Our Story & Team

our story

It all began when brothers Jim and John McCaughey started a landscaping business in 1983 out of their parents garage. This partnership, spanning over four decades, laid the groundwork for what Terren Landscapes is today.

Our Mission is Simple

Harmonizing Elegance & Sustainability

Our mission at Terren Landscapes is to harmoniously blend high-end landscape architecture with environmental sustainability. From the Main Line suburbs of Philadelphia, we create elegant outdoor spaces, specializing in native & pollinator plant garden designs and historical property hardscaping. We commit to practical stormwater management solutions and respect for local ecosystems, delivering timeless, unique, and functional outdoor experiences that exceed client visions.

"We worked with John, CJ, and the rest of the Terren team to transform our property. Their high-end landscape architecture services, matched with an understanding of our style and preferences, resulted in an elegant and inviting outdoor space."
