Get the Full Story

Sweet Melissa Landscaping personalizes landscapes for both residential and commercial clients. Our designs capture the ideas of the client and then come to life on paper, with unique and creative additions. A love of craft and design permeates every design project and often leads to innovative new uses for materials and processes. We see architecture and design as vehicles for improving people's lives and strive to find the best solution to any given situation.


The execution is key, and our professionals have a strong belief in materials and craftsmanship. Founding their own practice in 2003, Sweet Melissa Landscaping has been widely recognized for work in a variety of projects by esteemed clients including Lakewood Hospital, St. John West Shore Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House, Holy Cross Cemetery, United States Steel Corp., Visiting Nurse Association, Saint Columbkille Parish, Saint Ambrose Parish, and The Fine Arts Center.


Sweet Melissa Landscaping is dedicated to providing exceptional landscape design, installation and management services based on principle, not theory. Our goal for every project includes 

understanding the client’s vision, realizing the opportunities

available, solving site issues and/or problems through responsible design while respecting the natural environment.  As professionals, we serve our clients with honesty and integrity from conceptual design through installation.
