We Include You

Multiple meetings on site that include one-on-ones with the client and group meetings with the UVD team. Other meetings may be included that work community members, children and animals into the site design process if applicable.

Material List

We offer a material list along with resources to find them, often including repurposed options for greater sustainability and affordability. 

Hand Drawn Design

Final hand drawn design, with additional drawings from staff to provide insight, ideas and inspiration around the design process.

Clear Instructions

Step-by-step process to implement the landscape design. Clients will receive enough information to try their hand at DIY if that is their goal, and will also receive information on how UVD can support installation processes- as little or as much as the client wants

Plant Recommendations

Plant list with unique information regarding the species and location recommendations with our community partners for plant purchases.


Specific information related to the client’s property regarding a wide range of topics such as permaculture and ecological design, food production, pollinators, medicinal plants, livestock, water catchment, beneficial insects, child approved nature play, and more!

The UVD landscaping design is different from your typical landscaping design.

Clients choose our designs as we offer a final product that prioritizes opportunities to increase the client’s understanding of ecological landscaping, while providing clear avenues for installation and care.


"Drake Carnahan and crew are an inspiration to work with! She has a great sense of design and knows when to check in with the client to make sure she's on the right track. It's great to work with someone who understands sustainable landscaping and maintenance for urban and rural settings."

-Denissia Withers, Common Sense Gardens

"With only a few pictures and a short conversation, she was able to incorporate all of our asks into her final recommendation! We were very pleased to learn that the plants to she had chosen were native to the region and also drought resistant. The yard is in progress and Drake has even offered to consult us as things move forward! Thank you Urban Village Designs!"

-Rachel James
