King Garden Designs are experts at successfully designing Street Tree environments that thrive; increasing health for all, reducing storm water runoff, decreasing need for heating and cooling demands; plus beautifying your community, campus, corporate headquarters or institution. We utilize a diverse palette of plants including native and drought tolerant plantings.

We are based in the Hudson Valley. Our unique hands-on approach, attention to detail and ongoing consulting over-site create incredible results for your next project.

We meet to discuss your goals, timing and budget during initial street tree consultation. We carefully listen to your goals, wishes, constraints and concerns. A design contract follows our meeting or a pruning tree care proposal.

>See horticultural Expert Interview

With new construction we are most effective when enlisted early in the design process to evaluate the site for street trees and beyond.

We next develop a Master Plan or a specific Site Design; these organize your wishes and needs and relate them to the opportunities presented by the site.

We draw on our trusted network for their expertise: architects, consulting arborists, engineers, horticulturalists, nursery personnel and soil scientists to ensure your project is a long-term success.

King Garden Designs can scout, source and hand select superb plants and materials for your next project.

Following the acceptance of the final design we can facilitate and oversee a project installation estimate and schedule.

James Urban, FASLA is a mentor and well known for his skills in the areas of urban arboriculture and soils, including the preservation and installation of trees in the urban environment and the specification and installation of specialized planting soils for roof gardens, urban landscape plantings, and rain water management.
