About The Landscape Design Center

Our Story

Since 1974, The Landscape Design Center has been cultivating client relationships throughout Anne Arundel, Howard, Prince George’s, Baltimore, and Montgomery Counties. They are one of the premier Landscape Design-Build Firms in Central Maryland. However, this woman-owned and family-operated company is not just your typical landscaping business.

It all started when Andrea Lockett was mowing lawns to pay for her education at the University of Maryland. Early on she realized that she had a passion for the outdoors, specifically learning about plants. She wanted to combine her interest of botany and her love of art design. So, combining her passions, with her strong work ethic and great business sense, blossomed The Landscape Design Center.

Andrea has spent over 40 years developing a business model that focuses on service and craftsmanship, setting The Landscape Design Center apart from its competitors.

What was once a 2 truck and 3-man operation, the company grew to a 10 truck, 5 crew and 2 property operation! Andrea’s knowledge of plant material is extensive. Her insight has created thousands of aesthetically pleasing designs, giving clients their very own personal oasis.

How can a landscape company be innovative?

  • Staying up to date on new trends and technologies for outdoor spaces.
  • Designing your outdoor space based on learning about you and your vision
  • Our work is installed by our crews
  • Recycling everything, we can (i.e. concrete, natural brush, plastic, metal, etc.)
  • Your designer is involved in your project from start to finish

The Landscape Design Center will work with you on your property planning, landscaping, hardscapes, and landscape enhancements. You will find that throughout the process, we will guide you through conversation, concept and completion.

Our Team Is The Difference

Our crews are some of the hardest working, detail-oriented people you will ever meet. At The Landscape Design Center we cultivate a hardworking family mentality. You work hard, contribute to the team (family), you move forward, and we all move forward. This results in little turnover. Since everyone has worked together for so long, there is less re-training, and less room for errors. Jobs end up running smoother and more efficiently. It is a win-win for everyone.

Andrea – Founder and Senior Designer – Andrea has a background in horticulture and over 40 years of field experience with landscaping, hardscaping, drainage, irrigation, and waterfront properties. Her organization skills help her clients keep their jobs on schedule and within budget!

Tom – Manager and Heavy Machinery Operator – In 1980, Tom Lockett brought knowledge of drainage, hardscapes, and machinery to the company. He continues using his trained eye to navigate complicated drainage jobs, overseeing job installations, and running larger equipment.

Ana – Chief Landscape Designer – Ana obtained her BA in Landscape Design and Management from The University of Maryland. In 2003, she became a fulltime employee at The Landscape Design Center. She enjoys getting to know clients and giving them innovative ideas. Her warm personality and passion give clients the comfort of knowing she will provide them up to date and personal ideas.

Isis – Chief accountant – Isis joined the company in 2015 and is a detailed oriented person. She organizes and runs the company’s payroll, provides our clients with concise, but detailed invoices, and itemizes administrative duties.

Process, Combined with Passion and Expertise, Makes Perfect

Calling Landscape Design companies can be daunting. You can receive a lot of voicemails OR false promises of a return call. At The Landscape Design Center, that is not the case. During regular business hours, you will hear a friendly voice 99% of the time. During the busy seasons, we may not be able to schedule you the day you call, but within 48 hours, we will get back to you to discuss your project further. You are also welcome to email us at office@thelandscapedesigncenter.com to set up a phone meeting to discuss your project prior to the consultation.
