LUSH GreenScape Design is an award-winning landscape design-build studio based in New Braunfels, Texas.

Our focus is on sustainable methods which result in responsible landscapes with both function and beauty. We offer a turnkey approach to landscaping which takes the project from conception through construction with no disconnect between the design and the installation.

Our intuitive design, unwavering attention to detail, and creative and artistic spirit during the process bring unparalleled quality to the finished landscape.

We create innovative outdoor spaces that are functionally sound, environmentally responsible, and exquisitely LUSH.

The LUSH Process

Initial Consultation We meet with you to determine the scope of the work along with your functional needs and discuss your aesthetic preferences and overall vision.

Creative Design We perform a site analysis of your home or business, and take into consideration the architecture, soil conditions, drainage considerations, and privacy issues.

Concept Approval We encourage a collaborative approach with our clients, and collectively determine a conceptual plan.

Design Drawing and Schematic We develop a design that includes hand-drawn perspectives along with a diagram of hardscape materials and plant palette. A schematic plan can also be provided to reflect lighting and irrigation if need be.

Final Construction Approval We provide an itemized proposal for the installation. To ensure we do not develop a design that is unattainable for implementation, budgeting will be discussed at the initial consultation.

Construction and Installation We implement the build-out of your project while managing every aspect of construction to ensure the integrity of the design throughout the installation.

Finished Dream Project We endeavor to make your dream project a reality. If you can DREAM it, we can DESIGN and BUILD it.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Ryan was communicative throughout the entire process, was incredibly thoughtful, cared about our ideas, and really worked to make the design beautiful, yet functional. He’s a gem to work with and a true artist. I couldn’t love this company more!”

Katie Ehlers, Austin, TX

“Ryan has a design vision that is unparalleled! His talent and work are amazing. We get compliments on our installation often – it’s modern, sustainable, and eco-friendly!”

Brooke Simmons Winslett, New Braunfels, TX

“Ryan McWhirter (the owner of LUSH) has a great eye for unique landscape design that turns landscape into art. My wife and I purchased our dream home and LUSH has enhanced that dream even more. LUSH is a professional operation with great people that produces a very unique and high-quality product. We can’t gush enough about LUSH.”

Steve Finley, San Marcos, TX

“Amazing design. Awesome vision. Beautiful installation. Hands down, true artists with what they do.”

Patrick Winn, Total Art Design & Architecture, New Braunfels, TX

“Our backyard was transformed from ordinary to extraordinary and we could not be more pleased. Ryan is ultra-talented, has a keen sense of design, and is an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend LUSH.”

Shelly Jacobson, Corpus Christi, TX

“Ryan created a crisp, appropriate landscape design for our art auction, advisory, and appraisal company. The LUSH team was diligent, detailed, efficient, and delivered a finished result on-time. The landscape installation accentuates the lines and details of the building as well as our sunken rear garden, and quietly leads our clients to the important works of art consigned and displayed inside. The landscaping is serene and an oasis for us and our visitors.”

Lark Mason, iGavel Auctions, Inc.,
New Braunfels, TX

“LUSH is a truly top-notch operation. Ryan is a highly creative designer who takes great pride in the product he delivers. He is dedicated to customer satisfaction and was consistently involved throughout the project. We have rehired LUSH for a new project and can’t wait to see his next creation!”

Chris Patronella, Canyon Lake, TX

“We are beyond thrilled! It was an absolute pleasure working with Ryan; his ideas and vision exceeded expectations. We would highly recommend LUSH to anyone interested in a stress-free process that rewards you with a yard that is the envy of the neighborhood.”

Martin & Amy Reynolds, New Braunfels, TX

“LUSH was great to work with and the finished product is just that…finished and sleek. No detail overlooked.”

Karel Kozuh, Austin, TX

“We hired LUSH to redo the front yard of our contemporary art gallery. It was exactly what we were looking for – a low maintenance xeriscape that didn’t use standard native plants. LUSH incorporated re-purposed steel elements along with desert plants that are suited to our climate. It was a balanced asymmetrical design with a modern feel that was a great juxtaposition with the 100+ year old house standing behind it. We liked it so much that we decided to extend the concept to our primary residence.”

Jean Longone, New Braunfels, TX

“We couldn’t be happier with the way our yard turned out. Ryan and his crew went above and beyond our expectations, and we were impressed with the thought that went into every detail. The plants Ryan picked for us were incredible, and the landscaping revitalized our house. Thanks, LUSH!”

Kelly Koegle Wagner, New Braunfels, TX

“Ryan is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and manages a crew of workers that are friendly, efficient, and professional. Ryan returned our yard to a beautiful finish, taking care to select plants that are drought resistant and beautiful. He also designed a bocce ball court that is a wonderful addition. We would recommend LUSH without reservation.”

Jene Laman, San Marcos, TX

“We started with an out of control and overgrown garden. We ended up with more than we could have expected; a simple, sleek and clean garden that’s now the focal point of our office. Thank you very much, Ryan (and the whole team behind LUSH GreenScape Design) for your attention to detail and prompt delivery of our project.”

Smile Advanced Dental Care,
New Braunfels, TX

“Prompt, transparent and caring. Working with Ryan and his team has been a pleasure. We have lived in New Braunfels and admired the work LUSH has done in our community for over 3 years. Now that we could afford Phase I of our dream project, we were so excited to see that this company was so easy to work with and willing to take us on. Highly recommended!”

Michael Mathis, New Braunfels, TX

“Hired LUSH for a residential project. Ryan saw the vision and executed it perfectly. Very reliable, prompt, and the work is amazing. Looking forward to an ongoing relationship with LUSH for future projects.”

Justin Brooks, New Braunfels, TX
