Cloverdale Designs is an architecture & landscape design firm specializing in residential landscapes, professional gardening and architectural services. Since 1993 we have designed and built over 100 gardens and home renovations in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. As architects and landscape designers we strive to gracefully integrate the house with the garden. As horticultural experts and professional gardeners we build every garden ourselves to ensure the highest quality materials and planting techniques. Our goal is to create personalized indoor & outdoor spaces based on our clients’ vision and the natural environment.

Our gardens have been featured on many local garden tours and in the New York Times, The Greenwich Times, & House Beautiful Magazine.
