My husband and I were looking for a landscape designer to revive our 1930’s English Tudor garden that was in disrepair due to the drought. Catherine was the answer! She had the aesthetic sense and vision to honor the original bones of the garden, while incorporating hardscape and new plantings to accommodate the need for lower water usage. She created 3 charming functional spaces or garden rooms. The focal area of the garden is a large custom brick courtyard for dining and entertaining purposes. The courtyard has a fountain, large wooden planter, beautiful planted pots and 2 custom hand crafted arbors facing each other with market lights strung between them. The second area is a conversational seating area adjacent to our new low water lawn, which is used for playing corn hole, croquet and other outdoor garden games. Additional, she created a circular cozy fire pit area surrounded by plantings. She separated the 3 areas with custom arbors, custom planters, low water plantings and flagstone paths that lead you into the spaces.

She thought of every detail from matching the architectural details of the house, picking the market lights, adding outdoor electric outlets, to creating beautiful planted pots and choosing plants that use less water but fit the English style of our home. It is truly a magical garden.

Catherine is extremely talented, knowledgeable, organized, reliable, fairly priced and an absolute pleasure to work with. We interviewed many landscape designers and she was the only one that understood the importance of incorporating the architecture of our house and garden as well as the concept of creating outdoor rooms. She was busy at the time, but we waited for her to start the drawings. It was well worth the wait.
