Extraordinary Gardens


Our Services

Since our inception in 1975, McDugald Steele has integrated a full suite of landscape services that encompass creating, constructing and managing many of the finest residential and commercial gardens in our region.






Every garden we design is a unique creative expression.

Our services start with a client's vision and our thorough appreciation for the site and its architecture. We often work hand-in-hand with architects, interior designers, and other experienced consultants to create design concepts and turn them into master plan documents.

Through actively listening and careful planning we can create outdoor rooms that compliment and extend interior living spaces that are ideal for outdoor entertaining as well as spaces for quiet contemplation and repose.


Constructing every aspect of design

Working closely with our design team, every aspect of the design is interpreted and precisely coordinated and constructed by our Project management team. We utilize some of the industry's finest craftsmen and women to achieve Extraordinary gardens.

This team of craftsmen, truly the cream of the crop in each trade -- stone masons, carpenters, blacksmiths and other talented staff work with our project management team to coordinate the seamless execution of all construction efforts.





Extraordinary gardens evolve, change and grow. After construction is completed, we continue our involvement in each gardens development by recommending one of our garden management programs to steward the growth of your evolving landscape.

Every landscape requires attentive care to keep it healthy and beautiful. Our garden management team is among the very best in doing exactly that. We will recommend one of our management plans that will keep your garden looking its best.

We have been using organic solutions for fertilization and pest and disease suppression since 1990 and can develop an organic program for your landscape in one of our annual maintenance programs.

Let us create an Extraordinary Garden for you.

My garden is just beautiful! Thank you for all the hard work to make it just lovely wherever I turn my eyes. I wrote “Yard” for the subject of this email and decided that was decidedly not the case. It is truly a “garden” now.
