Dancing Grass Designs LLC

Dancing Grass Designs LLC creates gardens using the classic principles of design and tenets of sustainable practices.  Our Master’s degree in landscape design from George Washington University, green certifications from national and local organizations, and project management experience sets us apart from other landscape businesses.  In fact, what is truly unique about Dancing Grass Designs is our successful management of a LEED for Homes project which received Gold certification in 2012.  For this project, we renovated a 30-year old beach cottage and designed the new sustainable garden.  The project was completed in 6 months with LEED certification following 5 months later.
