The professional landscape architectural design scope of services Bell-la offers includes conceptual site masterplanning, tree disposition plans and reports for tree removal or relocation, hardscape layout design and construction detailing of the built elements of a site, site grading design, irrigation design, and landscape lighting design.

As a result, Bell-la puts a significant amount of thought and detail into the individualized design of driveways, fences, gates, fountains, swimming pools, docks, terraces, pergolas, gazebos, courtyards, and other various site furnishings. To further reinforce the custom detailing of every project, Deena Bell Llewellyn has created her own custom line of outdoor furnishings “Bell-la Furnishings” where she designs and manufactures her own line of planters, benches, fountains, sculptures, tables and other site furnishings specifically conceived for each project so that the individual soul and theme is carried through to the final minute detail like a fingerprint.
