The Big Picture

We look at the whole job, from the ground up. For example, pretty flower beds won’t last if your those beds don’t drain correctly. Do you have gutters? This affects planting and bed construction. How does your yard drain? This affects bed location and turf installation. Like a house, if the slab is off, so is the rest of the structure. Your yard is the same.


Impressed With the Beauty

When we were ready to build our retirement home in the Hill Country, we were fortunate enough to find Wood Landscaping to do our work on the grounds. Craig and Matt are extremely knowledgeable about the plants and trees in this area and agreed with our point of view perfectly. Craig was the designer, and a more artistic and thoughtful architect you could not find anywhere.

We were interested in someone who shared our idea that the plantings should be mostly native, not just so that we would have very little maintenance (which is very true), but also because we moved to this area because we already loved the natural state of it and wanted to preserve and protect it as much as possible.

Matt designed the irrigation system so that the initial planting would benefit from the extra water, but also so that we could expand when we were ready to do other areas The system was designed to be sensitive to the major concern of everyone living and working in the Hill Country – water conservation.

Our landscaped areas are thriving and everyone who comes to visit us or lives on our street has been impressed with the beauty of the design and how well it fits with our house as well as the natural areas around us. We recently expanded our plantings to another area of our property where we wanted to more clearly define our lot line, but also wanted to be sure that it blended into the natural plants, didn't interfere with the wildlife and also that it wasn't obvious at first glance.

We are very happy with the results, to say the least. We have often told the Woods that we wished everyone involved in our building process worked the way they did: they were the only ones who did what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it!
