Transforming visions and ideas into beautiful private worlds.
Company Background - Who we are and what we do.

We are a landscape architectural firm that has been in business over 18 years striving for complete customer satisfaction. That‚s starts with the first call to our firm with prompt response, to our client visits with on time service and to our installation services where the client is notified every step of the way. We do not exist today unless our clients have been completely satisfied with our work ethics and enthusiastic employees whether they work on hot sunny day or in the dead of winter during a snow shower. We are here to provide a turn key solution to you.

Our people are professionals, with years in the industry and a dedication to the pursuit of excellence. George Girty, the founder and President, received his BS degree in Landscape Architecture and BLA degree from Penn State University. He has taught design for the community college continuing ed., and has juried architecture and landscape competitions. Landscaping is more than a job, it is a passion and pursuit to try and influence the way we view our world.

Our firm creates outdoor living spaces that reflect your distinctive needs an elegant and timeless landscape that fits your home‚s architecture and your lifestyle. Our engagement process allows you to be a part of the overall composition and if need be and want to be part of the installation. We want you to be involved as little or as much as you deem is necessary.

We breakdown landscape in three distinct areas: Design, Build and Maintain. In design phase you will learn about our Landscape Architectural Services. After your review and satisfaction with the design, we can then move forward with you to the build phase where you will understand our installation and construction services. Though we would all like to believe that everything in life takes care of itself is not necessarily true. Maintain is where you will understand our property maintenance which is different than most.

The mission here is the transformation of land - even quite ordinary property - into beautiful private worlds. This is where we engage you, listening to your ideas and dreams and start to create with you and inspire you to see this private world with us. To us we use the same clear, define process whether we are designing a Master Plan, an elegant garden or a secret sitting space we make sure you understanding clearly what the scope of the project will be. Our only goal here is our delight in transforming an anonymous piece of land into Great American Landscape.
