The Living Elements of Design

Add color and life to your property with softscaping from Barmby Landscape & Design.  We work with the best local nurseries to hand select the highest quality trees, shrubs and flowers to fit with your property’s specific conditions and design elements.

Softscaping comprises the horticultural (plant) elements of landscaping.  Softscape elements are generally complemented by hardscape design features, such as stone walls, patios or walkways.

All aspects of softscaping are considered with any Barmby Landscape & Design plant installation – from color coordination and scent to plant size and placement.  We incorporate native plantings that provide year-round interest in your garden, featuring multi-season foliage and habitats for local wildlife, such as birds or butterflies.

Native plant installations are usually heartier and provide the best results for your softscaping project.  The list of our favorite plants, trees and shrubs goes on and on!  We have suggestions for every landscaping situation – from full sun to full shade, sandy soil to clay.  We can also guide you in choosing softscape elements with specific characteristics, such as evergreen, fruit bearing, flowering, and more.

Common softscaping installations include:

  • Turf or sod
  • Annuals
  • Bulbs
  • Ground cover
  • Perennials
  • Shrubs
  • Trees
