We’ll do everything in our power to go Beyond Expectations℠. It’s the standard we’ve set for 32 years.

What Is a Full-Service Contractor?

We’re glad you asked. Plenty of construction and landscaping contractors can complete a project or two for your backyard. Still, the result can look like patchwork rather than a cohesive, flowing landscape design that aligns with your home’s architectural features and your property’s surroundings. 

A full-service landscape design-build firm takes your project from idea to initial design to final walk-through. A landscape architect oversees every aspect of your design process, which might include multiple components—a patio, deck, walkways, gardens, lighting, and outdoor sound/video systems.

Our team includes:

  • Experienced landscape designers and landscape architects
  • Certified professional landscape contractors
  • Niche contractors focused on specific services
  • Account managers who oversee your project
  • Exemplary concierge customer service

Designing & Building Elite Outdoor
Living Spaces

As a full-service landscape contractor, Land of ELITE can create an outdoor living space in phases, so you can take on one project at a time or select a complete property renovation. Our team of landscape architects manages projects like creative garden spaces, exotic plant installations, and sprawling gardens. Our skilled contractors build extensive outdoor living areas packed with amenities, such as outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and lighting and sound services. We treat every project of every size with the care we expect a professional to deliver at our homes.

Whether it’s a simple deck, patio, garden, outdoor kitchen, or something as complicated as a swimming pool and tennis court with a guesthouse, our highly skilled landscape architects and contractors can offer you any level of design-build in your project:

  • Rough draft initial design/landscape sketch
  • Blueprint landscape design
  • Project management of sub-contractors
  • Complete project implementation (with our professional contractors)
  • Unparalleled service and maintenance

Our design process starts with a simple one-hour visit to your outdoor space. We will discuss your goals and options and introduce our ideas, given the geography, typography, available materials, and your budget.

We manage the entire design process, from the initial design and construction to the finishing touches and maintenance plans, and we will even work with other contractors you’ve chosen. If your chosen contractor wants blueprint plans, we will create them for you.

Balconies & Decks

Capitalize on an intelligent investment while enjoying a fantastic view from your new balcony, providing access to the outdoors and vistas beyond. A strategically placed deck can offer the same benefits, with the bonus of entertainment space. Not only are decks and balconies an investment, but they are also an extension of your indoor living environment. You can capture more space for lounging, dining and making memories with a balcony or deck.

Gardens & Patios

As land lovers, gardens are a sweet spot for Land of ELITE and the heart of true landscaping. Our team of horticulturalists and professional landscape architects can transform unusable spaces into postcard-worthy gardens.

Specialty Gardens: Do you want to attract birds and butterflies or enjoy fresh-cut flowers on your kitchen table? Do you cook with herbs and want a garden from which you can pluck ingredients? Is low-maintenance your thing? We discuss your vision and make plant selections based on your goals.

Custom Patios: Patio spaces allow you to enjoy the surroundings. From pavers in various colors and textures to natural stone, our team works with a wide range of high-quality materials for long-lasting and beautiful patios.

Entries & Walkways

Entries and walkways welcome you and guests to your home. Consider how many times you use the entryway. Is it a pleasant experience—or do you barely think about coming and going? An artfully designed entry and walkway will give you a sense of pride and enjoyment every time you pass through. Guests will feel special, and family will think, “There’s no place like home.” 

Custom entries and walkways can include lush, green grass, garden features, natural stone, and more. We see that your landscape ideas as the project owner are heard and delivered exactly as you want. With Land of ELITE, you get a concierge experience, which means we take the time to understand your needs through every step of the design process and beyond.
