Landscapes of All Sizes
Landscapes can be done in stages. Some of our favorite landscapes are the smaller intimate landscape gardens. They can be simple or lush, depending on your needs and space. Your budget can dictate the size of the plants you start with from 15-20’ large specimen trees to 8-10' trees, as can whether or not you want to do all or some of the labor yourself.

For our larger landscapes, we work hand-in-hand with concrete or masonry contractors to incorporate patios, and other hardscapes into your outdoor living space. To make this outdoor room distinctively yours, we can add selected plant varieties such as Concolor Fir, Emerald Arrow Bosnian Pine, Kousa Dogwoods, Fragrant Magnolias, and Rivers Beech in addition to the more typically used Norway Spruce, Blue Spruce, Ornamental Pear, or Sunset Maple.

Landscape Design Plan
For the last 46 years, our design service has included a free plan or one that can be purchased.

The free plan has always been our staple. The plan stays at our office and you can schedule an on site visit to discuss with Ed or Brandon your plan and see exactly what plants you like and want to purchase. You can also view our own gardens during your visit to get an idea how your own landscape might develop.

Our plans are for purchase with the cost dependent on the time involved.

Turf Establishment Services
We prepare and install turf, and provide irrigation by our contractor. Our most common method of turf establishment is to fine grade, rock rake, seed fertilize then blow straw to ensure the seed retains moisture and does not blow away. Spring season (before June 10th) or fall (August 15th - October 15th) is the best time to seed.

Commercial Landscapes
Given a reasonable budget and preferences/needs by the owner, Rhine and Daughters will develop a commercial plan at no charge or minimum cost.

We will bid a well-designed architectural plan if given the opportunity to have some degree of involvement in the landscape design to ensure the owner gets the best job for their money.

Many times our adjusted plan, which owners use as a second option, is chosen over the more costly architectural plan. The difference being that we incorporate 46 years of horticultural experience with our design expertise. By growing many of our own shade and ornamental trees it allows us to be cost competitive and use plants that do well on commercial sites.

It is always recommended that the owner or owner's representative make a visit to our nursery to see some of the plants and materials that will be used in their landscape.
