Landscape planning for large residential properties

Finding experienced landscapers in Oregon to transform acreage around a home can be difficult. Choose EarthTech to develop a long-term landscape master plan for a beautiful residential property.

A home with acreage—where to start?

If you have an oversized lot or acreage, you may be overwhelmed with the options for your residential property. “What’s feasible with a place this big? How do I make it manageable? Where do I start?”

Or if you have a large site to build a new home, how do you plan the landscape to complement the style and structure of your new house?

There are many decisions to make for the future of your property. It can be overwhelming to understand the impact of soil, wind, sun, drainage, plants, sustainability and much more. Count on the EarthTech landscaping team to help you see what’s possible for your site, listen to your ideas and put a comprehensive plan on paper—a landscape plan which can be phased in over 5 to 10 years.

Start with the big picture

We’ll start with a site review to design the master landscape plan. We’ll capture your ideas and wishes, then help you see what’s possible now and in the future.

Our landscape design expert will walk your site with you. We’ll discuss your ideas and concerns, then lay out everything from existing buildings to elevations; to water and soil considerations, existing trees and plants; water flow and streams; to views, sun angles and wind patterns.

Whether your residential property includes forest or meadows, overgrown acres of blackberries or rolling hills of pasture, EarthTech will develop an accurate site base plan to incorporate your wishes and offer new and potential design concepts.

EarthTech’s experience with commercial landscape design and installation in Oregon—including water management and irrigation plans—provides a solid background in planning and installing landscapes for large residential properties.

From irrigation systems to supplementing well water or capturing rainwater, to choosing low-maintenance native plants, we’ll ensure your plan includes what’s needed to help your beautiful landscape thrive.

A landscape master plan at no cost

When you choose EarthTech to install your landscape, our design fee will be credited back to you. With a large residential property, you’ll have peace of mind with a thoughtful landscape plan as a roadmap to the future of your country home and property.

“We knew our dream landscape design was going to be a long and sometimes difficult project to tackle. Scott and Fabian worked with us every step of the way, from existing drainage and retaining issues, to modifying the design plans and adding new ideas mid-stream. They … made our dream landscape a reality.
Every team member … was a hardworking, kind, and joyous person. We are sad not to see them every day. In our eyes, EarthTech is the Go To Team to get your project done right.”
