Design & Planning
At Burnham Gardens, we recognize that good design and a successful outcome are dependent on a collaborative effort with our client. Whether it’s adding a new herb garden or creating a grand entrance for a large estate. From hourly consultation to quick sketches or developing long term strategies for phasing projects to fit your budget, we can help you implement the ideas and goals for your property.
All projects start with a site visit, an opportunity to get to know each other, walk the property and share ideas. Visit our Contact Us page to let us know how we can be of service and to set up an appointment.

I recently invited [Burnham Gardens] to design a patio space in an area where a large old maple tree had been taken down near the house… the spot was a little uneven and the grass did not grow well there. The design they created was a perfect solution for the best use of that space and included a small retaining wall and a lovely patio with a fire pit area. It meets our needs perfectly and they really respected my request to stay within a modest budget…The work was completed very quickly and on budget….we couldn’t be more pleased!!
Terry did a great job on my new Goshen stone walkway! Perfect!
I have had several wonderful experiences with Burnham Gardens. They have repeatedly understood my vision and provided landscaping that is beautiful, functional and elegant. They listen carefully, offer suggestions and work closely with you to achieve the final result that you desired. Their experience is evident as they adapt the plan to your current site and incorporate unexpected opportunities. The team [Burnham Gardens] have skillfully negotiated the differing concepts between my husband and myself. We both are very pleased with our new landscaped shade garden, rock garden, front lawn and amazing slab steps descending our hillside. It is a pleasure to be in our gardens. Plus, they stay on budget.
So pleased with the garden created by Burnham Gardens! They worked with me from the plant selection to final touches and follow up care! They were meticulous in the planning and landscaping to get the best garden in the spot I had. I now have a beautiful low maintenance perennial garden to enjoy while relaxing on my porch! Thank you guys! And, yes, the garden still looks great! Thanks so much!
We’ve used Burnham Gardens on two occasions: the first was to transplant a small tree and move some perennials, and the second, to add a large stone to the bottom of a spillway so that the water would fall directly into the pond. With both projects they were able to schedule a day that was convenient to me; they came on time; they completed the work expeditiously, they were fun to work with, and the quality of their work was exceptional. We plan to ask them back in the fall for another project—for all the above reason, and, because they offer an expertise in a wide range of garden needs from design to stone work to routine maintenance.
We have been very pleased with the collaboration on our design requirements and how [Burnham Gardens] takes these and turn them into our vision. They are always on time, very respectful and they are very committed to a successful project. They have also done a great job with fall and spring cleanup in our gardens.
