Walker Creek Garden Design


We largely work with residential clients with properties of all sizes who are in need of a landscape plan and its implementation. Walker Creek is comprised of a team of professional landscape contractors dedicated to excellent workmanship and beautiful outdoor spaces. Hilarie closely manages all aspects of a landscape's installation, and carefully guides each project with a client's wishes and budget firmly in mind. This insures a highly efficient, creative, and robust process.

We offer a range of services to accomplish a variety of landscape goals:


This can be useful for those clients with an existing landscape that needs rejuvenation and renovation. It is also very helpful to those who may want help identifying a management or maintenance program, or who have recently acquired a property and wish to acquaint themselves with its possibilities, constraints, weakest and strongest elements.


We provide master planning and smaller area design for properties in urban settings as well as for larger rural landscapes. The design process, undertaken in close association with our clients, includes several on site meetings during which a client's needs and expectations are carefully noted. A base plan is created, identifying all existing elements that are to remain, such as driveways, terraces, walls, and plant material. We then collaborate with the client to add program requirements, planting and design solutions, and a preliminary plan is created. After a meeting to go over this plan, and addressing any changes and budgetary requirements, a final plan is begun. This includes illustrative three dimensional drawings, photographic overlays, plant information sheets, and color rendering to clearly convey the vision for the property. A project may be best implemented in phases, and these will be identified along with budget and cost projections.


We oversee, coordinate, and manage all aspects of the project's installation. We partner with talented and specialized tradesmen for quality stone work including terraces, walkways, stone walls, and driveways. We also handle earthmoving, planting, fencing, water conserving irrigation, and lighting.
