Lise Engber

Between horticultural classes at Brooklyn Botanical Garden and a multi-year Landscape Design program at NYBG I have the skills and vision to produce your perfect garden. You might desire a backyard mixture of plantings and hardscaping, revamp a terrace garden, improve your tree pit, or spruce up the front garden by your stoop. Swale Designs can make all those wants (and more) a reality.

I will make sure that your yard becomes a beautiful and usable outdoor living room.

We have all necessary licenses for our area, and we carry insurance for all of our projects.

Some larger construction projects require special licenses and certifications. We have trusted members of the landscaping community that we work with for those special cases.

What kind of landscaping do you do?

From simple plantings, to intricate hardscaping and everything in-between. Tree pits, planters, terraces, and much more. Swale works primarily with native plants to help the ecology in your area.
