Jocelyn did a great job in designing four planting areas around our yard. She picked out trees, shrubs, grasses and flowers that suited our tastes and low-maintenance lifestyle and laid out the design on a professional landscape plan at a very reasonable cost. She also recommended a wonderful landscape company that implemented the plan this Spring. We couldn't be happier with the work she did for us.
I was lucky to have a friend who recommended Jocelyn as I needed a landscape design for my front yard. My specs were to eliminate as much lawn as possible; incorporate two specific trees; landscape the rest with low maintenance, non- thirsty plants; and make it colorful in spring, summer and fall and interesting in the winter. Jocelyn delivered a detailed plan that was exactly what I wanted. It included the names of contractors which was very helpful. I would highly recommend Jocelyn and will definitely be contacting her next year to work on a design for the back yard.

I have had the privilege of working with Jocelyn for years and she is very familiar with our property and landscaping. This past month I called her for a "walk and talk". She and I strolled through the property and she provided suggestions and comments as well as answered all sorts of random questions I had. Her deep knowledge of local landscaping issues and vegetation was invaluable! Can't wait for spring now!
I have had the pleasure of hiring Jocelyn twice. When I was unsure of how to design my backyard in my new home way back in 1997, an employee of Echter's Greenhouse recommended her as a landscape designer. She was so great to work with, taking all of our likes and dislikes into consideration. She provided a garden design that incorporated many of our favorite plants and a few plants we had not heard of. Still, the design couldn't have been more perfect. After almost 18 years in our house, our yard was a showplace but the house no longer met our needs. After we moved into a new house, we again had to start from scratch. I was so thrilled that Jocelyn was still working in the area and were able to rehire her to design our new backyard landscape. Again, the design she came up with was perfect! We've been in our house for 6 months and are looking forward to making her design come to life in the spring. Thank you, Jocelyn!
We needed someone to come in, review our front and backyard lots and draw up a plan we could work from over the next couple years. Jocelyn stopped by, did a one-hour consult, told us what she could do, and we signed up on the spot. She delivered detailed plans, with a full list of plants, and planting instructions. Plus she offered us names of contractors who could help us. All of it was professional, efficient, and on time. Recommend her highly.
I recently purchased a condo with a side yard. Half of it is in shade and half in sun. I looked through Houzz for ideas and was taken with the work that Jocelyn had posted and with her resume. We had a consult and again I admired her knowledge of plants and hard scape. She developed a plan for me and I was impressed by her professionalism and timely manner and how she was able to incorporate my wants in her final project. Of course, it is winter but part 2 is coming once the area is landscaped according to her plan.
