Harold Leidner Landscape Architects has custom-designed and built amazing pools, gardens, landscapes, and outdoor living spaces for some of the most luxurious properties in Highland Park, University Park, Preston Hollow, Dallas, Fort Worth, Westover Hills, and Westlake for more than three decades.
30 years ago, the Dallas landscape architects at Harold Leidner Landscape Architects began with the idea that the exteriors they designed were best built by the designers of those exteriors — and for good reason. Architects are university-trained and state-licensed to understand the aesthetics of design and the details of construction. The same goes for Landscape Architects.
We do not sell our architectural plans for other contractors to install. And, we do not take a fee to manage those contractors that we did not hire. We build, manage, account, and guarantee every aspect of the projects that we design. And for a good reason. For example, it's common to see construction issues or questions arise that only the architect can answer. We know there are times these contractors will make those decisions without consulting the architect. Our experience has shown that those decisions can cause long-lasting problems.
Our landscape architects and builders have designed and built residential exteriors that are better integrated because of that knowledge and experience. The materials used are more sustainable. Energy is used more efficiently. Environmental decisions are sensible and the physical beauty of those exteriors is undeniable — and all from a single source.
We are still run by landscape architects in the same way. Technology enhances the process, but the ideas still start with a pencil and a roll of tracing paper.
When it’s all said and done, an exterior by Harold Leidner Landscape Architects is iconic.
I was born in Dallas, Texas, and graduated from Hillcrest High School. After years of running my own small landscape business, I pursued my passion for Landscape Architecture from Texas A&M University. Additionally, I worked at Neiman Marcus, where I learned everlasting lessons about customer service.
Once I had my degree from Texas A&M University and state licensure in Landscape Architecture, I focused on residential design and construction.
I’ve owned my Landscape Architectural business for over 30 years. For 30 years, we have stayed small and focused on high-end residential design and construction. As I tell all of my clients, when I first meet them, "if you like me, you’re going to see a lot of me. If you don’t, we’re probably a bad fit." Our clients like a simple point of contact and value working with a Landscape Architect. I guide them from beginning to end through the design, construction, and ultimately, the care of their property. My guarantee to all my clients is we take Total Accountability.
