About LDS

Landscape Design Studio is a professional design company based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; that is dedicated to creating:

  • Sustainable and imaginative gardens for all seasons.
  • Inspired and enduring landscapes that will grow and improve over time.
  • Gardens that are beneficial to nature.
  • Plantings that don’t require high levels of water, chemicals, or pruning, to maintain.

Now, for the first time in its history, gardening has taken on a role that transcends the needs of the gardener. Like it or not, gardeners have become important players in the management of our nation’s wildlife. It is now within the power of individual gardeners to do something that we all dream of doing: to make a difference.

-Doug Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home

Our goal is to design attractive outdoor living spaces that are in balance with the local environment: Outdoor rooms that are integrated into your home and life. We always consider the practical needs of the people who live in them—for cooking, entertaining, lounging and playing.

We enjoy a close collaboration with our clients. We help you define your vision of an ideal garden.

The plants we use complement the spaces that have been carefully designed to fit individual needs. Soil health (the foundation for an exuberant garden) is primary. Your garden will come alive as foliage colors and textures change with the seasons. Dynamic plant growth will encourage you to participate in your garden’s evolution and become a better gardener.

An extraordinary garden design requires an aesthetic eye, a sensitive response to the surrounding landscape and the intellectual ability to interpret the challenge into a functional and harmonious space

Let Landscape Design Studio collaborate with nature and you to create your own private sanctuary.
