Each Project Highlights Our Client's Unique Tastes With High-Quality Materials, Healthy Plants, and Beautiful Layouts
We Fully Customize Every Landscaping Project with Our Explore+Design+Build Process
Creativity is the keystone of our landscaping services. Every project is built to highlight your design preferences, expectations for your outdoor space, and plans for outdoor relaxation and entertaining. We use our three-step Explore+Design+Build process to create signature landscapes for every client. At every step of the journey, we strive to bring you joy, unlimited possibilities, and luxurious design.
Every journey starts with creative exploration. Our designers will meet with you and walk through your site to see and hear your vision firsthand. Following the visit, we'll create an initial plan and budget as part of our Design/Build Agreement. If you're ready to move forward and commit to a design deposit, our design team will create a personalized Pinterest board to start crafting a detailed plan. On this board, we'll work together to find just the right plants, fixtures, and exterior details to bring your vision to life. We have thousands of beautiful images of plants, layouts, and materials available, and no detail is too small to get our full attention.
At the design stage, we transform your selections into a complete design drawing that's tailored to flawlessly match your outdoor space and exceed your expectations. Our designers will plot out every square inch with exquisite hardscapes, lush plants, and the foundational irrigation and drainage systems to keep your outdoor oasis beautiful for years to come. We welcome you to make modifications, identify changes, and give candid feedback every time we meet to discuss the landscape design. We'll revise again and again until we get every detail just right. We want you to be overjoyed with the designs before we think of moving forward.
Before construction starts, we'll send the final designs to be vetted by experienced build teams we trust. They'll propose detailed, competitive pricing and scheduling options so the project stays in budget and on schedule. Once we've found the right builders for your unique landscape, we give you a completed design package with all the pricing details and available options regarding sizes, finishes, and landscape features. Once you're in love with the plan, we'll move forward with the signed Quote/Agreement and schedule your build for completion!
Alterra is a team of dedicated professionals who love creating finely crafted outdoor spaces. The owner/partner you meet at the start of your Explore+Design+Build journey will stay involved during each stage of the project. We ensure every detail of your landscape is done just right to meet and exceed your expectations.

Jeff and his team did a fantastic job creating the perfect mid-century modern, front yard – all with water and sun-friendly, low water / low maintenance plants. We met with him once and he has was able to translate our style and decor inside our home and extend it to the front or our home. The work took less than a week and his team were professionals and they care and take pride in the work that they do. I can’t wait to do phase 2!

I found my forever home but the yard looked like a wild jungle!!!! I searched and found Jeff, told him what I wanted and POOF! My dream house had a dream yard! He listens. He keeps you up to date. The workmen are fantastic! I started with the backyard. New deck, new fence, landscape. Couple of months later we fixed up the front. My neighbors can’t stop talking about it. I can’t recommend him enough.

We are so happy we found Jeff and his team to redo our small backyard, which included taking down 2 huge trees. Jeff listens and very tactfully orients our suggestions (because sometimes they are unrealistic :p-) when necessary. From the initial planning to on-time delivery we felt confident and very comfortable. We love our new backyard!
Marguerite Storm - Addison, TX
Easy from beginning to end. After an initial design consultation and a few revisions to the original plan we landed on a design and plan that we were all excited about. A one day demo and installation was all it took for our yard to look better than it ever has. We had a party a few weeks later where we received so many compliments on it that it reassured us that it was money well spent. Thanks for all the help Jeff!

My wife and I recently worked with Jeff and Alterra to design and build a new deck and patio. Our previous deck was old and very unsafe for our son to play on. Jeff and his team were very easy to work with and Jeff’s main goal was to ensure our satisfaction. The final project came out great!
Nick Combe - Dallas, TX
Great job. Rain cased some delays but they were overcome. Jeff from Alterra created the backyard from design to execution with our involvement from a vision we had which we were able to verbalize. Personally seeing and picking out the individual plants with the owner of the company was an example of the personal attention we received. It was my wife’s project and she acted as Project Manager. But I got the majestic palm tree that I wanted!
Tim Gaffney - Murphy, TX
Jeff with Alterra is awesome! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the job that he and his team did for our home. He came out and listened to our likes, dislikes and needs and put together a plan for us that fit our lifestyle and budget. The finished product is excellent. We highly recommend Jeff.
Kelly Forman - Dallas, TX
I found these guys working in the neighborhood while jogging… I needed some serious work done on my front yard, including a retaining wall. Talked to Jeff on the job they were working on near by and he dropped by later that day… we made a plan and these guys executed with brilliance on time and on budget!!

We worked with Alterra on our backyard project and couldn’t be happier. Jeff and his crew were true professionals and so friendly. They incorporated all our “must-haves” with an amazing modern design and made sure we were happy with every detail of the project. Our backyard is now our favorite “room” in our home! We highly recommend them for any landscape renovation.
