Josh specializes in traditional and modern landscape design, storm water management, and native plantings. He has been designing and installing landscapes in the DC metro area for the last 6 years.
Josh grew up in rural Pennsylvania, surrounded by nature and farms, instilling in him a fascination with natural beauty and the satisfaction of working the land. This lead him to pursue an education in designing landscapes that work with the land to better the land. He has worked with conservation districts rehabilitating streams and floodplains, at nurseries developing horticultural expertise, and with planning departments and architectural firms tackling small and large scale design projects. His design philosophy is derived from the idea that each site offers its own unique strengths and challenges and Josh works to create functional, beautiful spaces that best serves the site and the client.
Josh received his Master’s in Landscape Architecture from Virginia Polytechnic and State University. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.A. in Environmental Urban Planning and Religious Studies.
Brookstein Services’ in-house design team works to ensure that your specific site’s needs are met and your expectations are exceeded. The design team will take into account every aspect of a specific site in order to create a beautiful, functional landscape. Whether it is a formal garden, a functional rain garden, or anything in between, we strive to produce lasting, creative spaces.
Working in tandem with the Hardscaping Division, we create livable outdoor spaces that will captivate the eye and add value to your home. Josh, our resident landscape architect, will meet with you at your home to do a complete analysis of your site and needs. From there, upon your request, he will produce a design that meets and exceeds your expectations. Design documents, including drawings and plants lists, vary in price dependent upon scope of work.

Retaining walls are an invaluable asset to any landscape design, improving both the function and appearance of residential and commercial properties. Structural benefits of retaining walls include; prevention of damage caused by soil falling or sliding away from structural foundations, erosion control, improved drainage and soil conditions, and added stability and support for many larger projects like pools, patios and driveways. In addition to structural benefits, retaining walls help to beautify properties by adding level areas for planting, terraced gardens, and built in seating. At Brookstein Services we pride ourselves on creating original retaining wall designs that gain all the benefits and advantages of structural designs while providing a decorative landscape addition that is sure to enhance the overall appearance of any property.

Paver Driveways are a wonderful way to increase the beauty and value of a property for decades to come. Paver driveways have a strength and durability that is unsurpassed by traditional methods, such as, asphalt, concrete, and gravel. Pavers will not crack and crumble from elemental factors like freezing, water, or wind. They are much stronger than concrete due to the interlocking fashion in which they are laid, each paver reinforcing and being reinforced by the paver next to it. At Brookstein Services, we create unique designs that are an aesthetically pleasing welcome addition to any property; our stunning driveways increase the beauty and value of any home.
