Residential

Spanning across the American paradigm is the familiar vision of the outdoor gathering, where family and friends, young and old, congregate to cook together, play together, share stories, eat, drink and enjoy the quiet backdrop of a beautifully appointed yard. Properly planned and placed stone patios, perimeter gardens, wood terraces, outside seating areas, or meandering organic pathways skillfully dotted and brushed with handsome plant life frames your very own bucolic lifestyle and defines modern day relaxation.

For generations in Richmond, HG Design Studio’s Landscape Architects and Civil Engineers understand that your house is more than just an appreciable asset, and that the outdoor rooms and swimming pools we help design, create and build will ultimately be where you nurture your relationships as much as you do the flowers in your garden. Whether it's elegant al fresco dining over candlelight, splashing cool water from the pool on a hot day, creating a new grilled barbeque masterpiece for friends, sipping iced tea on the terrace or lingering over an after dinner conversation near the fire pit, HG Design Studio knows Virginians are spending more time outside in their yards, and our expertise is creating your outdoor "place in the sun" specific to your landscape design personality.
HG Design Studio staff listen not only to our client and his/her vision…be it a front entrance redesign to improve curb appeal or a backyard hardscape that seamlessly connects the back door to the lawn, to artistic strategies for standing rainwater issues and retaining walls…but we then interpret that vision, and "listen" to your property's terrain, in a sense, and convey on paper what your land will yield.

HG Design Studio cultivates your personalized comprehensive master plan step by step, from design through construction, and implements what you imagined phase by phase, always keeping in mind our clients' fiscal considerations and the innate human connection to nature.
