Landscape and Garden Design York, PA

This contemporary residential landscape design is located in York, Pa. The modern landscape design for this home contains a contemporary modern pergola, water feature, outdoor kitchen, Travertine patio, sculpture garden and outdoor fireplace. The Cor-Ten steel sculpture of the dog is by the artist Dale Rogers.

From the homeowner:

“In short, Doug Myers did an incredible job for our outdoor project from conceptual design, detail design, lighting, materials and color consultation, to planting selection and oversight of project implementation through completion. We would recommend him to anyone without reservation or qualification. We wished to create outdoor living space beyond the boundaries of our very traditional home on the exterior. Doug quickly grasped the challenges of blending a very traditional exterior with the contemporary art and look of the interior, addressing limitations by covenants, creating privacy and limiting traffic noise. We expressed desire for a pergola, a water feature and conceivably, an outdoor fireplace. The artistic designer, Doug Myers, took it from there and was back to us shortly with a rough conceptual we found amazingly responsive to our tastes.

“In the process of detail design, we collaborated well together and Doug was always professionally polite, yet sensitive to our poignant views on colors and material options. He recommended materials, colors and suppliers and arranged for us to visit, view and make our selections, yet politely opining if he thought our choice would not work. His lighting, planting design and selection was even more difficult for us to fully grasp yet he led us through this with aplomb and we bought into the flow and form nicely.

“Throughout the construction process, Doug remained adroitly involved to ensure that his design in its reality was responsive to our expectations. As in any project, there arose issues that he made sure were addressed to our satisfaction.

“From a brief first meeting and tour of our house, Doug created for us an oasis of outdoor space and architecture that transitioned so well from the traditional exterior to our more contemporary style. We challenged him to incorporate some outdoor sculptures that were not originally contemplated and he could not have done a better job. Doug Myers exceeded our expectations in every way. Not having met Doug before this project, today we hold him personally and professionally in the highest regard. He truly creates artistry in his design.”
