Our Landscape Design Process

Banyan Tree Landscape begins each project by carefully assessing your landscaping needs and goals. Owner Andrew Markham and gardener Lucretia Weems bring their years of experience together with a personable approach to help discover the best, most resilient approach to making your vision come to life.

Once we understand your landscaping needs, we create an action plan and begin moving forward. Andrew manages your project and heads his team on project jobs ranging from hardscape to irrigation, water features to lighting.

Lucretia brings her talents to bear on the garden and planting side of projects. From shade trees to berry vines, privacy screening to aromatic gardens, she selects from a wide palette of plants to create year-round interest, combining a layered aesthetic appeal with sustainable, resilient choices. (More about our resilient philosophy here.)

Depending on the project it’s sometimes necessary to collaborate with other landscape professionals in the area. When it is, Banyan Tree is proud to work alongside these landscape architects: KenCairn Landscape Architecture, Laurie Sager & Associates Landscape Architects, Inc, John Galbraith, ASLA, and Greg Covey to make your property as resilient and beautiful as possible.
