Create, Design & Install
Passion - Quality - Professionalism
Rohsler’s skilled landscape designers are driven by a passion for plants. Whether they start a project with a blank slate or strive to revive an aging landscape, these talented professionals work closely with their residential and commercial clients to create upscale, cutting-edge designs.
Lead Landscape Designer Tom Wiss views his clients’ properties through a unique lens. His vision is informed by his Penn State education in art and architecture, and the knowledge he inherited from several generations of Wiss family landscaping professionals. Tom’s family includes three experts who have published multiple books on garden design and garden architecture. One of those volumes describes the public’s desire for foundation plantings during the last century.
“In the early 1900s, houses were built on stone columns, and the works of the house, including the furnace, were visible. Foundation plantings hid that,” Wiss explains. “Most modern houses are pretty right down to the ground, so I design to accentuate the house, soften the lines of the building, and make the house look bigger.”
Splashes of color that emerge from a green backdrop, artfully blended foliage and bark textures, and varied plant sizes and shapes keep the eye moving across a landscape. Rohsler’s design pros strive to create visual interest, while always keeping practicality in mind.
During the growing season, Tom advocates a daily stroll through the garden for some very light maintenance. To make the tour enjoyable, Tom brings a favorite beverage and a pair of pruners into his own landscape. He stops pruning when he is finished sipping his beverage.
Garden concepts vary, and Rohsler’s experts have a wide range of experience. Eric specializes in natural landscapes, while Kari styles English gardens, and Suzanne creates artistic plantings that feature annuals. If you have a vision for your garden, Rohsler’s will help you bring it to fruition. Those who are seeking a bit of guidance are invited to schedule a consultation.
In addition to providing high-quality landscaping services, Rohsler’s professionals also design and install outdoor kitchens, patios, play areas, walks, walls, and ponds. These amenities will make your outdoor space a “destination” this summer!
Well-executed landscape designs add instant curb appeal, enhance property values, and convey the impression a home is well maintained. The timing is always right for a great design. Those who plan to stay in their homes will benefit from the beauty of a professionally designed landscape, and may save on water and energy costs depending on which plantings are installed. When it’s time to sell, homeowners who have invested in a professional landscape design tend to realize increased resale values, and find their houses spend less time on the market.
Clients who work with the nursery’s designers are treated to a tour of Rohsler’s.
