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…

After a series of cheap landscape jobs and failed do-it-yourself attempts at creating a beautiful yard, we finally decided to call some professional landscapers. After meeting with several well-known names, we decided on Exterior Designs. What set them above the rest was that we could see Ms. Katz’s passion for her work through her extensive knowledge and creative ideas. She and her team worked with us on every small detail during the planning process, and when the work started, Beverly was there every day to make sure everything was going smoothly. We went from a backyard with no defined space to a gorgeous patio with a pergola, fountain, and beautiful trees, plants, and flowers surrounding it. We could have never done this ourselves, and we thank Beverly and her wonderful crew at Exterior Designs for their hard work in making our backyard a true oasis!
