Low maintenance landscapes designed for sanctuary and comfort
A garden should provide sanctuary and comfort from the stress of our busy lives and the hustle-bustle of today’s world. A landscape plan created by an award winning, experienced & certified landscape designer will assist you in achieving the outdoor environment you desire for your home.
Intentional about choosing the right plant for the right place, Donna considers ease of maintenance, rate of growth, edibility, drought tolerance and disease resistance in her planting plans. She combines native and introduced non-invasive plants into creative planting arrangements that attract birds, butterflies and beneficial pollinating insects. Metal, wood and stone are employed through fences, hardscaping, arbors, pergolas, retaining walls and courtyards to bring texture, interest and dimension to her landscape designs.
Donna’s design philosophy is rooted in a belief that outdoor spaces should be enjoyed. Her process relies on listening carefully to your needs to create an outdoor environment that is uniquely yours, influenced by the architecture of your home and your family’s lifestyle. Her priorities include creating a low maintenance environment you’ll enjoy year-round and preserving our diminishing native plant and wildlife habitat.
Whether a focused conversation related to a specific planting bed, a full survey of the entire yard to talk through opportunities, or the initial meeting prior to beginning work on a full landscape plan, Donna offers consultation services to fit a range of needs and budgets.
Donna begins the landscape design process with an assessment of your site, your needs, and your preferences. A full landscape process with Donna includes delivery of a full landscape plan, a planting plan, and referrals to her network of trusted contractors.
Donna provides hand-on installation consultation including plant placement to ensure that the finished product fulfills the design intent.
What clients have to say…
We are grateful for Donna’s extremely well-thought out, deliberate selections for our landscaping. When she said her intention was to have something “interesting/flowering” year round, I don’t think we could have imagined our delight every time we look out our windows or pull in and out of the driveway.― Susan
Donna developed a wonderful planting plan. She incorporated many native plants that were low maintenance. She helped us determine what plants would do well with the type of soil we had. We had a very positive experience working with Donna and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a landscape designer.― Lynette
