About Architectural Gardens


Our mission

In 1994 Mark Schieber and Charles Weaver started Architectural Gardens out of a desire to provide Ohio homeowners with a more satisfying way to create outdoor living spaces. Our goal was to find a way for you to have a place of your own that incorporates your dreams while drawing on the creative expertise of experienced, professional landscape architects.

With over 60 years of combined experience, Architectural Gardens deliver creative, quality products that ranges from unique, integrated gardens, to 3-story, luxury decks.  And we do it all while ensuring a smooth installation process with minimal interruptions to your life.

Landscape Design that Lasts

Sometimes it seems like you turn your back on your garden for only a moment, and the next thing you know, your personal Eden looks more like a jungle. Architectural Gardens works with you to create surroundings that look beautiful from the time we’re done and for many years to come. And if anything seems to be getting out of hand, we’ll be right there to get everything back to perfect.

Quotes You Can Understand

It’s hard to trust a quote that only shows you a total, but many landscape construction companies give you just that. At Architectural Gardens, our quotes are fully itemized, so you know exactly what you are paying for.

Timelines We Stick To

Although working outside is always dependent on the weather, we do everything in our power to fulfill the timelines that we promise.

Green Technology

While the landscape industry has always been a green industry, Architectural Gardens is constantly researching and establishing new methods to maximize the green. They are incorporating various native plants into projects wherever possible, in addition to minimizing stormwater runoff using bioswales and raingardens, recycling old landscape materials and using special soils and plants which reduce the need for water, fertilizers and pesticides.
