The Bethesda Setting

Not only is Bethesda an amazing place to live, but it is a perfect place to incorporate a beautiful landscape into your property. The rich history, culture, and nature makes it a perfect setting for us to do our work, and we love working with our clients in the Bethesda area.

The gorgeous Bethesda neighborhood is located just northwest of Washington D.C. and is only a few minutes train ride away from the city center. In addition to its population of over 63,000 people, Bethesda holds a bounty of great shops, streets, restaurants, and theaters. Though it is great for entertainment, Bethesda is also a hub for major health industries. As a neighbor to the nation’s capital city, Bethesda was bound to be a hotspot for history-making. One famous historical attraction is the Madonna of the Trail monument, which was placed in Bethesda by the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1928 as a symbol for the hardships of pioneering women.

Be it the thriving economy, ideal location, or rich history, Bethesda has lots to offer, and we do as well. Not only do we draw inspiration from the spectacular Bethesda setting, but we guarantee that our landscape design can match the beauty of the area as well.

Bethesda Landscapes & Cityscapes as Inspiration

As a neighbor of Washington, D.C., Bethesda is one of the trendiest areas in the country. Its ideal location right by the nation’s capital gives it a metropolitan feel in addition to art, culture, theaters, performances, and shops. The fact that Bethesda is situated so close to the capital, yet is not directly in the city center, makes it an ideal place to settle down. You still get that small-town feel even though you have all the aspects of a big city at your fingertips.

One of Bethesda’s main attractions is Bethesda Row, a cute and charming street located on the west side of the downtown area. Walking along Bethesda Row, you’ll find a collection of boutiques, shops, cafes, restaurants, and theaters. Not only is Bethesda Row great for window shopping and friendly meet-ups, but it is a great way to get outdoors. The beautiful row and surrounding areas are lined with brick and stone, with a multitude of plants and trees to offer a taste of nature. While a trip down Bethesda Row is a great way to spice up your afternoon on a nice day, it can also provide inspiration for your own landscape. The charming street sets the tone for beautiful architecture and landscaping in the Bethesda area.After a fun afternoon of strolling down Bethesda Row, hop over to Pike and Rose for fun evening activities like dining and grabbing drinks, and more shopping, of course. While Bethesda Row brings charm and quaintness to the neighborhood, Pike and Rose offers a trendy and modern area to enjoy exceptional dining, grown-up bowling, and drinking venues. You will want your landscape to match this perfect setting for fun nights in your yard, whether it’s just you and a glass of wine or a fun dinner party with friends. Allow us to help you pull inspiration from both the charismatic Bethesda Row and the trendy Pike and Rose area for a setting within your property that fits in with the rest of Bethesda and makes your landscape a place that you can enjoy.

Not only is Bethesda great for shopping and dining, but it also has a thriving arts and entertainment district. The district is bustling with artists, art venues, cinemas, live theaters, and unique art galleries. You can even find public art filling the streets. The Round House Theater attracts tourists year-round, especially those who are live-theater enthusiasts. While adults can enjoy the entertainment district, children can find themselves in a whole new world at the Imagination Stage. In an area so creative, you will want a landscape to match it. But even if you do not have a specific vision in mind for your landscaping, our team is fully equipped to create a design that is perfect for your tastes and needs, and we won’t even take credit for it.

Not only is Bethesda rich in culture and history, but it is rich in nature as well. The historically beautiful Capital Crescent Trail is a stunning path for walking, biking, running, and even horseback riding. It runs all the way from Bethesda to Georgetown in Washington, D.C. Taking a day to explore the trail is a great way to break away from city life and enjoy a bit of the outdoors, something that we aim to do with our landscaping. In Bethesda, you still have access to all the great aspects of living in a city, but when you landscape with us, you can create your own natural sanctuary as well. That is the beauty of landscaping.
