Our Approach

Our simple five-step design and build process makes creating your dream outdoor space a breeze.

1. Vision and goal setting

You will meet on-site with a landscape designer to discuss your goals for the landscape design project. If you need inspiration, check out our previous client work.

2. Design planning

The designer will return to the Borst Landscape & Design headquarters to assemble a landscape design plan for your review and approval. Once approved, you can rest easy while we contact suppliers, liaise with subcontractors, and prepare estimates.

3. Proposal review

Before we get to work, we’ll send you the updated proposal, including estimates, for approval. Then, it’s time for installation!

4. Installation

Our landscape crews begin by carefully performing any necessary site preparation for your property. Next, the hardscape elements of the design are installed. These can include dry-laid stone walls, fire pits, patios, borders for landscaping, walkways, and much more.

5. Finishing touches

Finally, our planting crews will arrive to put the finishing touches on your home, which can range from privacy hedges to foundational plantings, perennial gardens, and more.

What Our Customers Say About Our Landscape Design Services in NJ

Hired them to redo my front walkway with blue stone, and could not be happier with the result. Their workmanship was simply superb and to top it off the crew was very courteous and professional throughout and left the site absolutely spotless. Their cost was very reasonable too compared to the other estimates I had. I will most likely hire them as my regular landscaper as well.

We wanted to transform our plain backyard but didn’t know where to start. After meeting with several landscape companies we decided on going with Borst, and what a good decision it was. Our designer and project lead, Dave, was really exceptional. He created a design that exceeded our expectations and then led the project through to completion. The install team treated our house like it was their own. As you can tell by now we are a very satisfied Borst customer.
– Dennis McGrath

Mr. Tuttle was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional, cooperative and communicated well. He really listened to our likes and dislikes, our overall goal, and produced a project reflective of that goal. In fact, the project exceeded our expectations. Carlos and his crew worked very hard and were very pleasant and helpful. I will definitely recommend your company to my family and friends, and look forward to working with you in the future.

Everybody we came in contact with was great, however, David Beasley was exceptional. He is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. He was on top of every detail, addressed all of the issues promptly, was very easy to get in touch with, he is extremely courteous, accommodating and attentive. We enjoyed working with Dave so much, that we are trying to come up with the next project. The entire crew was also great and pleasure to work with. Our back yard is unrecognizable and we enjoy it every day. Many thanks to David!

We have used Borst Landscaping for many years for projects such as new front paver walkway, irrigation and drainage, and new plantings. In 2019 we transferred our lawn maintenance as well so Borst takes care of all our landscaping and hardscaping needs. From owner Mark and the entire team, it has always been a pleasure to deal with Borst and we are extremely satisfied with their work.

We were very happy with the team – very smooth, easy process. The crew was great! Work looks beautiful.
– Cathy & Rich Parker

We hired Borst to transform our backyard incorporating a pondless water feature in full view of our outdoor patio. The entire team from Dave Beasley to the installation crew were the epitome of professional. The months-long project was supervised by Borst pro’s who executed the project according to specs. When there was a hiccup in plans, Dave stepped in to rectify or change the outcome. The project was delivered within the projected and expected overages in cost. To this day, the end of 2019, Borst honors the terms of their contract for warranty of services. We continue to utilize Borst for seasonal maintenance of shrub, bush, and tree care. Every employee is respectful toward us, the customer while showing great care for the landscape surroundings. We highly recommend Borst for all landscaping needs.
