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.

What a morale booster! I have been putting off getting the yard in shape after the winter because I really don’t have the motivation. I called Exterior Design and had them come clean out the beds, trim everything back and add fresh mulch. What a difference. I have been motivated to buy new potted plants to add to the front yard. Now it looks great!!! I decided I was going to attack the back yard last weekend. When I went out there Saturday morning, I decided to have Exterior Design give me an estimate on doing the basics in the back yard. There is nothing like a clean, up- kept yard to energize you. I am so happy I made this decision. I am not sure how many sales people they have but ask for Beverly, she was really easy to work with on this project.

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!

I loved your newsletter. Let me add – you did a fantastic job solving the drainage problem I inherited 10 years ago when I purchased my house in Algiers, LA. Now I have a beautiful garden and not a drop of standing water. YOU ARE A GENIUS – and you may always say that I said so.
