Hi, I’m Seth Mason, a proud Charleston, SC native and owner of Lowcountry Vistas Native Landscape Design. I specialize in a native, low-maintenance landscape design philosophy that harmonizes residential & commercial properties with the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry.
From the time I was 9 years old, I took pride in caring for my mother’s yard on James Island. The son of an artist with a strong connection to the natural beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry, making my mom’s yard look good became of a passion of mine at a young age.
Learning the basics of landscape design by maintaining the yard through my tweens, I created around my 14th birthday a long-term landscape design plan for it. I worked on the installation of that plan throughout the rest of my youth, adding plants and materials as my mother’s budget allowed.
Years later, after earning my M.B.A. during the 2008 Financial Crisis, I took part-time landscaping work around the Charleston area to get by. In time, I came to realize that I have a unique native, low-maintenance landscape design philosophy that resonates with Lowcountry natives and newcomers alike.
Thus, after earning my professional landscaping chops working alongside a fellow devotee to native Charleston horticulture for several years, I went on my own and started Lowcountry Vistas Native Landscape Design in 2015.
In effect, I was destined to use my native, low-maintenance landscape design philosophy to harmonize residential & commercial properties in the Charleston area with the awe-inspiring beauty of the Lowcountry: Running “Vistas” combines my deep admiration for Lowcountry natural beauty, my native horticulture expertise, my artistry, and my business acumen.
The projects I’ve showcased on the Native, Low-Maintenance Landscape Design Projects page demonstrate the valuable attributes I bring to every landscape design plan and every installation of a design plan:
– As an artist, I bring an eye for landscape design that can’t be learned.
– As a Charleston native who’s been tilling the Lowcountry soil for decades, I bring an exceptional knowledge of native horticulture.
– As an M.B.A., I bring the uncommon ability to make the most of customers’ budgets.
– As a seasoned owner of a local landscape design business, I bring extensive experience in landscape installation project management and expertise in gaining project approval from the Lowcountry’s most demanding HOAs and government entities.
This unique, valuable combination of attributes allows me to create landscape designs that are as creative and aesthetically-pleasing as they are practical and low-maintenance.
