Blake made this process very enjoyable from the design meeting to the install process. He is very knowledgeable and was able to design our area with a variety of colors and textures. He took our interests into account and we came home to a "waterfall" look that we love. We're excited for spring to see the full extent of colors. We're very happy with the design process, as other companies just wanted to take a cookie cutter approach and didn't take our vision into account.

Blake made this entire process so smooth! We had a vision for wanting our front flower bed to look full with lots of variety, and he executed his design plan flawlessly! He listened to every request we had, as well as offered suggestions to make the space even better! We could not be more pleased with how it turned out! I cannot recommend him enough!

We recently had Blake from Piney Mountain Design both design and install the landscaping for our empty acre yard. We wanted to use as many native plants as possible for ease of care, but still have some color. His choices of seating areas, berries, figs, maples, grasses and evergreens were even better than we expected. Blake is a very hard worker and we would recommend him to anyone! We are very happy with the result and are looking forward to many years in our beautiful yard. Thank you Piney Mountain Design!

Hi, I'm Blake - Welcome!

With 25+ years of experience in landscape design and horticulture, I'm thrilled to share my passion for fine gardens, native plants and wildlife with the creation of Piney Mountain Design.

Originally from Mobile, Alabama, I've been very fortunate to live and work in Southern Germany, as well as the Central Florida and Los Angeles markets, providing me with the opportunity to immerse myself in a broad range of garden styles from classic to ultra modern.

Here in the Upstate, we are blessed by an abundance of natural beauty that supports one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet!  In fact, it is our region’s unique beauty that led so many people like myself to relocate here.

Unfortunately our biodiversity is under tremendous stress from the unprecedented population growth the Upstate is experiencing.  Too often, shortsighted real estate developers clear cut the land, eradicating our native plants and displacing our native wildlife.  What was once a thriving ecosystem is usually then replaced with non-native plants that don’t support local biodiversity. 

Entomologists have proven that native plants are a necessary food source for native insects.  Native insects in turn feed native birds, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals and by extension all other wildlife further up the food chain, including us!   Without native plants the Upstate’s insect populations will collapse causing the decline and eventual extinction of all our native wildlife.  In short, without native plants the natural beauty of the Upstate will no longer exist. 

The good news is that we can reverse this awful  trend of destruction by creating new habitat for  our beloved wildlife by utilizing native plants in our yards!  Piney Mountain Design’s mission is to nurture nature by encouraging the planting of native plants in the landscape because native plants = native wildlife!

It is my hope that this message of urgency resonates with you and that you will consider Piney Mountain Design for your landscape design needs.  I love my work and it is my absolute pleasure to spread that love and passion to others by creating gardens that are not only beautiful, functional and valuable for my clients but also for all the wildlife that call these gardens home.  

Together we can do our part to leave the world better than when we found it.

Thank you,
Blake Sims
