Welcome to Clear Blue Landscapes!

Residential landscape and garden design


Located in Sterling, VA, Clear Blue Landscapes specializes in residential landscape design and garden consultation services in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C.  Our objective is to create a design for the landscape around your home that reflects your personal style and goals.  Your outside spaces should be functional for your lifestyle.  For many residential homeowners, the prospect of imagining a landscape design and choosing plants at a nursery is a daunting task.  We can help you improve the look and feel of your exterior space and choose plants that are appropriate for the Mid-Atlantic climate.

In deciding what changes you want to make to your garden or backyard, first you need to decide what it is that you want, perhaps more color or a fragrance garden. Maybe you'd like to attract butterflys or other wildlife to your landscape, or deter them.  Do you want to grow specific types of plants and have a collector's garden or have a space where you can do photography.  There are many ways to approach what Joe Eck in Elements of Garden Design calls "Intent".  We'll discuss this with you and help sort out what types of activities you want to do in your garden. 

We'll also look at the flow through your landscape spaces - how do you move from one area to another?  What structure do you already have in terms of trees and shrubs and what is missing.  During the winter months when the leaves are gone and the plants are dormant, the underlying structure will define the space and provide winter interest.  We can also help define your views by framing an area of interest.
