At Gardens by Trista, Inc., we understand how exciting your new endeavor can be for you --- whether it is a new construction or the revitalization of an older landscape! 

Our landscape design and installation is devoted both to the creative design of your garden space and to the environmental responsibility we share as caretakers of your property. Beautiful landscapes demand sound visions and schematic plans. We begin first with an in-depth client meeting. Your needs and desires are vitally important to us, and this on-site meeting provides us with a feel for what you are looking to accomplish with your landscape as well as what is functional and aesthetically pleasing to you.  Our site analysis is comprehensive. We take digital photos and note measurements, sun orientation, elevation and soil samples. We pay particular attention to native plant observation and existing garden observation.  


After the on-site visit, we begin using this research to inform our design. This phase of the project may involve some telephone and/or email correspondence just to keep our lines of communication open and to feed the creative process. Once a plan is developed, we will arrange a meeting at which we present our design to you and provide you with an itemized quote. We seek your insight and feedback because we know that flexibility and the willingness to make revisions is a valuable part of the experience. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and our ability to listen to our clients.  Our goal is to use our expertise to make this process as simple, as pleasant and as rewarding as possible so that the landscape that is created for you meets your desires, your needs and your terrain. 

  Our business operates from our home base in Gilboa (in southern Schoharie County), but our clients and services extend to the counties of Greene, Delaware and Albany.  We love the Catskill Mountains as much as the beautiful river valleys and foothills that surround us. For us, our work is a labor of love. We believe that you will see this in all that we do for you.
