Popular Amenities in Atlanta
Here are some of the most commonly requested features for Atlanta backyards.
A backyard fire pit is a feature that can be used all year whether its s’mores in the summer or entertaining in the winter. We love a great built in fire pit on a stone patio or a portable fire pit on the lawn. Whether it’s a smokeless fire pit or propane fire pit table, we’ll help you find the perfect spot in your backyard.
Atlanta residents enjoy a long, hot summer perfect for a dip in the pool. A pool is the perfect option to beat the heat. Tilly designs everything from container pools, stock tank pools, inground pools, infinity edge pools. Our team creates the landscape to beautifully highlight whatever pool works best for you.
Backyard outdoor kitchens are popular to maximize family time and entertaining outside. From a basic grill area to a kitchen with all the bells and whistles, Tilly loves designing an outdoor kitchen into a small or large backyard - add an awning or pergola to maximize the comfort of the space and provide shade!
Deck or Patio
A deck or patio can make your outdoor space a natural extension of your home, encouraging you to use the backyard more than ever. Whether it’s a wood deck, brick or blue stone patio - Tilly will help you find the right deck vs patio option for your backyard landscape design and garden style.
Popular Plants in Atlanta
Your landscape designer will have a deep understanding of what plants work in Atlanta. Tilly encourages homeowner’s to focus on native plants that create a sustainable design. Some of our favorite Atlanta options include:
Wild Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)
This climbing vine with dramatic blooms works well in full sun to part shade. A great choice to include in a pollinator garden, Wild Passion Flower can be a breathtaking addition to fence lines and pergolas.
Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa)
As its name states, this is a must-have for pollinator gardens. This sun-loving perennial has deep green leaves that are highlighted by a pop of yellow-orange clusters of blooms that last into late summer.
Bleeding Heart (Dicentra spectabilis)
This shade loving perennial gets its name from the intricate shape of the deep red blooms. A great low maintenance option for a woodland garden, Bleeding Heart also makes a great addition to a cutting garden.
Scentless Mock Orange (Philadelphus inodorus)
A medium sized shade loving woodland shrub, this plant has a graceful form that is punctuated with delicate white blooms. This is a fairly low maintenance and adaptable addition for a flowering hedge or foundation planting.
Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum biflorum)
The graceful arching form and delicate white blooms make this native perennial a great addition to a woodland garden. Working well as both a specimen plant and grouped together en masse, the bright green foliage will last throughout the summer.
Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia)
This native woodland shrub is generally known to enjoy more damp conditions, but can actually be fairly drought tolerant once established. With large deep green leaves and dramatic creamy white blooms, Oakleaf Hydrangeas work well as a specimen within the landscape.

We see a variety of landscape design trends throughout the Atlanta area. From modern, cottage gardens to lush tropical designs, Atlantans have diverse landscape styles depending on the homes’ architectural style and owner’s preferences. One design element that never goes out of style is incorporating sustainable landscape design practices into a yard!
Native plants and maximizing a yard are always top of mind for Atlanta landscape designs. Tilly encourages using native plants, which help our ecosystem by being primed for the existing environment’s conditions and being a wildlife refuge for birds, bees, butterflies and other essential insects. Water wise plant selections are also key to a successful landscape design no matter where you are.
Tilly also recommends eco-friendly gardening practices. By this we mean using organic materials, no pesticides, not over mowing your lawn, etc.
We feel strongly that incorporating the above sustainable practices help a yard thrive and flourish and keep maintenance lower.
Tilly has landscape designers across the country. Homeowners are matched with a landscape designer who has residential Atlanta experience and is familiar with the climate of the area. Each assigned designer understands what plants and material will work in a specific geographical location. You will have an opportunity to share your goals and show your space during your one-on-one video call with your designer.
After you have finished your design, Tilly will send you an estimate for the plants in your landscape design plan. If you choose to move forward with Tilly for plant delivery we will then schedule a curbside delivery at a date and time of your choosing.
