Wherever it grows, the Sycamore tree adapts to create balanced, peaceful environments. You’ll find its sturdy branches meandering out over riverbanks, or its robust canopy dappling neighborhood parks and downtown streets with shade from summer sun. In colder months, its distinctive natural-white hues anchor the landscape with elegant, winsome lines. When the snow begins to fall on Colonial Christmas villages, flakes rest on string lights draped from the Sycamore’s low arms, illuminating its quaint, mottled bark.

Our Vision

Inspired by our namesake tree, SycamoreLDB adapts to our clients’ lives and spaces. Satisfied by hard work and great teamwork, Justin’s summer job following his father’s trade has matured into an all-encompassing landscape design and build service, and continues to grow in capacity and offerings.

Our clients invest not only in exceptional landscapes, but quality operations. First, we use a four-step design process to map each client’s unique vision onto a step-by-step path. Well-designed spaces not only optimize resources but get better with age. Each generation creates lasting, cherished memories in the shade of the young trees planted in your outdoor living space.

Once construction is underway, we walk the path together. Friendly collaborators, our team members maintain thoughtful communication with homeowners, subcontractors and coworkers to ensure clear and trouble-free client experiences (especially when we work through unforeseen obstacles together). From young families to empty nesters, we cater our project management to each homeowner’s needs making the process as memorable and distinctive as their soon-to-be finished patio, blossoming garden or glowing fire.



“There is a reason why people visit gardens and parks—it brings joy, it creates memories. It provides value to families' lives which is often immeasurable.”
—Justin Braley (Owner and Principal)

Justin Braley
Owner / Principal


With a blossoming portfolio career in the landscape industry, Justin is never far from his early memories of the aroma of fresh spring air and the pleasure of a hard-day’s work. What began as general labor became a labor of love as he grew through foreman, design, sales and management roles at established landscaping firms. Building on decades spent cultivating backyards and outdoors spaces around his Bucks County home, Justin’s familiarity with regional horticultural practices and quality local resources is extensive and continually grows. A certified arborist, his technical, botanical knowledge buttresses this practical, working expertise. He draws on his experience through service industries, including time in leadership at a rapidly expanding regional tree-service, to prioritize healthy workforce culture and development.

Thanks to a long-standing, collaborative approach to the craft, Justin’s well-leveraged network is an exceedingly invaluable resource to both partners and clients. Now, he takes pride in the many lessons learned while developing SycamoreLDB into a leading local landscape design-build firm and this eager adaptability continues to ensure the success of each project. A fond admirer of all outdoor life and experience—from woodland streams and lavender meadows to brick townhome gardens and Bucks’ classic stone farmhouse facade—Justin is an ideal design partner for estate projects of all tastes and sizes throughout our region.
