4 Reviews for Gates & Croft Horticultural Design
I had a wonderful experience working with Jane Gates and I highly recommend her! Earlier this month, I left messages with several landscape designers in my area - and Jane was the first of 3 to respond. During our initial call, Jane asked many questions about my yard redesign ideas, budget, timeline and the overall look I hoped to achieve. It was very apparent to me that she had both an artistic eye and a project management background combined with her expertise in horticultural design. For those reasons, I chose Jane to develop a landscape design plan for me. During her visit, she took measurements, asked additional questions about color, design concepts and what I wanted to do with my existing plants. I was apparent she was very familiar with my area's micro-climate and which new plants would work best. Then she drew a detailed landscape map that was easy to interpret and which I have brought with me to my nursery to purchase plants and rocks. I found Jane to be professional, courteous, and very, very knowledgeable. I am so glad I listened to my gut and chose to work with her. I hope you do the same!
Jane Gates helped with landscaping in my back yard. This involved helping to select plants, plant placement, water feature planning, and whether or not to plant grass.
I had the pleasure of working with Jane Gates recently to consult on a patio landscaping project. I also attended one of her professional seminars on drought tolerant plants. Jane is personable, knowledgeable, and professional. Not only that, but she was able to tailor her patio-scaping recommendations to me based on my personality, which gave me even more enjoyable results than if she had only based her designs on color, sun, and environmental conditions. Jane truly knows how to pull everything together for her clients on time and within budget. She is a joy to work with, and I highly recommend her. I will definitely work with her again.
I have worked with Jayne of Gates and Croft for over 10 years. She has always done a remarkable job. She takes great pride in her work and makes sure everything is in exactly the right place. I live on a 2 acre property so there is always more landscaping that can be done. Jayne is always up for the challenge. What makes her unique is the variety of plants she chooses. They are different than what I see everywhere else and they are always beautiful and interesting. It's so enjoyable to see all the unusual plants that are chosen not only for their beauty but also to fit the environment. I would recommend Jayne to anyone who wants landscaping that is truly artistic and will stand the test of time.
