Problem yards are our specialty!

A consultation allows us to understand your immediate and long-term landscape goals. We also address any questions and concerns, while presenting viable options to suite your taste and budget.


A custom design will transform your outdoor area into livable space. We are known for our ability to design master plans that can be carried out over an extended period of time.


Under the direction of our experienced designers, the landscaping/build team installs plant materials, builds courtyards, arbors, pools, and installs hardscapes with quality materials.


Maintenance includes pruning to reshape and encourage new growth, thinning out overgrowth, correcting problem areas due to poor lighting or drainage, and servicing your lawn.

What our Clients are Saying…

Beverly Katz of Exterior Designs, Inc. performed the layout, design and architecture for my garden when I moved into my home some four years ago. The residence is a Frank Lloyd Wright design and Beverly coordinated the drainage, concrete work, irrigation, lighting and all of the planting and ground cover. Also implemented were two fountains and a grand gazebo. The garden was magnificent from the day she delivered it to us and now in its maturity, it presents with even greater grandeur. Moreover, Beverly and her staff have maintained and seasonally groomed the garden with skill and devoted interest. On a personal note, it’s been a pleasure to work with Beverly and she is always available and ready to resolve any problem related to bringing perfection to our home. Every room in our house has a large window view of the garden, so even if we never step outside, we see the landscape all day and all evening. We never draw a shade or curtain. Her work brings us pleasure and is a wonderful addition to our every day.
