Douglas Lockwood- Award winning Landscape Designer

 I have been a professional landscape designer in Williamsburg, Virginia since 1987.

I enjoy designing in different styles & have won many state, regional & national awards. A highlight in 1999 was winning co- Best in Show with Marney Hall, whose floral talents won her a gold medal at the 1998 Chelsea Flower Show in England. I have also won the Virginia Society of Landscape Designers Best Landscape Design Award three times, Best in Show at the Maymont Flower Show twice, a National ICPI Patio Design Award and numerous beautification awards.

I also have written a number of landscape design articles for national gardening magazines, which were published. Additionally, I had my design work featured on , in national paver brochures and in national television commercials.

I retired from the building side of the business after 30 years. I now exclusively offer landscape  plan view designs, 3D renderings with walk through viewing and design-over-photo plans to homeowners across the nation who desire to improve the curb appeal of their home..... at a very affordable price!



Professional consultation and planning is often the best money you can spend on your property.  A well planned and well maintained landscape is a growing investment that appreciates over time. 


There is nothing more frustrating than putting your heart & soul, not to mention your hard earned money, into improving your property, only to be totally disappointed with the results.



That look you saw in a magazine.... make it turn out right the first time!


Trial & error DIY landscaping can be very expensive, not to mention time consuming.

I offer both plan view landscape plans, as well as, design over photo plans of  your new landscape design allowing you to visualize the finished product in advance.


Get it right the first time...for a very modest sum (just $125.00  to create a design-over-photo plan from a photo you provide); you get a great design that eliminates the risk of wasting your time & money and still not getting results.


Tell me what climate zone you live in, the type of look you like, other desires & I will design a plan just for you. Have a certain look in mind? I will make it happen!
