as early on in the new home construction process as possible.  In this case, we were able to coordinate our hardscape (walkways and patio) construction and landscape installation appropriately with the final phases of the home construction.

The client hired us during the winter, allowing ample time for the design to be finalized and the project to be built on a timely schedule – they were able to enjoy their new, organic landscape sanctuary all summer long!

The scale of this project might initially make you think it would require a landscape architect.  However, Jay Archer has a unique expertise in wetland mitigation, as well as a seasoned eye in designing native and ecological perennial gardens. Our master mason Aztlan can realize any and all of your custom masonry dreams with artistic expertise.

As a design & build firm, we see to it that the design is realized accurately, with expert craftsmanship and attention to detail. With Jay as both lead designer and senior project manager, we are also able to adapt and respond quickly when site conditions bring about new challenges.
