Beautiful landscapes begin with an exceptional design. We are a landscape design firm serving Southeastern Wisconsin and beyond. Award-winning principal designer James Drzewiecki, APLD and landscape designer Hannah Paulson specialize in custom landscapes created especially for you — from small intimate gardens to large estates. We have been recognized as a Best of Houzz award winner each year from 2012 to 2018. James is one of two landscape designers in the state of Wisconsin to be certified by the Association of Professional Landscape Designers.
Our goal is to create the perfect outdoor environment for you and your family for generations to come. Our designs are tailor-made to suit your lifestyle, including: gardens, outdoor living areas for lounging, dining and grilling, fire pits, pergolas, swimming pools and even lighting. We approach every project as a unique challenge to meet and exceed your greatest expectations.
Our design style encompasses strong geometric lines, bold flowing curves, innovative architectural elements and unique plant compositions. At Ginkgo Leaf Studio, we believe exceptional landscape design is creating art through nature’s inspiration. This is our passion.
