What Makes Us Stand Apart?
Since 1979 Van Zelst, Inc. has aimed to make landscapes more livable and memorable by enhancing the natural beauty of the outdoors.
We work with a wide variety of clients, including homeowners and businesses, to provide thoughtful landscape design, superior planting and hardscape construction, and meticulous maintenance of outdoor environments. As an award-winning landscape architecture firm, we believe in working as a team to create harmony—in the landscape and throughout the process.
Founded and led by David Van Zelst, we have built our reputation on exceptional client service. We pride ourselves on our ability to listen to, anticipate and respond to our clients needs.
At Van Zelst, we develop landscape designs as a team, drawing on the expertise of landscape architects, engineers, horticulturists and other specialists. One landscape architect leads the team from concept through installation and beyond, ensuring accountability and client availability throughout all phases. This is key to a healthy landscape, since two or three years generally go by before plantings have fully matured.
Your project is your own—unlike any other. That's why we don't have a signature style or a template we follow. While we do incorporate best practices and focus on plants that will thrive in this area, we work diligently to bring your ideas to fruition.
Even our most discriminating clients aren't as demanding as we are. That's why we grow 90% of the perennials we use in our own greenhouses. Why we've painstakingly researched lighting, stone and appliance providers. And why we use our own in-house engineers, stone masons, installers and maintenance crews.
As you'll see from the pages of our landscape design gallery, the only common theme in our designs is a reflection of each owner's dreams. For each project—large or small—our work begins and ends with the client.
