Dancing Grass Designs LLC is a professional landscape design firm that specializes in sustainable practices. We create artistic habitats in the form of residential and small commercial gardens. Our services include site analysis and design, planting and hardscape design, and sustainable installations.

We also provide consultation services to homeowners, builders, and architects pursuing LEED for Homes certification. Dancing Grass Designs recently completed a design for a LEED for Homes project that received Gold certification. The garden included nearly 90% native drought-tolerant species and received two LEED Innovation and Design points for exemplary performance for water reduction (credits SS2.5, WE2.3, and ID3). The project also received the maximum number of points allowable under the Environmentally Preferable Products credit (MR2.2).

The garden of our featured client is located in Montgomery County, Maryland. The client’s primary goal of the project was to create curb appeal by improving the appearance of the front of her home. To achieve this we removed invasive plants such as Berberis thunbergii (Japanese Barberry), changed the shape and size of the planting beds, improved the guest entrance experience, slightly re-graded areas in front of the house to improve drainage, added soil conditioner, installed a new flagstone walkway and added several hundred new plants.
