A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are a few of the gardens we have collaborated on and developed with our clients. They include improved drainage, stone details, hardy plantings and simple maintenance. Prices ranged on these from $2000.00 to $5000.00.
Parterre on Monument Avenue
Careful planning was the important aspect of making this garden pop. The owners and I poured hours of thought into the perfection of this small space.

This happy homeowner was gleefully contributing his labor of his new garden. He stood up with muddy hands and smilingly said, “After 7 year of this …

Nonetheless, I was blown away by the artistry of the end product.
