I’d like to help you

design your garden….


Beauty and


I specialize in working closely with clients on their garden design and landscaping projects.  Given your site and your goals, I present fresh and practical ideas  for you to consider.

Through collaborative discussion we will arrive at an exciting  design that meets your needs in terms of aesthetic, long-term vision, and ease of implementation.  Projects range from landscape design for new home construction to redesigning an old mixed border. Working closely with hand-picked contractors, I’ll see the project –including hardscaping and planting – through to completion.

"Laura is a pleasure to work with. She blends her ideas with ours to create a beautiful outdoor living space. She is creative, easy to work with and responsive to our ideas. We would totally recommend Laura for any outdoor design, big or small." -- Rushton & Charles Callaghan

"Working with Laura was a wonderful experience! I was a bit overwhelmed by the scope of our project but also had a vision. Laura listened intently to my ideas and brought her professional expertise, a sense of humor and true grit to our project. Laura worked collaboratively with me at every step to get my vision executed." -- L. K.


"When we first hired Laura, we knew the assignment was a tough one: Our outdoor space was an impassable knot of buckthorn and bramble. Laura was able to see beyond the mayhem, and she immediately set to work designing a garden filled with color and beauty at every turn. Her vision is a constant source of amazement and delight." -- Katie Hafner


"Laura has two very special skills: she's a great listener and a great designer.  From the moment we started working together on my perennial beds she wanted to understand my vision.  I loved how she walked around our place, absorbing the views and sight lines while asking me what's important and how we wanted to experience the space.  I shared my favorite plants with her and she came back with a spectacular design that incorporated those ideas plus her own inspired ideas for new perennial varieties as well as annuals that would fill in while the perennials were getting established.  The result was beyond my wildest dreams!  The beds have performed so well over the last two years.  Laura is an absolute pleasure to work with, always ready to provide her design and horticultural wisdom while understanding our ideas and goals."  -- Nina McIntyre
