Landscape Design and Enhancements

New Castle’s Design and Enhancement Division is composed of a group of landscape designers, graphic artists and plant experts.  Using the same high-quality standards that are prevalent throughout our company, we have built a highly educated and trained design team that maximizes the skill sets of each individual staff member. Working as a group, we create concepts that are uniquely suited to the needs of the space. Whether it’s a simple sketch, a digital rendering or a 3d walk-through, you can trust that our team will deliver a project that is thoughtfully laid out and professionally installed. Our goal is to counsel our clients through the entire design and build process, from the initial consultation to the final walk thru.  We will continue to form great relationships with all our clients while providing unparalleled service and quality.

Beyond the landscape design, we put thought into the accessories that will complement your new space. 

Outdoor lighting– A properly designed and implemented lighting plan will add immeasurable value to your home and yard.  Using high quality fixtures and professional installation, landscape lighting creates a dramatic effect to your property showcasing plants, and architecture, as well as, improving your homes outdoor security.

Outdoor sound systems-Outdoor entertaining is at its best when music or the big game can be streamed throughout your property.  Hidden speakers suited for the elements allow for consistent sound quality no matter where you are sitting.

Water features-The sound of water in the garden will enhance a soothing, relaxing atmosphere.  Water can also transforms noise pollution, drowning out the sound of nearby traffic, construction….or a noisy neighbor.  Bubblers, waterfalls, streams and ponds

Pots/Sculptures/Garden Art-We will advise you on proper placement of your garden pieces to add a finishing touch to your space.  It can be a bold focal point, or a surprise hidden gem that will keep the landscape dynamic and exciting.

Our Design team is dedicated to using advanced design and build techniques. With the use of our computer imaging and 3d design software, our clients can view their ‘virtual landscape’ before the first hole is dug.   What sets us apart is our team approach to designs.
