Dutch Touch Landscape, designs landscapes, builds landscapes, installs landscapes and maintains landscapes. An enduring landscape must consider many variables such as soil condition, drainage, sun and wind exposure, pest management, irrigation management, and most importantly the lifestyle of the owner(s) and their intended interaction with the landscape being created. The interaction of hardscapes – manmade structures such as walkways, arbors, patios, water falls, ponds, barbecues, fountains etc with the softscapes- the plants, trees, shrubs, flowers is what creates the outdoor living space of your imagination. We can help you select the species that will work in your climate area and on your property and recommend to you what not to use and what to avoid.
