Landscape Architecture/Outdoor Construction

Our Design/Build department adds Elegance, Enjoyment and Value to Your Home

At Hoffman Landscapes, we believe solid, long-lasting relationships are the result of our attention to detail, communication skills, and best practices. We welcome your ideas as we help you plan a unique vision and achieve true practicality for your property initiative.

Landscape Architecture

Licensed Landscape Architects on Staff
Homeowners seeking to create landscape projects will greatly benefit with Hoffman’s Total Approach. Your primary advantage is our ability to handle the entire process from your first thoughts and expectations to concept through design and execution. Our staff of landscape architects (with licenses in both Connecticut and New York) as well as several designers, guarantees your vision will be successfully fulfilled.

Hoffman’s Total Approach
You can avoid landscape architects who only design the project. You do not have to bring in a parade of contractors and trades people to complete the work. Hoffman’s one source makes the project not only progress faster and smoother, but it will maximize your budget. Hoffman brings you seamless service with proven experts on site, all managed by one Project Manager who is immersed in every detail and schedule.

There’s no finger pointing between separate companies, no overlapping or duplication of effort. No do-overs. Think of the convenience this offers you. What’s more, we have no allegiance to any one supplier, so we are not locked in to sell you nursery inventory; rather, we are free to select what you need, and we go wherever needed to find the best plants, trees and materials to best suit your project.

Planning, Zoning and Wetlands Issues
Hoffman’s track record with building inspectors, conservation officials, and an understanding of the permitting process in towns across the three counties we serve, is unmatchable. We have been successful in obtaining permits that other companies have given up on. What we provide is comprehensive not expensive. It all adds up to benefit you by speeding up the process of completing your project.

A call to Hoffman Landscapes can get you started right now. Whatever you have in mind for your property, we can help make your vision a reality. It’s simply the most efficient way for you to handle your property needs.

Outdoor Construction

Once the design is complete and permits are pulled, our end-to-end project responsibility continues with the actual construction of your project. Our professional team of building experts follows the design plan and begins creating reality, productively in a timely fashion. It requires great skill and insight to transfer a design from computer plans to an actual construct. This result is based on our well-versed experience in efficient building processes from staging the project installation to its follow through workflow.

A Well Oiled Team Machine
You have the advantage of skilled craftsmen many of whom have served apprenticeships, earned degrees, licenses and certifications. They provide to you a wealth of knowledge and experience. The fact that you have one dedicated Project Manager means the design concept doesn’t get lost in the details of implementation. Our skilled supervisors, foremen and craftsmen create a transformation that is exciting to watch.

We Expect the Unexpected
Of course, there are times during construction, when some unexpected issue presents itself. Should this occur, we have the expertise to make quick, efficient field decisions to keep the project moving forward. Again, our comprehensive approach allows this kind of response when needed. Hoffman makes great outdoor projects happen from design to finish.

Testimonials

"Hoffman Landscapes created a beautiful patio for us about 5 years ago and it’s still beautiful today. The workmanship and professionalism of the staff and management was outstanding. I recommend them to anyone who asks, but their work speaks for itself when people see it."

Will Homes, Darien 

"We could not be happier with Hoffman Landscapes. We built our house 2 years ago and the builder botched the yard, pool, driveway, etc. We hired Hoffman and they completely redid and transformed our yard and pool. We now have an outdoor space that we love and use. Hoffman has a team of excellent landscape architects (we used Matt Biron) and we have been so happy with his vision. Not only is everyone at Hoffman extremely professional, but they also give you the personal attention that makes working with them enjoyable. They maintain our yard beautifully and plow/shovel our driveway during the winter. You know what you're getting with the annual contract and they always deliver. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a landscaper!"

Melissa Baker, New Canaan

"Hoffman stands out in an industry where it is often difficult to find people to trust. Brian Cossari and Hoffman are great resources for us. They truly go out of their way to make our lives easier. We look forward to working with them for years to come."
