When you enter your property is there a pleasant connection between your house and the surrounding landscape? Does it feel inviting and provide the distinct feeling of being someplace extraordinary? All of us, when returning home from work or other outing, want to feel comfort, happiness, security, and stability. Our home is our sanctuary to which we escape from the stresses of everyday life.
Landscape Architecture is the process of developing a livable, attractive outdoor environment. A well executed landscape can positively influence the quality of life for those who use it. Landscape planning allows the designer along with the client to evaluate requirements and address site conditions. Of the many design considerations at work, perhaps the most important is ensuring that the various elements of your landscape work together. The relationship between indoors and outdoors is designed to reflect the tastes of the client and the architectural style of your home.
A landscape that is executed piecemeal can result in acres of disappointment. We can play an important role in helping you turn your property into a functional and esthetically pleasing outdoor environment. I truly see the residential landscape as an extension of your home that provides a comfortable setting for its occupants.
I chose the name Sitescapes as a reflection of my design philosophies. One of which is site specific. I approach every project as a unique opportunity to take the clients needs, along with existing site conditions and transform these into innovative solutions. Solutions that will enhance the use of your site creating its own individual charm. Your house and garden are not considered separate entities but seen as one cohesive unit where horticulture and architecture are joined to create a harmonious spatial experience. The landscape that results is an experience in space and time. The motivator is the client, the backdrop is the site, and the outcome is one that the family derives great pleasure from.

My front landscape needed a lift and after interviewing others, I knew immediately that Neil was the person I wanted to hire. There are plenty of landscapers to choose from but none with Neil’s artistic talent. I gave him a budget and trusted his vision completely. I felt relaxed knowing that I never had to question Neil’s plan. I was particularly impressed that Neil salvaged almost all of our existing plants and used them in areas he felt would enhance our property. Neil was in constant communication with me and his employees were friendly and hard working. Initially, my husband was not sure about which landscaper to choose, but he now admits I made the right choice. He LOVES our front yard and enthusiastically shows it off to anyone who visits! Thank you Neil for a wonderful experience and my husband is already talking about having you do more work for us in the future.
Sitescapes completely landscaped and remedied site problems at my new home. Neil was receptive to my needs and budget and his artistic vision was spot on. The neighbors have been unanimously, strongly complimentary. Everything has been growing beautifully. It was done in 2 phases and Neil has always been responsive to questions. I’m very glad I employed Sitescapes.
Sitescapes Landscape Design provided a landscape plan that reflected the integrity of my home, specifically the age and style. The design included all the natural aspects of the property, as well as desired features. Mr. Markey’s knowledge of the period my home was built and the surrounding properties was highly respected.
I found Mr. Markey to be very professional and knowledgeable. His attention to detail and vision for enhancing a property is exceptional. He offered several budgetary options to complete the project, such as options for materials and installation. I will be completing the design in stages, some of which has been realized. I look forward to full completion and continued work with Sitescapes.
We love the new design Neil created for our backyard. We had been struggling with a slope, erosion, an old brick patio and minimal landscaping. Neil did a great job of designing a gracious walkway to our door, and a large brick patio surrounded by evergreens, perennials, varied design elements, and it has changed everything. We now use our patio as an outdoor room, and love every season of the colors and contrasts in the surrounding beds. He and his crew were dependable, courteous, and met all our expectations. Thanks, for all you did at our house.

Most homeowners strive to make their homes a reflection of who they are, inside and out. However when it comes to their yards, they are often barren or outdated. A well planned landscape not only extends the use of your outdoor space, it creates a heightened sense of space, sense of place, a sense of being within something special. A personal sanctuary if you will, a destination outside your home to be enjoyed by all. In designing the front yard the design begins with the entry sequence. Starting at the driveway working its way to the walk leading to the front door and backyard.
