Our Design Philosophy

As a design/ build company our designs focus on bringing the concepts found in nature into your landscape. A memetic approach to natural systems.

There are those that design and those that build. Here at DTE, we combine the best of both worlds by providing a truly turnkey product to our clients. From concept to implementation and management we work with our clients to provide custom ecological designs.

Rethinking landscapes through nature’s prism.

Our Lead Designer

William Roth Gibson has been a serial landscape entrepreneur for most of his life, working on lawns and landscapes since the tender age of 11. In 2013, he became fed-up with the “green industry” practices that were maligned with actual sustainability and ecological efforts. He made the bold decision to sell his lawn and landscape company to form Down to Earth Services. Since that day, William had sought to bring a new look to landscapes by working with native plants that possess regenerative benefits for our ecosystems, while keeping the aesthetic goals of his clients in mind. William’s design rates are $95.00 per hour and his standard turn-around for designs are 4-6 weeks.
