Amber Freda is not the typical landscaping contractor. For more than a decade, New York City residents have turned to Amber for custom landscape designs. She has a passion for providing high-end, detail-oriented services and giving clients the feeling of being in their own oasis.

Unrivaled Landscaping Knowledge
Too many NYC residents make the mistake of hiring just anyone for their landscaping project. It’s important to know that ongoing maintenance (mowing, watering, etc.) and landscape design are completely different. Rather than sift through countless maintenance teams, we recommend connecting with Amber, who continues to be regarded as one of the most knowledgeable professionals in this ever-growing industry.
Let’s go back to 2004 when Amber started her own business. She wanted to offer clients a design that felt like a natural and seamless extension of their homes. Never did she think to cut corners or rip people off with “cookie-cutter” or “one-size-fits-all” approaches.
Part of what makes Amber different is that she personally oversees the design of every project from start to finish. There’s no need to worry about speaking with her during the initial consultation and then disappearing. When you invest in Amber and her team, know that they will earn your business and truly go above and beyond.
It’s impossible to discuss garden design in NYC without at least mentioning Amber. For one thing, she is a regular instructor at both the New York and Brooklyn botanical gardens. Then there’s her impressive client list, which includes the likes of George Soros, Brett Icahn, Joseph Edelman, and Bobbi Brown.
Not only has Amber appeared as a guest expert on the CBS New York Morning Show, but she has been featured in major publications such as The New York Times, Better Homes & Gardens, Garden Design, HGTV, and New York Magazine. It’s safe to say you won’t find a more knowledgeable landscaper in the region.
Our Landscape Design Process
We value transparency and communication in every project, regardless of its scope. As aforementioned, Amber will walk you through each step of the process, answering any questions you may have. If any sort of issue comes up, you can expect her to fix it before continuing on with the rest of the project.
There are three key components to Amber’s design and installation services. Let’s take a closer look at them:
- On-site consultation – This is our opportunity to evaluate your style, vision, and site conditions. We will also make recommendations to fit your particular space. Ultimately, the on-site consultation is about understanding what’s most important to you with your landscaping and brainstorming how we can turn those ideas into a reality.
- Design – An alarming number of contractors spend minimal time on the design phase. That’s not how we do business, though. We offer comprehensive plan drawings that are completely ready to be submitted for approval. As you’ll see for yourself, this is the best way to see how everything looks together. Don’t forget to ask about custom features such as decks, patios, turf, pergolas, and outdoor kitchens.
- Installation – At this point, many landscape designers might outsource the installation to a random third-party contractor. At Amber Freda Landscape Design, we install all of the plants and planters ourselves while our general contractor builds out custom features according to our specifications. This level of attention to detail allows us to create a space that feels seamless and well-designed.
Whether you’re interested in adding lighting for entertainment or ambiance purposes, Amber can point you in the right direction. We are comfortable with various lighting solutions, including low-voltage up-lighting in plants, floodlights, task lighting for outdoor kitchens, fence lighting, and more. There’s no question that the right lighting makes a huge difference within an urban oasis, so see what Amber recommends for your space.
Maybe you’re wanting a garden but aren’t sure you have the time to water it on a regular basis. Not to worry, as our experienced team installs drip irrigation systems that help maximize your plants’ health and longevity in both the short-term and long-term. If you’re looking for an easy and inexpensive way to protect your garden, then be sure to ask us about drip irrigation systems.
There are times when you just can’t get around to maintaining your garden. Fortunately, Amber Freda Landscape Design can help with this as well. From pruning and leaf cleanup to weeding and pest control, we have you covered.
