We combine our impeccable North Carolinian plant knowledge (shout out to lead designer, Pete Lucey!) with our understanding of local seasonal changes -- and with our connection to regional nurseries, creative nature-forward designs, and open communication, we are sure you'll be happy every step of our journey together.
If you're lost with all of this plant gibberish, call us! If you know which plants you'd love to see in your newest garden, get in touch!
We would love to hear from and work with you.
Our stone here is all regional, creating a pleasant panorama in terraces that offer space for edible herbs, flowers, and other plants.
Here we see what's called a "mixed border," a horticulture concept that originated in England. In this photo, our edge is a combination of shrubs, perennials, and annuals.
If you fancy a nature walk, we can ensure a beautiful experience - perhaps with some glimpses of wildlife!
Here human space borders on a meadow environment. After a hurricane knocked down the majority of the trees, Birdsong Garden Design gathered some goats to eat the weeds and any invasive species from the meadow and we replanted with native meadow plant species to restore, replenish, and revitalize it.
Meet Melina. She lives locally in a condo and worked with Pete to obtain a small-scale, intensive garden with wildflowers, herbs, native plants, and specimen trees.
This elegant garden edge contains a lush Japanese maple tree as well as perennials and annuals.
Here Pete designed a brick patio with contrasting patterns with a recycled mill stone being tucked at the edge and potted plants adorning it. Additionally, in the right-hand of this picture is a water garden - but so brim-full of plants, it's a bit hard to tell!
The patio (literally right out the back door) allows the clients to tiptoe out and watch the wildlife congregate while it also serves as a primary gathering space: perfect for a glass of wine and a sky full of stars!
This perennial border contains an ever-changing mix of colors and textures Spring through Fall, built on a sunny slope. Taken three years from the initial planting, this picture also shows drought-tolerant plants and offers a wandering path to allow nature-lovers to get in the middle of the action. The garden can be seen perfectly from the back of the house: get a view while washing the dishes!
