“Catherine is a good listener, and clearly passionate about her work. Her landscape plan for our front yard was not only beautiful, but practical as well. We especially liked the fact that she is environmentally conscious, and that she tries as much as possible to use native plants in her design.”

Lygia, New Rochelle, NY

“Catherine, it is a pleasure working with you, your ideas for gardening are so integrated and holistic, everything works together.”

Rosemary, Bedford NY

"Every time I look out my kitchen window at my new cottage garden, I feel so happy. Thank you!"

Kathryn, Larchmont NY

“Wow, Catherine! Getting such immediate results, with so much beauty appearing all at once! We are all suitably impressed and excited, and just wanted to take another chance to say thank you. This project so far exceeds our expectations we can hardly believe it.”

The Garden Club of Larchmont

“Catherine’s garden design for my home is not only artistically conceived, but importantly, she knows exactly which plants and flowers will thrive in both the sunny and shady parts of the property. As the seasons come and go, the effect becomes more and more beautiful!”

Pruning specialist 3x/season: fall, spring, summer Keep evergreens and deciduous shrubs in shape with proper pruning techniques. No indiscriminate shearing or shrub “balls” (unless you want that!)
Spring cleanup Early spring Cut previous season’s plants down, edge garden beds, clean debris, fluff or replace mulch.
Soil Improvement 1x year, spring or fall Great gardens start with great soil. Leaf blowers destroy soil organisms, leaving only minerals. Replenish soil with compost or topsoil and organic fertilizer to improve lawn & shrubs
