And so it begins. After 25+ years working with Charlotte's most outstanding purveyors, it is time to share the wealth of information I have harvested over the years in real estate, publishing and public service with friends, clients and comrades. To kick off Jan's list, allow me to introduce to you what I consider to be the finest commercial and residential landscape design purveyor in the region: Henry DeBoer and the team at DeSignia Landscaping.
As dreamily described on their website home page, the artisans at DeSignia take landscape design to new heights. You can take a virtual walk through their work through the extensive video and photo galleries on the website at designialandscape.com, and imagine taking an evening stroll on a DeSignia-built paver walkway with fragrant blossoms in the air and presence of a tranquil waterfall all within reach.
DeSignia Landscaping specializes in landscape consultation, design, installation, planting, irrigation, lighting and maintenance for both commercial and residential clients. The firm is a LEED certified landscape firm with organic programs, and they regularly create sustainable innovative designs that can transform your dream landscape into a reality. Some of their areas of expertise and experience include fireplaces and fire pits; hard-scape designs like retaining walls, walk ways pavers and patios, outdoor kitchens; water features, pergolas, arbors and fences.
Owner Henry DeBoer holds a Bachelor’s degree in horticulture and has been involved in the landscape industry for over 30 years. He began his work under the direction of his father who owned a prominent design-build firm north of Charlotte. As the team’s leader, Henry contributes his vast experience in every aspect of DeSignia and maintains a current level of knowledge by attending association seminars and programs. His networking strengths have created a diverse and growing client base for DeSignia.
DeSignia Landscaping has received more than 11 awards from the Southern Spring Show, including The People's Choice and Best of Show, Home-a-Rama at the Sanctuary 'Gold Award', and has participated twice in the WCNC Levine Charity Homes Event.
