OUTDOOR DESIGN

Form & Function

At Io, we believe that building great communities begins with cultivating beautiful, functional, contextual, and sustainable residential landscapes! Your landscape should:

Express your unique identity and character through design

Provide beautiful and functional outdoor living spaces

Be historically contextual for historic homes in historic neighborhoods

Nourish your body and soul through home gardening and edible landscapes

Provide habitats for pollinators and other beneficial life

Conserve water by using native / local-scape / xeriscape vegetation

Project Planning

The first step in realizing the yard of your dreams is to engage in our project planning service!

On-Site Meeting

We meet with you on-site and identify the unique opportunities and constraints of your landscape.

Code Review

We research any potential restrictions (municipal zoning ordinances and HOA requirements) that might impact the proposed landscape design.

Concept Plan

Our team of designers and landscape architects works with you to develop a vision for your ideal landscape. This conceptual landscape plan identifies key spaces and amenities - painting a picture for what your landscape can become!

Strategy

This exercise is more than just a pie in the sky wish-list of your yard – we work with you to discuss your budget options, and develop phasing plans so that you can move forward with confidence!

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 EM:HE 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 complimented the architecture of the house and successfully blended traditional garden motifs with contemporary styling and modern amenities.

Amelia Jones

Io 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 ❤️🌱
