Our simple desire at HBC is to leave marks of excellence in our communities by creating living and work spaces that endure as special places in time. Impacting spaces to this degree requires thoughtful and systematic use planning plus the professional determination to tackle every challenge we face.


Mr. & Mrs. Burkert bring several strengths to botanical garden tasks. They are sensitive to cultural and aesthetic conditions, in that their designs feature the types of plants that suit specific situations. In other words, they have an accurate sense of not only what the property owner wants and needs, but also how the designs and plant selections best suit the lifestyles and culture of the owners. The Burkerts listen intently to what peoperty owners communicate about their landscapes, realizing the importance of a complete life setting in which people are more apt to experience gardens in many different ways. As result, Burkert gardens thrive rather than merely survive.

  Drawing by hand stimulates the imagination and allows us to speculate about ideas, a good sign that we’re truly alive ~ Micheal Graves   At HBC we still produce hand drawn conceptual designs and renderings for our clients to use for marketing, presentations, framing, and meetings.
