We created and implemented a master plan for the landscape at this property.
This relaxing retreat offers spacious areas for entertaining and smaller patio spaces to unwind with family and friends. The property is bordered by a festive mix of shrubs, perennials and annuals which create a sense of enclosure while still feeling open and welcoming. There is also a raised vegetable garden for growing vegetables and herbs to provide fresh, healthy food throughout the season.

This commercial property located in Fairfield Connecticut, is planted with a subtle balance of shrubs, perennials and annuals that create a welcoming feeling that help to enhance the overall look and image of the buildings. Seasonal décor and accents help draw the eye towards the businesses to create an appealing image that welcomes customers.
Wheter you're looking to add a rustic fire pit, outdoor kitchen or a pool area, AGLD's staff will make the garden rooms an extension of your home.
We created a master plan for this project, during the second phase the pool area was renovated. Incorporating a petite pool house, pergola, fire pit and patio with an outdoor grill island. Layers of plantings were used to screen the adjacent property, incorporating Emerald Green Arborvitae and mixture of dwarf re-blooming hydrangeas and perennials.
Whether it’s a small scale pollinator garden, native meadows or an extensive network of rain gardens our staff thoroughly enjoys when the opportunity arises to design with big picture ideas to help improve our environment.
This waterfront property on Long Island Sound was impacted by hurricanes Irene and Sandy, with erosion threatening the dune that protects its salt marsh. The homeowners choose to explore options to protect the dune, AGLD designed and installed a series of sill walls backed with plantings of native cordgrass, to create a living shoreline, the first of its kind in Connecticut. Additionally the house was elevated to meet the new building codes, and the adjacent landscape was redesigned to respond to this change, incorporating a native coastal meadow on both sides of the cottage. The slightly wild look of the landscape allows it to blend with the naturalized areas throughout site.
AGLD has licensed landscape architects on staff to assist with design of rain gardens, conservation plans and living shorelines, we also provide in house installation services. Several members of our staff members have complete the NOFA Accredited Organic Landcare Professionals program and are available to assist you with maintaining you’re home gardens.
