Landscape planning is not easy for those who do not do it everyday. Even hiring an outside service can be a daunting experience. Let us help you evaluate your needs and goals, and enable you to better understand the design process.

We enjoy designing landscapes that are beautiful and functional, employing the best qualities that exist on the site.
Pat was wonderfully sensitive to our needs as it was not in our budget to start from scratch.  She came up with a beautiful and well conceived plan that far exceeded our expectations and maximized the space and layout constraints.  Pat listened so carefully to our desires and concerns – her final plans demonstrated the meticulous care she brought to helping us find creative and affordable ways to create a comfortable, cozy and colorful backyard space.

I can’t say enough about Pat!  She checked in with us regularly and was keenly in tune with understanding our needs.  We wanted to add flowers, color, and variety to our outdoor space.  Pat went a step further by choosing plantings and shrubs that would provide color throughout the spring, summer and fall.  Pat also introduced us to new varieties of grasses and shrubbery that were previously unknown to us.  She is a wealth of information.  She educated us during the process and always was ready to answer our questions.  Pat had her heart in the project and we truly felt like she wanted to create a beautiful space for us to enjoy for many years.
