Our Projects

What our clients are saying...

Andy Monaco

It was such a great pleasure working with Shalae and Io LandArch on not only one, but two Extreme Makeover: Home Edition builds! She was able to listen, and hear, our needs as the client, quickly turn around a clear, cohesive plan, and execute that plan and vision during the install of the landscape. The final landscaping product truly complemented the architecture of the house and successfully blended traditional garden motifs with contemporary styling and modern amenities.

Amelia Jones

Io LandArch worked with me over the course of a winter to develop the ideas I had for my yard and the vision I had for living in it. They added artistic and historical elements that are appropriate for the style and time period of my house. I appreciated their monitoring of the installation process so that the end product was as successful as the exciting plans suggested it would be. I am really happy with the results.

Lauren Weiss

I wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you to you and your team. Our yard is exploding with plant growth, all the grasses and sages are so happy. Zack, who wanted to sell the house before because he hated the maintenance now loves sitting in his little private grass zone and watching the bees. This yard is already bringing us so much happiness ❤️🌱

Flo Bravo

Working with Io LandArch was incredible. Their team is dedicated and highly responsive. When I emailed Sydney with a list of questions, she took the time to call me and talk through everything. The designers listened to our wishes, respected our budget (they didn't present options that weren't realistic!), and delivered a beautiful design. We are so excited for our new backyard!

Emily Lippincott

Natalie at Io LandArch was the perfect partner for my landscape design project. The home I purchased had never had a proper landscape design done and was over 50 years old so really needed some help. Natalie spent tons of time with me, understanding what I wanted and changing things as I changed my mind. She also helped manage the bid process and the construction, offering expert advice along the way. I highly recommend her and the team!
