Every design we create is one of a kind, inspired by its site and the deep longings of the people who will enjoy it. We travel widely to work closely with our clients through a signature design process that includes:
Envisioning, creating, and refining the design
Collaborating with planners, architects, engineers, contractors, and artists
Managing the project
Our expertise extends far beyond design. We will be on site to make sure that the finished landscape is exquisitely crafted, from siting structures and sculptures down to the artful placement of boulders and elegantly composed plantings. Our designers are passionate and knowledgeable plants-people with a commitment to sustainable and environmentally sensitive design.
Master Plans and Specialty Gardens
JMMDS’s designs for organizations include parks, arboreta, museums, memorials, cemeteries, children’s gardens, and academic and corporate campuses. We offer visioning workshops to stakeholders, and Julie Moir Messervy gives lectures to help raise development funds if needed.
JMMDS designers travel widely to work with our clients on their property. For homeowners who prefer the convenience and affordability of remote design, we offer the Home Outside online service that allows us to provide expert landscape design via the internet.
For people who’d like to design their own properties, we created the Home Outside mobile app for iOS.
