Olive Branch Integrated Outdoor Design is a landscape design company with a focus on artistry, cohesiveness and quality outdoor living. Our company is unique because our vision encompasses all aspects of the design of an exterior space. Owner, Mike Brown, specializes in landscape horticulture with an emphasis in design. Each design is original and tailored for your particular outdoor environment. We take pride in designing projects of all levels, from new construction and large renovations to private gardens and small, unique spaces.
Here are a few examples of staircases that we have designed for some of our clients. I know the gardeners out there will be disappointed for the lack of plants, but it is still nice to show a good foundation for a garden. I love stairs in the landscape because they give a person a destination. They can lead someone to a patio, a sunken fire pit, a water feature or simply another area of the garden. They can also frame a landscape as in the top photo and cause a person to pause and take in the view. They also offer so many possibilities as far as container gardens, lighting display and even a place to set the pumpkins in October.
