Cathy Carr, FAPLD, founder and principal designer of GreenHeart, LLC, collaborates with homeowners, architects and builders to create memorable gardens that enrich people’s lives. Essentially, we are space makers, so most of our designs include both hardscape (for entertaining and circulation) and lush plantings. We use sustainable practices and as many native plants as possible, with the overall goal of creating outrageously beautiful spaces.

GreenHeart’s specialty is creating outdoor spaces that look terrific seasonally, work well spatially, and feel great to be in. Contact us for a brief consult or a major renovation.
