Native Landscape & Xeriscape Design

for Dripping Springs & Hill Country Outdoor Living

We offer custom landscape designs and installations as well as nursery and container gardening services. Chris, along with his team, can transform small or large spaces into self-thriving wonderlands. Solstice landscape designs tend to be anchored with hardscaping such as paths, patios, sculptures, fountains, rock work, etc. and sprinkled with native or adapted plants that are meant to survive and thrive in the Hill Country with minimal care.  We provide personal service from start to finish, and from what we hear, that's hard to come by these days.
We're honored to be featured on Central Texas Gardener! See owner, Chris Smartt, giving an interview on their website at:
Client's Space Before


One of my biggest challenges is capturing the scope and change that occurs with a landscape installation. Usually the process of photographing the space falls short. Although a rather simple design, the pictures here at least capture the impact a new look can have on even a small space like this side yard entry.

How To Get Started-- Call Chris Smartt @ 512-569-0175


1.  Call and set-up a free consultation. A designer comes to your home to see your space, take some pictures, and discuss your job. Together, you and the designer decide if the job fits (we insure your job is within our range of expertise and you decide that you like our ideas and methods).

2.  We create a custom design specific to your needs and desires and share it with you. Please be patient as you wait to see your design. We aim to complete projects within two weeks of visiting your home, but, as with any creative work it can take longer. Getting the design just right for your space is the single biggest challenge of the process and we don't want to rush this part. There is a fee of between $250 to $750 for each design. The final cost is based on the scope and complexity of the design. The fee will be applied toward the job if you have Solstice Outdoors install the design.

3.  If you so choose, WE GET TO WORK.  Your dreams will become reality before you know it! Depending on the time of year, current demands, and size and scope of your project, we schedule jobs anywhere from one to twelve weeks out from the time you accept the design. Once we begin your project, we make it a priority to complete the job as efficiently and carefully as possible.
