Landscape Design by Mountain Brook Consulting

Mountain Brook Consulting offers design services to create aesthetically pleasing gardens that are environmentally safe, and offers solutions to landscape and plant related problems.

Start the process by arranging an on-site consultation to discuss the project or problems. A consultation may be all that is needed. If landscape plans, planting plans, and/or plant lists are desired, this meeting will be used to evaluate your needs and goals, get a feel for the site, and set a timeline for the design process.

Landscape plans save money and time by designing maintenance-saving features into the plan, and offering you the information that you need to organize, estimate costs, and prioritize projects.

Design for New Landscapes and Gardens

New landscapes will be designed to meet their owner's needs and mirror their tastes while taking into account the style of the house and its character, and that of the surrounding neighborhood and countryside.

Period Recreations

New "old" landscapes may be designed to create a sense of unity between your house and grounds. This is done by incorporating design elements from the same historic era as the building, adapting period design elements to modern uses, and by selecting landscape features, plants, and materials of the same historic period as the structure.  

Horticultural and Site Problem Solving

Susan E. Schnare has more than twenty-five years of experience as a hands-on gardener in her own garden and those of clients. An avid interest in horticulture led her to study plant science at the University of New Hampshire, and since then she has taken every opportunity to learn more about landscaping and refine gardening.
