At Dana Designs we focus on creating sustainable and environmentally responsible greenspaces that meet your landscape use requirements and garden aesthetics. We focus on native species selections that will thrive in your micro-climate and soil conditions. These considerations are especially important close to Rhode Island’s shoreline landscapes where a difference of a couple hundred yards, sometimes even a couple of yards, can result in radically different growing conditions. Our plant selections and environmentally sensible growing strategies will result in a hardier landscape for you with reduced maintenance costs and fewer chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Your landscape will become a habitat for beneficial butterflies, insects and birds.
We believe that organic design is a process, an interaction between your aesthetic and use preferences and our knowledge of the local flora, all with an eye to appropriate construction investment and maintenance cost. We work with you to create an ideal interaction between your living space and your natural environment.
Commercial and Public Landscape Design
Our landscape design concepts reflect your business’s unique professional requirements and preferences. We take the time to learn about your company’s interaction with the public to design a landscape that reflects your products and services in complete harmony with your natural setting. We’re sensitive to your budgetary requirements as well and we work with you to create a great looking natural environment for your organization that’s cost-effective to install and most important, because our designs are harmonized with your specific local conditions, inexpensive to maintain.
Dana Designs has created numerous public and commercial landscapes in the coastal Rhode Island area including:
- Frosty Dew Observatory at Ninigret Park, Charlestown, RI
- Theatre-by-the-Sea in Matunuck, RI

Residential and Private Property Landscape Design
Our goal is to imagine landscape designs that create a seamless transition between your personal living space and the natural environment that surrounds your home. We strive to blend your usage requirements and aesthetic choices with hardy native species selection and careful consideration of your soil conditions and the micro-ecology of your property to produce a great looking greenscape for your family. Using native species selected specifically for your property’s conditions maximizes the hardiness of your plantings and minimizes the cost of maintaining your natural environment.
