So you’ve bought the house of your dreams, but not everything is perfect. The lawn could use a bit of a pick-me-up (or maybe more). The kids are asking for a pool. You envisioned a place where you can barbecue, New Orleans-style, and hang out with friends over the summer, but you don’t have a deck or even a patio.
While you stare out at the dull and brown patch of land marring your beautiful home’s appearance, you don’t have any idea of how to begin. Here’s where you call our New Orleans landscape architects at Big Easy Landscaping to help you come up with a plan.
We have 14 years of experience in the industry at Big Easy Landscaping, so we know how to get the job done, and how to get it done right. We’ll meet with you to discuss your project, problem or vision and get you the estimated cost. Once we’ve settled on a design and a budget you’re happy with, our construction team can get to work to make it a reality.
Contact us today to see how our landscape architects can help you design the great outdoor space of your dreams. Our range of services includes drainage installation, regular maintenance, construction of irrigation systems and enhancements like serene ponds or special garden areas so we can handle all of your landscaping needs and simplify the process.
If you’re thinking of revamping your outdoor space, you may already have some ideas. Maybe you’re an avid gardener or DIY-er and you’re wondering why an “architect” is needed just to get a handle on your yard.
A good landscape architect can analyze your space and see how your project – large or small – will affect other parts of the space. This is especially important for tighter spaces or flood-prone areas like New Orleans. And while you may have ideas, it’s likely that the architect will have even more.
Landscape architects also know how to plan construction, and how to plan it around a given budget. They might also know of ways to save you money without sacrificing the design or functionality of your vision.
In your research, you may have come across the term “landscape designers.” While the two job titles may seem similar, there is one large difference.
Legally, those who call themselves landscape architects must have a degree in landscape architecture and a state license to work. The American Society of Landscape Architects has accredited a number of colleges to teach the profession.
This means that a landscape architect is trained to handle irrigation systems, steep slopes, elevation problems and designing outdoor structures, among other challenges.
In contrast, designers aren’t required to get a state license. While some may have a degree in landscape architecture, they aren’t held to the same licensing standards and thus aren’t required to know how to handle the more difficult aspects of landscape architecture. They can be certified by the Association of Professional Landscape Designers.
Here at Big Easy Landscaping, we are prepared to handle whatever dreams you may have for your outdoor space in New Orleans. Our local team not only offers great landscape architects who can help you design the outdoor area of your dreams, but also skilled professionals who can make that vision come to life.
Our New Orleans landscape architects can help you create a design with:
Outdoor decks for homes
Concrete or pavestone driveways

“These guys are the only landscaping company I’d use at this point. They do a really good job of making it MORE than ‘just a landscaping service.’” – Kent Swenson
“My wife’s garden in our backyard is her prized possession [out of] all of our property, and these guys made it even better. They came and installed some water features right in the garden (a waterfall, and other things). They also added pathway lighting. As usual, I love working with the guys here because they are always able to execute my wife’s vision to a T.” – Lester Shipley
“You guys have transformed my backyard from basically a wasted space, to now a place that I consider to be tranquil, a place I love spending time in and just relaxing. Thank you for that.” – Christopher Blair
