Gary Haygood with clients Clyde and Larsie after landscape architecture remodel with pool, hot tub and landscaped plants in the background. “When we selected Gary Haygood to develop a landscape and pool plan for our house on the reservoir, we had several important criteria (as most people would):  preserve/enhance our lake view, provide an attractive hardscape design, incorporate the pool into our outdoor living area, and tie it all together with flower beds and plantings. We liked that Gary developed several concepts for us which we reviewed and then made a final selection. The pool/spa design he developed is quite creative, incorporating bubblers adjacent to our living area to provide constant water sound, and containing a shallow beach area for parking lawn chairs in the water and wading with toddlers. We have received lots of favorable comments on the entire design. We wanted a pool and backyard that was so attractive it just draws you out there, which was achieved. When out of town visitors arrive, they all seem to end up in the pool within 10 minutes of getting here.”

“Gary was a pleasure to work with as my wife and I navigated the process of searching for and eventually purchasing real estate in our preferred location. He was patient with us as we able to more clearly define in our minds exactly what we were looking for, and his efforts to learn more about the specific market in which we were interested was evident as he brought many properties to our attention that appealed to us. As an added bonus his expertise as a Landscape Architect was quite helpful in pointing out the advantages of potential homesites upon which we might build a home as well as imaging the potential for a better presentation of existing homes by better use of landscaping.”

Showing outdoor fireplace/tv living room area, swing with pergola and intimate seating in outdoor courtyard.“We would recommend Gary Haygood for all your landscape needs! He took our vision and improved upon it. Gary created the perfect outdoor living space for us. It’s a place our whole family enjoys, and it’s a great entertaining space. We love cooking outside, and the kitchen area works well. The large living space with a fireplace and t.v. are an extension of our home. We’ve found that it handles a large crowd well, but it’s also comfortable for more intimate gatherings. He took a personal interest in the outcome of our design, and he worked closely with the contractors to ensure the quality was what we expected. Gary is great to work with!”

Lovely backyard with pool, spa, multi-tiered terraces and retaining walls designed by Gary Haygood.“To say we’re happy with Gary Haygood’s design would be an understatement. We are thrilled with the final look! Gary helped us determine the best views from our backyard then he created a design that really takes advantage of those views. He used the same brick from our house in the pool area, so the pool and spa looked like they had always been there which is exactly what we wanted. Our backyard is now so inviting, peaceful and beautiful, and we love to entertain outside now. We would highly recommend Gary Haygood for any landscape project. He’s creative; he listens; he’s always available; and his work is impeccable.”

Homeowners of the Bayou Master Plan Completion project.“Working with Gary Haygood is an absolute pleasure. We first started working with Gary after construction of our guest cottage. Gary worked with our architect and builder to bring the garden, our home, pool and cottage into one beautiful flowing design. We love to entertain and the evenings spent in the guest cottage garden are always special and magical. We are now working on our front yard and driveway with Gary and the designs he has presented are spectacular. He understands our needs, our goals and his work has truly made our home and gardens unique and wonderful.”

“I highly recommend Gary Haygood. He was very professional, developed a great design, listened to my wife and I and modified the design with our suggestions. Design worked great to control erosion around my house. Gary also recommended several vendors for associated work (yard work, fence repair, tree removal, etc.) they were great to work with. I would use Gary again and have recommended him to my friends.”

“I’ve had a chance to work with Gary on the planning phase of my backyard and pool project. His attention to detail and ability to think of things outside of the norm is valuable. I haven’t decided to move forward with the project just yet, but if and when I do, I’m confident Gary will do a great job in a timely fashion, while addressing each and every one of my needs.”

Henry B.—Ridgeland, Mississippi

Showing stairs leading down to reservoir.“Our process began with wanting our backyard to feel finished and usable. We didn’t have specific plans, and Gary gave us so many excellent ideas to choose from. Gary worked hard to provide a great look for us that met our needs and style while keeping cost well within our budget. The contractors were very friendly and kept the yard very clean during the process. Gary was excited for us as the project continued, was present to ensure quality work, offered input, yet was never offended if we chose differently. We are very happy with the money we spent for our yard to feel like an extension of our home. We would recommend Gary Haygood for any landscape architect needs.”

Happy residential clients of Gary Haygood.

“Highly recommend. My yard was a mess. Shady, sloped with drainage issues. Gary and his guys did an outstanding job. Built an awesome retaining wall and filled with plants and a huge planter. Fixed drainage problem and completely redid our yard. We love it and spend all our time on screened in porch enjoying our beautiful yard.”
