People want to step out of their backdoors and be transported into their own secret gardens,” says owner Curtis Atkinson. “They’re not just looking for landscaping, they want seclusion—a place to escape to.” That is exactly what Sunline Landscapes has been helping homeowners create for the past 23 years.

Sunline Landscapes is a full-service luxury landscape design firm offering expertise for every step of your project, from design and installation and/or construction to property care and fine gardening. “Our landscape designers will work with your home architect to make sure the landscape fits the overall aesthetic,” he says. They’ll also work with you to help you understand what a high-end, well-designed landscaping project involves including budget, location and process. 

Get in touch early in the planning process. “Curating landscapes of this scale and level of detail can take some time,” Atkinson says. It’s never too early to start the process. “We’ll design the property, source and procure the plant material, and store it in our holding yard until it is time to plant,” he says.

“With rising interest rates, people are choosing to reevaluate and redesign their current property. So instead of building or buying, people are creating new outdoor living spaces, installing pools or adding private entertaining areas. This requires expert design and planning to help maximize the space you have now.

Because Utah has four distinct seasons, we get to work with a huge palette of colors and the plants. We have amazing natural landscapes, so we simply complement and enhance what’s already there.
