Residential Landscaping

For over 40 years, Oakland Design Associates has been designing and building beautiful custom landscapes for homes throughout central Ohio.

Oakland Design Associates provides custom landscape design solutions for your yard, creating a space that fits your lifestyle and needs.

Our talented landscape design staff is equipped to help you with the following projects:

  • Complete landscape design and installation for new homes
  • Additions or renovations to existing residential landscapes
  • Patios, walks and driveways – using manufactured bricks or pavers or natural flagstone
  • Retaining walls – using manufactured or natural wall stone
  • Seasonal maintenance – edging, mulching, pruning, bed cleanup (unfortunately, we are not equipped at this time to provide reoccuring landscape maintenance) 

Work with an experienced landscape architect or designer who will manage your project from beginning to end.

If you just need some advice or guidance about your landscape, we offer a consultation service for $70 for the first half hour, and $70 ever hour after at a pro-rated rate. Please note, we are a mid to large size design and install division with a $2,500 project minimum, and increases depending on the size of the project. There is a design fee associated with landscape plans that starts at $300 and increases depending on the size of the plan. Click here for more details about the design and consultation process.
