Landscape Services

At Blackburn Nursery we have been helping to beautify Topeka and Northeast Kansas since 1936. We are known for our excellent quality trees, shrubs, evergreens, perennials, roses,annuals, ornamental grasses, and groundcover; however, another important service we offer is professional landscape design and site planning. Selecting a desired plant is only half the task, the other half is selecting the proper location for the plant. That is what a professional landscape designer is for.

What design services do we offer?

  • Our design team is made up of horticulturists with degrees including Mechanical Engineering, Horticulture and Business.

  • We offer state of the art computer aided drafting (CAD) as well as computer video imaging which allows a client to view a representation of a design applied to the home before it is installed.

  • We also offer on-site short consultations for smaller projects such as placement of a few new trees or shrubs in an existing landscape.

Why is a Professional Landscape Designer Important?

  • Landscaping is not just a pick and stick task any more.

  • A professional landscape designer adds the same value to a project as the traditional architect does, only on the home's exterior aspect.

  • Professional designers adhere to professional standards and assure quality control.

  • Proper site planning and analysis assure that all areas of a home, lawn and landscape are designed to work together to produce a harmonious uniform appearance to the entire site.

  • A proper landscape will showcase the the home (the largest investment made) and add value to the property.

  • Consultation with the designer before a project ensures that value is added to each project in a timely fashion and prevents possible homeowner dissatisfaction after the construction is completed.

  • Other site considerations a designer can address, include designing to minimize excessive heating or cooling, design of open areas to maximize scenic views, or provide recreational or quiet time areas.

  • The professional designer integrates areas of design to achieve a consistency of parts across a common theme. The result is a comprehensive, cohesive landscape design that can be combined with the architecture of the home or business to create a unified package, each area complementing the other.

  • A designer's knowledge of plants takes into consideration growth habits, size at various stages to maturity, common characteristics with other features in the landscape, and compatibility with the a design of the home itself.

Seasonal Reminders
