Redbud Development is a different kind of landscape company. We focus on you and the custom design and build of your outdoor spaces to meet your needs and your budget. The size, scope and material selections for your landscape construction project can vary greatly to match your style whether that be rustic, contemporary or traditional, etc. as well as your preferred level of maintenance - usually the lower, the better! Your custom landscape design plan will typically include some hardscape elements, some softscape elements and sometimes a special water or fire feature.
Hardscape elements are the fixed solid wood and stone components such as a patio or deck, outdoor kitchen or pool and are also the bigger ticket items.
Softscape elements are the growing, ever changing components such as trees, shrubs and flowers. These elements take up less of the budget but they also allow you to change the look and feel or color scheme of your space more often than you would replace a hardscape component.
Plan Smart, Save Energy & the Environment
Redbud understands that landscape design is also fundamental to protecting our environment. The green design choices that you make for the outside of your home can greatly impact the energy efficiency of the inside. For example, did you know that the placement of a single shade tree help reduce the cost of cooling your home? Each time you tackle a home improvement project, inside or out, you have the opportunity to improve the environmental impact of your home.
The objective of sustainable design is to avoid depletion of our natural resources, such as water, energy and raw materials. The concept of sustainable design and being environmentally responsible has become very popular in recent years. Some may recognize it better as the “Go Green” movement or you may be even more familiar with the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mantra.
Your landscape design can help you incorporate some key sustainable design options. Work with Redbud to bring in some sustainable practices to your project.
Storm water runoff plans are very important and are more and more being required by local planning and permitting authorities. But there some very simple and cost effective methods such as:
using native species plantings
water harvesting tanks
geothermal heating/cooling systems
green roofs and/or green walls
One or more of these might be right for you.
