Sarah provides landscape design and consulting services to residential clients whose projects range from historic renovations to new subdivisions with a blank slate. Her master planning process begins with an analysis of your site’s function, scale, elevation and drainage. Then, considering your needs and desires, she develops a thoughtful, cohesive plan that transforms your outdoor living space into your very own personalized and unique urban oasis.

Initial Consultation

Urban Gardens views every project as a unique opportunity.  The process begins with an onsite meeting to view your space, discuss design possibilities & constraints and determine the scope of the project.  We believe that knowing how to both listen and question is critical to a thorough understanding of the goals for the project.


After analyzing and documenting the existing conditions of your space, we explore creative, preliminary design ideas that are compatible with the architectural style and materials of your home. We then collaborate further with you before synthesizing the final design and materials. By working together, we can create a unique outdoor room that makes the most of your space and becomes an integral, unique and personalized extension of your home.


We offer a construction implementation option through GTO Landscaping with whom we partner.  This allows us to monitor construction at critical points, act as your liaison and control the entire process from its initial vision to the finished product.  This ensures your project is built according to the design intent.
